I am very concerned about the pigmentation of my vagina. I am light-skinned all over, but I have brown discolored labia. The problem affects outer labia as well as the bottom portion of my inner labia, and I have considered skin bleaching or other steps to correct this, but I am afraid of irritating the skin which is very sensitive. The problem has been there for as long as I can remember, and none of my friends have experienced something similar as all of them have pretty pink lips. I am not concerned about the size of my labia as I know that they are within normal range. It is just the dark and uneven color that I have an issue with.
What many people out there do not know, is that in addition to normal variations in labia shape and size, there is a huge amount of variety in labia colors, all of which are normal. There are, for example, many women with darker labia minora (inner lips) and lighter labia majoria (outer lips), and vice versa. Variations in the color of the labia are often most pronounced in persons of color, but variations are also seen in Caucasian women.I urge you not to use bleaching agents or other chemicals on your most sensitive and intimate of regions. This can cause irreparable damage to your skin, and even affect the sensitivity of the area when it comes to sexual intercourse.
