Childbirth Injury

After childbirth, some women have conditions which result in the entrance to the vagina being constricted or painful. For some women, the opposite problem occurs where the vaginal entrance is too large. These problems can be extremely distressing for young women. It is normal to have discomfort in this area after childbirth, however, persistent pain is not normal and can be treated successfully. For those who do not experience a natural resolution, our physicians can treat these problems with medications, hormone therapy or physical therapy. A small fraction of women require corrective surgery of the vaginal entrance.
