Your nether regions are sort of like a cavern of many wonders, which means you've probably had your fair share of questions about it over the years. Ideally, as a woman, you'd know your own body pretty well. But as you already know, that's not always the case. For example, your labia are with you every day, all day, but how much do you actually know about them? Do you know the truth about your lady lips, or are you still believing myths about the labia that you've gathered throughout the years? Because your vagina is such an important part of your every day life, it's important to distinguish between the truths and the myths about your number one gal pal.
If you're unsure of what exactly your labia's all about, or concerned about it in general, Dr. Lauren Streicher, associate clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s medical school, noted that you're not alone. "When I first went into practice in the '90s, I can’t think of anyone who came in and said, 'I’m concerned about my labia,'" Streicher told Refinery 29. Nowadays, with the rise in labiaplasty, and the unrealistic expectations set forward for women, Streicher said she can barely go a week without a patient asking if her labia is normal. Your labia is an important part of your body, so rather than believing those myths you've been hearing, take a scroll through the following myths about your labia that you can stop believing, and stop worrying about all together.
