Is my vagina normal?
Thank you for your clinical post and photograph. Your vaginal architecture and anatomy seems completely normal. The concepts and anatomic and physiologic function of the region, the labia majora, minora, the vaginal introitus, vault and cervix are all a necessary part of reproduction also sexual excitement. There are many online sources and descriptions of the anatomy and physiology, but rest assured that the anatomy looks perfectly fine. There certainly has been a tremendous interest recently in perineal aesthetic enhancement of the mons pubis, laser hair removal, labia minora augmentation and reduction, but from the photo you have submitted and at your age you can be perfectly secure in having very normal and functional anatomy.
I hope this information is of some assistance and best of luck.

Your Vulva appears to be well within normal range. This picture does not show the entire area- but many sizes, shapes, colours- are "normal" for genitalia. There is nothing wrong with you, however It is not uncommon for women to have concerns over their Labia appearance or discomfort. If you wish to discuss surgical options, I recommend that you book a consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon in your area. They will examine you and discuss your aesthetic goals to help you plan.
All the best

Is my vagina normal?
Thank you for writing in with your concerns. From your photo (which only shows the lower half of your vulva), everything appears perfectly normal. I can tell you that most guys are just happy to "get in the door" and aren't concerned about appearance, like women are. If you continue to have concerns that prevent you from enjoying your experience with your partner, it would be a good idea to talk with a counsellor as well as a gyn physician who can guide you in your sexual health choices (contraception-wise) and educate you about STDs.

YES - your vagina is normal
You have normal anatomy which will not impact your first sexual encounter in any negative way. Only your self perception of your vagina is interfering. The best I can tell you is that you are completely normal and your partner will be ecstatic to be with you.
Now, if you desire a change to your appearance, then you should consult with a cosmetic gynecologist to explain to them what you want to look different. I can reassure you, though, that the things that are bothersome to you will not bother your partner.
I hope this helps in you being able to relax and enjoy this very special time.
Best of luck,
