If you have a history of pelvic pain conditions, it is essential to inform your healthcare provider or gender-affirming surgeon during the pre-operative evaluation for clitoroplasty. Clitoroplasty is a surgical procedure that involves creating or enhancing the clitoris, and it’s essential to ensure that any underlying pelvic pain conditions are appropriately addressed before undergoing elective surgery.

Pelvic pain conditions can have various causes, such as endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), interstitial cystitis, pelvic floor dysfunction, or other gynecological or urological issues. These conditions can impact the sensitivity and function of the pelvic region and may influence the surgical approach and outcomes of clitoroplasty.

Your healthcare provider will conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history, including your history of pelvic pain conditions, and may request additional tests or assessments to better understand your pelvic health. They will use this information to determine if clitoroplasty is safe and appropriate for you.

In some cases, individuals with pelvic pain conditions may still be eligible for clitoroplasty if their pain is well managed, and their healthcare provider determines that the surgical procedure is unlikely to exacerbate or worsen their pelvic pain.

If clitoroplasty is deemed safe for you, your healthcare team will take all necessary precautions to support your well-being and optimize your surgical outcomes. They may collaborate with other specialists, such as gynecologists or urologists, to address any pelvic pain concerns before and after surgery.

Open and honest communication with your healthcare provider is essential to ensure that your specific needs and concerns are addressed throughout the surgical process. They can provide you with personalized guidance and support to make informed decisions about your gender-affirming care and overall well-being.
