Actually, everybody loses their pubic hair. Your pubic hair has a certain life-span, after which time, it falls out, and a new hair will grow from that foliacle. Think about it for a second...your pubic hair isn't like the hair on your head, is it? It doesn't keep growing in length until it reaches your knees or ankles or until you cut it, does it?
Unless you're losing in in huge clumps at a time, or losing 70 or 80% at a time, then there's probably nothing to worry about. You should probably bring it up with your doctor the next time you have a check-up, as they would know better than we do about that in relation to your health. Or, if it really worries you, then go ahead and make an appointment to see a doc now.
