Severe degree of vaginal or labial adhesions is due to the healed intrapartum lacerations which requires surgical correction that are rarely reported. A woman presented three months after home delivery with apparent obliteration of the vagina by adhesions resembling a thick membrane. This was divided surgically with successful restoration of the anatomy. Prolonged immobilization with tight apposition of the thighs most likely led to the adhesions in this case.
