Re: goodbye pubic hair

Hi all
Mine disappeared, never to really return! I have a very sparse covering in the lady garden area, but a very thick head of hair, which was really curly but is gradually straightening. Have eyelashes but intermittent eyebrows, so wear a fringe to cover them up. Am 18mths post chemo. Am not too bothered about it, but lady garden does look weird.

Re: goodbye pubic hair

ps. apparently Kate Winslet wore a pubic hair wig for Revolutionary Road as her brazilian wasn't realistic for 1950s america. Whats good for Kate.....

Re: goodbye pubic hair

Binki, i love that post!Thanks.

I still have a sprinkling of pubic hair but thanks for the wee advice, i will wee more carefully in future... surely i m not going to spray more than my two sons and husband who i am always complaining to as they can't seem to direct well!

My friend shaved my ( head) hair off today for me ( after your post Hayz, i guess i need to specific , and don't want anyone thinking i had my friend round to give my nether regions a number 3!). I was so sick of it being sore, looking greasy and coming out whenever i ran my fingers through it, and worrying it would all blow off in the school playground and scare the children! The annoying thing is that i had to shave my legs cos they were so black hairy and awful and didn't look in imminent danger of going anywhere quickly, but i could pull out the rest of my hair with no force!

Hayz, I had the best laugh!!!! My house is full of builders, they must think the bald woman has lost the plot!! Going from having long hair below the shoulder to patchy no3 crew cut takes some getting used to, did use the cc but not entirely successful!

LOL Tina45

I looked at the thread title & then read your post!

I'm assuming that you're talking about the hair on your head??!

Re: goodbye pubic hair

If you are near day 20/21 first cycle it will probably go soon! Depends whether you want to have control when and how the hair comes off. In hindsight I wish I had taken mine off before it fell off in one go, it was so long when it came off it tangled and it took an hour to unpick, possibly my worst bc day so far, my friend then did a no. 3 crew cut. I can't explain why that was worse than the mx?

Re: goodbye pubic hair

Only people who have hair can make that comment. I am having a bad day with hair and think maybe time to shave??? At least our lady hair is something we dont have to show the public!!

Re: goodbye pubic hair

Will keep the post in mind with my hair doing the disappearing act and no more bikini wax this summer needed, that was the first bit to go! Knowing I am not alone in this is great! Not sure how to take comments from people like at school today when one mum told me "don't worry it'll grow back and hair is so overrated anyway!!" whilst she was tossing her blond locks....... What can you say to that??

Re: goodbye pubic hair

After Reading you Post it made me smile. so i thought i would share this i came across Re a lady with Breast Cancer i thought it was wonderful (smiling)

A T T I T U D E

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror,
And noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'

So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror
And saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
'H-M-M,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'

So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror
And noticed that she had only one hair on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail.'

So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror
And noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.
'YAY!' she exclaimed.

'I don't have to fix my hair today!'

Attitude is everything!

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain.
I read this and it made me smile !

Re: goodbye pubic hair

i lost my downstairs hair first... and unlike divvy my OH didnt like me with none and after it fell out was the end of our sex life until it grew back.... in some ways it was quite reassuring LOL.

when it grew back in it grew back totally straight, fine and wispy and looked a bit like old lady foofs (im a nurse so iv seen a fair few... just incase you thought i was a bit of a freak), but it did turn back into a normal lady garden after a few months.... and now 6 months post chemo its as wild and wavy as it was before.

Re: goodbye pubic hair

This thread has made me chuckle! I'm due for my first chemo on 21st May, and both me and boyfriend are wondering if that will disappear!

Re: goodbye pubic hair

I think I must be strange in this but I lost all my hair, eyelashes, eyebrows and all other body (and facial I must admit!) on Taxol but my pubic hair just disppeared in certain areas leaving a very tidy arrangement, almost Brazilian!!

I'm guessing this was due to having weakened the other growth by waxing over the years but can't quite understand why it didn't all go.

Silver linings!

Re: goodbye pubic hair

Goodness mine's coming back in full force, however husband thinks I should start waxing it immediately. I told him to sod off. Just wish the hair on my head would return as quick.

Re: goodbye pubic hair

It was the first hair I lost! Came away in my hand in the shower! I wonder if it'll be the last to grow back, as I already have 0.5mm length eyelashes! Yay!

Whilst the hair on my head disappeared at an alarming rate, all other hair is still there thick and fast... I think I am missing out.... x

Re: goodbye pubic hair

I remember back on the old forums posting about this and the thread was so funny - pity we cant access it still. Basically it's a warning to be careful when you pee!! Hair seems to serve a purpose in that area, of directing the stream if you get my meaning. It took me quite some time to work out why I kept wetting the back of my trousers .... and yes I had remembered to pull them down first.
