Q

My vagina lips are huge, and show through tight jeans – and in Ly­cra,

I look ob­scene! Is that nor­mal, and could I have them trimmed? Ginny, Lin­coln

A

Labia vary in size and some women with large labia don’t like how they look, or find they in­ter­fere with ac­tiv­i­ties such as cy­cling or sex. Large labia could sim­ply be the way you are, or might be due to a condition called labial hy­per­tro­phy, which usu­ally af­fects in­ner vagina lips, on one or both sides, mak­ing them long and floppy. Preg­nancy, weight gain or nat­u­ral age changes can make labia grow.

It’s rare for en­larged labia to cause big prob­lems but an op, of­ten un­der lo­cal anaes­thetic, can trim them if re­ally needed. But un­less you have se­vere labial hy­per­tro­phy, you’d need pri­vate care.
