Around my clitoral hood and labia minora there are these tiny bumps that look like pimples! Labia minora is more stretchy on the one side! Normal?

Can be normal: It's normal to have some irregularities and 'bumps' on your hood and labia minora. Sometimes we are born with them, could also be enlarged pores, could also be tiny condylomas. If you've ever had sex, then possible hpv related. Definitely normal to have one labia be more stretchy then the other, just like normal to have one breast bigger than the other.

Evaluation: I think you should have this evaluated by a physician. It's possible that it isn't a pimple and is a vesicle or raised lesion associated with a sexually transmitted infection. It could be a simple cyst and not associated with STI, but you would definitely want it to be evaluated in case there is an infection and you need to be treated. Hope that helps! ...Read more
