After Male to Female Vaginoplasty, will I be moist down there

Dear Dr. Reed, after Male to Female Vaginoplasty, will I be moist down there?


Dear Dinita,

While many of our patients report lubrication, natural moisture may be supplemented either with oral sex and lubricant.  A natal woman exudes lubricant (a transudate) when aroused by prompting seepage of serum flow from the vaginal capillary bed .  Surprisingly all natal men (we have biopsied*)  have estrogen receptors in penile and scrotal skin, so estrogen creams might be helpful as well. Your vulva is fashioned from urethra which exudes mucus.  Looks moist and is moist.

Take a look at a photo of one of our patients.  When Mr. Right comes along, you’ll be ready.
