About pubic hair or 8 questions that are not customary to talk about
Male pattern baldness can actively remind yourself of even young guys. The lifestyle of a modern person, his addictions, poor nutrition negatively affect the health of hair. With this, everything is clear, but if the hair begins to fall out not on the head, but in the groin, men can not even imagine what the reason for this phenomenon is.
In fact, there is no standard reason for causing hair loss in this delicate area. There are factors that can provoke this phenomenon, but not all of them affect the same. To understand why men are actively losing hair in the intimate area, it’s worth delving into this issue and sorting it out in more detail.
Why does hair fall out in the groin?
If hair falls out in the groin of men, then it is worth considering the possible presence of health problems. The thicker the hair in this zone, the more male hormone is produced by the body. Such is physiology and he has nowhere to go. If the hair, which serves as a protective mechanism, begins to fall out, then the reasons may be physiological or pathogenic.
Physiological loss occurs due to the fact that over time the hair grows old, but new ones will appear in their place. The pathological factors that trigger the loss can be more serious, which suggests the need to tackle the problem.
Hair in the groin - a sign of brutality?
Exactly. The presence of pubic hair is a key difference between a mature man and a boy. So say anthropologists. Women are also sure that the hair between the legs is a sign of a real male. In the groin are glands that secrete pheromones. Hair increases the spread of individual odors. Women are sensitive to male pheromones. Smells attract them like magnets. Therefore, owners of lush vegetation between the legs can count on the favor of the girls.
Modern women will do their best to look great. But they pay special attention to the armpits and the area under the underwear.
For the sake of beauty, women remove vegetation from the pubis by special means or go to beauty salons. And what to do when they start to fall out on their own? And in general, is this normal or not?
Pubic baldness in women occurs for the same reasons as hair loss in the groin in men:
- Hormonal malfunctions - most of the problems that occur inside the body are associated with an insufficient amount or excess of the norm of specific biologically active substances (hormones). In the male body, the main sex hormone is dihydrotestosterone, and in the female body it is estrogen. When they are not enough, hair growth slows down, after which they fall out. This mainly happens if the menopause has come or after a long reception of contraceptives. Most women experience this problem after childbirth.
- Genetic tendency - if the next of kin has been diagnosed with a disease, then the likelihood of a problem increases significantly.
- Medicines - the use of psychotropic drugs, amphetamines, diuretics, acetylsalicylic acid negatively affects systems and organs plus provokes a violation of functions that are responsible for vegetation in the lower abdomen.
- Diseases (infectious diseases, ischemic heart disease, diseases of the blood-forming organs, gonorrhea, syphilis, genital herpes) - pathological hair loss (alopecia) can be encountered as a result of improper treatment of acute diseases or when the disease is accompanied by fever.
- Diets - regular food restriction and lack of proper nutrition are the cause of vitamin deficiency and alopecia. And even if useful trace elements will not come (especially iron), then the body will fail in the functioning of internal organs and systems. To avoid this, it is recommended to eat at the same time every 3-4 hours.
- Stressful situations, sedentary lifestyle, sleep disorder - excessive emotional and psychological stresses cause an involuntary contraction of a muscle group, accompanied by sharp pain, impedes blood circulation, due to which the hair roots receive nutrition in a minimal amount. In this situation, you need to regularly do physical exercises and observe a sleep pattern.
- Hemodiscirculatory processes - due to good blood circulation, the hair roots receive all the necessary trace elements. In the case of poor blood circulation, they lose energy and the next step for them is loss.
Experts believe that hair loss in the groin in men (or in women on the pubis) occurs due to an autoimmune factor, i.e. the body gives a reaction to the hair roots as a foreign object and tries to get rid of them as quickly as possible.
Alopecia in adolescence
If a boy or girl falls out and does not grow hair in the intimate part of the body, then this, firstly, indicates a hormonal disorder, and secondly, about his unpreparedness for sexual relations.
The reasons why pubic hair falls out in a teenager can be divided into two groups:
In the adolescent “transitional" age during the puberty, the ratio of hormone levels changes stepwise. Such changes entail the reconfiguration of all organs and systems. They are internal causes.
The teenager in this period is worried:
- frequent headaches
- emotional instability
- pubic acne
- increased sweating
- fragility and delamination of the nail plate,
For some, perestroika lasts about 3 years, for others it will take much longer.
