Skin hanging from vagina, what is it ? *Pics*

Posted , 11 users are following.

hi !

Ever since I've had kids (both vaginal deliveries with tears) my vagina has been looking very different.

i have these weird skin bits hanging from the opening and it's making me very self conscious.

It's not painful or anything, and hasn't change appearance in years, just not aesthetically pleasing.

I've seen 2 gynecologists who told me everything looks normal down there, for someone who's had babies, but it doesn't look like a "normal" vulva too me...

Any idea what it could be?

How do i her rid of this ?

    Thank you Kim !

    i know all vaginas look different but I've never seen anything like mine with extra skin sticking out like this...

    What do you mean by "vaginal opening" ? It looks like extra pieces of flesh have grown there, it wasn't like that before having kids, is that the torn skin from the deliveries?

      its nothing thats grown its wat was already there before but before having children it would have been tighter and more tucked inside when having children it over stretches and pushes outwartds and that skin never goes back to how it was before

      😂 funny but true lol but on a serious note unfortunatly its something that comes along with having children and we just have to put up with it do your pelvic floor excercises even after having children its still important it keeps every tight in there

    ok, this is embarrassing for me but i've read through loads of post and still not clear.

    I have not had sex in a year and noticed this fleshy like appearance on my vagina. I don't know how long it has been like this as I have never really checked before.

    I've been seeing things like genital warts but don't know how I could have got them as I am not sexually active.

    Are these 'growths' normal or should I be worried.

      Looks absolutely normal. No need to worry at all. Has it changed at all in the last 6 months?
