Wow!! Before today, I had never heard or thought about pubic hair loss. Never heard of Merkin, but familiar with pubic wigs. Personally, I would much rather do without the pubic hairs..especially during the summer months as sweating becomes a problem. On the other hand, if I were to suddenly experience a tremendous loss of hair, I too would be concerned as to the reason; especially after reading the info on your site. Thank you for bringing this issue to light. It is certainly informal and brought about awareness of this condition.
