After giving birth some women suffer from stretches or tears to the pelvic floor muscles and the vagina. This can lead to incontinence and cause some women to feel that they have changed; in addition it may have a negative impact on sexual relations.
As a result the HC Marbella pelvic floor unit carries out surgical procedures designed to reconstruct and recreate this area.
During the first consultation specialist doctors in urology and gynaecology explain to the patient the urological and sexual problems that need investigating. The vagina and the pelvic floor muscles are also examined.
The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic. During the operation, part of the back wall of the vagina is drawn back, and the pelvic floor muscles are joined together as well as the mucous membranes of the vagina. Recovery is usually quick, but the patient may need to take painkillers during the first week after surgery.
The discomfort and tension gradually disappear after two weeks. Sexual intercourse can normally be resumed after a month.
