Doctor insights on:
I Am Losing My Pubic Hair
Not clear: Some think the hair increases the surface area to transmit pheromones for sexual allure. Others see it as a means for lessening friction during sexual activity. Many simply shave it off or at least lessen it for beauty sake. There is no definitive answer.
SCISSOR/CLIPPERS/RAZ: If the pubic hair is longer than1/4 inch use a scissor or clipper to trim and than get in the shower and let pubic area soak and apply shaving cream/gel to one side of your pubic area and shave short strokes and rinse the razor often. Use a mirror to shave the lower area go down to in between your legs repeat the other side of pubic region and let warm water run and you are done.See 1 more doctor answer
Pubic hair: It is believed that the functions of pubic hair include the dissemination of pheromones and protection from the friction of sexual intercourse. Natural selection may also have sustained it because it can show a potential sexual partner that the other person is sexually mature and can reproduce.
Very carefully: Personal preference with pubic hair "trimming." generally best to shave after the bath/shower when your pores oare open form the warm water temperature. Find a shaving ceam that is best for sensitive areas, and be careful.
Germ protection: The coarse texture is meant to trap dirt and bacteria, and keep it out of inner genitalia. It has also been said that pubic hair forms an air pocket to keep the area cool. Another purpose of pubic hair is to give off pheromones, which are supposed to help attract a mate.See 1 more doctor answer
Grooming: Grooming questions are out of bounds at the doctor's office. One does not go to the doctor for grooming tips. This is a medical site. Grooming has nothing to do with health or medical conditions. Grooming is a personal choice not a disease.See 1 more doctor answer
Trem or shave: Different cultures may have preferred norms for pubic hair, ranging from completely removed, to styled, to natural. I preffer to trem it because easeier and dose not cause the irritation it happen in shaving.
You cannot.: Pubic hair is genetically programmed to be quite coarse. Conditioners cannot change the nature of the hairs, especially if trimmed. Thinning scissors are used by hair dressers & may help soften the overall texture. Waxing will allow regrowth with tapered ends; less coarse than clipped or shaved hairs. Otherwise, complete hair removal & shaving are the only way to really eliminate the problem.
Puberty (pubarche): Pubic hair is a secondary sexual characteristic that appears under the influence of androgenic hormones during puberty. The timing depends on the individual, but usually between age 10-13. The development is described by the tanner scale. Disorders of hormonal development can lead to precocious puberty, resulting in the abnormally early development of pubic hair.
JustWaitForManopause: Well, looking at your current age I'd guess for you it's maybe 50.For the normal person, like me & the rest of the (known)world they start sprouting in the earlier stages of puberty (like, 9 years of age) & take maybe 2-5 years before they'd impress the seniors at summer camp, when puberty is just about ending & when the base realities of the world begin. I bet you can't wait for the nose and ear hairs!
