    I shave my private area and it’s so itchy and uncomfortable. I don’t want to wax because of the pain and I’m a bit embarrassed to get it done. I used hair removal cream but it doesn’t really work well.
    It’s itchy, red little spots and it’s very uncomfortable

    If it causes you THAT much pain, why bother?

    I currently wax, but i'm thinking about starting laser (everywhere i.e. legs, armpits etc.), how long roughly does it last?

    i haven't had it done (being a guy hair really isn't a problem!). my ex however did go through with it and from what she said it's permanent (but really expensive)

    Just a word of warning on laser. Medical bodies do not allow the word 'permanent' to be used in relation to laser hair removal because eventual regrowth is actually a possibility and the efficacy of the treatment is largely dependent on the shade of skin tone and hair properties (thick black hair on fair skin being the optimal scenario). You will need multiple sessions usually, but they aren't long and it's not that painful.

    The only truly permanent hair removal method is electrolysis but that hurts like a ***** and is very time-consuming as each hair follicle needs to be targeted individually.

    If maintenance is bothering you that much, then go for laser. Otherwise getting a routine professional wax is probably your best option. Seek advice on how to best avoid irritation next time you go.

    Waxing is infinitely better than shaving.

    It doesn't hurt nearly as bad as you think it does. I was expecting excrutiating pain but really it was more of a sting, and I am a complete wimp who's very intolerant to pain so if I can withstand it I'm sure you can.

    It's not awkward, either; these people do this for a living and won't be at all fazed by your lady parts.

    I cannot reccommend it enough; it grows back so much thinner and more slowly. Once you start you won't regret it.

    I'm 19 and I've only ever shaved my downstairs pubes about twice in my life, years ago now. And each time it was all itchy and uncomfortable, just like what you're experienced. So after that I didn't bother anymore as it's not really worth it. If it gets too bushy, especially when I want to wear a bikini then I just trim it and it's fine. I've never been sexually active though so I've never had to worry about anything on the boy front. Can't really say either what I'd do till I cross that bridge :/

    I find it very sad that a girl would feel the need to post anonymously just because she has pulic hair.
