Question

How do you prevent your vaginal lips from changing color, such as brown? Or is that genetic?

Answer

The color of the vulva (the vaginal lips) will change colors during puberty due to the changes in your hormones. There isn't anything that you can do about it. In very rare instances, a change in skin color on the vulva can indicate a serious problem in your body. Doctors recommend that any noticeable skin color change that lasts for more than two weeks be checked just to make sure it isn't one of the serious problems. Most likely it is normal, but it is better to be safe.
