Question

I'm sure that when I was younger, personal hygiene wasn't such a big thing, especially shaving body hair.

Answer

One of the functions for the hair under our arms is to act as a wick. They soak up some of the smelly chemicals under our arms. These chemicals have been shown to influence the timing of the female menstrual cycle.
