I am 18 and I have poly cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). One of the symptoms is hair growth, such as facial hair, abdomen hair, and hair growing between the labia. I'm taking birth control pills to treat my PCOS and my doctor informed me that the hair growth and the other symptoms of this condition will start going away in a few months. I can handle the facial hair with hair removal cream, but the hair between the labia is a problem. I shave my pubic area on a regular basis, all except for the problem hairs. I can't use a razor because there is a very high risk of me accidentally cutting the inside of my labia and hair removal cream is dangerous to put there. I've tried pulling it out with tweezers, but it hurts because of the super sensitive skin. I want to get rid of this hair because it itches and I am embarassed about the hair if I end up having a sexual partner before it clears up. Does anyone, a doctor or someone else with PCOS, preferably, know how I could trim this hair

    1. Those hairs should be plucked.Here’s how to shave your pubic hair: 1st pluck/wax some of them while they’re long. Then cut the hairs short. Apply shaving cream or conditioner to the pubic area. Then shave upwards in the opposite direction of the hairs with a 5-bladed razor. Be sure to shave hard to make it smooth. Afterwords to avoid getting beginners side effects wash the area off with acne cleanser or anti-bacterial dishwasher soap. It only takes me 5 minutes to shave it I shave about 3x a week. If done right you will be incredibly smooth like me. If you do experience beginners side effects don’t panic, just put acne cream on the bumps, pop them if you can, keep up the shaving routine, they should go away within a month. It’s just like starting a new medicine. You could also try applying rubbing alcohol after you shave. That’ll help prevent red spots. Also try using one of those skin moisturizing bar soaps on the area after you shave it. That’ll make it really soft.You can also get it removed permanently with electrolysis which is painful costs $55 an hour. I’ve gotten 3 treatments on my pubic hair. Email me for more info about it.Here’s the benefits of pubic hair removal: The absence of pubic hair is erotic sensational. It’s easier to get sexually excited masturbate. You’ll feel sexier, younger, more naked when you’re naked. If you’re a girl your guy will be able to see your vulva when you’re naked. For girls it makes their periods easier to clean up because the hair traps in blood. It’s cleaner because hair traps in odors dirt is one less thing to wash when you take a shower. One of the reasons I started shaving is because pubic hair was a distraction when I saw that area, I would kill time twirling the hairs. Pubic hair can get caught in stuff like your zipper. you won’t leave long gross hairs on stuff. PSA you don’t need to be sexually active to shave that area. I have friends that are complete prudes that are into body hair removal.I believe my answer is the best would appreciate it if you chose it best.

    2. I don’t know much about PCOS, but I do know that tweezing the hair down there can cause an infection. Don’t tweeze. I shave down there too and also have hair between the labia, the only thing I can do is use a really really good razor, no cheap disposables, lots of soap, and do it carefully. I really do think the quality of the razor is important. So far no cuts :)

    3. You can use a mirror to see what you’re doing while trimming hairs. If you’re willing to pay, you can always get a wax, which last much longer than shaving or trimming anyway.

    4. I understand that you’d like to get rid of it immediately, but in this case I suggest you make an appointment to get electrolysis. Even though your symptoms will go away after awhile, electrolysis will be a one time (hopefully) procedure to get rid of it and you won’t have to worry about it while waiting for symptoms to subside.
