I’m actually fascinated to see how people respond to this.  I can’t help you myself as I’ve waxed for as long as I can remember, and it has never occurred to me that such a thing might be an issue for people who don’t.  I’m curiously awaiting some more responses.

ETA: And it sounds like your body liked depo about as much as mine did!

Every woman is different in many ways. And im sure there are women out there who have the same experience as you.

I honestly have never had a problem with getting wee ‘everywhere’. I do wax, so it lasts a lot longer than shaving. I do get lazy over winter, (not going the beach so don’t need as much maintenance.) Even in my lazy months I don’t seem to have a problem.

I have seen in the supermarkets Kleenex have bought out flushable wet ones. Maybe give them ago, it may make you feel cleaner and fresher after using the bathroom. Maybe contact Kleenex and see if they’ll send you a free sample?
I would also suggest waxing, you will find you get alot less irritation. I used to shave when i was younger, i have now been waxing for 7 years and it is so much better. The hair thins out, it doesn’t get itchy when growing back, providing you exfoliate regularly. Or if you really want to get reduce the hair try laser or IPL.

Good luck

@MrsTangerine:  I hate pubic hair for the same reasons as you!! It’s so gross and you always smell more strongly and it holds urine and urine odor. ICK ICK ICK.

That being said, when you are an overweight gal to begin with and you are 7 1/2 months pregnant.. there ain’t a lot you can do about shaving your nether regions, so needless to say sasquatch has entered the building and I always feel dirty and gross, but what’s a gal to do? I tried convincing my FH to shave it for me but he is scared he’ll chop something off on accident, so I’m stuck with it until I have the baby or until I get desperate enough to pay someone to rip it out O.o

I never noticed a problem with pee but I keep mine groomed. I started shaving though because when I was at that age of puberty I hated having my period with the public hair. My mother would NEVER allow me to shave down there. I just figured it out on my own. Never looked back since lol

but really I don’t see how it gets that wet, just trim it if it’s getting longer. Also that hair down there is waterproof, water rolls off it like off a duck’s back so I dunno if it’s relaly as wet as you thnk or whether you have gotten a bit paranoid about it. 
Anyway yeh, just trim it. Buy a pair of sharp small scissors and lop off those extra long bits. That’s what I do now as I can’t see mine anymore to shave due to this giant baby in my belly.

I like the story about your dad!

Just use the lowest guard on the electric shaver- if you are doing that there should be hardly anything left to get “wet”.

lol, that story with your dad is great.  that’s amazing what a open relationship you have with him.  i actually never did anything about the hair down there until within the last year or 2, but i just way the front portion and trim the rest.  I guess I’m pretty lucky that there isn’t that much growth there.  I mean, I can count and easily get the few strands that managed to grow.

I find that when I DO shave/wax it all off the pee goes EVERYWHERE!!!  It’s like there’s no hair to guide it where it needs to go or something.  I seriously end up spraying pee all over the place – it’s so weird.  When I have some hair down there the pee seems to go right in the direction it’s supposed to.

I usually shave on a pretty regular basis, but there has been several times I let the hair grow out to it’s full length. I have never had an issue with the hair getting soaked in urine. The hair grows on either side and when I pee it just flows straight down through the middle hairless part and avoids the hair.

Honestly, I rarely shave. Like, I’ll trim every now and then when I think it’s getting out of hand, but for the most part I leave it alone. I have never had a problem with what you’re talking about. I’m assuming the droplets you’re talking about got there before you wiped, not after.

I don’t shave down there at all, just my bikini lines during the summer. I might trim now and then and that is all. I find the younger generations dislike of pubic hair to rather disturbing – I grew up during a time when liberated women were encouraged to embrace their bodies. The few times I tried shaving, the stubble was extremely uncomfortable and I said never again. And waxing? No freaking way.

That being said, I never had an issue with peeing. I simply wipe and use baby wipes afterwards and feel fresh. FH has never complained!

I don’t think I can help you, I trim but even when I don’t trim, I don’t have this problem. It maybe an odd suggestion, but maybe its the way you’re sitting on the toilet?
