Really getting fed up with facial hair. What's best thing to do?

I have always had a slight tash and up until a few years ago bleached. Decided to have it waxed which has been ok. Since having waxed though I have more hairs on my chin and under my lip. Is this normal? I feel like such a freak as nobody else seems to have it?? I am 33.
I want to have laser but apparently my hairs are too fine. What does everyone else do?

it may be hormone related. Sorry not much help

There are loads of us who have it. You just haven't noticed. It really is very common, and often hormonal.

Waxing suits me; I can't use creams, hated electrolysis and can't afford laser treatment. If I leave it, I have a full moustache and a beard which I can make a little plait out of, but I'm not that keen on making a statement so waxing it is!

I have it bad, I have it all over really blush Have gynae probs but apparently blood tests for PCOS are -ve as are ovary scans...

But I have so many of the PCOS symptoms. I bleach it all, arms everything, apart from the things people normally shave eg legs, under arms and "lady bits". Bleaching it for me gives me some control over it but it doesnt have to be done all the time so doesnt take over my life. I guess it depends how thick the hair is? Mines really fine but dark, so bleaching it makes it much much less noticable.
