someone posted a similar topic recently so it must not be uncommon! it must just be how you are. if you are worried about how you look then talk to your boyfriend about it and explain your concerns. if you are sexually active with him then i'm sure he's seen you down there anyway! i don't think anyone's going to mind.

Vaginal darkness fix
This is the solution, it could be made into an over the counter (if this is something you are part of);

1 cup non basalmic vinegar
1 cup non Darigold 2% milk
1 heaping tablespoon of C&H sugar (cane, and has to be dark packaging, or it may be a knockoff on the shelf. It is 9 out of 10 times likely a knockoff C&H product on shelves at the time of the posting of this.) You can tell if you take it home, and it has a beet sugar taste, and a red feel to it after tasking it.

Mix for two, and a half minutes, and consume.

It will take you back to shade 0 within 2.5 weeks. Do this once a month after that unless you are near a fire with rubber on it. Works for the entire body, not just the vagina, and surrounding area. Share this with friends once you've been able to test this for yourself.

Well you can't do anything about it. This is just how your body is made. We are not all porn stars with bleached vulvas. Yours is perfectly normal!

Do you have proof of this? Men shaving their face does not make it darker. Women shaving their legs and armpits do not make those areas darker. So why on earth would shaving the vulva make it darker?

Answer: it won't. She has a completely natural vulva; many of them are darker than the surrounding skin. Then then inside is normally light pink or red.

Shave as much as you want. It's not making your vulva dark - your genetics are. This is how you were born.

It is how you were made. It is not caused by anything. You are the only one caring about it. Vaginas and vulvas come in many sizes, colors and shapes and yours sound just fine.

What on earth are you talking about "my fathers child like to suck on my vagina's lip"???? Do your brother give you oral sex? If this is the case, you definitely need some help.

Take care!

Darkened Vaginal Area
[I think she meant "childs father".]
Anyway, thank u all for posting on this matter. I thought I was the only one with this problem. Im light skinned. My father is light and my mother is darker.Maybe genes affect it. At first I thought something was really wrong with me but reading this I've come to the conclusion that its just my skin pigmentation changing. My vagina works just fine. ;D So, I guess I'll stop worrying now. I suggest you do too. Making love is amazing no matter what color you are down there. And why would he care? Color of vagina is not something guys worry about when they're lucky enough to get some. Seriously.

I'm 19, not sexually active and I have the same problem too and I'm very self-conscious about it. I mean, I can't even imagine myself naked in front of someone else! I don't dare wear a bikini. It's disgusting!
I have very good hygiene but it still doesn't matter, it looks as if it's filthy down there; I'm not white (Mediterranean), my vagina and the area around it along with the area right under my butt are all very dark. It's very embarrassing and I don't even know what to do anymore to make it at least lighter to go along with my natural skin color :-///

This is not a 'problem'. It is natural.

The biggest shocker for you might be that the skin on your labia is the same as the skin on a man's scrotum. And the area around your anus is the same as his area around his anus. So as much as you think you are unique, you are not. Both men and women have these coloring issues.

So you have two choice:, be afraid, ashamed and hide the rest of your life, or accept that this is natural and live with it. Your genitals were not made for looking at. That is why we put on underwear and clothes. They are very functional. They are a source of pleasure and serve a reproductive function. There are no Mr World Scrotum or Miss World Labia competitions for a reason.

Teron, from Wikipedia:

"The spots are a form of ectopic sebaceous gland: normally, sebaceous glands are only found in association with a hair follicle. They are not known to be associated with any disease or illness and are of cosmetic concern only. They aren't infectious and are a natural occurrence on the body. Men sometimes consult with a dermatologist because they are worried they may have a sexually transmitted disease (especially genital warts) or some form of cancer, but this is not the case. They may equally be worried about the appearance of their penis and what their sexual partner might think of it.
This is a common appearance in most men. It is not rare and most men have this natural feature."

And

"Vaporising laser treatments such as CO2 laser or electro desiccation have been used with some success in diminishing the appearance of this condition if they are of cosmetic concern. However, most doctors consider this a normal physiological phenomenon and advise against treatment. Laser treatment can often leave significant scarring.
Sometimes a doctor will prescribe TCA chemical peels, although as soon as treatment is stopped Fordyce’s Condition will return. Diathermy or liquid nitrogen freezing can also sometimes be used to remove the condition.

Success varies per patient, but some have found relief from pulse Dye Lasers, a laser normally used to treat sebaceous gland hyperplasia, which is similar to Fordyce spots. Treatment with Pulse Dye Lasers is usually expensive but doesn't scar."

So I suppose the bottom line is, unless you are planning on being a porn star or give your girlfriends pictures of your scrotum to carry around, rather use your energy for other things than be worried about this.

Best of luck.
