I found a popped vein - like a varicose vein - on the inside

This answer was rated:

I found a popped vein - like a varicose vein - on the inside of my left inner labia. There is no pain or discomfort. Is this possibly just a normal part of the aging process? Do I have any need to be alarmed? Is this possibly a result of too frequent and rigorous vibrator use?

Dr. Owen :

Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.

Dr. Owen :

HELLO

Dr. Owen :

this is very normal - because given your age, you have less estrogen and this causes the skin in your labia/ vagina to thin, and hence this will cause blood vessels to be more prominent.

Dr. Owen :

so this is NOTHING to be alarmed about.

Dr. Owen :

I hope this helps

Dr. Owen :

And yes, as your skin around your vaginal/ labia area thins, using irritating items such as a vibrator can cause the vessels to become more prominent.

Dr. Owen :

I wish you well have a good evening.
