Waxing During Your Cycle

Dear Sugar
When is the best time of the month to get your legs / bikini waxed? I've heard that you can be more sensitive during different points of your cycle. Afraid of Pain Jane

Dear Afraid of Pain Jane
As far as I can tell, there is no differential in pain measurement before, during or after your menstrual cycle. All I can suggest is that if you are the sensitive or agitated type from PMS then don't do it during that time since it's a pretty uncomfortable process. Also, I would not suggest going in for a bikini wax mid flow, but this is strictly out of respect for your aesthetician. C'mon, do they really needs to see any more than they are already privy to?
