Can I have my period around the time of a labiaplasty?
Having your period is annoying, no matter WHEN it happens. The good news is that there's no wrong time to have a labiaplasty when considering menstruation. The only real problem is tampon use. Dr. Oppenheimer recommends "nothing per vagina" for one month after your labiaplasty. That means no intercourse and no tampon use. Feminine napkins (as annoying as that may even sound) are the best option for managing menstruation after your procedure. Dr. Oppenheimer uses a very simple approach to labiaplasty aftercare, and you can even download our postop instructions HERE.
