Why do I suddenly have more body hair?

While the hair on your head sheds less during pregnancy, you may experience an increased amount of body and facial hair. You can go ahead and blame the increase in the androgen hormone (aka dude hormones). To get at those pesky hairs, you can tweeze, wax or shave. Avoid chemicals like bleach or depilatories, as they can enter your bloodstream. Also table the permanent hair-removing techniques like laser or electrolysis for after babe as they might cause excess pigmentation. Not to worry, this extra hair should be gone three to six months after you deliver.
