Laser Hair Removal and problems with conceiving

Patient: Can laser hair removal cause problems with your hormones or conceiving ?

 

 

Doctor: Laser hair removal does not cause problems with hormones or with conception. However, many health care providers recomme nd avoiding laser hair removal during pregnancy because of the lack of information about the effect on the fetus. There are no studies that evaluate the safety of laser hair removal during pregnancy.  I hope the information helps, take care.
