Thanks for all your replies. I really appreciate it. Is it something you would recommend me going to see my gp for?

Just for a bit of context I was an early bloomer getting my period at 11 and I’ve stopped growing now too, I’m also on the fatter side.
If the hair growth is sudden, or if you have witnessed more symptoms along with the hair growth, then you definitely should!

I don't think it is much to worry about now, but if it gets worse I would consult with a doctor. I hope this helped

Is there anyone else in ur family who’s as hairy as u? Bc if there are (regardless of gender!) then probably not unless ur really concerned...
Well my mum doesn’t and I’ve grown up quite similar to her. The rest of my family are boys and I honestly don’t know what’s considered as overly hairy for them but I wouldn’t say they’re overly hairy either

I’ve tried getting my upper lip threaded and it makes me (unintentionally!) cry...
But epilating tbh doesn’t feel painful to me anymore and over the yrs the hair has gotten sparser too!
But the pain depends on the length of the hair in my experience... the longer the hair, the more painful so I epilate once a week...
Also with the facial wax strips I only use them when I’ve left my moustache for a few months... otherwise I use a facial epilator bc it gets smaller hairs out than waxing
ah i see. I thought it was so painful since it plucks the hair one by one whereas waxing just rips it off one time. Thank youuuu

Change in your menstrual cycle, weight, curves, mood, skin behaviour or maybe increased sensitivity or mood swings. Anything that could be affected by your hormones.

don’t be embarrassed, your GP are there for any problems, regardless how minor or major they are trust me, they’ve seen it all
I personally think the hair growth is normal but if it is bothering/worrying you, getting it checked would be a good idea.

By curves I mean gaining some hip mass or a cup size...nevertheless, please do not feel shy about it!

Trust me, it is more normal than you’d think.

Oh right I see thanks.

I’ve also looked into pcos but I don’t have any other symptoms so I’m not too sure. Still don’t know whether to go to my gp. Worried that they’ll say something about my weight too

I think it’s better to visit a GP if you’re that concerned than to live in dark.

Unless your weight concerns your health, they won’t. Don’t be scared.

It sounds like u understand that ur weight is harming ur health... maybe u should try to do smth abt it?

Either way, ur doctor isn’t going to be rude or condescending abt it, they’ll just make a suggestion if they think smth needs to be done abt it. Dw!
