I always took an advil before and rewarded myself with chocolate after. A talkative technician helps too.

Yes definitely take the advil.  Find a waxer who has excellent yelp reviews.  I’ve had good experiences with waxers who were highly rated by yelp.  Also find a waxer that uses hard wax.  It’s a lot less painful.

If you let us know what area you’re in maybe someone here will have some suggestions for a good person to go to.

I don’t think friends forcing you to get one is a reason to have one.

I know there are certain times of the month that are better to have them done apparently?

I want to get a brazilian done for my wedding, and I’ve never had one before. I have pretty coarse hair, sorry, Too Much Information. I am worried, though. Does it… bleed? :-[

Um, why are you friends forcing you to have a brazilian? It’s between you and your husband, no one else’s business.

It hurt the first time but then I got numb to it a good technician will make it less painful telling you to hold your skin here and there.  It hurts everytime though when they take the hair out of the inner parts.  

I liked doing it when I could afford it.  Wore nicer lingerie and what not and felt comfortable lol.  I always rewarded myself with a  food and or beer afterward at a new restaurant down the street I hadnt been to yet.

@toasty:  if you have a good waxer, no you should never bleed.

@Heningersasha:  yes it gets much easier every time.  The first time hurt but it wasn’t unbearable at all.  and it was quick.  I would say someone who knows what they are doing should be done in less than 10 minutes.  After that it just gets easier and easier.  I’ve been doing them for years and at this point I can carry on a normal conversation with the waxer the entire time. Ironically enough, the part that hurts the most is the part closest to where the ovaries are located but that hair would get waxed off even during a normal bikini wax.  so there’s really no way around it.  Once you get past that outer corner area, it’s all down hill.  

Also a major benefit is that if you do it regularly your hair will grow in less and less.

@rose123:  I wish I could just use the hair removal cream in the brazillian area :(. 

If you want to do this, you can! Get some Soft Sheen Carson Magic Shaving Powder. It comes in a small gold can and it’s sold at Target, Walgreens, etc. It’s designed for black men to use on their facial hair (because they have issues with ingrown hairs from shaving). It’s really gentle, painless and works really well — much better than Nair and other depilatories. If you’re going to do the full monty rather than leave a landing strip, I’ve heard you can put Vaseline on the sensitive parts to make sure the cream doesn’t get on them. The downside is you will get stubblier faster since it doesn’t remove the hair below the surface like waxing, but you can do it every few days.

I had one done once, and will never, ever, EVER have it done again. Not only did I bleed (more than what seemed reasonable) but it’s like I broke out in a million tiny pimples down there that lasted WEEKS. I was so mortified I refused to let me ex. see me naked until it was cleared up :

Obviously this is not always the case as some people seem to have no problems with it.

there is NO way I’d let them put wax anywhere other than my eyebrows…

I use a cream dipilatory (Veet or Nair for Sensitive skin)

@rose123:  You are more sensitive from 5 bays before your period to 5 days after, so go outside of that window.

Try Emla cream — it will numb the area but make sure to follow the directions as written otherwise you won’t get maximum benefit. Cool

I took a T3 and a gravol before mine.. it wasn’t so bad! But I don’t think that is a good idea and probably not doctor recommended!!!
