Shaving for the gyno?

This question is mainly for women who shave completely down below (but I appreciate everyone's imput). Do you let a little grow in for privacy at the gynocologist's or do you groom as usual? I never know how to handle the pre doctor visit grooming.

  • Actually, I always shaved right before going to the gyno for 2 reasons. A. I just feel weird having hair down there and B. I wanted to make sure she had the full view just in case there was something there I didn't know about.

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ Anon 12:17.. bushwacked!!! hahahah.. That cracks me up!!! And I always feel weird shaving like.. Does he think I'm a freak? or what.. So I let a little grow to pretend that I dont' care that he's down there in my goodies.. When in reality, I freak out.. and right before I go I get a shower, and "prepare my toot" like it was going to be my wedding night. hahaha

  • I keep my hoohoo shaved. Privacy? The ob/gyn is looking at vaginas all day everyday. I'm sure a lot of them are completely bald and some might have full on vagina braids with beads or mullets! Shoot. There are all sorts of ways one can style their hoohoo hair!

  • LMMFAO @ anon 12:24!!!

    I have shaved since puberty, going to the Gyn never has much of an impact- I might shave my legs (HATE shaving my legs). After 3 kids, it really doesn't affect me any more. just do your job so I can get rid of that horrible slime crotch, and move on with my day.

  • Here is a question about you ever have to wait several days between shaves? If I shave one day right after the next, it makes my skin really sensitive and sometimes gets cut (same with underarms).
