Question
Hi , I'm jaime a girl , I'm just about  to go on holiday and my dads only bought me bikinis I don't mind wearing them but I have a really hairy back and belly and I don't think that's normal for a girl? And all my friends wear bikinis but I'm too scared they make fun of me! What should I do?

Answer
Well there are several things you could do the first is the one that I highly recommend and unfortunately it is the hardest but in the long run is the best idea. I know it is been said before but it is true, you need to be comfortable in your own skin no matter what anyone thinks of you. Who cares if you have a little more hair then what is accepted its what make you unique. Now I know that this may bring on teasing if you decide to do nothing and accept your body the way it is but you shouldn't have to change your looks just to fit in.

I know that probably wasn't the answer you wanted so here are some more options to get rid of unwanted body hair. First you could try shaving. This is the easiest and cheapest means to get rid of unwanted body hair but it is only temporary meaning you have to keep up on the shaving or else it will grow back. You could try waxing this is a little quicker but the materials for waxing can be expensive you can also get it professionally done but again it is expensive. The last method of hair removal is laser hair removal or other products like that. These are by far the most expensive means of removing hair but they last the longest. There are two types the first is only done by professionals which means more money and its permanent hair removal. The other type is where you use high frequency light to essentially burn the hair away these are offered both professionally and home products. The only home hair removal product like this is called the no no and you can find it online or by phone off of commercials.



I hope this answered your questions.

I can answer any type of questions relating to puberty, sex, or anything having to do with growing up. I can help you understand whatís going on with your body or why youíre feeling the way that you are. I can help you understand what it means to go through puberty and what to expect as you progress through it. I am a young so I have gone through the same stuff you are; so I can answer these questions better seeing as how I went through it myself. Even if you feel you are the only one who is feeling the way that you are feeling chances are you are not alone. Everyone goes through puberty and has had similar experiences to what you are having. I have been with All Experts for about a year and a half now in the teen problems category. I have a vast university library at my disposal; I have yet to find a question that I cannot find the answer to in my universityís library. If you prefer to talk one on one more privately please feel free to ask me to do so and I will be happy to chat with you via email or some other form or private messaging. I know that some questions and concerns are a little more personal then you want to allow to be public.

Seeing as how I was recently a teen I know what kinds of changes you are going through. Anything I do not know I will research it and find out for you. I have a vast university library at my disposal, which seems to have the answers to any question you may have. I am just a caring high school graduate and all I want to do is to help anyone and everyone that needs it. I always try to provide the best answers that I can, furthermore I will never judge you no matter what the question is so feel free to ask me anything. I am here to answer those questions you think are silly or too embarrassing. Sometimes those "silly" questions are some of the most important ones so please ask them all. I also will be happy to answer those questions you are too embarrassed to ask you parents or you feel they will get mad at you for asking. I will not set a private question to public and I will not tell anyone what you tell me. ALL information discussed in the private questions stays between you and me. However if you have a question chances are someone else in the world has that same exact question so keep your questions public unless you absolutely want it to be private either way I will help you out as much as you need it. I want to help you get any and all questions answered and I will not rest until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
