Red face Enlarged labia minora - December 24th 2013, 08:31 PM

Right so its been bugging me for a while, the left side of my labia minora is a lot bigger than the right side (the left hangs outside of e labia majora whereas the right side pretty much doesn't exist). It's always been like this but as I'm getting older I'm worrying about sexual partners freaking out..masturbation can be painful because the left side kind of folds inwards at times and just gets in the way.

Is there any reasons for this? Or anything I can do?

It's completely normal. Not all vaginas are the same, and sometimes they're a bit lopsided and not symmetrical. If it bothers you a lot, you can look into plastic surgery but it seems like more hassle than it's worth, to me. I doubt your sexual partners would be freaked out about it. If they're not able to be mature about seeing a female body then maybe they're not ready to be doing so.

Hope I helped.

Dude that's totally normal. In fact many women have one of the labia bigger than the other. And trust me any sexual partner is going to be focusing more on the fact that he/she is lucky enough to be getting it on with you than checking out minor details like vaginal symmetry!!

As others have said, this is completely normal. I, too, have an enlarged labia minora and it took me a long time to learn to accept it. I was so afraid that sexual partners would be freaked out about it, but my ex-girlfriend loved it. If your partner truly cares about you, she or he will not care what you look like down there. All bodies are beautiful in their own unique way. Like Taylala said, you could get plastic surgery if you're really unhappy with it, but my advice is to embrace what makes you you. I can almost guarantee you that something like this will seem trivial and unimportant the older you get. When I first noticed I had an enlarged labia minora when I was about 13 or 14, I hated it, but now that I'm 20, I love the way I look. It's different, sure, but that's not a bad thing.

Keep your chin up -- you're completely normal!! Hope this helped.

Totally normal, there are plenty of women who aren't perfectly symmetrical, and if any of your partners say something stupid about it, then they aren't worth your time.

Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair.
