Concerned About Where There Is Pubic Hair

Published: May 14, 2012
Dear Concerned About Where There Is Pubic Hair,

Is pubic hair underneath the flap on your vagina normal? Not only do I have it on the surface of my vagina but, Im also seeing hair begin to develop on the inner part of my vagina.Help!


Dear Concerned About Where There Is Pubic Hair,

One part of puberty for guys and girls is the growth of pubic hair. Girls generally begin to grow hair around the pubic area after the breasts start to develop (although sometimes pubic hair appears first). Generally the first hairs in the pubic area will be sparse and fine. With time the hair will become thicker and curlier. The hair can be present on and around the genitals – so there is absolutely nothing abnormal in having some hair develop on the inner part of your vagina.  

For more information on puberty, go to Planned Parenthood Puberty For Girls.
