When hypertrophy of vulva is greatly influencing a female’s life, she might not know what it is and whether she needs a treatment or not. In fact it is not only ugly for looking but also bad for health. Some gynecological diseases come along with it.

In daily lives, it is not only ugly in form but also causes psychological obstacle and living inconvenience, for example patients may feel uncomfortable when exercising, walking, cycling or sitting for a long time due to local extrusion and friction; or feel painful because of the friction of sanitary towel during the menstruation and because of countercheck during the sexual intercourse. Some patients even experience the great pain caused by local ulcer.

Hypertrophic vulvar lips block the vagina opening and urethral orifice, and retain the vaginal secretions and remnant urine, giving a good culture medium for the bacteria.

As time goes by, gynecological diseases come one after another, leucorrhea increases with peculiar smell and itching. And If the environment were not changed, a vicious circle would make things more difficult to dealt with.

Furthermore, to a certain extent hypertrophy of labia minora influences the sexual life. Under this situation, partial excision of labia majora or labia minora should be operated. It is just a small surgery and the result is always favorable.
