Waxing During Pregnancy
Is it safe to get a bikini wax when pregnant? I don’t see why not. You don’t absorb those waxes through your skin. If you choose to have wax when you’re pregnant, you can. It won’t affect the pregnancy. Mary Lake Polan, chair emeritus of the department of gynecology and obstetrics, Stanford University School of Medicine, CA There’s nothing unsafe about it. But because you have more blood flowing to your skin now — especially in your pubic area — you’ll probably be more sensitive to anything that tugs or pulls, so that bikini wax is likely to be more uncomfortable than usual.
You’re also more likely to have some broken blood vessels (harmless but visible) after the waxing. Cornelia Graves, ob-gyn, medical director, Tennessee Maternal Fetal Medicine; consultant; Baptist Hospital, Nashville
