My vagina looks weird. The left side has extra skin and when you hold it it’s really longer than the right side. Please help.

female gender symbolThe 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.
