Is It Normal If My Labia Are Different Sizes?

I’m guessing “Is my vaginal normal?” might be something that you think to yourself on a fairly regular basis. You know what? You’re not alone. It’s a question that many of us with lady bits have wondered on different occasions.

The reasons might vary depending on the situation. For instance, some might wonder whether their vagina is normal based on their period, pubic hair, discharge, smell, or something to do with sex. And I’m just getting started with the number of possibilities. One area that has its own set of questions is the labia, aka the inner and outer folds of the vulva, at either side of the vagina.

One thing you might have wondered is whether it’s normal to have different sized labia. You’ve got a question, I’ve got an answer so hopefully this will be one vagina query you can stop worrying about.

My labia are different from each other. Is that normal?

Have you heard how all vaginas are different? You can think of the same thing in terms of labia, including those on the same body. What’s more, no two sides of the human body are perfectly symmetrical. Consider your face or your boobs. It’s the same with labia. Think about it this way: They’re twins. And we know that even identical twins don’t look exactly the same. So, having different sized labia isn’t anything to stress about.

What if the difference is pretty obvious? I’m self-conscious about it…

Let me reiterate by saying that having different sized labia is normal. I can understand why you might feel self-conscious about it because it’s an area that people tend to be more insecure about. Relax, it’s normal. It doesn’t matter if one side hangs down and the other doesn’t. You know what? I can guarantee that other people/partners wouldn’t even notice. And I’m not just saying that.

Will they grow?

Your labia could change with time and as you get older, especially through things like childbirth and menopause, but it’s very unlikely where they will grow in such a way that they will even themselves out.

What about surgery?

There are all kinds of vagina surgeries available that claim to give you the “perfect” vagina. First of all, there is no such thing as a perfect vagina. All of them are unique and should be loved for that, as cheesy as it sounds. There are labia surgeries but be aware that they involve serious costs and risks. Think long and hard before you would want to go in that direction.

Another more positive (and less expensive) option is to learn to love your body the way it is. There’s likely nothing wrong with your labia getting in the way of masturbating or having sex, so there’s really no medical need to want to change them.
