Types of Vaginal Shapes You Need to Know

AllvertaGlobal – The shape of the vagina in every woman can be different. The various forms of the vagina are generally influenced by the size, shape, and color of the vaginal lips or also called the vulva. Although the shape is different, this does not affect the function of the vagina in every woman.

Vaginal shape does not have a certain standard. The shape can be short, long, curved, or inward. The shape of the vagina can change with age, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause.

To see the shape of your vagina, lie down with your legs apart and place a mirror in front of your vagina.

By knowing these parts, you can easily recognize the shape of the vagina. The following are the various forms of the vagina:

1. Curved outer lips

The shape of the vagina with curved outer lips is described as an inverted horseshoe whose ends meet. Usually, the curved outer lips will reveal a bit of the inner lips.

2. Asymmetrical vaginal lips

This vaginal shape is very common in women and is called asymmetrical because one side of the labia minora is longer and thicker than the other.

3. Inner vaginal lips protrude

Women with this vaginal shape usually have labia minora that appear longer and thicker than the labia majora. This condition makes the lips inside the vagina come out slightly past the outer lips, so that part of the labia minora is clearly visible.

4. The outer vaginal lips protrude

In addition to the inner lips, the outer lips can also be longer and thicker so that they cover the entire labia minora. This form of vagina generally has vaginal skin that looks thinner, so the impression is a bit loose.

8. The outer vaginal lips are small and open
