okay, so this is weird, and possibly rare... I have been checking it out, and no photo or site gives me the info I need... I have this extra skin under my urethra: Around the vaginal opening, and just above as well as the bottom part of the vaginal opening, and going up until below the urethra. Is this normal? Its almost as if I have a third much smaller set of vaginal lips/labia, or bits of hymen left still, but I have been sexually active for a few years now, so is it possible to have hymen tissue still? Im so confused!

NaiPie, It is almost certainly hymenal remnants. Once your hymen thickens and pulls back some time during puberty, it becomes much more elastic and does not wear away that easily. At natural child birth, it will normally disappear.

Take care!

what is it?
well i have have the same thing but it was sometime after having my daughter and has not disappeared its been almost 6 years now? anyone know what it is? i asked a doctor once, she was busy didnt pay much attention but said it had to do with the bladder, and the only way to remove it was to get it surgically removed. And medicare wont cover the cost.
