What Labia Colors Mean
Dr. Lisa Masterson: Yes, but a lot of women want to change the color of their labia. If you don’t know what the labia is, all women should get in touch with their bodies and know what their body parts are, so that you can discuss this with your doctor. But the labia are the lips of the vagina, so the outer fold of the vagina, there's a labia minora and a labia majora, so it's a large outside lips, and the minora are the smaller lips inside that lead right into the vaginal canal, so that’s the anatomy.
Now, knowing the anatomy, what happens is, is sometimes as we age, the labia color changes. So basically, what you can have is for normal labia, you can have a pink to brown, depending on the ethnicity of the person. So pink to brown is normal.
Then you can also get purple, purple can be sometimes after pregnancy or with varicose veins, sort of a deeper color from the hormones and things like that happen in pregnancy.
So after that a lot of people will also experience a deeper wine to amber color, again, hormones can affect this from pregnancy. It can also sometimes from many traumas that’s happened down there, it’ll get a deep purple color. And then another color that we have could be bright red, so this could be the flush from having sex, so the sexual intercourse, flesh that we call it, and that’s feeling up with blood vessels or it could be a sign of infection, like bacterial vaginosis.
White and actually anyone can have this color white, it can actually be a sign of dermatitis, a vulvar dermatitis or skin inflammation called Lichen sclerosis. Again, if all of a sudden your skins turns bright white down there, and I think women would go to their doctors about it, you're going to get that diagnosed and potentially biopsied.
Then the last color is grey, and women don’t know that they actual age down there, as well as they age everywhere else. And this is why a lot of sometimes women will want to die that their labia minor and majora. But, the skin, the vulvar skin, the labia skin is very sensitive. And there is one product out in the market called Pink Button, and you can just imagine what this is probably—
Dr. Travis Stork: My New Pink Button.
Dr. Lisa Masterson: My New Pink Button, and these are button names like Marilyn and Ginger trying to make it more exciting. But because actually this product has very natural dyes in them, but even a natural dyes are very acidic. And what you do with this is you put the dye in here and you add some water to it, and you just paint it on with these little brushes. But the dyes could be very acidic and very irritating. The thing to know here is as we age, and we go through different phases of our lives, from pregnancy to getting old, to menopause, we change down there as well.
