Do I look normal?
Normal has more to do with how you feel rather than how you look. Just like a person's nose or ears there is always differences in appearances noted with genitalia. I wouldn't worry unless you are having symptom - (pelvic pressure, laxity, decreased sensation with sex, bladder leakage, difficulty with bowel movements) And I wouldn't obsess too much as too much worry will cause symptoms (anxiety, insecurity, self doubt etc...)
Hello selfhelpist08,Thank you for sharing your question and photo. There is a wide range of "normal" when it comes to the vagina/vaginal tissue. From the photo other than some element of a rectocele all appears "normal". The MOST important consideration when it comes to these issues is whether or not you are having any problems. If the answer is no then nothing needs to be addressed. If not broken no need to fix. Be well.
Is my vagina normal?
Your vagina certainly is completely normal. All vaginas feel slightly lumpy, so please do not be concerned by that. Based on your photo, it does appear as though you have a small rectocele (rectal prolapse). This is certainly not unusual. Symptoms of a rectocele can be rectal pressure, constipation, or difficulty passing stool. If these are symptoms that bother you I would recommend you follow up with your gynocologist, but again this is very common to see. Cheers!
