Vaginal bleaching (which technically should be called vulval bleaching, as the procedure is applied to the vulva, not the vagina) is a procedure that may involve using topical creams, chemical peels, or laser treatments to lighten the skin of the vulva. It can result in vaginal burns, scarring and pain while having sex.
If you’ve considered vaginal bleaching, please know that there’s no need to change your skin to fit an unrealistic expectation. It’s natural for vulvas to be darker. If you feel uncomfortable about yours, ask yourself why. Perhaps it is because you haven’t seen a body that’s similar to yours? (In which case, know that it’s unfair to compare yourself to other people and images— we’re all wonderfully different and that’s a great thing.) Or maybe someone has said something which has made you question your body? (In which case, that was mean and insensitive of them. It is not your responsibility to change your body to find acceptance from critical people).
