Scrotum hair


Elle-

Recommended Posts

how do you remove scrotum hair? long before i realized i was MtF i always hated pubic hair, but have always been to scared to try and remove the scrote hair because i feel like it will bleed from pulling, or get cut by razors and clippers. ive also heard that scrotum waxing is one of the most painful beauty,(procedures?), so much so that most dont find that its worth the pain. any tips or links to guides would be appreciated. thanks in advance

I have never tried to remove it permanently, so I have no advice to offer there.  I do know that you can shave it safely if you take your time.  I had to shave mine before surgery.  I freaked out a little bit, but I followed people's advice and took my time, stretching the skin smooth.  I used a regular 3-blade disposable razor.  It was fine.  (The regrowth was most definitely NOT fine!  Ouch, that hurt for two months, but I'm guessing you would not want to let it re-grow.)

i fully believe that lol. i shaved my pubes about 5 years ago because i don't like most of my body hair. I haven,t shaved it since, but the regrowing was so stabby. next time i def won't let it regrow. thanks for the rest of the info as well.

Don't use Nair. I know someone who did that. The results were... unfortunate.

 

If you're serious about it. Go for electrolysis. It's something a lot of GRS surgeons require anyway. It'll probably hurt like the dickens and it'll be more expensive, but you won't have to worry about regrowth. There will probably be swelling though so wear loose clothes.

@Jackie C. i actually went to a beauty store yesterday and asked about Nair depilatory cream. the lady there said that they didn't have Nair cause its not good and showed me the other depilatories they had. also from what i understand, its not safe to use depilatories in the genital area, right?

Depends. How do you feel about chemical burns on your scrotum? That skin is thin and very, very sensitive. Applying harsh chemicals to the area is a bad plan. Admittedly, I didn't see the burns first hand but a dear friend of mine did and they were both tragic and hilarious. Don't judge her harshly on that, the guy (who was her nanny/boyfriend at the time) turned out to be a pedophile. He deserved the agony. You don't.

@Jackie C. oOo damn that sounds painful. just to clarify though i was looking for it for my legs and arms, i kind of expect most things to not be safe for genitals

Just make sure that what you buy is high quality and meant for the area you plan to use it on. I don't have a ton of experience with hair removal thanks to an auto-immune disease that attacks healthy hair follicles. On the plus side, I didn't need any electrolysis. ?

 

Lots of the girls here are or were more hirsute though. I'm sure there's plenty of good advice.

i went with a popular & heavily advertised mens genital electric razor - i don't want to name it & get anyone in trouble, but its main selling feature is a ceramic blade that they claim prevents nicks, cuts & irritation.   It left my undercarriage looking like the cat had attacked it, and the automatic spraying of deodorant after i towelled off only added insult to injury.

I should have taken pix - it would have given everyone a laugh at least...

There are only two reliable and safe ways that scrotal hair can be removed.  The most common way is by electrolysis and it does work.  As said some surgeons require it before GCS.  The second way comes during GCS by a good number of the surgeons where the scrotal tissue is opened up and the hair follicles are scraped off the inside before the scrotal tissue becomes part of your Neo-vagina.  I went to a surgeon who did it way #2 and it is fine.  Razors and epilators and depilatory chemicals in that area would get you a 72 hour mental safety hold if it were my say so.  I am glad I do not know anyone who suffered more than discomfort from using them, but I have been waiting on making this post to see if some safe and sane folks were answering it.  If it is over-the-counter stuff you don't want to do it.

Um...perhaps I'm an outlier in this regard, but I've shaved my scrotum and surrounding area an average of 3 times per week with a 3-blade razor since 2014.  I simply take my time and am careful. Maybe a small nick every 3 or 4 months... no more than that.  But I am adamant about being smooth down there, so it's been worth it.

 

I do plan on electrolysis, eventually.

 

We're all different, aren't  we ?.  A good thing!

I know someone who did that with Nair. He couldn't wear pants for 72 hours afterwards because of the chemical burns. I think the... rest of his life probably... of people who know about it laughing at him was punishment enough. Well, that and the chemical burns.

 

I had the scrotal scrape as part of my GCS too. Everything is smooth down there. That said, I ran into a lot of surgeons who required electrolysis to the area for at least a year before they'd take you too.

