A Quebec City couple is suing a gynecologist for $225,000, claiming post-delivery surgery left the woman's vagina too tight to have sex.
The woman was admitted to CHUL hospital in September 2010 and gave birth to a boy.
The suit says Dr. Guy Bolduc had performed an episiotomy, a common procedure in which an incision is made below the vagina to facilitate delivery.
The doctor noted an internal vaginal tear after the baby was born, and performed surgery to repair the problem, says the suit.
He then advised his patient to avoid sex for six weeks.
