Why do i have a long labia minora? i'm a 16 year old girl. I've always had a labia minora longer than most. But after having sex it became longer and more loose. I'd like to know why i have one in the first place and what can i do to make it look like the other side of my labia minora because it's only on one side.

Your whole body is uneven. It is most noticable in your vulva, breasts, face and feet. It is just the way humans developed with more and more genetic 'errors' with every new generation. It is normal and natural.

There is not much you can do about it. There is a very expensive labiaplasty operation that can cut it to size, but medical insurance will not cover it unless there is a medical problem. It is just not worth any second thought. You are so much more than just a vagina with perfectly even and small labia. As a matter of fact, it makes you a unique woman - just think how boring life would be if everybody looked the same.

Cutting apart your genitals for aesthetics isn't worth it. The images we see in magazines of vaginas are actually photoshoped to remove the labia minora, a lot of woman have something similar. It's actually a very natural way for a woman's vagina to look, don't be nervous or worried about it, most people care about the person inside more than how they look like, if you're with a guy who hassles you about it, he's a jerk and not worth it.
