Fenton’s or modified Fenton’s procedure is performed to widen the introitus in women with superficial dyspareunia secondary to scarring. The narrowing of introitus could be due to scarring secondary to perineal tears during childbirth or from conditions such as lichen sclerosus or vestibulitis. Though Fenton’s procedure is more familiar with day to day gynaecological practice, very few papers were published in the literature. This procedure is routinely offered to women who suffer from superficial dyspareunia after childbirth.
