Do I have a hormonal imbalance?

I am 16 years old and I feel like a have more body hair than most other women. Its very embarassing and doesnt seem normal. I have been researching hormone imbalances but I want a professional opinion before I talk to my mom about seeing a doctor. The hair is on my upper lip, my arms, my abdomen, and some on my chest

Welcome to ehealthforum

It seems that you are suffering from Hormonal Imbalance.Excessive facial hair can be due to excess of hormones.
Consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation and Hormonal Analysis.

Take Care!
