    I'm with Pesca - yes, it hurt. But, with loads of stitches and a month of bleeding I was *so* glad I had it done. Made it much easier to keep the area clean and dry.

    Doubt you would be the hairiest. Im sure they see alot of hairy people. While I was preggy with ds, dh made the lovely quote of "your hairier then my dad", he wonders why I was offended lol

    Can't speak on behalf of everyone, but I personally loved it when I got a client with hair. You feel much more victorious when you've rid them of hair than if you start with someone who has very fine, sparse, fair hair.

    Most beauty therapists have probably seen so many, they don't even really care.

    I really want to get one done too.
    Just the thought of dropping my pants and a stranger touching that area feels a bit scary.
    Might get the courage one day to go through with it!

    I'd recommend getting one done before your due date, it makes it easier to deal with the lochia.

    It hurts a lot more during pregnancy though as your blood flow is higher or something.

    I had one the day before each of my csections.

    Uummm.....are you pregnant?? Because if so, when in labour you have no choice but to drop your pants and have strangers touching and looking down there sorry, couldn't resist!

    You honestly get used to it - it still hurts me after several years (I'm extra sensitive) but the feeling afterwards is so clean & fresh, worth the short time pain.

    I had one done for the first time at 24 weeks in preparation to having a couple before the birth....now i am not so sure i will continue.The actual waxing hurt but not too unbareable.....I am now 28 weeks, but now I have the most hideous ingrown hairs.....I look like I have measles or acne on my hooha....and because I can only see them in the mirror I can't get to them to try and pull them out....it's revolting!To make matters worse I purchased the stupidly expensive scrub they recommended to help with ingrown hairs!I think I would rather be hairy than spotty!

    Mazzystar do you use a mitt? Every day or two I exfoliate with a special glove (you can get them at woolies) and I find that helps. Never tried the creams they recommend, but I don't have toooo many issues with ingrowns. Having said that I'm an ingrown picking addict, but I don't have a preggy-belly in the way!
