In the past few months I developed alot of hair growing over my lip. I never had this problem before. I was on Dianette (diane) for a number of years and came off it last October but this problem only developed around April. I went back on dianette in August but the problem is still there. I bleach it but it appears long and thick & my boyfriend has said it to me a few times & I've become really paranoid about it. Any advice anyone??
Dianette is one of the medications used to prevent unwanted hair. It was obviously working for you since you grew hair once you stopped taking it. Unfortunately, taking it again will only help prevent new growth, it won't affect the hair that developed while you weren't taking it. An electrologist can get rid of those hairs for you, permanently.
I've been having exact same problem (but naturally, not due to medications). I was considering electrolysis too, but was didn't risk it due to high cost and some side-effects. I've been recommended Epicare - a small spring-like device that works like threading. It removes facial hair from roots and it's cheap and safe to use. I got it on amazon. Now I can't imagine how I lived without it before.
