In these body-conscious times, the number of these kinds of surgeries has increased five times over the last decade. But with the NHS now only carrying out vaginal surgery in the most extreme of cases, what happens to the women who are turned down but still want to have it done?

The doctors take a trip to Fuengirola on Spain's Costa del Sol to help Brits abroad with embarrassing body problems. The mobile clinic visits Weston-Super-Mare, where Dr Pixie meets a local with an eye-watering condition. Also Dr Dawn examines a woman with an intimate problem. Dr Pixie helps a woman whose nipples are sticking out in the wrong places after breast surgery. In the main clinic Dr Pixie meets a man whose tight foreskin makes sex difficult and a woman with a painful vagina. There's a fertility theme in the clinic as Dr Pixie investigates why one woman has intense pain during sex, and why another seems to have a baby bump, although she isn't pregnant.
Puberty is a time when your body goes through lots of changes. It can be wonderful and exciting, but it can sometimes feel overwhelming. This is the time when your body changes from being a girl into being a woman, and develops the ability to have a baby. Puberty for girls usually starts between the ages of 8 and 13, and lasts a few years. Girls who are overweight may start puberty a little earlier, and girls who are athletic or underweight may start later.
