Having hair around nipples.

Doctor, I am 8 months pregnant. I have hair around my nipples. A doubt raised in mind if it poses problem to my baby later during feeding. What is the safe way to remove them? Hair around nipples is present even before I conceived. Kindly suggest.

  1. Hello and thank you for posting on Medimetry.It is normal to have hair growth on nipples and this hair growth increases in pregnancy due to increase in hormone levels.They will not interfere with breastfeeding.If you are concerned and worried you can get them removed by shaving or waxing.Do not try laser or depilatory creams during pregnancy.If you have any more concerns please write back to us at Medimetry. Hope it helped.Best wishes and regards!
