Basically, I was diagnosed with PCOS around 2 years ago and I hace hair literally everywhere a girl normally doesn’t (light hair on stomach and back, my butt and some on my chest but it’s so light, you can’t really see it on my chest)
I have started waxing my legs and arms and the hair has come back a lot thinner which is good but I shave my stomach and lower back... is that a good idea?
I know PCOS can cause excessive hair but my mom who doesn’t have PCOS is in a similar position so I’m wondering whether it’s actually genetic?

If your hairy it doesn't matter that much just shave all over

I thought everyone has hair except on the palms of their hands and bottom of feet. I'm quite a hairy girl to be honest.

Very normal, it just seems to be some girls like to shave it all off. You don’t have to of course!
