Just that really, is it fine or a no go? (Brazilian wax by the way)

Why would you get a wax at anytime?

EatSpamAmandaLamb Tue 21-Mar-17 23:51:01

Would it really be fair on the waxer? Also I read that type of thing is far more painful at that stage in your menstural cycle.

I think only the person doing it should be the decider of that.

Why not ring the salon and ask?

Is it really necessary though, or can you not wait a few days?

WorraLiberty Tue 21-Mar-17 23:51:57

Because presumably she wants one sonly? confused

"That" time of the month? Is it really so terrible to say "during my period"?

WorraLiberty Tue 21-Mar-17 23:54:45

It's much better than the twee 'AF' has come to visit that so many MNetters seem to favour.

I always wonder why AnyFucker turned up on their doorstep.

Eww no don't be gross.

And yeah, someone else's period blood is gross. Don't be inflicting it on a poor unsuspecting waxer.

Oh god, the dreaded Aunt Flo. Blimey, how far we haven't come.

My very old fashioned Irish Catholic mum used to call periods 'The other things'.

I literally never heard her say the word 'period' in all the years she was alive grin

I guess you could wear a tampon but i can just imagine it getting yanked out as wax was stuck to the string and the explosion of period clots going everywhere....

Is this the opportunity to suggest a mooncup? Surely no matter how intimate they get to do the waxing, a mooncup would be safe from accidental involvement?

Pivoine Wed 22-Mar-17 00:03:08

To answer the question, hmm, I've never actually had a wax and have always trimmed my own topiary, so am not sure if knickers on or off is the norm. If you keep your pants on and use a tampon then why not?

Unless your genitals are smeared in menstrual blood I can't see the problem.

WorraLiberty Wed 22-Mar-17 00:04:04

I just can't imagine why the OP can't wait until her period is over?

I suppose a mooncup would at least be invisible wine

Flipthebirdy Wed 22-Mar-17 00:04:45

I'm not au fait with the procedure but I guess if you're well...containedconfused then it's okay, though not sure why you would want to.

smudgedlipstick Wed 22-Mar-17 00:05:22

Mainly because I have already rescheduled the appointment once and don't want to mess her around, I personally don't see a problem with it, tampon in with the string tucked in she wouldn't even know if I didn't tell her, obv I will and didn't want her to be annoyed I had wasted an appointment if she said no.

smudgedlipstick Wed 22-Mar-17 00:05:57

Bloop I have had this running through my mind for hours 😂 I think I will just cancel

Pivoine Wed 22-Mar-17 00:07:17

No problem then. It's not like she'll be rooting around in there or anything!

LilQueenie Wed 22-Mar-17 00:07:27

mooncups are fine unless you are doing yoga. One girls decided to flip inside out during her yoga session. I have read that there are wax places that allow a tampon to be used during waxing but only for some types of bikini waxing not all. Best to call ahead.

WorraLiberty Wed 22-Mar-17 00:09:22

Phone her and tell her, so she can decide for herself.

For the reason Bloop mentioned, she might say it's a health and safety risk.

Presumably she'll be wearing gloves (do they?) but even so, she might not want to risk coming into contact with a stranger's blood.

AllPizzasGreatAndSmall Wed 22-Mar-17 00:10:28

Eww no don't be gross.

And yeah, someone else's period blood is gross. Don't be inflicting it on a poor unsuspecting waxer.

Presumably the OP would be using a tampon and not freely bleeding everywhere.
Worra maybe she is going on holiday and wants it doing before she goes?

HesitantHeart Wed 22-Mar-17 00:12:11

I've been waxed during my period plenty of times. I just tell the lady that I have a tampon in and I tuck the string up a little when I'm getting cleaned up before she comes in. There zero blood so it doesn't make a jot of difference and I've never been told not to come in whilst on my period.

Also she would be wearing gloves and they give you wipes for before hand.

WorraLiberty Wed 22-Mar-17 00:12:47

Yeah good point Pizzas.

I still think the waxer should be given the choice to decide.
