A 27-year-old female asked:

My labia hangs low and it gets extremely swollen and painful after sex it swells so bad that it feels almost hard would my insurance cover labiaplasty?

GYN exam: prominent labia is not a disease per se. Get a thorough pelvic exam by your GYN to rule out any infection, inflammation, cyst or abscess formation: a labial surgery would be a choice of last resort.

It is highly unlikely that health insurance would pay for the surgery.

Maybe: There may be some situations where this can be covered. It mostly depends on the surgeon you see so ask him or her and get a couple of opinions before you give up on this.
