Hi Ruth

I am in my third IUI 2ww.  I am due to go to the hairdressers tonight and have a semi-permanent hair dye.  lasts 6-8 weeks.  I think permanent hair dyes are contra-indicated in pregnancy?  however should i be having a semi-permanent colour in my 2ww???

Sorry this is a really trivial concern.  However it is really playing on my mind.

Thanks Ruth, or anyone else that can give me some advice.

CR,

I've had my roots done every month (with permenant colour) since i started IUI, my thinking was the clomid made me feel rough without actually looking it as well!

I was successful on my 4th attempt and will continue to have my hair done throughout this pregnancy. I am aware there is conflicting advice and i feel its up to the individual.

Good luck, lets hope its 3rd time lucky for you

thanks for you response lucy lou.

i cancelled the hair appt.  it was just causing me too much stress with what to do or not to do.  i didn't think the stress was worth the coloured hair for me.  ttc is stressful enough.  i have postponed the appt for 2 weeks to see what happens.  i will just have to wear a bandana, hat or something similar!!

it's so hard when you don't get conclusive answers, especially re something that should be simple enough!!

lots of luck in your preg.

Hi CR
I'd never heard of hair dye being contra-indicated in pregnancy until I worked in the States when one of my fellow nurses came in one day in floods of tears because her pregnant cousin (mum of 5) had a sudden death at the hairdressers having her hair dyed. I'm sure it's extremely rare but I guess pregnancy caused her to build up some kind of antibodies to the chemicals.
It was such a sad story but thought I'd better pass on the info.
Wishing you every you every success in your 2ww.
