Tongue like thing sticking out under labia

Resolved Question:

My girlfriend has a problem with her vagina. She has told me that there is a tongue-like thing sticking out under her labia and somewhat connecting to her vulva.
It may be a remnant of her hymen but she doesn't believe it is. It bothers her at times , not by the way it looks but by the way it feels. She says it bothers her by feeling like her vulva has a piece of hair in it.
It is small in size , about a centimeter long and barely wide.
And to mention , she only had one sex experience 4 years ago.

Thanks for writing at with your health concern.

The possibility is that it could be a remnant of the hymen. More likely it could be a vaginal skin tag. These are small fleshy bits of tissue that can feel the way you describe.

A rare possibility is genital warts.

Sometimes, a small cyst inside the labial folds also can present in the same way.

As you can very well realize, you need to consult a gynecologist, and have a proper internal check up - per vaginum and per speculum to know the exact entity.

It would also help me if can upload a snap and send it across to me, so that I can opine more specifically.

All the best.
Do feel free to discuss this further.
Take care.

Thanks for your reply i uploaded a snap of her vagina.
I want you to tell me what is it and tell me if its dangours or normal.

Thanks again.

It does not look dangerous at all.
To me, it looks like a hymenal skin tag / vaginal skin tag.
Please get this diagnosis confirmed by a professional after proper examination and palpation.
Take care.
