This does not only affect their beauty but also brings huge mental burdens and sufferings to them. What on earth this kind of things come about? Let’s take a look at it.

The reasons to grow beard on women: the hair growth is controlled and adjusted by nerve, internal secretion system. Among them, the influence of the internal secretion of testosterone is the most obvious reason. The testosterone can stimulate the growth of hair cells. Testosterone can stimulate the hair growth on the parts of body, four limbs, armpits and pubic hair. So for people who are short of armpit and pubic hair, locally injecting testosterone can make the hair regrowth. So when testosterone metabolism becomes abnormal, the hair growth would become abnormal and see the long beard of women.
