Do you mean that the external genitalia seem large? The labia of someone who is overweight will often be larger or "puffier" than someone who is smaller. It's a good place for fat to accumulate and no way to excercise that particular area.
Please let me know if you have questions.
Yes, the labia are the lips leading to the vagina. There is a larger set - the labia majora - on the outside (and a much smaller set - the labia minora closer inside). They provide a fatty cushion to buffer during sexual intercourse. It is common for women who are overweight to have larger, fattier labia than women who are normal weight or underweight. It isn't anything to be concerned about.
No, it doesn't mean it is infected or swollen that there is any problem. If you lose weight, you will lose some there as well, just as you will lose weight all over your body. It's basically just fatty tissue, no way connected with ovarian cancer, thank goodness.
Absolutely nothing to worry about., just a little extra fat deposit. Just being 50 pounds overweight is a concern for your health since overweight isn't healthy. But the fact that the labia are larger isn't a specific concern.
All the best,
