Dear Le Snuggle,

"My husband just told me during a discussion over something else that he thinks my vagina is overly large. What is considered normal? I just thought age and a few kids later would just naturally make intercourse feel differently.



I feel that we communicate well, but I am trying not to be upset, and I definitely do not want to feel self-conscious when we are intimate."

Thank you for reaching out to us. We are happy that you and your husband communicate well, as you will need to have ongoing discussions about sexual dysfunction and solutions to the problems you are experiencing. You both deserve a healthy and satisfying sexual relationship.




To answer your question: 

According to Medical News Today,  

A woman’s vagina is a sex organ as well as part of the birth canal. Just as women can have different sized breasts, hands, and feet, the size and depth of vaginas can also vary.

According to one study, the average depth of a vagina is about 3.77 inches, which is 9.6 centimeters (cm).  Other sources suggest that the average range of size may be about 3 to 7 inches (approximately 7.6-17.7cm).

Below are a few suggestions for helping to combat your issue naturally (note: we are not giving any medical advice, just sharing educational articles and statistics for informational purposes only).

See your gynecologist for an examination to determine if there have been any changes since your last visit.

Further, have an honest discussion about your problem and ask for suggestions.

We would like you to consider all options including ours, before you consider more drastic measures. Below we have listed a few other recommendations:

Professional counseling and evaluation prior to considering a permanent alteration would be highly recommended for you and your husband.

Professionals will help you determine if you are mutually in agreement regarding FGCS (female genital cosmetic surgery).

Do your homework.

Post-surgical complications are possible for an elective and controversial surgery. Know the possible side effects.

Know your expert and the facility you choose should you decide on FGCS.

Your own gynecologist knows your medical history, as well as any complicating factors that would prevent a positive outcome from cosmetic surgery.

Once you have accomplished your research, you are ready to make an informed decision.
