Normal women have pubic hair. Some normal women shave or wax their pubic hair, in part or entirely. Some don't.

So, whether or not you want to is up to you, but since hair naturally grows there, any partner finding it there isn't going to be very shocked.

If a male partner is grossed out by pubic hair, then flatly, he's not ready to be having adult female partners sexually.

So, do whatever you want to do with your own pubic hair -- you can leave it, you can shave or wax it, whatever. Just like the hair on your head, it grows back, so it's truly no big what you choose.
