Brazlian hair removal effect on fertility

Laser used for hair removal selectively target melanin in the hair follicles and hence won't go deep. In otherwards it will not affect your fertility.

Laser hair removal

No.  Lasers are light waves that only penetrate a short distance beneath the skin, that's why they are able to destroy the hair follicles.  The light waves do not travel anywhere else in your body and will not affect your ability to have children.

This will not affect your fertility. The laser only penetrates a portion of the skin. It can't go deeper. No worries.