Also internal causes include weak immunity due to chronic diseases, which are accompanied by the regular use of drugs, most of which affect not only the condition of the skin, but may well become a cause for alopecia.
External causes include:
- Stress - teenagers are often nervous before exams, although their usual school life is far from calm.
- Hypovitaminosis - most teenagers prefer to buy harmful food instead of home-made food, and in it, as you know, is full of chemistry and a minimum of vitamins.
- Poisoning with a toxic substance - smoking the first cigarette, drinking the first glass of alcohol or using narcotic substances.
- Overwork - this applies to perfectionist children, because they try to be the best in everything, therefore, they are not up to normal rest.
- Fixed lifestyle - instead of going for a walk after school, teens prefer to sit at home in front of a computer or in an armchair with a telephone in front of a TV.
- Adherence to fashion - adolescents like to regularly shave and do haircuts on the intimate part of the body.
In order for the teenager not to have problems in the future, he needs the help of a narrow-profile specialist who will select an individual course of treatment for him.

Pubic hair loss in women
If you notice that the vegetation on your body has thinned for no reason at all, do not rush to rejoice that the problem of unwanted hair has resolved itself. Sudden hair loss on the body can be a sign of serious disorders in the body. Therefore, if you have always been distinguished by increased body hairiness, but at one point you found that the hair on your body began to thin more and more, then this may be a symptom of the following diseases.
Alopecia is the most common cause
When asked why hair falls into the groin, the answer can be just one word - alopecia. This word describes a disease that leads to complete (total alopecia) or partial (nesting, androgenic) hair loss. The tendency to alopecia or alopecia can be both congenital and acquired in nature. A congenital type of this disease is rare, most often it is an acquired problem. The disease is combined with various skin problems or may be noted as an independent disease. The disease is most often caused by hormonal problems, so treatment should be done in this direction.
How to stop hair loss?
Pubic hair loss in men is an uncomfortable phenomenon and it is worth fighting with it. In order to defeat the problem, it is worth acting according to the following scheme:
- consult a trichologist and find out the exact cause of the disease,
- try to completely eliminate the provoking factor that leads to the problem,
- if necessary, use pharmacy medicines and special cosmetics,
- try to normalize your diet and saturate the body with vitamins,
- Avoid all kinds of stress.
If everything is done correctly, then the problem will be defeated.
Hair in men falls into the groin quite often, which could make every girl happy. But do not rejoice that a kind of protective mechanism has ceased to function. To treat hair loss, you need to know the exact cause of this pathology, and for this you will have to consult a doctor.
Often baldness takes even young men by surprise, but this does not mean that the problem should be ignored and just put up. This condition can indicate the presence of a serious pathology, therefore, it is necessary to be examined by a doctor. Only by finding out what health problems actually exist, you can fight them, expecting a positive result. Hair loss in the groin is not uncommon, but it is necessary to deal with this problem.
When hair loss occurs in any part of the body, the first thing to do is to check for a number of skin diseases. A number of skin diseases, the first sign of which is a sharp hair loss on the body, includes.
- Follicular keratosis is an infectious disease characterized by inflammation of the hair follicles.
- Dermatitis - inflammatory processes on the skin.
- Eczema / seborrhea - characterized by the appearance of inflammation, redness and itching.
As a rule, hair begins to fall out at the initial stage of the above diseases. Therefore, as soon as you notice that the hair on your body began to suddenly fall out, immediately, without delaying, consult a dermatologist, because it is much easier to cure all these diseases at the initial stage than if you start treatment in the later stages of the disease. In most cases, after curing these diseases, hair growth is restored. However, there are also cases when the hair no longer grows.
Damage and injury to the skin, thermal and chemical burns can also lead to the fact that hair on the affected area of the skin will stop growing forever.
Body hair growth is regulated by hormones. Therefore, hormonal disruptions can also cause sudden hair loss on the body.
Hypotheriosis is a thyroid disease in which the amount of hormones produced by the thyroid gland is below normal. With this disease, there is a sharp hair loss not only on the body, but also on the head. The same can be observed with hyperteriosis - a disease in which the amount of thyroid hormones is above normal. Diseases of the thyroid gland are also accompanied by symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, sleep disturbances, sudden changes in weight. Examination of the thyroid gland, in principle, must be done at least once a year. With proper timely treatment of hypo- or hyperteriosis, hair loss, as a rule, grow back.
