I'm seventeen and I have recently noticed that my downstairs looks a bit different than other ones I've seen. It kind of looks like what's supposed to be inside the "fold" of the vagina is hanging now.
When I was around 9 or 10 I realized touching down there felt good, so I started doing it all the time. I didn't know what I was doing cause I had not had anyone explain to me yet. Once I'd had sex ed and figured out what masturbating was, I stopped and did it only sometimes. I feel like this constant masturbating at such a young age did something that made my vagina, labia and clit hang down and look diformed. Can anyone tell me anything?

Hello,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The appearance of vulva differs in all women. No two labia minora can be the same. There are different types of labia minora (the skin fold close to opening of vagina). The sexual stimulation leads to enlargement in the early ages.
Do not worry about the appearance as long as there is no discomfort associated. If still in doubt, then get them examined by your gynecologist to make sure that they are normal.
Take care.
