Why You Shouldn’t Be Shy About Nipple Hair

So, the topic of hair growing on or around the nipples is not really a part of everyday conversation, but it is completely normal for both guys and women, and it is not a cause for concern or shame. That’s why.

It may come as a surprise to some women (and to a lesser extent men) that you can actually grow hair around your nipples, but this video from Stuff Mom Never Told You explains that areoles are actually surrounded by hair follicles, so in this nothing out of the ordinary. Moreover, a decent percentage of women are genetically predisposed to regrow more nipple hair than others due to their hormones.

However, nipple hair can become a problem if you grow a lot more hair there and in other atypical places than usual, in addition to a disturbed menstrual cycle. Two or more missed cycles in a row should prompt you to see your doctor for a checkup.
