Quote:That is the conclusion of the largest study ever conducted on vulvas and their dimensions in a bid to identify what other medical papers mean when they refer to 'normal' vulvas.
Swiss researchers measured the inner and outer labia, clitoris, vaginal opening and perineum of 650 white women between the ages of 15 and 84.
There was so much variation in every category that they concluded even offering an 'average' would woefully misrepresent most women.
The findings have been hailed as necessary assurance for women amid a steady rise in the rate of labiaplasties - surgical operations on the female genitalia, usually to reduce the size of the labia.
Speaking to DailyMail.com, gynecologist Dr Kenneth Levey, MD of Maiden Lane Medical, who was not involved in the study, said any attempt to identify a 'normal average' vagina is 'concerning', and warned that the boom in labiaplasties could have grave ramifications for generations to come.
