I think you should ask at the salon. They may have safety issues with you being pregnant.

Just echoing the others really. Check with the salon or your midwife see what they say, if in any doubt don't use one it's not worth taking the risk.

Hi - it is not reccomended, apart from the possible heat issue, your levels of the chemical that turn you brown are all over the place and you could end up patchy, or end up suffering with what they term 'the mask of pregnancy' which is a brown 'mask' that develops over your face and may not fade completely. There is apparently a risk to the baby as well, according to one of the books I read. Better to get a fake tan if you want to look tanned, and avoid the sunbeds. They are not good for you pregnant or not.

Nicolet is right, if you go to a tanning studio and they know you are pregnant they will refuse to let you use a sunbed, if they are reputable!
Its something to do with your skin changing and being more sensitive!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
