It's probably not your vagina, it's probably your inner labia. The inner and outer labia often hang very low "outside" the body, and not always evenly. Only you will be able to tell if this flesh is part of your inner labia, but feel around and you may be surprised.

Flesh from the vagina
There are 3 types of prolapse from the vagina.

Cystocel,Rectocel and Uterus prolapse.


Cystocel is bladder prolapse early stage looks like a small tongue visible at the vagina' frontal area.

Rectocel is a rectum prolapse protruding the vagina' from the rear area.

So determine whether the bulge protruding is from (the front rear or above).

The worse IMO uterus prolapse, try Google pics.

Early stage bladder prolapse can be successfully treated with a round silicon pessary ring and the same for other prolapses.

Sounds like vaginal or uterus prolapse
The network of muscles, ligaments, and skin in and around a woman's vagina acts as a complex support structure that holds pelvic organs, tissues, and structures in place. This support network includes the skin and muscles of the vagina walls (a network of tissues called the fascia). Various parts of this support system may eventually weaken or break, causing a common condition called vaginal prolapse.

A vaginal prolapse is a condition in which structures such as the uterus, rectum, bladder, urethra, small bowel, or the vagina itself may begin to prolapse, or fall, out of their normal positions. Without medical treatment or surgery, these structures may eventually prolapse farther and farther into the vagina or even through the vaginal opening if their supports weaken enough.
There are several different tuypes of vaginal prolapse:

•Enterocele (herniated small bowel) - The weakening of the upper vaginal supports can cause this type of vaginal prolapse. This condition primarily occurs following a hysterectomy. An enterocele results when the front and back walls of the vagina separate, allowing the intestines to push against the vaginal skin.


•Prolapsed uterus (womb) - This involves a weakening of a group of ligaments called the uterosacral ligaments at the top of the vagina. This causes the uterus to fall, which commonly causes both the front and back walls of the vagina to weaken as well. The following are stages of uterine prolapse:


◦First-degree prolapse: The uterus droops into the upper portion of the vagina.


◦Second-degree prolapse: The uterus falls into the lower part of the vagina.


◦Third-degree prolapse: The cervix, which is located at the bottom of the uterus, sags to the vaginal opening and may protrude outside the body. This condition is also called procidentia, or complete prolapse.


◦Fourth-degree prolapse: The entire uterus protrudes entirely outside the vagina. This condition is also called procidentia, or complete prolapse.

•Vaginal vault prolapse - This type of prolapse may occur following a hysterectomy, which involves the removal of the uterus. Because the uterus provides support for the top of the vagina, this condition is common after a hysterectomy, with upwards of 10% of women developing a vaginal vault prolapse after undergoing a hysterectomy. In vaginal vault prolapse, the top of the vagina gradually falls toward the vaginal opening. This may cause the walls of the vagina to weaken as well. Eventually, the top of the vagina may protrude out of the body through the vaginal opening, effectively turning the vagina inside out. A vaginal vault prolapse often accompanies an enterocele.

I have been doing a lot of reading about this problem since I became aware of it...Unfortunately, this is just the last week...I even watched a surgery for the correction of both the anterior and posterior wall problems..From what I can understand this will need surgery...It is caused from your muscles not holding after childbirth, hysterectomies or abuse of the vaginal or anal canal...In some cases the bladder will fall too...I understand they use a mesh to correct this problem..There is also some instrument that they use placed inside of the vagina, for the bladder in extreme cases....I wish I could tell you more on this, but possibly one of the doctors here will help me out...

I know more on this and especially the older woman, but I don't want to go into it here as I would be going off Topic....I hope this helps...

I had a cystoscopy last week and the Dr. said everything is in tact since the hysterectomy....but why is this piece of skin in my vagina and rubbing my taint and making it sore.I am soo frustrated and think i will now try to tuff it out and when it falls out I will then go to the ER and show it to them.

I went to get my regular exam, and informed the doctor of this tissue. She said that IT IS NORMAL. She said the little pimple like bumps all normal. She said that after you have had child this will tend to happen. She went on with the exam, saw everything you all have described, and was like" everything is fine!". Just the female body doing her thing...lol.

My wife had a bladder prolapse, look at in the mirror first, google prolapse and hit the IMAGES menu top left of an open google search page, you can compare what you see, if its oval and around 40mm it could be a bladder prolapse.

A bladder prolapse can be treated with a pessary ring, which is put into the vagina for support and it fits behind the pubic bone and the ulterus angled backwards, most woman are unaware they are fitted, husband/partner can feels it when having sex.

Try typing bladder prolape pictures and compare with different ones. Sounds like a visit to see you doc.

At least you can request a lady doctor if you are worried.

Good luck.

Pink fleshy tissue hanging out of vagina
I have had this problem since June 10th, 2009. At first I was told it was a prolapse, then I was told by another OB/GYN that it was a tear of the uterine hood, then by yet another OB/GYN that it was an elongated uterine hood that I have probably had since I was a child and when I gave birth it torn and now hangs out. I have recently gone to yet another doctor and what it is is a vaginal polyp. It is something that just happens and can be taken care of easily in the doctors office, they are gonna cut it off. Now this only applies to me and you might want to go to your own doctor, but if yours looks like a tongue sticking out and NOT a golf ball or a doughnut, then you might have it also. If yours looks like a doughnut, that is to say it is a circle with a hole in the middle, or it looks like a golf ball hanging out, you might have a prolapse.

I'm sure if you had a first stage bladder prolapse the doctors would recognise it, try a google search and click on images for a comparison.

Scaredteen, it is most likely the remnants from your hymen. It tore on one side but stayed connected on the other side. It is not dangerous, just irritating. With a bit of luck it will just wear away from sex and masturbation. If not, a doctor will need to remove it.

This is somewhat common with septate hymens, but not impossible for other shapes.

I hope you protected yourself from pregnancy and infections and STDs.

Take care and PLEASE be careful!
