Jo-Ann, what a story!! Never, never, never buy those miserable store hair removers. Yikes, the pain when you take them off.
I've opted for the tweezing method. If you have one of those mirrors that magnifies about 20x it's really very easy. I try to remember to check every morning to see what's sprung up literally overnight. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly a hair grows out of no where. Nothing at midnight, by eight in the morning a bunch of them out. Very peculiar.
I'm not sure if the cause of the hair is exactly the meds we all take. I'm thinking that may be part of it, but the aging process is probably playing a large part too. I often say that as I age, looking good costs me more and more money, LOL. What I really care about though is being HERE to age. I have a couple of different types of tweezers but most of the time I use the kind that's squared on the tip, rather than sharp pointed ones. I definitely need a magnifying mirror, can't see worth a darn otherwise.
Before BC I used to get waxed fairly frequently. After I finished tx I decided that I'd had enough pain inflicted on me and that I was no longer going to opt for it willingly. Imagine that a positive effect of BC, ah, will the wonder never cease!!!
So think about the tweezing route, but for heaven's sake, don't use those waxy type of store hair removers. It was probably invented by a man, just like the mammography machine. LOL!!! Hugs from here, Luci
