Cancer treatment after effects
When I was 5 I was diagnosed with cancer of the pelvis and received radiotherapy and chemotheropy. The treatment worked but as a result also stunted the growth of organs in that area. I am now 18 and because of the treatment have not grown pubic hair...I know most women would say I should be happy but I would like to know if there is anything you can reccomend to stimulate the hair growth of the vaginal area or is it too late?

I think there is probably nothing that can be done now. It would be important though to know whether you are having periods and ovulating normally. If your ovaries were affected, it may be necessary for hormonal therapy.
