I am seven years post menopausal and suddenly in the last year I've lost most of the hair under my arms and the pubic area is following.
I thought this was something which occurred right after you went through menopause. I did lose hair then too. However, this is down to 4 or 5 hairs under each arm and very light in color and fairly fine.
Could this be a sign of some other condition?
Also, I started getting facial hair but that has since decreased considerably as my underarm and pubic hair decreased. Go figure. I wonder if they're related.
I don't know if my situation is the same or will help answer your question, but I had a total hysterectomy 21 years ago. Within 3 years my pubic hair was gone in front and I had almost no hair under my arms.
One of the symptoms of low testosterone is thinning/loss of pubic hair. However, I know there are other causes as well.
