the first time is always worst, honest! you will find pain gets less and less, i have been having it done about 13 years and i find it quite relaxing now (except bikini line ouch!)

I agree with Pinkmamma. I've been having my legs and underarms waxed for about 18 years now. I have them done about every 6 weeks now because the leg hairs are geting sparser and sparser. I was told not to have a waxing done just before your period as it can be more painful. Also, I was told that if you take an asprin an hour before waxing, it doesn't hurt as much. (Underarms are always quite painful though, and I still haven't managed to pluck up the courage to have a bikini wax!!)

I can't bear the feeling of shaving. I was really bad at it, and always ended up wandering around for days afterwards with bits of loo paper stuck on bloody cuts and scrapes on my ankles .

Next time go the chemist beforehand and pick up some Emla. Apply about an hour before your waxing appointment.

LOL, just had my first wax today. Found the bikini line okay though - it was the back bottom part of my legs (near the ankles) that were really sensitive for me.

I once had my bikini line waxed about a week before my second son was due-OMG-I don't know how the poor girl managed to get both sides done-the pain was HORRIFIC!
NEVER- wax when pregnant or due on!
