  • you can i just think they dont work very well. I was on blood thinners for a long time for clots in my lungs too. I now have a filter to prevent them. at some point you will not be so worried about cutting yourself hon. and also tryt he creme that removes hair. it works better than the electric razors and doesnt pull the hair. good luck to you.

  • I tried using my husband's once, it didn't work too well over such a big area (leg vs. face), but I like the hair remover cream that comes with a plastic razor shaped thing to take it off. It works like shaving cream and razor, but it just slides the hair off and no chance of a cut. Ladies electric razors work well though too.

  • It doesn't work too well- try a dilepitory (sp??) like nair or waxing

  • I would go with a cream or waxing. I think a mans razor would pull or not get close enough.

  • I prefer them. If you get a good one, they are going to get you a nice close shave and leave you good and silky smooth! I like the Philips Norelco one with the "goo"...
