  User's Response
Labia minora may vary widely in size from woman to woman. There are no specific causes for protruding. Young woman with protruded or large labia minora is usually considered very sexy because the large labium has attraction for men. Largeness of labia minora has no connection with virginity.

Hello, Sorry for asking such a personal question. I have a hard lump on the top right inner labia majora that was painless at first and grew in size over a span of 3 weeks and is extremely painful to pressure now. The skin over this lump is smooth. I m really worried and not sure what it is. I don t think it s a bartholin cyst because the lump is not closer to the vagina.

I have a very small lesion on my labia majora on the interior side. It s uncomfortable but only when touched. It s about the size of a pencil eraser. It s slightly raised, red and has what looks like dead skin over top of it. Recently, my b/f told me he had some bumps around his penile shaft that were looked similar. Is this related? What is it? Should I be worried about an STD? I do regularly shave that area and was originally thinking I must have nicked it while shaving.

Hello! I have a question because I can t find very much information online about it. I have a bump on my inner labia and (other than shaving irritation) I never have these so its strange. There is only one bump, and it is hard but not painful. There s no head on it and it s not even red. There s also no itchiness, unsual smell or discharge. It hasn t changed shape over the past 4 or 5 days. It doesn t seem to match the description of herpes or other STDs, thrush or some other infection that I ve read about it. I am up to date on my STD tests and have taken the vaccine for HPV. So Could this one bump be the result of friction from my clothing? And should I refrain from sex with my monogamous partner until I sort it out?

Hello, I m 17 years old and still a virgin . I ve been very worried. I have stringy skin hanging from my labia minora right underneath my clitoris. I have one hanging on the right side and maybe 4 or 5 on the left side. and they are stringy and semi thick and I checked with a mirror and it appears like more are forming in the middle. The 4 or 5 on the left side are very close together. & the ones that look like they are forming in the middle are spread apart. I m so nervous! Should I go see a doctor? Is there something I can do at home? Will they go away in time? Please help! As extra information I noticed when I was inserting a tampon in.

Hi Doc, I am 26. i come from a culture where its strongly agreed that women should elongate their labia minora . We usually use certain herbs to do it but this is so painful for me and I have always been discouraged whenever I tried. Is their any ointment that you can advise me to use that speeds up the process and where I can access it from? Please assist because there is no way I escape this in my culture.
