That’s a Lovely Necklace You’re Wearing!
Tracy Kiss is a lingerie and fitness model, blogger and physical trainer. She also suffered for years with vaginal pain while exercising and during intimate relations. "It was something I accepted and believed every woman faced as part of being female," Kiss told Newsweek. “I was unable to ride bicycles or workout in tight clothing so my hobbies and interests suffered. During intercourse, I would wince and after I’d be very sore for days.”
It was 2016 when Kiss had a burning sensation in her vaginal area and sought medical attention. He explained her diagnosis as having excessively long labia minora, which caused friction which in turn led to inflammation and cysts. After developing cysts Kiss decided "to remove the excess labia and prevent ongoing pain," via a labiaplasty.
After the surgery Kiss decided to keep the pieces of excess labia that had been removed and turn them into jewelry!
Kiss says, "I wanted to raise awareness for the struggle that women with large labia face and to inform them there are options available to live a pain free life," Much as we check our breasts for lumps and attend smear tests women should be informed of genital health and well-being,"
