Is Removing Your Pubic Hair Safe?

Published

on

A lot of people think that removing pubic hair is the best option and the debate about whether one should or shouldn’t remove their pubic hair has been long raging. Although doctors have advised against it, due to the possibility of getting an STI (Sexually transmitted infection), some women still choose to go completely bare down there. 

Is it hygienic and safe?

59% of the respondents to the JAMA Dermatology survey conducted by Dr. Benjamin Brevor, a urologist at the University of California have confirmed that they indeed choose to remove their pubic hair for hygienic reasons. However, removing pubic hair, especially regularly can cause injuries and cuts that allow bacteria to penetrate. So, what you may think is good to keep you clean down there, might actually be the cause of ‘not so cool’ infections. The only thing you’re dodging here is pubic lice.

the JAMA survey also found that a quarter of the people who use shaving, waxing, sweat, or scissors to clean up down there experience injuries. These injuries include: burns, cuts and rashes.

Well, you should avoid shaving at all costs. First off, shaving can cause the growth of ingrown hair and after a while, you’ll find that the new hair that’s growing has become thicker, taller and darker.

Second, through the survey, it was discovered that more than 60 percent of the injuries were related to cuts, meaning shaving was more dangerous.

Waxing is slightly safer, but still leaves the skin exposed for cuts or ingrown hairs.

Dr. Brever advised grooming less often and removing less hair to minimize the risk.

Moderna Inc’s vaccine against coronavirus has received on Friday the emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, making it the second vaccine to be registered.

The FDA made the announcement following a panel that was held for the agency with outside experts who endorsed the vaccine, and a week after the FDA’s authorization for Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech SE.

The vaccines from Pfizer and BioNTech, which share the similar technology, have been on a massive nationwide rollout and been handed out to thousands of U.S. healthcare workers. Moderna is expected to follow the lead of those vaccines.

“With the availability of two vaccines now for the prevention of COVID-19, the FDA has taken another crucial step in the fight against this global pandemic that is causing vast numbers of hospitalizations and deaths in the United States each day,” FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn, M.D, said in a statement.

“It is my hope that all Americans will protect themselves by getting vaccinated when the vaccine becomes available to them. That is how our country will begin to heal and move forward,” top U.S. infectious disease scientist Anthony Fauci said in a statement.

We hope that with vaccines underway that this nightmare can finally come to an end and that 2021 will bring us the new start we desperately need.