Dr. Brassard does the follicle scrape as part of the surgery, so he does not require hair removal first.  However, I have talked to a few of his patients who have had one or two follicles missed by the scrape.  They had to go back to a gyno afterwards to have the resulting internal hairs removed with silver nitrate.  To avoid that, a lot of ladies have elecrolysis on the area even though the surgeon doesn't require it.  If you are going to have it done, though, he requires that it be completed a year before surgery, so he can identify any remaining follicles that need to be scraped.

I've shaved it in the past. I did not take extra caution but I only only got a small nick from shaving.

Oh dear.

I feel slightly silly. I've tried several different creams and the sensitive one was okay.

Shaving takes a lot of time and patience ... oh the regrowth ?

 

Now for the funny and painful story.

Sensitive hair removal cream worked okay. But ..

for some reason they put it in the same coloured plastic bottle as the normal cream which I use on my legs.

 

Well you can guess what happened.

I only twigged when things started to get really hot down there !!!! ?

After rinsing with cold water which is not fun either, I couldn't bare anything next to my skin for 24hrs.

 

Ouch ouch ouch ...

I check the bottles very closely now !!!

      nice tune -

      They don't believe trans really exists (just like they believe being gay is a choice), and therefore, in their warped minds, all trans kids must be a matter of the parent forcing them to transition.   With that crowd, it's all about deciding what you want to believe first (ie "trans isn't real"), and then inventing whatever story it takes to explain what they've already decided to believe.
    • KathyLauren
      I am no expert.  But my understanding is that it is certainly not a law, and I don't believe it is an official executive order.  It is just an opinion of the governor about how existing law should be interpreted.  There may be a fine line between an opinion and an order, but I haven't heard anyone use the term "executive order".

      Has anyone else been, asked to participate in the survey on transition that the VA sent out last week?   I completed the survey and was overly excited about the questions asked and the information that they are seeking from transitioning Vets. There were questions about the types of surgeries and treatments that we would like to have done as well as if the VA should pay the full expense or if we would accept out-of-pocket expenses on our own. If you happen to get the survey in the mail or e-mail, please take the time to fill it out. I believe that this information will help all of us in the future. It only took about 15 min, and they offer a $15 gift card for your time, or you can have the money donated to a VA trans support organization.

      @awkward-yet-sweetYou make an excellent point, and one I'm sure applies in all states.    I'm confused about something in the article, though and would appreciate some answers if anyone knows. THe article refers to governor Abbot's "order" as opposed to Texas law. My question is thus: is this actual TX law, or is it an executive order by the governor? Make no mistake, it's wrong either way; I mean who in their right mind would assume that trans children all live in abusive homes that require investigation? The question of law v. executive order raises raises more issues, though. Such as if it's state law, it can be challenged as unconstitutional federally. If it's an executive order, it can be challenged at both state and federal level as the executive branch cannot make laws, merely enforce them.    IMHO, this whole thing stinks to high heaven and the only hero in it is the worker who resigned in protest. What a mess.

      People need to know an essential truth:. You don't have to open the door and talk to CPS/DFS or any other flavor if "child police.". I don't believe all people who work for those departments are bad...some do it for the right reasons like the man in this article.  But if in doubt, tell them to get off your property.  In the USA, the 4th Amendment protects against warrantless searches, and the 5th Amendment protects against self-incrimination.     FWIW - in my county, if a state employee shows up to bother, we can call the sheriff for help.  The sheriff is quite proactive about dealing with that sort of stuff.  Hopefully other sheriffs around the nation will do likewise.

      I read that story elsewhere.  He was brave for trying to work within the system but in the end it failed him and all the parents being investigated.

      That's great Hannah, I hope you find that most of your longtime friends are accepting you for who you truly are.    That's right Lizzy, his loss and our gain.   Good morning everyone,   I've been away on vacation at a Bluegrass Festival, camping with friends and family. It went well and no one questioned my more androgynous presentation. I also played the upright bass, in a jam session at a campsite down the hill from us. I may have found another focus for may ADHD list of hobbies. Oh look! A fire truck!   Hugs for everyone, Coffee or Not.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      I think I understand, thanks!   Yes, I already have short hair which can really come across as feminine, masculine and androgynous depending on my outfit.   Yeah, I guess you're right... Thanks!   I got it, thank you!   I understood the main ideas of what should I do next, just be natural and do what I feel like doing at the moment and sometimes try to observe it (but without ruining the moment). I won't try and hurry it, because even other parts of myself that I figured out took me some time. Thank you all for answering!
