is it normal to have long inner lips on the outside of your vagina, mine are so long they get in the way of sex, when i put in a tampon, when im sitting in a chair they bunch up and pinch me, is this normal, and how much will it cost to have the extra skin removed, and where can i go?
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
The outer vaginal lips are longer and larger than the inner ones. They have to be separated to insert a tampon and while having sex. However, if this is getting in way of your life, then first consult a gynecologist to ensure that they are indeed larger than normal. Maybe there is inflammation and this can be corrected by medication. Otherwise you will have to consult a cosmetologist for plastic repair. Hope this helps. Take care!