If your thyroid gland is in order, and the hair on the body and on the head continues to fall out rapidly, this may also indicate that an increase in the level of the hormone dihydrotestosterone is observed in your body. In this case, the hair follicle is affected. Over time, the follicles “dry out” and die. In most cases, this phenomenon is irreversible, so if you do not want to lose your hair, you need to regularly check the level of dihydrotestosterone in the body.
Lack of dehydroepiandrosterone (adrenal androgen) - the most important hormone in human blood. This hormone is involved in building muscles, is responsible for their strength and endurance. Its deficiency can also lead to rapid hair loss on the body. It is accompanied by a decrease in libido, muscle weakness. A decrease in the level of this hormone in the blood can be caused by age-related changes, the use of antifungal and birth control drugs, stress, etc. Immediately take tests to check the level of dehydroepiandrosterone and begin treatment.
Upon reaching menopause (most often between the ages of 45-55), a woman’s body undergoes complex changes in the body, and above all, changes in the hormonal background. The level of the aforementioned dehydroepiandrosterone, as well as estrogen and progesterone, is significantly reduced, so the quality and quantity of hair on the head and body in women also changes for the worse. Hormone therapy will help the body maintain hormonal levels within the normal range, so if you get close to the beginning of menopause, make sure you start taking hormone therapy in time.
One often hears the saying that with drugs we “treat one and treat the other.” Taking certain medications can have a negative effect on hair growth throughout the body. Chemotherapy takes first place among the list of treatment methods that cause hair loss on the head and body. However, there are a number of other medications that cause sudden hair loss. For example, some antibiotics, anti-acne drugs, antifungal, anti-inflammatory drugs, drugs for the treatment of arthritis, antidepressants, birth control and hormonal drugs, inhibitors of the immune system, drugs that prevent blood clotting, anticonvulsants for the treatment of epilepsy, drugs that lower blood pressure, drugs to lose blood pressure weight, treatment for Parkinson's disease, gout and indigestion. If you are taking any of the above drugs.Strictly observe the dosage prescribed to you. An overdose can cause severe baldness in large areas of the body and head.
Cirrhosis of the liver
Causes sharp hair loss in the bikini area and armpits. Cirrhosis can be caused not only by excessive alcohol consumption, but can also be inherited, be a consequence of hepatitis B or C, obesity, or even some infectious diseases. If you do not start immediate treatment of this disease, even a fatal outcome is possible.
With this disease, the hair also mainly falls out under the armpits and in the pubic area. There is also a decrease in libido. It arises as a result of a malfunction of the adrenal gland (failure). With the rapid development of the disease, a person feels chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, digestive disorders, lowering blood pressure, changes in skin pigmentation, etc. Long-term treatment is required. Hair, as a rule, grows after a rather long time after treatment.
This form of baldness is characterized by a decrease in the number of active hairs and an increase in the number of “sleeping” bulbs not only on the head, but also on other parts of the body, including the pubic part of women. Therefore, the hair growth zone is noticeably thinning, and the hairs themselves become weak and easily torn out.
Telogen alopecia can occur in two forms.
In the acute form, hair loss in intimate places can last for six months, after which, as a result of therapy, it either goes away by itself, and the density of the hair is restored. If the patient has a chronic form of telogen baldness, then hair can fall out for several years.
With telogen full hair loss does not happen, but the density of the hair noticeably worsens. Affected areas can wherever hair only grows - on the head, on the body and even on the pubic part.
Telogen alopecia can occur due to a number of reasons.
Chronic telogen baldness may occur due to:
- iron and zinc deficiency,
- a lot of stress
- long-term use of drugs harmful to the hair,
- chronic diseases.
To cure thermogenic hair loss, you need to choose the right medicine. For this, a dermatologist may need yours.
- biochemical analysis of blood with a bias on the analysis of the state of metabolism in the body,
- blood test for vitamins and minerals,
- hair analysis.
In women, pubic hair may fall out due to hypopituitarism. At the very beginning of the development of this disease, the fair sex may complain that they are no longer interested in sex, a certain frigidity arises. After some time, their menstrual cycle is disrupted, hairs drop out in the axillary regions and on the pubis.
