Labial adhesions are usually a pediatric condition and are asymptomatic. They are identified by parents or on routine examination. They can also occur in postmenopausal age group albeit uncommon due to hypoestrogenism causing senile vaginitis. Here, we have two cases of labial fusion in different age groups, 17-years-old and 65-year-old females presenting with urinary symptoms. The release of labial fusion was done under general anesthesia in both the patients. The labial adhesions are usually a pediatric condition and are asymptomatic. Although one needs to have high index of suspicion to diagnose this rare condition, as the patient often presents with common gynecological symptoms of difficult menstruation and urinary dribbling. It can also occur in postmenopausal women though uncommon, one needs to have high index of suspicion due to hypoestrogenism.
