More private parts hair is not necessarily a good thing

  Regarding gender knowledge, there is a popular saying on the Internet: the thicker the hair on a woman’s private parts, the more she desires for sex. This statement is not scientific, more pubic hair may be caused by some kind of disease.
  During puberty, the skin on the mons pubis begins to grow pubic hair in an inverted triangle distribution. The presence or absence of pubic hair is mainly determined by two factors: one is the level of androgen produced by the adrenal cortex in the body, and the other is the sensitivity of pubic hair follicles to androgen. Pubic hair can block the invasion and pollution of reproductive organs by harmful organisms and some dirt or harmful organisms, and play a certain protective role. In the process of sex, pubic hair can bring gentle stimulation to the sensitive area of ​​the external genitalia, which is helpful for the sexual arousal of both parties.
  Some women who have little or no pubic hair may have Turtner’s syndrome. Turtner’s syndrome is a genetic disease caused by sex chromosome abnormalities, often accompanied by gonadal insufficiency, immature development of genitalia, sparse or hairless pubic hair, and decreased libido. In addition, women with hypothyroidism often have thin pubic hair and decreased libido. Sheehan’s syndrome is more common in women with postpartum hemorrhage who have not been treated in time. Due to pituitary ischemia and pituitary insufficiency, uterine atrophy and ovarian function decline may occur. become less hairy.
  Women with vulva hairiness also need to be alert to the excessive secretion of androgen caused by various reasons, such as pituitary, adrenal, ovarian, genetic and drug-induced factors can all lead to increased androgen secretion. Among the most common diseases are pituitary tumors such as eosinophilic pituitary tumor (also known as acromegaly) and basophilic pituitary adenoma (Cushing’s disease). Women suffer from hyperplasia of the adrenal cortex and tumors of the adrenal cortex, as well as hypertrophy of the vulva and hypertrophy of the clitoris, and some patients suffer from amenorrhea. When the ovary develops lesions that lead to androgen increase (common in polycystic ovary syndrome and functional ovarian tumors), in addition to the problem of vulvar hair, it is often accompanied by problems such as obesity, amenorrhea, infertility, or ovarian masses. It can be identified by color Doppler ultrasound and related serological tests.
  It can be seen that the density of female private parts hair is related to the level of androgen, and too much or too little hair may be caused by some kind of disease.
  If a woman finds that she has too much or too little pubic hair, she should see if she has other symptoms and signs, and go to the hospital if necessary.
