Any problems after an OB clears to shave (down there)? I like to keep things nice and clean....but not sure if it would irritate the skin and cause any problems!

If you really insist on shaving there, try to do it as gently as possible; use shaving cream and gentle razor. If it makes things worse, then, of course, stop. :)

If you are female waxing seems to be the preferable method.

Do a search, there are many long posts on the subject.

no problems after clear up

After all signs from primary OB disappeared, I (male) went back to shaving down there with soap and disposable razor with no problems since. Just make sure there are absolutely no sores or you will autoinnoculate something aweful with the razor.
