I am a healthy 26 year old female with white pubic hair. When I first noticed it I freaked out! I am blonde and I have no white or gray hair on my head, only down there. My husband is my high school sweetheart and we have been together since I was 17. I am mortified to tell him about this and have decided to trim and shave my pubic hair as much as I can without looking like a 8 year old girl. Is this normal? What can I do to fix this?
You are not alone. Many women experience graying of their pubic hair during their lives, which can begin anytime from their teenage years to their older years.
There are many factors which can cause this.
Genetics is the main cause among many women. A diet lacking in vitamin B or protein can cause also premature graying on the body, so you could try taking vitamin B supplements and increasing your protein intake. Another possible cause is stress and anxiety, so minimizing your stress level may help to slow down the development of gray / white pubic hair.
Many women who experience graying of their pubic hair are completely healthy, and it is generally not something to be concerned about from a health perspective.
