Hi Anon,


Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. Sometime hair growth in a woman's body can be genetic.  But, other conditions can also cause these changes to your body.  Such asHormones known as androgens activate body hair growth. Androgens include common hormones such as testosterone. Although more common in men, androgens are also in women, produced in smaller amounts by the adrenal glands and ovaries. This makes body hair growth more common in men, but possible in women with hormonal imbalance, such as during a pregnancy or menopause. Diseases affecting the ovaries can increase body hair growth in women. This is due to the role ovaries play in keeping hormone levels balanced in the body.  It might be good to let your doctor know of these changes.  Through blood work, they can check hormonal levels. Hope this was helpful?
