How can u see: Skin inside vagina is not visible to you is it outside vulval skin you are talking about if yes it has no relation to hysterectomy is it itchy any discharge.

Anatomy: Not sure why you are looking inside of your vagina. If you are feeling or having symptoms then that is what you should describe. Seeing lighter skin is not a medical condition or disease.
