Re: Will guys think that my longer inner labia is gross?

There is nothing unusual with being able to see the outline of it in a swimsuit! Jeez...that is something that drives guys wild! haha! If you feel uncomfortable about being able to see an outline in a swimsuit, just choose a fabric that's a print or is a little thicker...surely you can find a suit that doesn't show off your jewels quite so much..heehee!

Re: Will guys think that my longer inner labia is gross?

I agree with everyone here who has told you that your labia are perfectly fine and that no guy will ever have anything to complain about, if he's lucky enough to be visiting down there. Most inner labia stick out anyway, and your comment about the outer labia not even connecting in the front, that's also common.

One thing that affects perception is shaving, which you say you did... Not that I'm against it (far from it) but suddenly, but the vulva looks completely different, bigger, and more exposed. Plus it adds to the irritation of clothing against the labia.

If you're ever in Miami, check out the World Erotic Art Museum. There are a few displays of vulvas that are fascinating, and really show how varried and NORMAL all kinds of vulvas are, with their obvious, visible inner labia.

Re: Will guys think that my longer inner labia is gross?

I'm not advocating looking at porn but there are zillions of pictures on the internet that aren't all air brushed out so you can see what all types of different women look like...a little embarrassing but this all of a sudden women thinking that their labia/or vulva looks ugly is so baffling(and maddening) to me and I can't stand it to hear someone thinking they need to have surgery or something. You know, they really aren't the cutest things in the world (in a woman's perspective) it's not really like they are supposed to look pretty And yes...shaving will make it look more prominent, if you had hair there you wouldn't even be able to see anything sticking out. And believe you me, the pictures in magazines are airbrushed and also, women in the porn industry do all kinds of weird things to their private parts that most women would freak out if they knew...like using skin bleach on certain areas and surgery too but that's not what we as women need to follow as roll models!

Re: Will guys think that my longer inner labia is gross?

Talking to your GYN will help a lot! Go ahead and make that appointment. It would be good to get screened early anyway. (HPV, cervical and ovarian cancer to name a few reasons.) Going to the GYN is not that bad at all. The surgery is expensive. I think the average is 3,500 bucks. The same average price for breast augmentation but labiaplasty is much less invasive. Some GYN's can perform the surgery too. Ask about it while your there. I worry about the way I look in a bathing suit all the time too. Since I live in the Caribbean, I am in a bathing suit when I'm not working at the vet clinic! I always sneak peaks to make sure things don't look too obvious when I am wearing one. I even ask my hubby if he can see it! I hate being so paranoid about it all the time. It's pretty exhausting to say the least. I am 5.6 and average/thin weight(120 lbs) but I dont think that is too much of a factor for me. I worry about how I shave down there to make it look better though! Silly hu? Yes, I am lucky to be so comfortable with my husband but I still don't think it matters to the majority of men how your labia looks. Hang in there and keep doing research. I find that it helps me. Take care.

Well i just shave it all. and it makes it A LOT less irritated not having hair annoying everything. none of my friends understand that its normal to have a vagina like that. so i dont get much help in that department. and its not like a bunch of guys think its normal either. or understand that it doesnt mean a girls has had sex with everyone. actually i dont even understand how having sex would affect the inner labia at all. stretching wise. its kind of ridiculous.
well its winter now =) and i dont have to wear swimsuits. and of course its 10 x worse in underwear. i did whatever i could to avoid anyone looking when i had to dress out for PE.
3500? thats not that bad actually. not as bad as i thought. it wouldnt take extremely long to pay for that. what exactly do they do? just cut off the skin? lift anything? Id be afraid to ask my mom to go to the gyno. scary. But while reading controvercy over women wanting the surgery just to look normal, people have told them its painful and not worth it? or that it makes sex less enjoyable. for me it would honestly be for irritation and how i feel about myself. i dont see how it would end up being very painful. its just like getting access skin romeved right? i seriously dont even know what the inner labia is for anyway

I know how nervous you must feel telling your Mom you would like to go to the GYN but it's better to just take a deep breath and get it over with. You will need to go anyway. You don't have to tell your Mom about the labia issue but tell her you are concerned with cancers (which is a good enough reason anyway!) and you would like to live healthy. Early detection is the key to most things in that dept.! If your Mom wont take you, (allthough, I could see no reason for a Mom to say "no" to that) take yourself to your local health department. You can go by yourself and they only charge you based upon your income. When I first started going, I went to the health dept. and didn't pay a dime until I started working full time. (college loans can be a drag!) I went to a GYN after I turned 18 and could pay. As a cervical cancer survivor, I suggest you get screened early anyway and that way, you can bring up the issue about your labia. I hope it all works out for you soon. Like I said, keep doing internet searches and keep in touch here. It all helps. Take care.
