The skin on either side of your vagina is called your labia. Sometimes one or both labia can be longer and/or wider. Depending upon the size of the labia, this is sometimes referred to as “labial hypertrophy” which means, enlarged labia. This is a normal variation and usually doesn’t cause any problems. Sometimes girls may complain of irritation from the extra skin rubbing against their clothing. It is a good idea to make an appointment with your health care provider if you have any concerns about your body.
