Not All Vulvas Look the Same
One of our favorite things about Aimee Lou Wood's character, Aimee Gibbs, is that she's not afraid to talk about anything. One of the learnings that comes out from her therapy sessions with Dr. Jean Milburn is that not all vulvas look the same.
According to Dr. Suzy Elneil, a consultant in urogynaecology and uroneurology at University College Hospital, "Vaginas vary in shape, size, and color. Some are small and ovoid [egg-shaped], some are large and cylindrical, and the colors can vary from light pink to a deep brownish red-pink. The important thing is that the vagina functions normally."
Some of us may know this already, but it can never hurt to have a reminder that, much like people, all vaginas and vulvas are completely individual, and no two look alike.
