I have a small cut between my labia majora and clitoris. It will not heal. No sign of infection. Do I need something to help aid in healing?

Labial Cut: In time, it should be healing. The Labia are vascular, and healing should take place soon, but the area needs tome to "rest" so it can heal, so be sure you are not having intercourse or masturbating with objects, in order to let the labia heal in time. If infected, or still does not heal, see the Dr for an evaluation of the area. Best wishes. ...Read more

My frnd is complaining that her labia majora&minora are black. Is there anything to change the colr? Is it normal? Plz suggest

What do you suggest if my labia majora is wrinkley! Help!?

What do you suggest if my labia majora is wrinkley! Help!?

Labial "wrinkles": Unlike facial wrinkles labial wrinkles develop as one ages or has multiple vaginal deliveries because of stretching and loss of fat content and elasticity. There have been surgeons who "face lift" the labia, but the medical necessity of such work is questionable. Given the lower labial unseen location, it might be time to put away the critical "mirror". ...Read more

See your OB provider: Giving birth is traumatic for vaginal and perineal tissue as well as external genitalia. This trauma can cause bruising, swelling, bleeding because the tissue has been stretched and is very fragile. You may also have a vaginal infection such as a yeast infection causing a lot of inflammation. Hormonal changes may also contribute. See a doctor for an exam, tests, and effective treatment options. ...Read more

I've definitely had women concerned about bumps that are normal architecture of the vagina. ...Read more

I'm a 22 y/o female, and I masturbated from the age of 5 till 12, my labia minora are bigger than my labia majora now and I'm so embarrassed! Please help?

Not related: While it is possible to elongate the labia, it usually requires intentional and prolonged stretching, a practice performed in some parts of africa. However, it is unlikely to be caused by masturbation and there is no reason to feel embarrassed about it. Labia protruding beyond the labia majora is quite common and not a reason for concern. ...Read more
