    Default Waxing

    I'm looking at getting a Brazilian done closer to my due date as its getting harder and harder to shave
    But I'm scared ....
    How bad does it hurt ?
    Is it bearable ?
    I've also heard it hurts more while preg is this true ?
    Thanks in advance

    If you havent had it done before I don't recommend it, the first time you have it done kills. You also can have reactions. How long until your due? Do you have a few months to get it done a couple of times?


    Waiting on the arrival of William

    Ditto what Pammyla said, the first time absolutely kills, & it takes a while. Not sure if it hurts more during pregnancy, it probably does!

    I'm a regular waxer and my skin went red and bleed in a few small spots since being PG. I'd opt for the g-string bikini wa instead.

    Good luck.

    Yup it hurts! A pregnant friend also said it gets her more now too.

    Having said that- it is soooo worth it IMO! If I go every four weeks it isn't nearly as painful (but the first time always will be) and I read somewhere that you can use a topical numbing cream (but don't know how these go with pregnancy)

    For me it's ok.

    When I got them while preg they hardly hurt but now when I am not preggy they hurt 10 times more.

    Definitely bearable. Especially while pregnant for me anyway

    Should also say the first time I got one was about 20 weeks pregnant. It was fine. No tears, twinges or anything really.

    I would check with the place you book with as I know my waxer won't do it close to your due date. So I would ask if you book.

    Do they hurt? Yes! I also felt it hurt more while pregnant, I was more sensitive which my waxer said was normal.

    But I also think it's worth it - I had one done a week before I was due, because I knew it would be awhile afterward that I would be comfortable getting it done again!! I ended up tearing and having an epi so I'm very glad I gritted my teeth and had it done

    If you've never had it done, pregnancy, particularly late pregnancy, is probably not the best time to test it out.

    Lots of women scream and yell while having it done - the hair closest to the labia hurts the most...

    Perhaps get a g-string wax instead. That'll get rid of most of your excess hair, but will still leave hair on the labial folds... which is seriously the most painful part of the whole thing. If you really want everything removed, you could give it a go, but I'd not be seeing if I can hack the pain when you're more sensitive than usual (and pregnancy will normally make you far more sensitive).
