what does a healthy labia minora look like?

Hi fellow vp-ers!

Last night I took a picture of Ms. Meowingthon (I really like the nickname I give my vagina) and I guess I freaked myself out because I noticed all these bumps of my labia minora and they are on both of them. So I searched and I searched and I even woke up my husband to ask if it were normal and he said that the bumps pretty much look like glands and he noticed them before. Anyways, I was unhappy with the with the google image search and I wanted to ask all of you what does your labia minora look like? Any images would be great. I don't know if it is Frodyce's spots or something worse. I'm kinda freaking myself out right now. But I pretty much decided to go to the doctor because I need to get a pap done and all that jazz.

sorry if I sound like I'm ranting I'm just a little nervous and jittery.

and thanks for you help ahead of time.

it might help/reassure your mind to look at the everyday bodies project because there is a large number of vulva submissions

Vulvas in general are lumpy-bumpy parts of the body. My inner labia are definitely a little textured, particularly on the inside leading towards my vagina. Definitely mention it to your doctor if it would ease your mind; I remember last year I had just treated a YI and my labia were looking extra-bumpy and I pretty much flipped out. Went and showed my doctor, and she said it looked like either residual irritation from the YI or just the normal texture of my labia. So you're totally not alone in this concern. :)

Sounds like sebaceous glands, and they're totally normal. We affectionately refer to them as vulval chicken skin around here. :)

I have the exact same thing! First time I ever noticed it was also the first time i got a YI so it freaked me out a little, but every doctor who's seen me down there says it's normal
