Depends on how fast your hair grows! But I’d say you start seeing something after a week. Look out for ingrown hairs, shaving is the worst for them. I’d say get waxed next time you want to have a groom, it’s not painful and the results last weeks and weeks.

You can buy a solution that stops ingrown hairs which is fab!

I wax now as I got sick of the upkeep!

I think a couple days you will feel stubble but maybe a couple weeks to actually grow back. I know lots of people shave but I hate shaving there. I always wax with hot wax, lasts ages, no rash or nasty growing itch.

Poor you, hope it feels better soon!

I fear it's going to be "pan scrub itch" for at least a week. Don't wear nylon pants or the static will be terrible! Smile
