I'm a 17 year old schoolgirl and I have noticed that something isn’t right with my genitals.
I didn’t pay attention on it before but now, it started to bother me.
When I sit in a school bench for a long time I'm starting to have irritation in my vulva region.
After irritation, of course, even normal walking running can represent quite a problem.
How could I describe me problem? My vulva does not have usual shape because some labia from inside are peaking out because they are too big. So, in a normal shape, the most expressed are those labia minora.
I don’t know is this normal but I don’t think so.
Of course I'm too embarrassed to discuss about this with my parents of with my friends at the school. Please help!
The writer has made it clear that THEY have a problem with what is a natural, anatomical occurrence that no one should be ashamed of!
Surgery is not the answer - maybe less tight clothing would do the trick!
Large thick floppy labia is a big turn on to most man and you cannot worry about it
Right, maybe maybe less tight clothing would solve the "problem"
You suffer from one very common problem called Extreme hypertrophy of the labia minora.
Hypertrophic labia minora are occasionally a concern of young adults or adolescent girls.
Medical definition for this condition is-Labial hypertrophy is defined as a maximum distance of the labia from base to edge of 4 cm.
So, some don’t need any correction and some cases should be surgically corrected for several reasons.
The surgical criteria for hypertrophic labia minora are not clearly established.
No meter what you decide to do, you must know one thing, surgical correction was highly efficacious, safe and satisfactory.
Man you sound like you are promoting the surgeons. Labia surgery shouldn't be a girl's first choice. Only do it if it gives you extreme physical problems. It is not so uncommon to have labia hypertrophy!
I'm 24. A few days ago I went to see a gynaecologist for the first time. She told me that I had very lage labia minora and this is a sign that my body contains too much estrogen. Of course, I was kinda intrigued and she expained to me that this is not abnormal.
What I want to say is that, although I'm still a virgin, I know that men like and enjoy women with large labia minora. And I will never ever feel uncomfortable about that. I lOVE my large labia minora!
I'm a 27y old man, and I can only quote this post.
If you think that boys can be sorta "scared" by big labia minora, you are totally WRONG: in fact around 85%, maybe 90% of man just love bigger labia minora, for various reasons.
And btw it's nothing of "abnormal": something like 50% of the women have more or less hypertrophy of labia minora (which is a natural thing).
It's just like eyes color ... hair color ... breast's size ... penis size ... we are all different, luckly !
Do what you think will make you most comfortable and feel good about it. Nobody will ever know. And men will find you appealing whether you have it or not. Good luck!
I always had mild rubbing issues, but nothing that was painful or so uncomfortable that I had to seek medical assistance. I recently looked into labia reduction, or 'plasty', but there are risks of losing sensation or even awful pain that will last for life. I have a great sex life, and I am fortunate enough to be among the minority of women who have multiple orgasms with intercourse, and would not risk loss of sensation via genital mutilation(call it what you want, that's what it is).
There may be a man or two out there who would prefer a small labia, but as most of the wonderful men on this post attested to, men do not care. I have to admit, I initially was very distressed to learn my labia was larger than deemed 'normal', but I am not very comfortable with my body and feel very sexy despite the fact that I don't fit the perfect mold. I think whoever posted the reply that large labias are unnatural and should be cut to the mold, is very disturbed and should seek couseling and have all sharp objects taken away from them immediatley! :-) As far as comfort, trail and error. Some of my clothes are uncomfortable but with the right undies I can usually remedy the situation, though I am a big fan of going undiless too.
it WAS uncomfortable and i don't like to use the H word but i hated it! i couldn't even walk around naked without noticing how sensitive and uncomfortable it was, rightly so because the labia minora is highly vascular (lotsa blood vessels) so it's noticeable when your clothing/body comes in contact with it.
anyway, i ended up getting the surgery to reduce it to be within the labia majora and i couldn't not be happier about my choice. i know surgery is extreme and i don't even like to take advil or go to the doctor. so believe me people it was not my first choice. but it did go smoothly because the type of tissue in this region of the body regenerates quickly (i will tell you that i went from a speed walker to a super slow walker real quick for a minute there ;-)
i hope this helps all of you that are experiencing this. REMEMBER i am totally down with the hypertrophied labia minora but if it is uncomfortable and you just can't stand it i wanted to let you know i've been through it and this is how it turned out. for all the males that posted about how it's dope when girls have large labia minora and
"it's a turn on" are the sh*t...way to keep it real!
