Hey, I'm just wondering if anyone has experience of labiaplasty for health reasons rather than cosmetic?
I have longish inner labia and to be honest the appearance has never bothered me that much, certainly not enough to try and change it with cosmetic surgery. But recently I've started to have problems with getting small tears in the skin and sticking to my underwear, it's very painful and can sometimes bleed. I get fairly dry due to medications I'm on and have tried various methods of keeping the area less dry in an attempt to help the problem, but it doesn't really work. I visited my doctor a few days ago and she suggested referring me for labiaplasty to reduce the size of my labia and prevent the problem of catching and tearing. It sounds like it might work, but I'm feeling a little odd about the idea of undergoing what I've always thought of as a cosmetic procedure, I've never wanted to make changes to my body in that way. However if this could really help then I think I'll do it because the pain is so awful sometimes! I've done a lilttle reading online and some people have mentioned that it has also helped clear up recurrent thrush and UTI in some people, which would be great if it's true because I also get problems with that. So I was wondering if anyone here has had this done or knows anything about it?
