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

"I would like to see a gynecologist before starting college but I don't know how to ask my mom without her assuming I'm having sex. Also, if the doctor asks me about having sex, even though I do, is it okay to lie and say I don't? I just don't feel comfortable telling anyone something so private. No matter how comfortable I am with the doctor." -Anonymous

"I just turned 18 and got a postcard from my regular doctor saying I need to get my 18 yr old physical which includes a pelvic exam and pap smear. I go to a pediatrics doctor and think it would be very embarrassing and uncomfortable with this doctor for one because he is male and I've known him almost my whole life. Do you give appointments for these exams to teens you don't see regularly and if so how much do they cost. Thanks!" -Anonymous, Iowa City

"I am 20 years old and have been trying to use a tampon for awhile now with no success. I took a mirror and saw that my vagina is very small; I could hardly fit anything larger than a Q-tip in there, though the Q-tip slid in just fine. Should I be worried? I am not sexually active. "-Anonymous, IL

"Is it ok, to have an annual pap smear, like a day or so after your menstrual period?"-Tina, Minneapolis, MN
