My kid used to tease me about my moustache before the surgery, but yes, it has gotten worse since. I am now sporting or attemptin to sport a better beard than my DH who is very hairy. I had a testosterone shot and I notice there are more hairs now then before. And the worst part is, just between you and me, I had to buy a nose hair trimmer last week.

You are not alone.....
Hugs to you
Kat, the bearded lady!!

Yes since my surgery, I am now seeing some hair on my lip & more hair in my nose. I did not have hair on any part of my face before the sugery, but it is there now, I hope it does not grow too much.

If it gets too bad, we can all run away together and join the circus. (Do they still have circuses? ) If not we could start one

That is what makes this place so great!! Susan, it is not politically correct anymore, and derogatory and discriminatory to have the 'bearded ladies' in the circus, at least here in Canada, and i assume the States, but it is ok. We have something much better. We have a bearded sisterhood, where we are loved for more than our beards, and moustaches....We are not judged and I am actually waiting for Kathy to have a beard growing contest!!!

Kat, you crack me up! What I've noticed though is as the hair on the face increases, the hair on the legs is decreasing - except for my left big toe - what's up with that?

Just got done plucking!! I've always been hairy. Once I went for electrolysis and the zapper lady said it was my Nordic and Scottish heritage. Thanks a lot, you celts!!

I'd like to go get zapped again, but it is $60.00 an hour!!

A few years ago I worked with a woman in her sixties that told me her pits and legs stopped getting so much hair after hyst, but that she grew sideburns and a mustache. How unfair is that!!

I am growing more on my face now and I asked the doc about it. Now, ladies for the GOOD news!! He said I probably pump a bit too much testosterone. He said he doesn't want to dink around with my hormones for a while, but informed me that women with testosterone tend to be more sexual!!

I guess as long as it doesn't get soooo bad that my honey gets a turn off from it that's good, right?????

I have curleyques in my sideburns. The hair that grows on the sides of my face is very long and even though it's blonde I have to um...kind of slick it down. One time the beautician came at me with the buzzers!! The other night I was laying with my head in my honey's lap and he started stroking my face. It felt great until I realized he was kind of grooming me!! Wah!!! I haven't had to use a comb yet!!

Gotta have a sense of humor about this. Tell me about that stock in Gillette, okay?

Have any of the rest of you noticed that Nair for the face does nothing or if it does anything at all it just kind of fries the ends? And...I learned the hard way that if you leave it on longer (I know it comes with warnings...but when you are desperate) it really does cause burns!!!

I to have a beard and mustache. Nobody but my family knows since I shave it daily. I am thinking about try Lazer hair removal. Has anyone tried it? They have a tech. who does it at my Gynocologists office. The flyer says it works really well on fair skinned people. I am Scottish and ???. I hope it doesn't get worse due to my Hyst. The other day at work my coworker told me I needed to look in the mirror at my nose. When I did there was one 1/4" long hair sticking out of it. I immediately pulled it and thanked her. It was not there that morning I swear. I am very careful to look at my nose because my nostrils are very visable. My DH also complains that since he has turned forty+ he has hairs that grow wild suddenly. Oh the tricks mother nature plays on us as we age.
