Have you ever taken a look at your vagina and wondered if what it reflects is normal? This blog takes you through some of the common types of vaginas, including tulip, curtain shaped, puffy shaped, and tucked-in vaginas. You can observe your vagina at a closer angle but still wonder if the reflection is normal. When it comes to the genitalia, there is no such thing as normal or abnormal. Everything that concerns the vagina, from the smell, color, and shape, varies from one woman to another. There are numerous types of vaginas that differ in shape and size. In addition, the general shape of the vulva depends on the clitoris and labia size. As much as the vagina is essential, some women barely like the shape of their vagina. It is also critical to know that women have different and unique vaginas. What is a Vagina The vagina is generally the internal canal in the female body. It is also known as the birth canal. The vulva is the exterior structure surrounding the vaginal opening. The vulva is what makes women wonder what their birth canal looks like. The labia majora are the outer lips of the vagina, while the labia minora are the inner lips. The tissue that covers the pubic bone is known as the mons pubis. This is the part that represents the vulva. Vulvas are differentiated depending on their general appearance. The Different Types of Vaginas While there are different sizes and shapes of a vagina for different women, the bikini waxer reveals five common types of vaginas. The focus is mainly on the outer region. This includes the labia majora and labia minora, the outer and inner lips. Below are some of the types of vaginas; Curtain Shaped Vagina The curtain shape is one of the common vagina types in women. The labia minora is visible and positioned between the outer lips (labia majora). For many ladies, this vagina seems abnormal to them. Rarest Tucked-in Vagina The rarest tucked-in vagina is also referred to as barbie. This is typically the opposite of the curtain-shaped vagina. The rarest tucked-in vagina comes with a completely concealed labia minora. Unlike the curtain-shaped vagina, there is no complete view of the labia minora. Contrary to what most women think, this is the rarest type of vagina. However, it seems to be one of the favorite types of vaginas. Today, most women prefer everything in their vagina tucked in from any view. The rarest tucked-in vagina is one type to consider to prevent internal view. Tulip Vagina The tulip vagina is also one of the common shapes. Unlike the rarest tucked-in vagina, the tulip shape has a slightly visible labia minora between the outer lips (labia majora). This type is incredible since no one can view inside your vagina unless it is opened up. Horseshoe Vagina Women with horseshoe vaginas have wider openings at the top of the vulva. The inner lips (labia minora) are slightly revealed and seen from the labia majora. This vagina comes with a unique shape, completely different from the others. Also, the horseshoe vagina comes with a labia majora that perfectly closes as it moves to the bottom of the vulva. From the name, this vagina resembles a horseshoe shape. Some women do not like this shape and go for change through labiaplasty. Puffy Shaped Vagina This vagina has a similar view to the tucked-in vagina, but its lips are different. The labia of the puffy-shaped vagina are positioned on the lower part of the vulva (on the pubic bone). Unlike other vulva types, the puffy-shaped vagina has a protruding shape around the region. They come in different styles, either thin and loose or full and puffed up. Also, the labia minora (inner lips) is tucked away, giving it a beautiful view. The hanging of the lips in the puffy-shaped vagina results form body weight and a woman’s age. Inside the Vagina The vagina is a long tube that can contract and expand. Most studies show that the vagina often narrows towards its opening and widens towards the cervix. However, the size and shape of the vagina can be affected by childbirth due to muscular expansion. The vagina can resume the pre-birth size or might slightly remain wide. Other Ways that the Vaginal Area is Unique Your vaginal region varies in different ways apart from the appearance of the labia. Clitoris Clitoris is a pearl size organ situated between the labia minora. Like the vagina, different clitorises depend on the size and shape. Pubic Hair Pubic hair often develops due to the rise of testosterone levels experienced during puberty. It develops depending on the individual and hormones. You can have thin, thick, or little hair. However, some tend to grow hair on the public bone only. Discharge Vaginal discharges are normal, and they are caused by; Sexual arousal (watery and thick clear)Vaginal lubrication (milky and white)The beginning of your period (blushed deep pink)Irregular menstruation (brown or dried red) Sometimes discharge changes in texture and color, which signify different conditions. Visit your doctor if you experience the following abnormal discharge; Gray or cloudyFoul odorFrothy Smell Vaginas come with a slight odor. However, the smell varies depending on the hormones and diet. Consider seeing consulting with your doctor if you have a lingering odor or when experiencing symptoms like burning or itching.
