    Please keep anon as I don't want my friends knowing this.

    Basically I have stretch marks all over my body, my breasts, thighs and hips.
    Ive had these since I was 14 and often thought that they would go away with time, but Im now 19 and they're bringing my self esteem down to the lowest its ever been.
    I cant wear the clothes I want to wear in fear of knowing that they will be on show and Ive never been close with a guy before as I hate my body therefore feel that he will also hate my body.

    Im considering getting laser surgery to get rid of them but would just like to know your thoughts before I go ahead with it.
    Before you start saying that i need to accept who I am and live life, I cant I have been doing so for years and I can't fight it any longer, also Ive tried every stretch mark removal cream that you can think of!
    My stretch marks are the white/silver ones - the ones that are meant to stay on your skin forever, but It does say there is a chance that the laser surgery will get rid of these.

    Please help and tell me what you think? Thanks

    have you tried stuff like bio oil thats suppose to work great.
    can you talk to your doctor about it? and find more information?

    Bio Oil sucks IMO. Didn't do a thing for me. :p:

    I have them everywhere too - the same places as you, and I even have them on the back of my knees lol. I was considering laser surgery in the future - but I hear it's not 100% guaranteed to work, so it could be a complete waste of money. You need to learn to accept them; everyone has them, honest! Don't let them put you off loving your body!
