If Im pregnant, is it safe to use the Nair hair removal cream?

Because I want to shave "downstairs" but my belly is in the way and I cant even see it. Does anyone know if it is safe for me to use the Nair Hair Removal Shower Cream?

  • It says right there on the package not to use on your genitals. Nair is a chemical depilatory, it can cause chemical burns, and abrasions. When I use it on my legs, I do a patch test to see if I'm going to react or not.

  • can your boyfriend or husband shave for you??? when i was preg... i had to feel around and wing it when i needed a shave. LOL try using a mirror in the shower.. sounds weird, but hell, it works! LOL

  • Just do the feel test. If you missed a spot, go back and get it. lol

  • I knick myself when Im shaving it on my own even without my belly in the way lol. So I wouldnt really feel too comfortable just feeling without watching and Im not sure if Id be okay with letting my Fiance do it, because I hardly trust myself doing it.

    I tried the nair but not just on the top part, not the lips or anything and it worked really good and isnt irritated or anything, so i think tomorrow ill try the whole thing.
