Many women experience hairy nipples, you are not alone and you aren’t a freak ! A few underlying causes can lead to the growth of nipple hairs. Most of them are very common, which helps explain why hairy nipples are common; Hormonal changes, overproduction of male hormones, the use of certain medications, poly cystic ovary syndrome.
Trimming the hairs is the least risky option to do at home. I understand you feel self conscious about it when you feed in public, but really nobody can see your nipples up close (other then yourself, your husband and your baby who’s breastfeeding).
