Aunt Vadge: why is my vagina suddenly black?

Aunt Vadge, I want to ask why is my vagina black suddenly?

Hi Worried,

You need to go and see a doctor! A black vagina or vulva is not a good sign. Please make an appointment immediately. Black tissue can mean blood supply has been damaged, or you’ve been severely bruised, but you need to be examined to see what’s going on.
Best,
Aunt Vadge
