Shaving or waxing public hair has become a routine for many women. But, according to a many recent studies, this is a dangerous habit that must be stopped immediately.Ladies don’t be shocked when reading these facts:
# Public hair removal fact 1– A study highlighted that 80% of women had experienced at least one medical problem after pubic hair removal. Researchers accessed 333 women aged between 16 and 40 and revealed: “Overweight or obese women were almost twice as likely to report a complication and almost three times as likely if they also had total hair removal.”
# Public hair removal fact 2- The study was conducted by a team of scientists led by Andrea De Maria and published in the “American Diary of Obstetrics and Gynecology”. The results showed that 87% of women pay for a private intimate haircut at a beauty salon while 90% of all women shave their pubic hair regularly. However, according to De Maria, waxing and shaving should be avoided.
# Public hair removal fact 3- Going completely bare can cause viral infections.
According to the LA Times, “Two French dermatologists and a global health researcher from Emory University have suggested that an upsurge in the spread of the sexually transmitted molluscum cantagiosum virus over the last decade may be attributable to the trend of shaving or waxing the hair around the genitals.”
The skin in the genital area is sensitive and prone to infection, especially when there are small cuts and wounds on the surface caused by shaving or waxing. The area is full of sweat glands, meaning that the region is ideal for bacterial growth. Finally, pubic hair can protect you from STDs, which is why you need to stop shaving or waxing down there.
