Girlfriend - - GF FEELS -

Even if you’re not sex­u­ally ac­tive, your vagina can still de­velop dif­fer­ent in­fec­tions or con­di­tions, so it’s im­por­tant to keep an eye on it to spot any­thing ab­nor­mal. If you no­tice any of the be­low symp­toms, es­pe­cially if they’re not go­ing away, have a chat to your

GP. Don’t be shy… they’ve heard it all be­fore!

• Swelling of the in­ner or

outer lips
