What is pubic hair
Hello, and welcome to Ask Alex.
We understand that adolescence can be a time of many questions and changes, and we’re here to provide you with a safe space to ask questions especially when it comes to topics that might feel a little uncomfortable or confusing.
Pubic hair is a natural part of growing up, and it’s completely okay to have questions about it. Your body is undergoing various transformations, and the growth of pubic hair is one of these changes. It’s important to remember that everyone goes through this phase, and there’s no one-size-fits-all answer for what’s “normal.” Your body is unique, and the pace at which your pubic hair grows is part of that uniqueness.
It’s perfectly normal to feel self-conscious about these changes, but always remember that you are never alone in this journey. Don’t hesitate to reach out to a trusted adult, healthcare professional, or a supportive friend if you have questions or concerns. Here is an article from the Childline website which you may find helpful https://www.childline.ie/what-exactly-happens-to-your-body-and-mind-during-puberty/.
We understand that not everyone feels able to talk to someone they know about their body’s changes during puberty, so whether you have questions about puberty, hygiene, or just want to talk about the emotional aspects of these changes, we are here for you. You can phone the Childline Team for free on 1800 66 66 66 or you may prefer to have a webchat with us at childline.ie, you can start a chat by clicking on the Live Chat icon.
So, embrace this journey, and know that you have lots of support to help you with the changes and challenges of growing up. You’re not alone, and we’re here to empower you to make informed decisions about your body.
Take care of yourself,
