Shaved it all off, and shave it daily, that's how my hubby likes it.

Sometimes I do nothing aka Au Natural

Sometimes I use a battery operated trimmer. I try and refrain from shaving, it really isn't healthy (I'm a midwife...trust me).

Yes! I am 283# and get a brazillian every 5 weeks! My Esthetician is super professional and does an amazing job! So worth it. If you go to a skilled person you won't have any problems, they will show you where to put your hands to "help" and before you know it you are smooth as a baby! Haha ha

I really recommend you give it a try!

I can't even imagine. I am old and I had not even heard of getting rid of hair there until my daughter reached an age where she started shaving there.

I cracked up when my grand daughter said "Grammy you have hair on your Pee Pee" She had never seen that before. My daughter in law shaves every day too.

Since this topic is already going, I have a few questions. I stay pretty close to natural with trimming and a bit of edging work, but that is as far as I go. I am interested in trying other methods of landscaping but I am worried. How bad does waxing hurt, really? I know when my eyebrows are waxed it isn't exactly pleasant and then I am swollen and angry red for about 24 hours. I can only imagine what would happen with a Brazilian. For shaving, doesn't that itch horribly ? I really don't want to have unbearable itching down below caused by something I voluntarily subjected myself to. I truly am interested in trying something new, but I am a little gun shy. Thanks for sharing your experiences and perspectives.

I use my hubby's old beard trimmer. I've shaved and it sucks. Never tried waxing. Go au naturale, but it gets too long. And I don't want to go completely without, because I think it looks prepubescent and a little creepy. But there you have it.

My age group is obsessed with pubic hair removal...its quite disturbing when women come into the clinic for their annual exams and they say things like "Oh, I havent shaved yet"....lol...I am constantly telling ladies that they dont have to...at least not for me.

shave completely. hate the feeling of hair and think it's gross. that's just me though :-) after gaining all of this weight, it's a struggle shaving so sometimes i get a tiny bit lazy with it but i try not to. i feel like i did when i was 9 months pregnant trying to shave

I've done waving. The full Brazilian.

And yes it hurts. Especially the first time, and really a whole lot if you don't trim first. I like to get it evry 4-6 weeks. Summer I stay at 4 weeks.

After a few times the pain tends to get better. And also because tre hair tends to grow in thinner really helps. Go to a place that uses purple wax not the yellow kind that they use on face. You use that and you will really really suffer

I like to keep her bald so I shave twice a week. Have been shaving for the last 15 plus years. Never had any issues but have cut myself a few times from rushing. I wanted to try to Brazilian Wax but they wanted me to let it grow out a couple of inches first then come back. It hurts when I get my eyebrows done so I couldn't even imagine doing that.

I usually shave because I feel the more hair the more likely you are to hold odor. However I've been au natural for about 3 months now because I'm a curly q up and downstairs which means if I don't maintain it gets crazy down there. Once it gets crazy I get lazy about shaving because I know it's going to take forever. I'm due in for an appt with my gyno soon so I guess I'll break down and do it this weekend.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
