Sunday Chin Hair Count #2 and Weekly Roundup

Posted on

Another week, another chin hair count. And the results are?

Week #2:


17 chin hairs plucked from my chin. Ah ha haaaa.

Week #1: 15


Up two chin hairs from last week, so perhaps my “anti-androgenic” spearmint tea “exSPEARMINT” (God, I crack myself up) is not doing the trick. In all fairness, I was not drinking it twice a day all 7 days. Next week, I will try to be completely consistent.

Given Friday’s meltdown over the whole not ovulating/not getting my period thing, I am going to work this week on focusing on what makes me relaxed and happy. If I want sugar, I’m going to eat sugar. Bread/carbs? Fuckit. I’m eating all the crackers I want. Exercise tends to help me relax, so I’m going to try and do it before work this week. If not, no sweat. I need to loosen the grip on myself.

I posted my question about medical costs on Soul Cysters, and got back some great responses which I will re-post next week as I update my entry on Costs of Treatment.


Spearmint Tea and Chin Hair Count

Posted on

So, I realized that I forgot to update everyone on Sunday about my weekly chin hair count. I’m sorry! I know you had been losing sleep over that.

It was 15.

15 glorious hairs pulled from my chin/jaw line area last week due to high androgen levels in my body.


As Al Gore would say, you can find anything on his internet these days, so I’ve been researching some holistic approaches to decreasing androgen levels. Spearmint Tea has somehow topped the list of antiandrogenic elixirs, so I thought I would give it a go.

I’ve been drinking two cups a day for the last 4 days. This Sunday, I will divulge the results of my highly non scientific chin hair count test. Less chin hair may mean that my body is producing less androgens due to the minty goodness of the spearmint tea. I’m sure I may have to give it a couple of months to really see results, but you never know. I’d love it to drag out and take a really long time for my chin hair problem to correct itself because plucking chin hairs is sexy and fun.
