Before you shave your pubic hair, learn if it is safe or dangerous!

Is shaving pubic hair dangerous

Removing excess hair on our body has become an issue not a long time ago, just a few decades. Sexual revolution, mass media which promoted nudity and attractive bodies of models, lingerie which became smaller and smaller during last century – these are the reasons why an idea of removing hair in our intimate zones came up.

Today women prefer to remove hair from their genital area. If this area is covered with hair, it is considered to be unattractive, non-sexy, unsanitary.

But there is an opinion that men and women, who regularly cut or shave their pubic hair, are more likely risking to acquire a sexually transmitted disease, than those who prefer to leave their hair where they naturally are present.

Medics state that shaving or different ways of removing hair leave micro cuts or damages to the skin, which are very exposed to any kind of infection that happens to get to the skin. Also, people, who take care of their “clean look” in the pubic area, are usually sexually more active, which makes them more liable to get a STD.

These diseases are transmitted during sexual contact or just contact between genitals.

University of California in San Francisco made a research, which involved 7500 grown-up people. The results of this research were published in a special edition of “Sexually Transmitted Infections” magazine.

Research results report says that there are two most likely reasons that connect removing pubic hair and getting a sexually transmitted disease. First is damage of skin during the process of removing hair, whatever the method; second is higher sexual activity of people who care of removing intimate hair.

“Naked” zones

Most men prefer using an electric shaver to remove excess hair. Women prefer a safety razor.

Every fifth grown-up of each sex uses scissors to shorten hair.

Medics say that sharing an instrument is not an issue when we talk about passing an STD. These infections just don’t get transferred through a razor, or electric shaver. Researchers have found no trace of infections on blades.

Most infections get into our body through micro cuts and scratches we get when shaving or waxing or any other way of removing hair. So doctors advise not to have any sexual contact until these small wounds completely heal.

Around three-quarters of responders (84% of women and 66% of men) reported that removing hair in intimate zones has become a regular ritual which is essential and inalienable for them. They have been removing hair by shaving, cutting or waxing hair for a long time already and believe in doing that further.

17% of responders said they go through hair removing procedure once a month, 22% do that very often, meaning daily or weekly. This actually depends on the method of hair removing, because shaving and cutting needs to be repeated more often than waxing.

Avoiding louse

Of course, researches show that removing pubic hair raise the risks of getting a sexually transmitted disease or any kind of skin infection. The more often you remove your hair, the more often you get exposed to all kinds of viruses, such as gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes or papilloma.

But there is good news also. If you remove your intimate zone hair, you lessen the risk of getting pubic louse. Of course, even if your partner has them, they won’t transfer to you, because they need hair to live in.

So, to shave or not to shave? It is up to you. Just consider all pros and cons and make your own decision. If you follow all the advice, remove your hair carefully, make as little damage to your skin as possible, visit a professional and take a good care of the zone after hair removal, avoid sexual contacts a few days after the procedure and definitely have protected sex, you can secure yourself from getting into trouble with sexually transmitted diseases. And you definitely should be careful always, no matter if your pubic hair is there or not.
