Any time your body noticeably changes, you might find yourself getting a little bit alarmed. Whether it's that you seem to be losing more hair than you normally do, your period is slightly different, you have a dry patch of skin that seems a bit odd, or anything else, when something changes, it's natural to want to keep an eye on it or potentially question if it could be a sign something's wrong. As it turns out, there are some signs your facial or body hair growth is a medical red flag about which you might want to chat with your doctor if you notice them.
Paying attention to changes in your body whenever you can is important. It can help you raise a concern with your doctor sooner than you might otherwise (or sooner than they might otherwise catch on to a concern), which can mean addressing the potential issue sooner as well, which is typically a very good thing. Hair growth on your body or face might not be that big of a deal to you initially, but when it becomes more noticeable, you might find it a bit embarrassing or frustrating that you even have it in the first place. Fretting about these things likely isn't helping you feel any better, but knowing that there might be a reason for it just might help give you a little peace of mind (however little that might be, given that there might be something wrong) — and help you figure out how to address it, if that's something that you need to do.
