During consultations, many women want to know if they will be able to use tampons after their labiaplasty. Because Dr. Brady values patient education, we want to cover that topic today in this blog, so keep reading.

Why Dallas Women Choose Labiaplasty

Every woman’s body is different; therefore, every woman’s reason for choosing labiaplasty varies. However, most women choose this procedure for its aesthetic benefits. Typically, labiaplasty patients aren’t satisfied with the way their vagina appears, and they are self-conscious about the way their loose skin looks and feels.

On the other hand, a large number of patients choose to have labiaplasty for functional reasons, such as:

  • Discomfort experienced when the labia rub and pinch in certain clothing forcing patients to “re-adjust”.
  • Hygiene problems caused by the redundant rolls of labial skin including urine sprays, recurrent vaginitis, recurrent bladder infections and vaginal odor.
  • Discomfort when participating in activities like horseback riding, cycling, or riding jet skis. Tampon placement and sexual intercourse may also be negatively affected.

By removing the sagging labia skin, patients gain a firmer, younger appearance and are able to wear what they want and participate in the activities they enjoy without embarrassment, discomfort, or frustration.

Wearing Tampons After Labiaplasty

After labiaplasty, it’s important to avoid placing anything into the vagina, including tampons. This restriction is only for a short period of time and usually only affects one menstrual cycle. Instead, Dr. Brady recommends her patients wear maxi pads during their first cycle following labiaplasty. This will prevent disruption of the sutures and guard against infection of the area. Once you have been cleared by Dr. Brady, you may resume the use of tampons during your menstrual cycle.

However, it is important to point out that each patient of Dr. Brady’s will have their own individualized treatment plan and will recover at different rates, so be sure to ask Dr. Brady what she recommends for your specific case.