If a woman is sick with hypopituitarism that has arisen due to a pituitary tumor, then she may also have symptoms such as.
- visual impairment
- bitemporal hemianopsia.
When the patient has a hypothalamus, then symptoms such as are added to pubic hair loss.
- diabetes insipidus
- lack of appetite,
- trouble sleeping
- malfunctions in the regulation of body temperature,
- indifference to life
- periodic psychoses.
Appearance in patients is also specific.
- pale skin,
- liquid hair
- armpits and pubic hair no.
With hypopituitarism in patients, the endocrine system suffers, because of which the adrenal glands work poorly, sexual functions and the thyroid function decrease.
When a woman has a deficiency of gonadotropic hormones, then she has.
- sex drive is reduced,
- disruptions in the regularity of the menstrual cycle,
- thinning hair in the axillary areas, on the pubis,
- mammary glands atrophy
- changes in the external and internal genital organs.
Treatment for severe hair loss in women after 30: the cause matters
Of course, in a perfectly healthy young woman, severe hair loss can begin. Most likely, they do not even fall out, but break off at the roots. This is usually due to improper care. The reasons may also be frequent staining, perm, hair extensions, or specific hairstyles such as afro-braids or dreadlocks. The trichologist will be able to say exactly how and with what your hair is damaged and prescribe medications to care for them. In this situation, it is important not to follow the lead of fashion and not try the advertised miraculous means without appointing your trichologist, otherwise you can only aggravate the situation.

Stress is almost a natural environment for a modern woman. Hard work, family responsibilities, housekeeping, driving a car - all this leads to sleep disturbances, a neurotic state and a deterioration in the quality of hair and skin. The fact is that during stress in the body, B vitamins, so necessary for hair, are consumed at a tremendous speed. Therefore, the latter may fall out, as they say, on a nervous basis.
Alopecia, or hair loss
Androgenic alopecia Is a genetic disease associated with hair loss. This type of baldness can occur in both men and women. Male pattern baldness of this type can begin as early as adolescence. Bald patches appear on the head, hair gradually disappears from the crown and frontal part of the head. Female pattern baldness usually begins after 40 years. At the same time, the hair is thinned all over the head, and most of the hair falls on the top of the head.
Sudden alopecia, as the name implies, appears unexpectedly and causes focal hair loss in children and young people. Such alopecia can lead to complete baldness. But this is rare, and in 90% of people suffering from this disease, hair grows over several years.
- Anagen phase - active hair growth, which lasts from two to six years,
- Catagenic phase - a transition period of two to three weeks,
- Telogenic phase - a phase of rest, the duration of which is two to three months. At the end of the telogen phase, the hair falls out and the growth cycle begins again.
Gray in an intimate place: what to do now
- She is generally obsessed with sex and everything connected with this - therefore, she studied the genital area from her youth with the help of a mirror (this was also a series).
- She has a young lover - and therefore she anxiously controls everything that her true age can betray.
- The young lover also fetishes pubic hair (she began to grow everything there for his sake), that is, he belongs to that (rather rare) type of men who does not examine in detail the whole woman, but only its individual fragments. It is important.
- Since for the sake of her lover she had just begun to grow her “intimate hairstyle”, and she had always done hair removal before, her own attention is concentrated in the zone of changes - so she notices small details.
It is unlikely that someone else will have as many good reasons to study the color of hair in the intimate zone (not to mention the fact that many, following the fashion of "zero", still delete everything there clean). But, let's say, gray hair is no longer alone - and it is impossible not to notice it. There are, for example, three or four of them. What to do?
Actually, gray hair in the bikini zone and gray hair at the temples is caused by exactly the same reasons. The main one, of course, is age. Additional reasons are described in full detail here. But the methods of struggle will have to find others.
Why we shave pubic hair and 20 more interesting facts about it
Nearly 60 percent of women who like to have an intimate haircut in the area cite hygiene as a reason. And about 60 percent of men report the same motivation. But the presence of pubic hair does not interfere with hygiene. Yes, more of your natural odor can cling to your hair, but it’s actually good. Those pheromones that produce our apocrine glands are part of the science of attraction of a partner.
