There are very few side effects from vaginoplasty.  However, the benefits are immense.  It has restored a normal and beyond normal sex life to many of our patients.

Unlikly to affect fertility.

It is very unlikely for a vaginoplasty (tightening of the vagina entrance) to affect your fertility. You should see a fertility expert about your inability to conceive.

Vaginoplasty should not effect fertility

+2

In and of itself the vaginoplasty should not have a direct effect on fertility unless there is such sufficient scarring as to prevent sperm reaching the ovum.

You may want to discuss this with your gynecologist and or reproductive endocrinologist.
