I have a question that I need answered if anyone knows the answer to it. I revently noticed while looking at myself one day in the mirror and saw that I dont have a minora labia, but have the najoria labia I think it is ? It is a slit looking tissue that looks somewhat like a tongue ? I know this is really weird sounding, but I never noticed before. Is this bad ? Why do I only have one ? Thanks so much if someone knows that answer.

Here's a diagram of the labia majora and the labia minora.

As you can see, the labia minora are the "slit looking" lips of the vulva that look kinda like a tongue, and the labia majora are the outer lips of the vulva, that usually have some hair on them by the time you are a teenager. The labia minora are inside the labia majora. You really do have both. Honest.

Just to add to Erin's post - I find that the labia minora can come in a large variety of sizes and shapes. From quite long and large to very small so that it is difficult to pinch them with your fingers. Check out the resources Erin gave you and do a little self exploration to see what you have.
