Hi, dh arranged for me to have some anal bleaching done as a birthday treat but now I am about 6 weeks pregnant. Do you think this would be ok?

ellideb Mon 04-Aug-08 20:42:56

Are you serious?

twiggle Mon 04-Aug-08 20:45:54

yes! I know that your hair can react weirdly to bleach during pregnancy but not sure about skin. I don't want to end up green or something.

ellideb Mon 04-Aug-08 20:48:14

Why oh why do you want to bleach your A hole and why oh why would you/your DP consider it a 'treat' Please enlighten me. Surely there are more suitable birthday treats out there?

Oh dear there really is no point bleaching your anus when in 8 months your fanjo will look like a car crash.

piss take, for sure

wtf is anal bleaching???

StealthPolarBear Mon 04-Aug-08 20:55:14

Is that too rude for quote of the week Ledodgy?

StealthPolarBear Mon 04-Aug-08 20:55:52

It sounds like the opposite of a euphemism, if there is such a thing

ellideb Mon 04-Aug-08 20:57:41

2point4kids, I was just laughing over this with my DP after reading the OP, I think pornstars do it so that their anus is less brown/dark in colour and a prettier shade of pink. It's for those who are into anal sex I think??? Very much a Hollywood thing! (Why do I know about this??)

I think this beats WWB's elastic as worst present doesn't it??

OP you have made both me and my DH go 'eugh' and then snigger a lot - ta grin

Seriously - if that's a 'treat', hate to thinkg what happens if he's pissed off...

Anal bleaching, wow what a treat... hmm

twiggle Mon 04-Aug-08 21:16:24

I know it does seem funny but he is a perfectionist we are already discussing vaginioplasty for after the birth. I am all about a wonderous natural experience for the birth and all but would like it all tidied up afterwards.

onepieceoflollipop Mon 04-Aug-08 21:16:25

Let's hope WWB's mil isn't on the thread then thisisyesterday - might give her ideas!

Also to the OP (if you are for real) - many women get piles etc during pg. I would imagine that bleach in that area would sting somewhat. - just a thought.

nobodysfool Mon 04-Aug-08 21:17:35

I'm stil laughing!!!!

thisisyesterday Mon 04-Aug-08 21:18:13

pmsl even more at him being a fanjo perfectionist.

seriously? vaginoplasty? does it really matter what it looks like down there?????

wouldn't you have preferred a nice handbag or something?>

onepieceoflollipop Mon 04-Aug-08 21:18:29

twiggle either you are trying to have a giggle, or you need to have a serious talk with your dp.

What will he do for the first few weeks after the birth when (let's be honest here) you will be in a bit of a mess even with a straightforward birth? Lots of bleeding, possible stitches, a bit "stretchy" etc etc.

Sidge Mon 04-Aug-08 21:19:31

Hope he's got enough cash for the stretch mark laser removal, tit lift and tummy tuck as well...

SiennaMillerLovesBotoxFiller Mon 04-Aug-08 21:20:33

Oh my dh has a friend whos wife is getting this done and she isn't even a porno star!

wotulookinat Mon 04-Aug-08 21:21:04

If he's a perfectionist in such extremem ways then he'll be filing for divorce when he sees your saggy boobs / saggy tummy / stretch marks / odd fanjo lips / roids / leaky boobs etc etc after the birth.
With a bit of luck, having a baby in the house will make him so tired that he won't notice that your asshole is a bit too dark in colour. hmm

Twiggle, anal bleaching is not my cup of tea, but if it is something you want to do then maybe you could postpone til well after the birth when you are a bit more back to normal. I don't think I'd risk it in pregancy especially as it is quite a new procedure (at least, new as far as I've heard of!) and there probably isn't much known about the side/after effects.
