What causes excessive chin hair growth ? Could it be a result of hormonal imbalance or is it due to vitamins and BCP taken by me ?

I am 25 years female. I have never taken birth control pills . I have started taking prenatal and some other vitamins like E and B12. I have fibrosis so my doctor recommended taking vitamin E. I have started developing chin hair and it is looking very bad. My body weight is 132 but my body fat is very high 33%. I read online that obesity may cause the hair growth. I am wondering am I taking excess amount of vitamins that is causing problem. I am thinking to go to gynecologist to check my hormones level. Please guide me through this. What will be the cause of my chin hair growth.

Chin hairs indicate ovulation problem due to harmonal imbalance .Your thinking is correct. PLease get your harmone level&sonography done .Please dont worry The condition is reversible.Only proper treatment by Gynac &endocrinologistis needed.The vitamines you are taking are not related to hairs on chin.

For time being, you can think of electrolysis by butitian,this will enhance your confidence.&side by side treatment by specialists would control the problem.
