Harry It's not supposed to happen but it also happened to me before. I went on meds to stop my periods because of it and then I went into a normal cycle after that. It was very odd but I guess it happens sometimes.
In this day and age, there is no “norm” for pubic hair. It all boils down to preference. I have done everything. Let it grow wild and free, keep it trim and tidy but not shave it, and shave it completely. Out of all of those, I definitely prefer it trimmed and tidy. I find it helps with body order smell, and I feel cleaner when I’m on my period because it doesn’t get messy. I believe each choice has its merits!
I am not going to repeat what everyone else says, except to say that I agree with them: it’s your body. You can take your partners preference into consideration, but don’t let it rule you! I like my men trimmed up nicely too (makes oral easier), but in no way would I Be grossed out or offended if he didn’t want to groom his nether regions (as long as it’s clean of course haha)
Omg Samia. 5 month period??? That sounds awful. I have the opposite problem: I have PCOS, and without hormones will go months and months without a period. Hormones are so weird!
I'm going to be completely unfiltered here so apologies in advance
Firstly, if he has a problem with a certain thing and finds it gross, he isn't worth it! A real guy doesn't give a fudgsicle about it
Currently I'm a complete shaver, but until late 2016 I hadn't ever done anything to it. Shaving is effort, you have to be an acrobat and with me I'm in a constant state of itchy if I go against the grain rather than with it, which causes a lot of irritation and annoyance, but mainly I kept it because it hid my lady area because I'm VERY self conscious about it as I have a very chunky upper pubic area, it's normal but not that common so I've always had a problem with it. so I just didn't shave to hide it
but yes, I've gotten used to shaving at this point, when I first got with my boyfriend I hadn't done anything to it except given it a trim, I was so worried but when it got down to it he didn't mention it, because in his own words 'if I don't shave i can't expect you to do the same' right on for that
I started shaving for hygiene reasons, I never felt clean with it no matter what so it's just less stressful to spend an extra 5-10 minutes in the shower removing it than complaining I feel forever unclean
guys will always have preferences, my bf prefers it completely hairless (but he always says he misses the 'pube fro' because it was 'fun to play with' XD, THANKS BABE ¬.¬) whereas his friend prefers to have at least a 'landing strip' because he hates completely bare!
It's not weird to ask at all, it's always good to be open with your partner and if it weirds them out then they're definitely not mature enough to be near your downstairs region in the first place. It's the same with consent, you have to talk about what's okay, what's not, kinks, turn off's, turn on's, and shaving is normally something that drops into that spectrum (usually because of uhh, oral reasons)
but yes, do it for you and not for them! but if you WANT to do it for them, then that's your choice, but as long as you're doing it because YOU want to then go for it!
also Stormie ⛈️ I'm glad I'm not the only one, when I first got on my new pill I bled NON STOP for 3 months it was the worst 3 months of my life ;.;
