How to Treat Labial Fusion?


Medical Treatment:
  • Usually, a labial fusion or adhesion separates without treatment naturally
  • Treatment is not needed for labial fusion unless there are other symptoms, such as dribbling after urination, that may cause problems or discomfort
  • Labial fusion is treated with oestrogen cream or ointment applied daily or, very rarely, surgical separation (very rarely needed to treat labial fusion)
  • Oestrogen creams and ointments are cause some side effects, especially if used for long periods than a few weeks. For more than six weeks, they should not be used
The possible side effects are:
  • Skin darkening in the genital area
  • Irritation around the genital area
  • After you stop using the cream or ointment, vaginal spotting or bleeding
It should go away after you stop using the oestrogen cream or ointment
Surgery may be considered if:
  • A fusion is particularly thick and severe
  • There is trapped urine in the vagina, that may dribble out after urination and cause vulval soreness
  • Oestrogen cream or ointment does not work
