No need to shave: There is no need to shave pubic hair. The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair. Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave pubic hair. It's just fashion. If one is a teen, she has many other more important things to do, so pubic hair should not be an issue. ...Read more

Call your GYN: I don't have your risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia or ca, but usually bleeding like you're describing, warrants a quick hemoglobin check to make sure you're not at risk from severe anemia. If your HGB is good, it can wait for a regular appointment. If you have symptoms such as feeling faint, jittery, light-headed, or racing pulse-you might be sent to the nearest er. So, call your gyn now. ...Read more
