Do you make it a point to have your legs and woman area shaved (or arty least trimmed, etc) before you go to your obgyn for your yearly checkup?
I know the obgyn has seen it all. I just feel weird going without being shaved or what not. Am I the only one?

Yes, I shave lol. Only times I didn't were towards the end of pregnancy when I couldn't reach down there as well. But still shaved as far as I could reach lol.

Yep. Even during pregnancy I would nearly kill myself to be all clean and smooth. I was horrified when I went into labor with stubble and wasn't able to shave before delivery....lol

Yes I make sure I am. I know a gyno has seen all kinds of stuff but I still want to "look good" lol

Yes. I shave down there and I shave my legs. Once, when I was pregnant, I forgot (probably couldn't reach it anyway). I forgot I had an appointment too. I drove out there last minute with hairy legs and cooch. The worst part, though, was I had on flats and no socks. They always make My feet sweat. I had to take them off and i made the room smell like corn chips. Lol -__-

Before my hysterectomy, I wasn't allowed to shave before hand. I felt so awkward. Especially since there were a few more people there than during a normal appointment.

I make sure everything is tip top. Even when I was pregnant, I did some serious shower acrobatics to make sure everything was on point for every appointment.
