Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.

Small purple XXXXXXX over inner side of labia is due to venous dilatation.
It is one of the side effects of microgynon (hormonal contraceptive).
Estrogen content of microgynon causes venous dilatation.
Since labia is highly vascular structure it is natural to see dilated vein through thin epithelium.
There is nothing to worry about as long as there is no swelling or raised area.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have further doubts.
I will be happy to answer.
