How do u shave/get rid of pubic hair for girls?

Everyone has pubic hair. People usually start to notice pubic hair around puberty. Pubic hair is a completely normal part of growing up.

Choosing whether or not to shave your genitals is a very personal decision.  Some people shave because they find it more attractive; some people don’t shave because they find having hair more attractive. In the end, your decision will come down to what you prefer–it’s your body!

Some people choose to shave or wax, and both are medically safe to do, and there isn’t really a right or wrong way for someone to shave their genitals.  Keep in mind that small cuts in the genital area make it easier for sexually transmitted infections to spread. If you do shave and happen to cut yourself, and you are sexually active, make sure you know whether or not your partner has STIs  and avoid intercourse until the cuts have healed. It is also a good idea to use condoms and/or dental dams during sexual contact to reduce the risk of STIs. Those who shave may experience itching when the hair begins to grow back in. They may also experience ingrown hairs, which is when a hair grows backward into the skin, causing inflammation and irritation.  However, plenty of healthy and happy people remove the hair from their genitals.

In the end, the choice is yours!

My vagina itches like CRAZY, right after I shower even, but it doesn’t burn when I urinate. However I do shave down there, could that be the problem? If so how could I shave to wear it doesn’t itch 24/7?

Vaginal itching can occur for all sorts of reasons. Some people with a vagina may experience yeast or bacterial vaginitis infections after intercourse; others may experience a reaction to spermicides or lubricants.  Itching can also be a symptom of some sexually transmitted infections.

The most important thing is to see a healthcare provider if the itching continues. Teen Clinic offers free or low-cost and confidential infection checks if you’re under 20. Just give us a call to schedule for the next possible day.

Is it really safe to shave down there? I was just concerned.
