hi
extra skin on inner lips may be due to skin tag or viral infection or other,
if u have never sex ,then chance of viral infection is less
u need to be examine by doctor
i dont think anything serious
but as ur going to marry u must be aware of it

Hi Welcome to Health care magic

Do not get worried, the extra skin like present at vagina is Hymen.. It is normal in all the females.. it will get break during first intercourse... If still you are worried , then you must be clinically evaluated and treated by a gynecologist..

Hi Dear,
The extra skin on both inner lips may be wart. You do not have to worry about it and yes go ahead and get married and enjoy life. Of course it is a good idea to consult a gynecologist, because from what you state we can only speculate. A gyncologist on examination can advise you better.

Well I have developed these bumbs on the outer side of my vagina. They are not genital warts because I am a virgin. They aren t gross looking either. They are red and some look like pimples. They are on my butt too a little bit. They are itchy and when i itch them they hurt. My dads girlfriend said it could be from shaving and a mixture of wearing pads. So for the last two days I have been wearing tampons but the bumps are still there and still itchy. I read some things and girls said pads are causing them to have like chemical burn, but these loads haven t ever bothered me this much. So I don t know what it is or what to do. What do you think?

Hello. I had a leep procedure done without my doctor doing a colpo. She mentioned that she will do the colpo during the leep procedure and that I need to have it done anyway because I came back at high grade HPV. She cut off a huge chunk of my cervix in which all of it was normal tissue. Now I m having all kinds of sharp pains in my pelvix, pain during intercourse and weird periods that stay on for about two weeks. I went to another obgyn who stated that this doctor should not have done the leep without doing the colpo first to see if it was even necessary. Do I have a lawsuit and what can I do about this?
