    Laser hair removal...

    Considering trying this, partly due to some pretty persistent "issues" down below...but I'm very nervous. Anyone tried it? Has it helped with saddle sore type issues?

    I got the undercarriage lasered off years ago, but kept the...er...decorative front section. Zero regrets. Since I did this before I started cycling, I can't say if it's made a difference, but I've had zero saddle issues there.

    Oh, how I wish I could do this! I am very blonde (carpet matches the drapes, ha!), so I'm not a good candidate. The best results usually work for women who have really dark hair and really fair skin. My BFF had her pits, legs, and bikini area done and loves the results.

    Murielalex, how much did it cost? How many sessions? And how painful was it?

    Try Chamois butter before going with such a permanent move. What happens if it is worse after the laser removal? Studies are coming out that state the hair is serving a definite purpose in keep germs and bacteria from getting inside, and should be left au-naturale.