When we shave, we tear out the hair at the base, getting rid of its natural conical soft ends. Some people find that shaving stimulates hair growth. Science says that is not the case. What we really notice is that the razor becomes dull due to frequent shaving.
Keep in mind that pubic hair serves as a small barrier against too many strokes if this is a problem. “During sexual activity, skin-skin contact causes friction,” explains Katy Berris, a dermatologist at ColumbiaDoctors and an assistant professor of dermatology at Columbia University Medical Center. “Without pubic hair, there may be a higher chance of abrasion and injury to the skin.”
Female pattern baldness: 21 reasons why you lose hair
Sometimes birth control pills can provoke hair loss. If someone in your family has suffered from alopecia, be careful with taking these remedies. And generally with hormonal drugs.
What to do: Special medicines restore thyroid function. As soon as the hormones return to normal, the hair will stop falling out.
Two out of three men under the age of 60 suffer from baldness (in some, bald patches on the parietal and frontal areas appear at a fairly young age). This is due to the characteristics of genetics and male sex hormones.
Lice bites cause severe itching of the skin and the appearance of blisters, scratching (mainly in the lumbar region, in the armpits, on the neck).
For the treatment of alopecia are currently successfully used a large number of different methods (drugs, methods of decorative cosmetics, surgery).
If hair loss bothers you, you should consult a dermatologist (cosmetologist) to examine and choose the most suitable treatment method.
Pubic hair curls - why is this happening?
So nature conceived. Pubic hair is thicker and coarser. This is due to the fact that the main purpose of the hairline is to protect sensitive parts of the body from friction. The vegetation between the legs performs other functions. Pubic hair is a natural defense against bacteria. For this reason, many do not shave vegetation in the groin. To follow such a tendency or to shave off hair is everyone's personal business. But do not forget that curly hair keeps the smells produced by the body well. Therefore, men with lush vegetation attract women.
What is pubic hair care?
There is nothing complicated about it. If you want to have a magnificent hair in the groin, smear your hair with balm. This is an effective tool that gives the hair volume and silkiness. Is this relevant for men? How to say…
If an additional volume is not needed, limit yourself to a simple soap. Then the hair will be clean and well-groomed.
How long does pubic hair grow?
Do not worry. Too long hair does not happen, so the hair does not get out of the legs. People who never cut the vegetation in the intimate area do not feel discomfort. On average, the length of the pubic hair is 2-7 cm. This is a limitation laid down by nature. But there are exceptions to the rules. South Africa has a unique record. Pubic hair in a man reached the knees. This is a phenomenal phenomenon. But, was the man happy for him?
- This is a rhetorical question.
Perhaps baldness in the groin?
With age, changes occur in the body. After 50 years, representatives of the stronger sex decrease the amount of testosterone. For this reason, the hair in the groin becomes thinner and falls out. This is an age change that you can’t argue with. Therefore, you need to be prepared for the fact that in old age the vegetation in the intimate zone will disappear.
I want to shave my hair. What will be the consequences?
An interesting study was conducted at the University of California. Its results make you think about whether to shave hair in the groin. It was found that woeful hairdressers are in trouble. Men get to the hospital with wounds that were obtained by shaving the sensitive area. This is due to the fact that many blood vessels are located under the skin.
The statistics are sad: 83% of genital injuries are cuts from a razor, and 22% are punctured with scissors. But that's not all. In many cases, hot wax damage occurs. Does this happen?
- Yes, if you water yourself with candle wax.
Is it possible to guarantee absolute security?
Even with proper handling of the razor, one cannot be completely calm. Your little thing changes in size. In the normal state, the skin on the genitals lies in folds. Many bacteria live there. While harmful microorganisms are on the skin, they are not scary. If the skin is injured by a razor, an abscess and even Fournier gangrene can form. There is a lot of information and pictures about this on the Internet. Check them out if you want to know the truth.
- We warn you right away: the sight is terrifying.
What to do: take an example from the ancestors and not shave off the vegetation in the intimate zone?
“The choice is up to you.”
If you do not like the lush hair between your legs, use advanced techniques. This refers to waxing or sugar. Such procedures cause pain, but for the sake of the result, you can endure everything. Smooth skin lasts for several weeks. This is a great indicator. You can go the other way using an electric shaver. This is a good alternative. If you are sure that the vegetation between the legs gives sexuality and attracts women, just follow daily hygiene.
