I’m 19 and I hate my labia so much. They have made me so insecure and caused so much discomfort it’s unreal I also hate my anus it’s so weird and puffed up and everything down there is so dark and has so much excess skin I hate it. Please help I’m ready to cut everything off myself I’m so self conscious about it and I feel like a freak.
I’m so sorry that you have experienced so much discomfort as a result of your labia.
Please don’t do anything drastic like trying to cut your labia off – not only could you get a nasty infection, but you may also cut a blood vessel which can lead to lots of blood and a trip to the emergency ward.
I can assure you that at an aesthetic level, you look healthy and normal. There are ways to reduce the physical discomfort caused by your labia. Read my reply to this post for some useful tips.
The biggest challenge that you will have to overcome is accepting your labia as they are. This is easier said than done, and will require you to work through your insecurities. Making this submission was the first important step in that journey. This post by Coach Jane will also help.
With regard to your anus, it looks like you may have had hemorrhoids (swollen veins, similar to varicose veins) at some point in the past. These are very common, and three quarters of all adults experience them at some point. They are also usually not a major medical concern, and if they cause any physical discomfort, they can be removed through a relatively minor procedure.
