Ok, I"m a bit hairy (thick coarse hairy) and I'll be having a cs in a couple of months. I'm thinking of waxing or sugaring (advice on which is better?) bits that I won't be able to reach afterwards plus my bikini in some way. I know from experience that shaved bikini hair tht grows back is incredibly itchy, so I need your advice ladies:
1. Get everything waxed/sugared (legs, underarms, brazilian)
2. Get legs ,underarms and a landing strip done with waxing/sugaring
3. Just get legs, underarms and the bikini line done (but quite a big area still)
hi! In similar position...going in for 3rd cs in 2 weeks.. First time it didn't cross my mind and they didn't seem to do anything except perhaps shave the top off,just below the scar....2nd time they gave me a dreadful hospital razor and I had to go off to the bathroom just prior to the surgery and get poor DH to do a DIY job....so wouldn't recommend option 4 (!) This time am debating whether to get brazilian/bikini wax....had a trim a couple of months ago and was always going to go for the full thing just prior to delivery... However..am remembering the itch and the possibility of getting a skin infection...that would be bad timing!
You, sensibly are thinking ahead a bit more so you've got time to try it out...The main thing is definitely comfort for you in the end though..It is not going to be pretty down there for quite some time whatever delivery you have..(!)I am going to go for the soft option and have a little trim this week.. Good luck with it!
I have been getting brazillians all the way through pregnancy and will get one a few weeks before due date ... i find that i dont get any reactions to them whereas i always get a rash with a razor - be warned though - if you dont normally get waxed it does hurt a little more than normal ...
I did an 'all over' very close trim with clippers before my induction. I ended up with emcs and they didn't need to shave anything. The incision is also extremely low (mw's commented on it lots!). I find you don't get stubbly with clippers the same as with a razor.
I just got the lady shave to mine!! They didn't seem that bothered about it being completely 'bald'!
My husband need fainted on the spot though, I didn't know I was having a C section until the night of my induction, in the morning the midwife said are you all tidy downstairs, so not thinking I just pulled up my nightie, pulled down my knickers and showed her my fango, she was so shocked!! But I was so scared I didn't bat an eyelid!!
I have had 2 em c/s. Throughout both pg's i have had my bikini line waxed as usual. Then on the day they just shaved the top bit off. As per happy camper i keep mine trimmed short alos though i use that ladies razor that has a trimmer on the other end.
Dont remeber it being particularly itchy on regrowth. I would go for your usual level of waxing whatever then let them do the bit they need for the cut.
This thread has made me wonder. When an emergency c-section is under general anaesthetic do they put you out first and then shave you? It seems a bit ridiculous to waste the time of an anaesthetist and everyone else in the theatre for that but honestly no one shaved me while I was conscious. They pushed me down the hall to the theatre then said 'We're going to push on your throat now' and that was it. (I didn't sign a consent form either though of course I consented verbally.)
