How Can You Make Your Labia Smaller?

Dear Heather,

How can you make your labia smaller? Can you exercise it? Mine is really big and fat and it makes me feel self-conscious. Should I get surgery or is there an easier way to make it smaller?

I’m sorry you’re feeling so self-conscious about the appearance of your whole down there area. We all have parts of our body that we want to change, unfortunately, and while it’s easy to say you should just love the body you were both with, it’s much more difficult to put that into practice.

Unfortunately, I can’t tell you a natural way to make your labia smaller because there is no natural way to make your labia smaller. There is no exercise you can do that will make it appear smaller (although there is an exercise called kegels, that will tighten your vaginal muscles, but that’s different). Every vagina is unique – some women have larger, “fatter” labias, while others have smaller ones. Some women have vaginal lips that hang low, some have uneven vaginal lips, and some women have small ones. I can go on, but I think you know what I’m trying to say.

The point is, every vagina looks different, and so you aren’t weird because your labia is big. Realistically, there is nothing for you to feel self-conscious about. You can’t control the way your labia or vagina looks, it’s just the way you were made! You may read some myths on the Internet about making it smaller (for example, I saw one girl say that putting apple sauce on your vag will make it appear smaller. Rest assured, this is 100 percent not true), but please don’t trust them. And while everyone has their own preferences when it comes to physical appearance, I can promise you that most dudes out there don’t care if your labia is big or small. They’re just excited about looking at a vagina!

Yes, there is such a thing as labiaplasty, which is a version of plastic surgery that can make your labia smaller or make your vagina look different. And while that will always be an option if that’s what you choose to do, I would recommend holding off on that. Plastic surgery is a big deal, and altering the way you look down there (or anywhere) isn’t something you should take lightly. I would first try to accept the way you look, and be proud of your body. If, in the future, you feel that it will really make you happy, it is always something you can look into to.

take care,

    Hi, I am 29 year old mother and after my first pregnancy I felt a drastic change in my sex life, I felt lack of interest in having sex with my husband and later I found that the reason was my loose vagina. Two months ago I met a doctor for my Problem and she suggested me Myotaut serum and told me to use it twice daily for better results, I did the same and within a week I felt drastic increment in sensation and pleasure while sex. Now I never forget to apply it to get better sex every time.

    I had the vaginal problem. My husband was not easily convinced about the myotaut product i tried others and this one is the only one that worked so by this one he is still in shock in how well this worked this a real review I wasn’t sure about the others but super no lie it works fantasic.

  • JenniferLopez

    you can use myotaut for vagina tightening, it’s really work awesome naturally.

    I read the reviews for the dermalmd serum, all the hype and I still hesitated buying DermalMD Tightening Serum. I wish I hadn’t. This stuff is truly amazing. Ladies, you know something is working when your man is stunned at the difference because let’s face it, not all men are exactly observant. Well my guy noticed, BIG TIME!! He kept asking me what I was doing differently. I didn’t tell him but let’s just say, our sex life has improved substantially.

    I am 40 years old… And my viginal lips were very loose.I decided to research the muscles groups, and started doing the pelvic floor exercies I found here,I practiced the exercises morning, noon and night and after a 5 days I started to see a light improvement! At first I was a bit wary and thought that maybe my muscles were just feeling “tight” from exercising them and that it would go back to normal. Although as I continued to exercise the muscle tightness and the sensation started to come back more and more! So i heard about MyoTaut Serum… and husband bought that for me…. I used that serum 2 times daily and also before going have sex. My husband said that he can feel the differences too.. lol:)

    Ladies, whoever said there is no natural way to shrink and tighten vaginal lips lied to you! Don’t have surgery! There’s a natural remedy called myotaut. Yes. Visit Works wonders!

    • Erica

      I want to order this product but I am very scared?

    • LeeBottieri

      I’ve used this product a couple times and so far sex has been SOOO much more pleasurable. I need to see what it does in the longterm.

  • pinkheart

    The on tumblr from the larger “fatter” labias link is really good. Thanks gurl for trying to make us feel normal no matter how we look down there.

    Hey heather! I have never been properly educated on the vagina and the different parts of it….too scared to look at Google images I was wondering if you could explain the different parts? Maybe a diagram would help
