5. Other harmful procedures include elongation of the labia minora/majora. The labia are pulled/stretched over a period of time using herbs and other implements until they reach a defined length e.g. length of the middle finger. For the purposes of this FGM National Action Plan, Scottish Government also considers a large variety of procedures which do not remove tissue from the genitals. They are generally less associated with harm or risk than types I, II, III, where genital tissue is removed.
