Found out something new today...

I get really bad hair bumps and I told my doctor about them today. Although I have stopped shaving down there for a while I still get them because my hair follices are irritated and some have even got infected before . She told me to stop shaving completely and said that most doctors are against shaving anyway because it is a big social normality. I was always weird about going to the doctor unshaved because I thought it was "gross" but she assured me tyey've seen much worse and not shaving is not gross at all.

Well I am the same as well but if ur hair gets long u can always get some really really good scissors and just cut ur hair low that way it can look trimmed.

Have you tried bikini waxing? I was thinking of trying that as an alternative

Waxing is way better than shaving,it lasts longer and you feel great,of course its a bit painful,like waxing anywhere is but its totally worth it.

Since I have sensitive will it affect me like shaving?
