Have you been rocking a full bush and you are considering having a trim? Have you wondered, apart from the fact that it makes a difference aesthetically, if there are any other reasons to shave down there?

There are a few potential health risks to keep in mind. Whether the upsides outweigh the downsides of taking a razor to your downstairs area is up to you. Perhaps taking a look at this information below will make things a lot clearer.

  1. Shaving your vulva does present some potential health problems. 
  2. Frequently shaving down there may irritate your skin and follicles, paving the way for pathogens such as group A streptococcus and methicillin resistant staph aureus (MRSA). 
  3. The hair helps protect your sensitive bits from friction and even bacteria. 
  4. So if you want to err on the side of safety and let your locks grow, remember that medical science is on your side. 
  5. To keep your shave safe, use shaving cream and a sharp razor, and shave with the grain. This will help keep your lady parts protected from the burn. 
  6. There is no need to be perfectly shorn for a gynaecological appointment because your pubic hair can be moved aside during an exam, it will usually not present a problem for your doctor.
