    I have loose skin and severe stretchmarks all over my body. This has happened since giving birth to my daughter in November last year. The stretchmarks are showing no sign of fading and are getting worse and spreading over most of my skin, and all body oils and butters i have tried to fade them with, i am allergic to and exercise makes the loose skin and stretchmarks worse. I'm becoming more and more paranoid and self conscious due to this and i don't know how to sort them out. Any advice?

    The labia majora (outer lips) appear to be goose bumpy? That's probably the result of plucking the hairs out. Some people just have bumpy hair follicles - it's nothing to worry about. The loose skin in the middle is likely your labia minora (inner lips) and/or clitoral hood. It's extremely common for them to be visible, or hang down past the labia majora - most women are like that. Puberty causes the vulva to change significantly (and somewhat unpredictably, since everyone's body is unique), and and many of the changes you've noted are common. The dark skin, and changes in size and appearance of the labia are likely related to puberty. These changes are a normal part of becoming an adult, and will likely last a long time. The vulva continues to change as you get older, so who knows what will happen, but the changes will be far less significant that those that you've already experienced. The elasticity change is a little surprising though - the labia often become more elastic during and after puberty. If you mean they've become more wrinkled, that often does happen too. I don't think there's any cause for concern, but you can always talk to a doctor if you're worried about anything.

    I had 2 csections 9&7 years ago (15 months apart). After my operations i had to have district nurses come to my house to clean my wounds for months after. This is because my wounds opened up. It was an awful time especially when you have a new baby. I can't get rid of my overhang on my stomach. Yes I am obese, especially since giving up smoking 3 years ago! And yes I do suffer with depression. But i can't even look at myself in the mirror or let my fiance touch me. Im trying to loose weight using orsilate, and some exercise. But its so hard. I also worry about after i loose the weight, that im going to be even more gross with saggy skin to look forward to; great! What I'd love is some form of surgery to help me loose the weight then surgery afterwards to nip n' tuck! Im 36. I don't know if im asking a question here or just want some advice. I weigh 115kg, and im loosing weight slowly but im really struggling.

    I am am 22 years old and I've been diagnosed with PCOS as well. I am currently overweight as well and need to lose the weight. It will never be easy to lose weight. What helps me when I really try is to avoid sweets because I don't have the will power to just eat 1 or 2 cookies. I don't snack on chips, drink soda, eat fast food, or eat late. Try simple steps to get you moving more like parking farther back in the grocery store parking lot or taking the stairs instead of the elevator or having sex! Any excuse to get moving. Something that really helped me when I was trying to lose weight, was talking to my doctor about an appetite suppressant called Bontril. When you start to eat healthy and less than you normally do, your body panics and thinks it's gonna starve and that's why you are more hungry when you first start to diet, but an appetite suppressant could help you stay on the right track to a healthy weight! Good luck, hun! We can totally do this!

    Nothing to worry about friend. You testes require colder temperatures than your body that's why they are dangling outside of your body and not safely tucked away inside you. when your scrotum is loose it means your testes are too warm and are trying to cool down by moving away from your body and when they grow tight against you they are too cold and are trying to warm up. Don't worry about it but i do recommend wearing looser underwear in summer to give your balls more breathing room.

    I had some piles symptoms a few months ago and took cream which seemed to have worked. Since then I have noticed some extra skin in the area - almost like a muscle has been torn at the anus and the skin is loose there on wards. It is not unsightly but doesn't look 'normal' does anyone have any experience of this or know how to 'tighten' it up again?

    I had a child in January and at the time had to have stiches. the stiches were removed but I have been left with a tear on the side which has left 2 flaps of loose skin. Also there is a loose flap at the bottom of my vagina too. The whole of it is now loose around the entrance where before it was all tight. I find sex uncomfortable too. I have been to my GP who have said sex might be uncomfortable as the loose skin could be going inside and rubbing. She said that the only fix is reconstructive surgery but unfortunately that is unavailable on the NHS. I would be grateful for any help or further information you could give me.

    hi i'm 29 years old and have 3 children. whilst carrying my first child 10 years ago i gained 4 stone and only started to loose it 3 years ago with regular exercise. i then became pregnant with my second child and very quickly afterwards i had my 3rd child. i am now the thinnest i have been for 10 years but i seem to have a lot of excess skin on the front of my stomach which is hanging down to my pubic area and only seems to be getting bigger the more weight i loose. i'm hoping to loose another stone in weight but i'm very worried how this skin is going to look if i loose this weight. i do regular yoga and aerobic and muscular workouts, but is there anything i should concentrate more on to help the skin and muscles around my stomach tighten back up? any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

    My daughter had a c-section 2 years ago, and she has put weight on, but is now starting to loose it. She asked to Dr if there was anything that could be done about the excess skin and his reply was loose weight, well won't that add to the excess skin? She has to wear a size bigger than needed in clothes to "tuck" the excess skin in! She's only 20! Someone must know what can be done

    I have a similar problem, I became very large around my belly when I was pregnant and she was a big baby, I had an emergency c-section aswell but now have an overhang where the scar is and saggy skin and belly button. I'm 23 and plan on having another one but I'm so worried about how my stomachs will then look. It gets painful where the waist line of my trousers sits on my belly and I get in the top part of my stomach after wearing things like leggings from where they've sank into my belly. My partner isn't bothered by It but I'm so self confident about it, it's almost like I still have baby pouch but she's now 2 years old :( My gp sent me to physio and told me to do Pilates as my stomach muscles tore and needed to bring them together, which is now sorted, but the problem is the overhang :(

    I am after a bit of advise....... i am 21 and over the past year have lost 2 stone in weight but still have a little more to loose. I am worried about getting excess skin if i loose any more weight, my stomach skin is quite tight at the moment and i do exercise on a regular weekly basis. So just after an opinion really and if there is anything i can do to prevent this from occurring? Many thanks for your time

    I used to have a long loose foreskin which would not stay retracted. The inner lining was thin and delicate and easily inflamed, sounds a bit like yours in that respect. My GP was very dismissive which put me off resolving the problem for years until I eventually went private and had a circumcision - marvellous, I wish I'd got around to it sooner. If anyone out there is thinking about circumcision and is unsure, don't hesitate any further - if your GP won't help you, there are now plenty of circumcision services locatable via the internet. No man should have to suffer in discomfort or embarrassment when there is such a wonderful solution. You really do need to think beforehand about the style of result you want - between high/low and tight/loose - if your inner skin is overly sensitive you want "low" to remove most of it and "tight" is the more hygenic (a "loose" style can still collect sweat and smegma around the rim which can smell when you use a urinal as the remnant skin is likely to roll back off the glans). Your glans will be sensitive for a while until it gets used to the new regular contact with your underwear and then you'll wonder what all the anxiety was about.

    Hi.av been doing body building on and off for over 11 year iam currently 18/12 stone i have always been big and stocky i lost around two stone pretty quick and now have loose skin around my stomach area and got some really big rips/stretch marks around that area and its starting to get me down and depressed. and my weight is always up and down i have currently piled on two stone again and cant seem to keep the weight off long term iam going through stages ov dieting loosing it all and then piling it all bk on iam wondering if my skin will ever stretch back to normal are if i loose alot ov weight will it still stay there and look horrid.
