Pubic hair Anonymous 3508[Reply]

Do you shave everything, trim it? Have you gotten laser?

I want to keep my vagina as smooth as possible but that's not easy with a razor

can we talk about all body hair in this thread,or just specifically pubic hair?

Has anyone used one of those home laser hair removal things? Actually pulsed light. Curious if they actually work. I have super hairy inner thighs, my bush just keeps going down essentially, and if I shave or wax I get horrible ingrown hairs. Like the next day for shaving.

hard mode is to use one of these. no pain, no gain

i got the tria, it works for your pubes and thigh hairs for sure as long as it's dark


Breast Implants/General Plastic Surgery Anonymous 3999[Reply]

Does anyone here have breast implants? How did they affect your life? Do they hurt? Do they even feel like your own body? Has anyone here ever considered a boobjob?

Do most men consider fake breasts normal now? More and more young girls are getting them and male oriented media is dominated by women with implants. I’m pretty sure most men can’t tell the difference.

All plastic surgery discussion is welcome. Please stay reasonable and open minded, and don’t try to talk others into stuff they don’t want.

>What does it feel like to have implants? How does it feel to have them inside your body?
I guess you could compare it to contact lenses. You don't feel the implant inside you, you can only feel it with your hand, but sometimes when you press your chest against something or do certain movements you can feel some pressure or discomfort.
>What’s the recovery like?
For me it was terrible, for other people that I know it wasn't so bad. Mine was worse because I got horrible hipbone and leg pain due to having to lie on my back all day. That was the worse part.
>How big were you naturally and how big are you now?
Honestly idk, I never really bought bras before and mine didn't have a normal boob shape so all sorts of things fitted. Right now I have one that says 34B but it's a bit small, I think I'm between that and 36B now.
>Are you happy with them?
Yes, so happy.
>How much did you pay?
$3000. That's considered expensive in my country and it's what the best doctors charge.
>Would you recommend getting them?
Only if you REALLY want them. Not something you do on a whim, and it does give your body some limitations so you have to be willing to live with that.
>Why did you get them
I had tuberous breasts.

How do boys react to them? Are you too autistic to get a bf?

Anonymous 8283

Do they hurt when boys squeeze them? How hard/soft are they?

Anonymous 8289

Doesn't hurt. They are less soft than normal breasts, but I wouldn't say they are hard. Maybe more firm? My bf says they're soft.
I think softness also depends on where they place the implant (under skin only or under muscle).

I got my first bf ever before getting the surgery. He was excited and now likes them a lot.

most guys just say what they think society wants them to say. media and pop culture glamorize huge tits, so guys start saying that they want girls with huge tits. media and pop culture start to glamorize gigantic flabby butts, and guys start saying that they like huge asses.

take porn for example, who do you think of when you think of a porn star? pamela anderson, or some other fake titted blond bimbo. but who are the actual porn stars that are popular? brunettes with relatively small boobs like sasha grey or stoya.

huge boobs can look decent when you're wearing clothing because the layers of cloth tend to flatten out the body's curves. however, when the clothes come off, you see the big fake bolt-ons that look like some kind of alien parasite that's attached themselves to the woman's chest.


Ideal Body Type thread? Anonymous 1672[Reply]

What's your ideal body type, anons?

Are you into being thin, or curvy, or maybe fit? Were you born a cone shape but long to be a pear? Or maybe you're a banana but would rather be an hourglass?

I'd like to hear your opinions and what you're doing to get there!

/thyroid/ Anonymous 9961[Reply]

Straight from the doc, just found out I have serious hypothyroidism.
Kinda explains why losing weight was so hard for me, and not because I'm a huge slob (I've lost about 12 kg on myself this year but then I hit a plateau and gained 2 of them back). I'll have to take iodine supplements for the next 12 months and a hormonal one for the next 3 before the next hormone check.
Anyone else that had/has thyroid problems here? How did you deal with them? How did they affect your body image and weight?

Anonymous 9963

Note: I'm not a doctor and not giving medical advice or anything, just talking about my understanding.
The treatment seems to be worth it, apparently the effects of treatment -can- be life changing but results vary and don't seem significant all the time.
I know people that have had this issue. I believe the regular treatment is synthroid which completely shuts down all natural thyroid hormone production and makes you dependent on the replacement hormone, which is kind of a good thing, you need to take a pill every day and get tested a few times a year to make sure your hormone levels are good.
You should really talk with your doctors about this though. I think it depends on how severe the issue is. Good luck!

Anonymous 9971

Thanks anon, yes I was prescribed a small dosage of synthroid every day in the morning (the bloodwork was horrible so we'd have to start small).

>makes you dependent on the replacement hormone

This is what kinda scares me, I know that it's often a lifelong issue for most and it kinda sucks but expected. My mother had a hormonal issue too, so my genetics are shit.

Anonymous 9972

I just got blood taken to test for thyroid problems and some other deficiencies. I have some symptoms of thyroid/hormone problems that I’ve always “meant” to have checked out, but always half-thought it was just me being overly anxious. I’ll find out the results next week.


eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

Does anyone has experience with metformine? how did it go?

