Abstract  
Labial adhesions are mostly seen in teenagers and menopausal women, however they may be encountered rarely in the postpartum period. Surgical division under local anesthesia is more effective than topical estrogen. Case: In this article a young women at the age of 23 years, who gave normal vaginal birth 12 months prior and who had difficulty in coitus because of labial sinechia is reported. During physical examination, an adhesion between right and left labia minora approximately three cm in length was observed. The adhesion was seperated under local anesthesia and the patient was discharged from the hospital on the same day. On postoperative seventh day control, she had neither complaints nor complications. Conclusion: Labial adhesions are rarely encountered after normal vaginal childbirth. The most effective treatment of labial sinechia is surgical division under local anesthesia.
