Hairs next to my nipples, is this normal


I would like to find out if a few hairs next to my nipples is normal, I've had them since puberty, not alot, 1 next to my left breast and about 6 next to my right

Hey, I'm wondering if it can be hormonal levels being Wack and the reason for not falling preggies, please ladies I'm dead serious!!!

My husband asked me the other day if I should have, never gave it a second thought up to then. I used to cut them shorter, they just keep on growing and growing...

Dark hair (like pubic hair)

Many women have these. Unless you have unwanted hair elsewhere, e.g. on your face or tummy, it may indicate a high testosterone.

Hairs around the nipple are normal, especially if you have had them for so long. One sign of PCOS is hair growing there but there are other signs of this like not ovulating or getting a period and if these things are fine then I wouldn't worry about it at all.
