Just had an arguement with my girlfriend. admittedly we are on either end of the spectrum. At this point in my life I shave nothing. Used to shave legs, armpits, crotch area, etc. But my hair grew back in just a few hours and I got sick of the time and pain and money of getting waxed. so I dumped the whole shebang well before I met my husband. I must have been in my late 20's, early 30's.
My girlfriend waxes every fucking thing - arms, back, tummy, crotch, pubic hair, legs, pits, etc.
Last night I found out my girl is shaving her pubic hair when she gets her period. She has been complaining about these bumps she is getting and she finally showed me today the ones on her legs near her crotch. They looked just like in grown hairs or hair coming back after being shaved. She denied that she shaved there. Then she flapped her hand toward her vagina and said something about shaving there when she gets her period. I freaked.
Shaving your vagina at age 13? WTF? Who told her to do this? I am SURE it was my girlfriends daughter. This girl is VERY VERY OCD. She windexes her folders.
Whatever the reason was I want my kid to stop. My girlfriend says it is her body, she can decide. I remember a few years ago my cousin who is a nurse practitioner told me that mostly ALL of the woman coming into Planned Parenthood clinic with STD's had not one hair on their vagina. Somehow I got the impression it was not good to shave everything. Won't it grow back and itch like shit each time? And won't the hairs be coarser?
Help! I don't know a damn thing about this. I do know what to do about the bumps - tea tree oil helps, girlfriend said to use neosporin ointment and witch hazel.
