This has been bothering me for some time now. I'm 17 and my labia minora protrude from my labia majora. I have looked like this for as long as I can remember. Is this normal? Is there something I could have done as a child to cause this?

Thanks in advance

It's extremely common for labia minora to protude beyond the labia majora. Some medical professions actually prefer the terms inner labia and outer labia as opposed to minora and majora, because minora means little and that often not the case.

We actually have a gallery of real life vulvas here at Scarleteen, and I found a picture of a set of inner labia which protude from the outer labia. Here is the link, but will warn you that it contains a real life set of labia: Erin's Inner Labia. If you do choose to have a look; you will see that Erin's inner labia prtrude much further beyond her outer labia; it's just as common for them to do that as not. [Smile]
