Does laser hair removal affect fertility?

There is currently no scientific evidence to suggest that laser hair removal affects fertility. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser energy to selectively target the hair follicles, which causes the hair to fall out and prevents future hair growth. The procedure does not affect the surrounding tissue or organs, including the ovaries or testes.

Additionally, laser hair removal is typically done on external areas of the body such as the legs, underarms, bikini area, and face and not on the internal organs.

It's important to note that if you're pregnant or trying to conceive, it's best to avoid laser hair removal as a precautionary measure, as some studies suggest that laser hair removal may not be safe during pregnancy. Also, it's always best to consult with your doctor or a specialist if you have any concerns about the safety of any medical procedure.
