Is Removing Your Pubic Hair Safe?

Published

on

A lot of people think that removing pubic hair is the best option and the debate about whether one should or shouldn’t remove their pubic hair has been long raging. Although doctors have advised against it, due to the possibility of getting an STI (Sexually transmitted infection), some women still choose to go completely bare down there. 

Is it hygienic and safe?

59% of the respondents to the JAMA Dermatology survey conducted by Dr. Benjamin Brevor, a urologist at the University of California have confirmed that they indeed choose to remove their pubic hair for hygienic reasons. However, removing pubic hair, especially regularly can cause injuries and cuts that allow bacteria to penetrate. So, what you may think is good to keep you clean down there, might actually be the cause of ‘not so cool’ infections. The only thing you’re dodging here is pubic lice.

the JAMA survey also found that a quarter of the people who use shaving, waxing, sweat, or scissors to clean up down there experience injuries. These injuries include: burns, cuts and rashes.

Well, you should avoid shaving at all costs. First off, shaving can cause the growth of ingrown hair and after a while, you’ll find that the new hair that’s growing has become thicker, taller and darker.

Second, through the survey, it was discovered that more than 60 percent of the injuries were related to cuts, meaning shaving was more dangerous.

Waxing is slightly safer, but still leaves the skin exposed for cuts or ingrown hairs.

Dr. Brever advised grooming less often and removing less hair to minimize the risk.

Mind-Blowing Health Tips

We always hear about tips with regards to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Sleep early, wake up early, exercise…, etc. But there are other tips which may sound like they’re not truethey are. And we have compiled six of them for you!

 

  1. Drink coffee before you nap. At first this may sound crazy. Why would I drink coffee if I want to sleep?! The fact is, drinking a cup of coffee before a 20-minute nap will help you become more alert once you wake up, because 20 minutes is roughly the time needed for the effect of coffee to start to kick in.
  2. Eat more so you can eat less. It sounds crazy! But no! Eating more in the sense of grabbing a nutritious meal/snack instead of a cracker as a snack, because a cracker, for example, would lead you to feel more inclined to eat as it would increase your appetite. Try instead to have an apple along with some peanut butter.
  3. If you’re too tired, don’t go for Redbull! The idea here is that though Redbull sound like the wises option, it would rather cause unpleasant side effects such as irritability and anxiety, due to its high levels of caffeine.
  4. If hot, drink hot! It makes sense–wait for it. In India, people are used to drinking a hot beverage during the hot weather, because a cup of tea, for example, would lead a person to produce more sweat, and that sweat eventually evaporates and cools off the body.
  5. If exhausted, go for a run! The idea here is that exercising energizes your fatigue and reduces depression and changes your mood.
  6. Don’t type. Write. Though typing your notes would allow for more space and room for huge amount of data, writing them down would actually be a better alternative, because it would lead you to memorize that which you’ve written down.

In an attempt to protect the environment, the country of Denmark has devised a new way with which it can inform the public with impact of consumed goods. Thereby allowing shoppers to be informed prior to making a purchase.

The idea is that food products will have stickers on them that show their environmental impact. This came as a proposal by the government and will establish the project by this week. “We want to give consumers the means to assess in supermarkets the environmental impact of products,” said the Minister for the Environment in Denmark.

This sure is a great idea. It allows for the general public to be informed and conscious about the surrounding environment.

The smart pharmacy can also store over 20,000 packages of medicine and reject expired drugs. A highly efficient way to save time and ensure control over what goes out to patients.
