I obsessively pluck deep ingrown pubic hairs with metal

Customer Question

I obsessively pluck deep ingrown pubic hairs with metal tweezers and even thought i use antibacterial wipes I'm so worried, can infections be caused by this and can they go up to your ovaries?

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Infection can rarely occur but it will be a local infection causing pain and redness locally. This infection will not be able to go up to your ovaries. You can safely relax and not worry regarding this.

Take care.
