Sexologist 's  Response
Kindly get your tri-pooled free testosterone level at 9 AM. If it is normal, then your hormonal profile is normal. Growth of hair on body is largely governed by Hormonal levels but this in turn is affected by genetic makeup. Some people have less growth of hair, despite normal hormonal profiles, running in families, while others have one or two members not having proper growth while others have good growth. This is explained by a newer explanation in Genetics and it is known by the name- EPIGENETICS. It means you have the genes meant to stimulate hair growth at adolescence but they are not turned on ie they remain non functional.
I am explaining this to you just to make sure that in case, your all reports are normal and Doctors ultimately conclude that their isn't going tobe a significant growth, you don't try silly things available in market

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The distribution of the hairs on the body are governed by hormones in our body and in many cases it is genetic like the son has hair growth like his father or grandfather.So since your hormonal levels are normal no reason to worry buy the only thing you need to find out is the hair growth of your father and grand father.If any of them has had less growth or a delayed hair growth of beard and moustache even you may face the same.Still you are 22 yrs so no reason to get disheartened and you can still wait.
