View Full Version : Skin Tags in Vagina? TMI
Heya, I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced skin tags just inside their vagina since giving birth?
I was about to use my oestrogen cream (prescribed because sex is painful still 11mths down the track) and I noticed that I have about 3 or 4 floppy, bulbous bits of flesh just inside my vagina. I assume they are skin tags because they have no feeling and are just fleshy bits.
Thing is, I'm not so sure they were there months ago. I don't remember the last time I inspected myself down there and my hubbie doesn't think they were around since Ava was born, so they might be a new thing.
It's horrible. My vagina is totally ruined since I gave birth *sulks*
I'm going to the dr to see if the cream is working in a week or so, and am going to ask her about them. Until then I was just wondering if anyone elses vagina has totally changed in appearance like this since giving birth? Anyone else got weird skin tags?
I havent changed "down-there" but sex is VERY painfull 12 weeks down the track...Did you find the oestrogen cream helps?
I got these when i was pregnant :confused: and the doctors said that it will just fall off after i gave birth and the hormones were back to normal... and they did.. but im not to sure about after birth.. i know they are usually nothing to worry about but i would still ask doctor for peace of mind :hugs:
neostudded, I haven't actually tried sex since using the cream. I have to wait until my next appointment when I can get my contraceptive shot... unless I get some condoms of course :)
I'll let you know if it works for me though.
sarah, i did read on the net that they are normal during pregnancy, but I swear they weren't there until recently. I was wondering if maybe the cream had something to do with it.
At any rate I'll ask the dr when I see her next week.
Cheers for the replies :)
Yes, you know you could head down to the hospital and they will remove them for you with some anesthetic and wire.
Sounds awful but they should be pretty painless to remove.
I was one of the unlucky ones that had a gigantic skin tag from one end of my vaginal wall to the other, I'm just so glad it broke before child birth otherwise I would have been in for a lot of tearing and pain.
It was actually sex and tampons that made it seep out and eventually rip, but gosh it was scary and awful to look at, I felt like a monster.
It's horrid isn't it? When I first noticed these I was kinda disgusted at my vagina.
It used to be so smooth and just... normal... a normal vaginal opening. Now it has these weird things that are just wrong.
I might end up getting these removed, they are awful. I hates them!!
not sure about skin tags but I LOVE my oestrogen cream! I would have killed myself after having DS if the doc hadn't given it to me. There is no way I could have BF for so long without it.
didnt know i could get this oestregen cream. sex was pretty uncomftable for a while there.. 6-7 months and now its finally back to normal! it started to get better when i started weaning. wow, is that why it was so uncomfy? b/feeding?
I don't think they like to prescribe it willy nilly.
I mentioned it to the dr and she sorta ignored me but then she examined me and prescribed it.
Maybe because its hormone replacement they are more careful about prescribing it?
I still haven't booked in another appointment so Im not sure if its working yet. I'll keep you posted though.
But yeah, I think bfing is one of the reasons we get drier down there. I think when you bf you aren't making as much oestrogen or something :)

Silly question maybe but can't you just use lubricant??:confused:
hey there! :)
I once had skin tags too. That really made me feel depressed for a long time. I was trying to remove it by cutting it. But, I was so scared. So i didn't remove it. lol. And, when my friend helped me go to the derma.,he gave me prescription, he told me it could be removed through surgery. but thaty is so costly. i tried searchin all over the net. and i found some of remedies that could help.
If the tags are bothersome, multiple home and medical options are available:
*Tie off tag at narrow base with a piece of dental floss or string.
*Freeze tag with liquid nitrogen.
*Burn tag using electric cautery or Hyfrecator.
*Remove tag with scissors, with or without anesthetic.
Ouch! I find it very weird. I can't take this. I've been still searchin' on how to get rid of skin tags (http://tinyurl.com/wartsgone) Goodluck to all of us~ :):cheerleader1::cheerleader2:
