The entrance to my vagina seems as if it's being blocked by skin or tissue. Any suggestions? (photos)

thank you for sharing. If you do NOT have a functional problem ( i.e. you can't have sex) then there is nothing wrong. If you are suggesting the blocking is due to what you photo exhibits then this is normal and is your hymen or caruncles of your hymen. This is normal. It is possible the photos are not giving me the full picture and my assessment is wrong.
If you are sexually active and there is not a problem or as long as you are not having symptoms then I would not worry about what you see in the photo

hello. The tissue you see is normal vaginal mucosa and hymen remnants. The vagina is a dynamic and flexible tube that collapses on itself when it has nothing in it. This helps to keep it moist and prevents infections. What you see is completely normal. I hope this answer has been helpful!!!~Dr Poucher
