What you don’t know about your vulva



There’s a lot to your vulva than you’ve ever wondered. They’re the ever so faithful gatekeepers to your Lady V, but haven’t we always overlooked on them? Also, your vulva does a lot to how you look down there. Guilty!


Your vulva isn’t the same as your vagina

To begin with, your vulva does not equal to your vagina at all. Your vulva is the external part of the female genital anatomy which comprises of the labia (majora and minora), the opening to the vagina and urethra, and the clitoris, mons pubis, and anus.

Vulvas come in different shapes, sizes and colours

No two vulvas are the same. Vulvas come in different shapes, sizes and colours. There’s no such thing as a ‘perfect’ vulva. Shapes colour and sizes differ even for the two sides of a single lady (that colourful..yeah!)

Your vulva might go on a makeover trip after pregnancy

How can you expect your Miss V to be evergreen and perfect after it has pushed down an entire human being? As much as you would want your sweet lips to remain the same, they do change. But the good thing is, this resolves after childbirth but sometimes minor changes might persist. Well, you can only pray!


Thongs – they’re sexy but they’re not too healthy

Tiny synthetic laces may look sexy but your Miss V isn’t too fond of them. Underwears with a cotton lining allow your friend to breathe, while tight lacy thongs can be irritating and uncomfortable.

Hair removal down there, never had a ‘best way’

Shall we or shall we not? No answer to this question is ever perfect. Shaving and getting done with all the grizzly might seem all great and smooth but that after burn and occasional infection never leaves your back.

Ladies you might want to consider other options for your smooth Lady V but every product comes in with their own pros and cons. To begin with, over-the-counter hair removal creams work well if used correctly and it areas it is meant to be used.
