Brazilian Wax during Period

I have a brazilian scheduled for this Friday, the day before my FI & I leave for a cruise.  I just realized that I will be on the last day of my period that day.  I know I've read that getting waxed during this time is more painful, but will the salon do it?  I do wear a Diva cup, but I don't want to gross out the technician & the stem does show a little.  Fridays are usually pretty light but I wouldn't want to go without anything just in case... Shaving isn't really an option for me- I have horrible reactions to it. 

Would you get waxed during your period & how would you go about it?

  • I would call the salon and ask...i know that some will not do it, but most will (you just have to wear a tampon...so diva would be fine). you don't want to get there and then have them say they won't do it, so just call to make sure :)

    Thanks weddingcaketaster.  In the back of my mind I knew I should probably just call & ask myself but I was worried they would say they don't do it so I figured I'd try to see if other nesties have had good luck with it. I bit the bullet, called, & they don't have any problems with it.  Problem solved! 

  • I'd wait a couple more weeks. I don't know if it would make the area more sensitive plus they may not do brazilians during periods.
  • If you could wait a few days, so that you would not be embarrassed or thinking about it, then postpone it. But if you cant wait, then you should call the shop and know if they will be doing it and how they will handle it. If they do, then clean up and wear tampon just right before the procedure. Good luck!
