Trimming Pubic Hair (Female)

    I have always had difficulty trimming the hair in my pubic area. Previously I would use a double bladed razor and a pair of scissors to trim the hair back. However, I always ended up with razor burn, and the hair would be cut in such an uneven manner that it would be very uncomfortable.

    I recently decided I couldn’t stand it anymore and went out bought an electric bikini razor designed specifically for trimming the bikini areas. I used it for the first time, and it helped immensely. No more razor burn, and the hair was trimmed even so it was finally comfortable.

    However, I ran into a new dilemma. It caused the pubic area to be itchy. I was wondering if others have had a similar experience and if so, how to mitigate it (special lotions or creams, etc.) (note: I have sensitive skin and often cannot use skin products that are scented.)

    Coconut oil. At room temp the oil looks like lard…white and once in your hand, melts instantly.

      So after years of shaving, I finally switched to getting a Brazillian wax every 5 weeks. Works great for us!

        I use dh’s beard trimmer to trim it short but not too short.  I discovered its a fine line between so short that it itches and and just long enough that its not uncomfortable.  I don’t remember what setting it is but I just know when I use it on that setting I don’t get itchy.  Maybe try experimenting with different lengths to see if some are better than others?

          I tried shaving for the first time not long ago. In preparation for my experiment I bought several things from the shaving aisle (I think they are Nair brand), one of which is some kind of after-shaving soothing cream or maybe a gel. I haven’t tried it yet so can’t personally vouch for it, but as soon as I’m allowed to try shaving again (post surgical recovery) I intend to because I also have had a very uncomfortable amount of itching!!

            I’m hoping you’ll get the answers you need.

            Over the years, this topic has been like your skin –  sensitive! So as a man, I’d better not say much. 😉

            But if I may say something, it seems a good number of people (both men and women), suffer ill effects of one type or another in their attempts to remove all or most of their pubes. I understand that it is leading a growing number of people to go more natural or settle for trimming.

              I second the suggestion to experiment with length and leave it a little longer.

              You’ll probably find that the itching subsides after a few days as the hair grows back. Perhaps try an aftershave balm to soothe the area.
