I am having a labiaplasty as well as a laser vaginal rejuvination procedure performed. I am interested in having an IUD inserted to prevent pregnancy. How long after my surgery should i wait to have the IUD put in, or would this no longer be a good option of birth control for me?
Birth Control (IUD) Before Labiaplasty and LVR

Labiaplasty, Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation and IUD
The IUD should be able to placed approximately 4 weeks after surgery but will have to be placed gently. Discuss this with your surgeon prior to surgery.
The IUD after LVR and labiaplasty
The IUD is still a reasonable option. Double check with your surgeon as healing varies by patient. Generally speaking, you should be able to have this inserted within a few weeks after your LVR.
