Elongation of labia minora, used herbs, painful. Is there a medication to speed the process?

Hi Doc, I am 26. i come from a culture where its strongly agreed that women should elongate their labia minora . We usually use certain herbs to do it but this is so painful for me and I have always been discouraged whenever I tried. Is their any ointment that you can advise me to use that speeds up the process and where I can access it from? Please assist because there is no way I escape this in my culture.

Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
There is no way to elongate the labia minora scientifically
Nor should it be done.
Surgical option is best if you insist.
Fiddling with the private parts can lead to infection, scarring and disfiguration.
Take care.
