I have been shaving around the edges of my pubic hair, just to keep it even. I never shave more than just the edges, but was wondering if it is bad to do? Could it cause infections? Also, is there anyway, to trim it without making a big mess? My mother doesn't know(I'm 15), and I don't think she would let me keep doing it if she found out, but it is very uncomfortable, so, are there any ways, that I could trim it, and not leave a trace of evidence? I thought about doing it over the toilet, but would the hairs stick to the side of the bowl when I flush? Lol, ya weird question, I know, but I could really use the advice! Thanks! Also, my mother hasn't seen me naked in three years, but has gotten close to walking in on me getting dress, lol, so that's why I want to know how to hide the evidence, because the only proof she has, is from the evidence. Thanks again!
It's not bad to shave it, a lot of women do that actually. The best thing would be to do it over the toilet because it does not stick to the sides, it completely flushes. Just make sure there isn't any on the seat.
Shaving can give you ingrown hairs, but it won't give you infections unless you cut yourself of course.
I suggest you pluck or wax the hairs around the area that you can see when wearing a bikini because if you shave it gets all pokey and it doesn't look good. It's best to shave the parts that are concealed beneath your bikini/underwear and pluck on the outside that is exposed is what I'm saying :)
Ok, good, that's a huge relief! I was never really sure if it was normal to do it. I don't wear bikinis, but still, no problem with the answer. :)
Shaving is very very common! You're very normal :)
