Removing nipple hair

This is the only reason I'm glad my breasts haven't began to get more sensitive. I still have dark thick hair growing in the nipple area, and in the "clevage" area. Laser is not an option nor is electrolysis, and I'm hesitant to use the Moom 4 Men on the nipples since it advises not to, plus, waxing hair in general really does hurt.

This is a problem that, in all likelihood, will disappear after you've been on HRT for a year or two (if you haven't already been on it for that long already). Chest hair and body hair are among those regions that HRT seems to have a good effect on for most. Even if the hair doesn't completely disappear, it should become thin enough to shave off easily.

It will take between 18 months to two years for hair in that area to change in texture and color to the point that a little bit of careful shaving in the shower will take care of the problem with the hair. Use a women's body razor for now with a smear of shampoo or hair conditioner lotion and it will be a bit prickly at first, but as E takes over the hair you will be able to go for days before it will be seen. I had fairly thick blackish hair in the whole belly area when I began HRT. What is there now, is "baby fuzz" where there is any hair at all, and I only shave the area every month or two. I do get what are called rogue hairs inside the aureola every now and then, but they pluck out almost painlessly.

Your body hair, like head and beard hair grows in cycles over the 2 year window, and once a hair has completed its growth cycle and falls out, the follicle goes dormant for a while. It is in the dormancy phase that the Estrogen takes it over and it comes awake again in female mode a few weeks later.

A good question about what seems such an annoyance. Showering and noticing hairs where they just belong is truly a bummer. You have had great advice above. Time helps....another one of those changes that takes patience. I use the sideburn trimmer on my electric razor to tenderly get the odd survivor.

I have the estrogen peach fuzz down from woolly mammoth. Works for me. I wish I could post the before and after picture but I think it treads badly on T&C. I'm wearing a bra of course, when I show the picture to friends I don't want them gawking at my girls. Giggle. They all say WOW, estrogen did that?

Every month, month and a half I use Nair. I follow the directions religiously. I use it all over my body. I don't put it on my face, head or badge (triangle on the bottom). I use a shower cap too. It takes off areola strays like a champ. Hey, it works for me. Hug. JodyAnn

That will lighten and/or disappear on HRT after a while. You may still have a few strands on the aereola, but many women do anyway and that doesn't take long to shave off in the shower.

Thanks girls. I'm glad it's a time thing and not reliant on my own ways of removing it. HRT has definitely been a huge waiting game to say the least.

Stay safe,

      See at this point idk what’s real feelings and what’s my ocd getting to me. I can say I found out I have feelings for my coworker who is a guy(amab and straight). When I think of him and wanting to be happy… it brings me to tears

      Sorry to hear that.  Take some allergy meds.   I had the same experience when my brothers and I were cleaning out our father's house.  He hadn't cleaned since his wife died 9 years earlier.  This was long before covid so I didn't have a mask handy.  Fortunately, his neighbour was a nurse and gave me a mask to wear.  Definitely mask up if you have to go back there.

      Well, just when I thought I'd turned a corner....the bus hits me.   I've been working with an aging aunt and uncle for almost two years. My uncle was in memory care nursing and passed away last October. My aunt was in and out of the hospital, rehab and her apartment for most of that time. I finally convinced her that she needed to be in skilled nursing and moved her to a facility close to us.   Since then I've been working to get her apartment cleared, cleaned and transition her to Medicaid.    I've spent the last two days at her apartment - a 1.5 hour drive each way - having it cleared and then cleaning it. SHe just wasn't able to clean for herself and the apartment was filled with dust and grime. Last night, after breathing it all in all dal I think I set off an allergy and I have been sick as a dog. Sore throat, congestion, tired, I've slept almost all day and, as my wife has told me several times, I look like hell.   This is really the first I've sat with my Surface all day...and I'm in bed.   Tuesday, I drive back down to have the final inspection and turn in the keys.   Our puppy is now 14 weeks and almost 30 pounds. She had a vet visit on Thursday for her distemper booster and the vet said she is "perfect." She's totally house trained and on her way out of the Velociraptor phase. What a doll she is.   Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!!

      That is an awesome shirt @Ivy
    • Mmindy
      That’s fantastic news and just as @Vidanjalipoints out there are two great realizations in your post. Acceptance by your parents and starting HRT soon.    Congratulates and enjoy the ride.   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      My daughter sent me this t-shirt.  So I wore it to our local Pride Picnic.

      Wonderful news, hon.  I'm very happy for you.  You will make great progress very soon.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Glad you are going to a Pride picnic.  I never know in advance what I am going to get to do.  And by the time I do know it’s too late to sign up.  Working is the pits but I am making progress towards being able to quit once and for all, again.  I just don’t know what I’ll be able to do after I’m no longer working because I had to give up all the things I liked to do.   the only way I get a particular day off is to schedule way in advance such as my doctors appointments and church things.  Which reminds me I have some future events I need to put on my need off schedule for October and January.     het @Mmindy just a little play humor there.  Our dog is getting older but as a puppy she was all but housebroken when we picked her up. Just needed to learn a new environment and we had to learn her puppy signals.  We put in an underground fence and she learned to recognize the warning without getting zapped.  When we took her to obedience school she was a quick learner for all but the reason we took her, don’t jump up on people. Learned to Use a bell.  Learned to open lever doors to go out and in.  Still doesn’t like going out in the rain.  Taught us how to interact with her sign language.  And has been a very smart dog.  Her sister is still kept in a cage when no one is home.  Sweetie doesn’t even have one.   best dog ever but will be our last dog when her life ends.  Best to end being dog parents with your best dog.  And yes she is a family member, not a pet.   Willow

      That’s fantastic news! I know this can be such a hard situation, but it sounds as though you dealt with it brilliantly. Congratulations, and much respect to your parents for listening.
    • Vidanjali
      @hormonedifficientin2ways congratulations! Perhaps it's hard to say which is most affirming, getting to start T or having had your parents finally validate you. Two different realms of euphoria. Best wishes.

      That’s fantastic! 🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈🌈   🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      We're having our 2nd annual Pride Picnic today!

      @Willow since my wife and I drink different coffee blends, and the puppy gets me up way earlier than I had become accustomed to in retirement. He and I are up and sharing the morning alone, because the wife still sleeps in.    Parker had the last of his puppy vaccinations and wellness check up yesterday weighing in at 24.2 pounds at 13 weeks old. He’s responding well to training and is mostly potty trained. We’re using the sleigh bell method for marking the door to get outside, and waiting for him to bark at the door before letting him in. He understands not to rush the door or gate when we’re moving through them.    Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
