Vagina irritation: It is better if you let vaginal tissue recovers itself from this irritation. Having sex may prolong healing.

Irritation: Many at-home hair removal methods, such as Nair, can cause significant vaginal irritation and redness. It is important not to get any of these substances in or near the opening of your vagina. Sex is not recommended until the irritation and burning has completely resolved, as it may worsen your discomfort.
