Can some please answer this question for me. What is the inner labia minora/vulva suppose to feel like? Rough and bumpy or smooth? Mine feels rough and bumpy but when I went into the clinic for a physical the doctor said it was normal.

Brief Answer:
Enlarged glands

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
The inner labia usually feels smooth.
However there are lot of sebaceous glands in this area and sometimes they get enlarged even without a cause.
In such situation it may become rough.
It is not a matter of concern, you dont have any disease.
These glands may subside on there own.

I hope there is no other symptoms like pain or itch.

Let me know if yo have any other doubts.
Thank you
