Before going to your yearly OB/GYN exam, should women shave "down there"?
Viewer Ashley asks The Doctors about shaving, "Does it even make a difference?"
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains that some of her patients shave and some keep it natural. She notes according to all medical guidelines, "There is no medical or hygienic reason" to shave before an exam.
She warns if you are going to shave before an exam to use warm water and be mindful of any cuts or nicks, which can become infected.
The Doctors also note that instead of shaving the area, you can groom the region and cut the hair shorter without shaving it off, which may help you avoid possible infections or abscesses.
