"Is my inner labia supposed to stick out under the outer labia?"

Anatomy can very quite a bit from person to person and just like with any other body part, one person's labia can differ from another's. Some women have long inner labia that protrude from the outer labia and some women have short inner labia that are concealed completely by the outer labia. All of these variations are normal. In rare cases women will report pain during exercise or sex when their inner labia are large, but in most circumstances the size of the inner labia makes no difference at all. If you are concerned about your own anatomy talk to your health care provider. -Emma
