Letz Procedure
I have done extensive research on the internet about this procedure but no where will they ever mention how things will be afterwards. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I particularly want to know if my vagina will stay the same, I am worried that all the instruments they need to use to get up there will stretch it a lot. And if there is some stretching will it get right like after giving birth I suppose. I am just so worried, my sex life is non existant as it is with all that's happening down there. After this is done do you think there is a chance that the bad cells will return? Having stage 3 abnormalities at only 27 is scary! What can I do? I have become obsessive with cleaniness. Do sex toys and lubricants make matters worse?

Your vagina will not be affected. The instruments which are put into the vagina are very similar to those used for a pap smear. Sex will not be affected. There is a chance that the abnormal cells can recur. This can be avoided by sticking to a monogamous relationship. Sex toys and lubricants will not make things worse.
