Hope this is the right place to post this.

Does anyone know if it's possible to have genital plastic surgery while pregnant? I was going to have it done before, but never seemed to find the chance.

The reason I ask is that I had a really bad accident as a young child and, for lack of a better description, stretched out some skin just above my urethra into about a 1 1/2 inch..dangly bit. Actually, until I had a catheter with ds1, I thought I had stretched out the urethra itself, but the nurse said no, that was fine. Anyway, that extra bit of skin is hugely annoying & frequently causes pain. It was especially bad while pregnant & giving birth to ds2. And the older I get, the more troublesome it is.

I want it gone so much that I even have considered tying it off like a skin tag, but there are nerve endings & blood vessels in it (unlike a skin tag) and I dread to think how horrible that would be. It might be worth it if it would guarantee having it *gone* by the time this baby comes.

I'm hoping that the procedure to get rid of it would just be a local injection, a snip (it's probably not even a 1/2 inch around) & making sure there aren't any blood vessels left open. I'm just a little concerned because I know the genitals get a lot more blood in them while pregnant & I don't know if it would be possible to get anyone to cut something off in that area during pregnancy. Anyone have any ideas?

are you thinking like when you deliver? Just having the doc snip & stitch it? I'd ask I mean you are going to be sore anyway..