Anonymous 9947

i took it as an alternative treatment for hormonal acne to see if that would work. i was on the thinner side though and didn't lose any extra weight but regular metformin fuuucked my stomach up, so if you can get it, i'd recommend extended release met. regular metformin made me almost pass out multiple times and completely destroyed my stomach. a lot of people have awful gastro issues with regular met. other than that it is well tolerated and people say it works well for weight loss if you're overweight.

Anonymous 9964

>do you have an eating disorder? which one?
i haven't been in treatment/diagnosed, i cycle between b/p and restricting a lot
>are you attempting recovery?
yes, but to be completely honest it feels more like an excuse to binge. then again at this point i don't even know what binge means anymore, it feels like any time i eat anything i'm binging.
>how long have you had it?
probably longer than i realize (i found a 500cal food diary from when i was 15) but the ana REALLY kicked in early last year (was 18)
>what caused it?
swelling like a balloon thru my teenage years because of antipsychotics, then basically eating nothing for 6 months during a drug bender. being both tall and fat for most of my life really fucked with my psyche in ways i didn't realize until way too late
>how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?
unless i'm in a purging phase there's not much of a difference other than the general constant thinking about food and how to stretch my calorie limit. i also have a lot of restaurant apps just so i can pretend to order something and measure the calories/price it would cost, i spend an absurd amount of time doing this. i'm better at math now at least

Anonymous 9970

I might've hit a new low with lax abuse. There's chewed undigested food and some slightly dirty water coming out of my butthole every hour or two. And it hurts.
at least i don't absorb as many calories now i guess? wouldn't recommend doing that to your body though, it's terrible


Period Discussion General Anonymous 9864[Reply]

Discuss any findings from the period survey >>9534 or any other period related things here.

One thing that surprised me from the survey was how many women have at least one extremely painful day every month, yet this is barely spoken about and all women are just expected to get on with things.

Did anyone notice anything else?

soft feet Anonymous 9881[Reply]

How do I get nice soft feet? I have dermatillomania (skin picking disorder) focused on my soles and toenails and the bottom of my feet are rough. I've gotten it largely under control but I'm still insecure about how they look. I've tried babyfoot but the parts with thick skin stayed the same, it only affected the already soft-ish skin around them.

Here's a babby picture bc I'm not about to go looking up womens' feet on the internet.

Anonymous 9910

I forgot to add, also thinking about how much I didn't want other people to see it, or worse, comment on it. Feet picking is probably easier to hide, but there are still times when your feet will be visible, even if it is only to your family or partner.

Essentially, all these things took the enjoyment out of picking and emphasized the negatives, making picking a less enjoyable thing to do.

Anonymous 9913

These really do work, but they take a few days.

Also, moisturize your feet a lot.

Anonymous 9914

>I have dermatillomania (skin picking disorder) focused on my soles

my sister…… I do this so much and I have terrifying zombie feet now. Sometimes I have deep cuts in my soles because I start taking off the hard skin with a nail clipper and tear it off too hard. You already mentioned babyfoot, for me it doesn't do anything for the really hard parts either but I still love using it because it satisfies my skin picking thing sooo much. I always have 2 packs in my nightstand (I use a cheapo version for 5 dollars per 2 socks and only do 1 foot at a time)

sorry for no contribution but yeah.

Anonymous 9925


Counterpoint: wearing socks all the time encourages fungal growth. My toenails have been gross for years now because I used to do this.

Anonymous 9967

I used to have great feet when I didn't walk barefoot. I mostly used crocs. But I had to stop because they gave me knee pain.

Who here is on a /diet/?

I'm 5'4 and 165lb and trying to lose some weight. I started a diet yesterday. Trying to eat lots of veg and lean proteins and keeping my total calorie intake below 800.I'm so hungry tho
How's your diet going?

It is.



I want to lose 20 lbs so I go from a BMI of 23.9 to 20.4. Is this a reasonable goal? I was once my goal weight, but I was in high school. Back then my body wasn't done growing, so I'm not sure if that's a bad goal. I don't want unrealistic goals or to focus on anything particularly unhealthy. Does it sound reasonable? I'm trying to get there through diet and exercise. Like, getting under 1200 calories a day and exercising daily

Anonymous 9957

I get where you're coming from anon, and also think that girls should focus on losing weight healthily instead of becoming ana-chans but you make it sound a lot rarer to have a low TDEE than it is. I'm less than an inch shorter than the average height where I'm from and according to the calculator you linked if I want to lose 2 lbs a month I have to eat under 1200 cals a day.

Over what time frame? It can be hard to get adequate nutrition in terms of vitamins and shit below 1200 calories. I suggest starting at a more moderate goal and if you feel like you have plenty of energy and don't have to obsess over what you eat to get under your goal, you can lower it.

Anonymous 9958

I hope you like white fish because you're going to need to eat a lot of it to get adequate protein on 1200 calories a day. And lots of veggies. I don't suggest doing 1200 kcal for long periods of time unless you're very small. Be kind to yourself.

Anonymous 9962

>i know so many people have heard this, but 1200 calories is what a toddler needs to eat to stay alive.
Christ, I wish people would stop bringing this up as if it's a convincing reason not to starve yourself. A toddler is tiny but they are growing a whole ass body, their caloric needs are completely irrelevant to an adult's and the comparison is pointless. 1200 is an arbitrary number and whether or not it works depends on the individual.
