Is Pubic Hair Important for Health?
Saba® makes you feel #CómodaContigo.
Surely you’ve noticed that darker and thicker “hairs” have begun to appear on your genitals compared to the rest of your body. Don’t worry! This is completely normal.
The appearance of hair on the armpits, legs, upper lip, genitals, and arms is a sign that you are developing and entering puberty. You may feel uncomfortable, but our various kinds of hairs have many useful functions, plus they can say a lot about our health. Keep reading to find out more!
One of the functions of pubic hair is to protect against the entry of bacteria and viruses into the human body, forming a kind of barrier. It also regulates temperature and reduces irritation.
Also, pubic hair can be an indicator of the presence of various diseases or disorders:
If your pubic hair grows quickly and suddenly, it could be a hormonal imbalance.
Hormonal imbalances are dangerous. Since hormones actively participate in many processes in the body, an imbalance can affect our body in various ways. An imbalance in these can be the cause of increased fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, or excessive hair growth. Polycystic ovary syndrome, for example, causes an increase in testosterone in women, which may cause hair to grow in areas such as the face, arms, areolas, and pubic area. Also, some medications or diseases can cause massive hair growth in the pubic area. If this happens, go to a specialist for diagnosis and treatment.
Waxing increases the risk of infections and inflammation.
As already mentioned, our pubic hair works as a barrier against diseases. Shaving or trimming your pubic hair increases the chances of developing or getting an infection. So, remove your hair with caution. Avoid small cuts and pay attention to ingrown hairs to avoid irritation.
