Why Women Should Be Confident Talking About Sexual Procedures
We live in a world where we can openly talk about many different things without feeling ashamed, embarrassed, or scared. However, talking about sexual procedures, such as a vaginoplasty, can still bring about those feelings for many women. It is important for women to feel comfortable and safe in their own bodies at any stage of their life. Talking about these kinds of sexual procedures is not only empowering, but it helps to address problems and boost self-esteem.
What Are Sexual Procedures?
Sexual procedures are procedures that are done to decrease sexual dissatisfaction and pain and increase pleasure and self-confidence. Whether you are unhappy with the size of your labia or you are feeling pain during intercourse, there are sexual procedures that you can discuss with your doctor that can help address these issues.
Some examples of sexual procedures include:
- Labia Puffing
- Clitoral Hood Reduction
Why Being Confident is Important
Being confident, especially when you are thinking about sexual procedures, is incredibly important and can only benefit you. If you shy away from discussing or researching these procedures, or you think that there is no way they can help you, you might be missing out on treatments that can help you. No matter what age you are, you should be able to speak up about something that causes insecurities or discomfort in your body.
Talking to Your Doctor
Not only is it important to feel comfortable with these kinds of procedures, but it is also important to feel comfortable talking about them. If there is a part of your body that you feel unhappy with or something that hurts or does not feel right, it is important to speak up.
Some symptoms that should definitely be addressed to your doctor include the following:
- Discomfort during sexual intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal tightness
- Vaginal looseness
- Unhappiness with size or shape of labia
- Pain during sex
- Irritation when urinating
- Urinary incontinence
- Vaginal burning or itching
When you sit down and discuss these symptoms with your doctor, he or she will come up with a plan that can be beneficial to you and help you with your specific issues. Opening up and being truthful can help your doctor decide on the right treatment for you. For example, if you are unhappy with the size or shape of your labia, your doctor may recommend a labiaplasty. If you are feeling decreased sensation during sex, your doctor may recommend a vaginoplasty as a treatment option, which can correct vaginal laxity.
