Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
yes ,every women have a different appearance of her labia ,some women have extra skin or what is more precisely called extended skin or enlarged labia ,all this is normal if no pain and the problem will be because of cosmetic reason only
it do nothing with orgasm but if accompanied with pain ,yes it do ,because of directing the attention of a brain towards the pain where there is a loose of attention and the intercourse itself will be unconfortable .
concerning your past questions these are some information for your condition
if you have pain at the vaginal opening is called vulvodynia .

VALVUDYNIA is a is chronic pain in the area around the opening of your vagina (vulva) for which there is no identifiable cause. The pain, burning or irritation associated with vulvodynia may make you so uncomfortable that sitting for long periods or having sex becomes unthinkable. The condition can go on for months or years.

If you have vulvodynia, don't let the absence of visible signs or embarrassment about discussing the symptoms keep you from seeking help. Treatment options are available to lessen your pain and discomfort.
some cause include :
-swelling or injury of the nerves around there
-allergies or sensetive skin
-hormonal changes
-past infections
-sexual abuse or traumatic sex
treatments include
-estrogen creams
-medications with antidepressents
-controling relaxing and training to stop spasms and tightness
some advices and tips for you :
>Try cold compresses. Cold compresses placed directly on your external genital area may help lessen pain and itching.
>avoid soaps try only medicated feminine washes from pharmacy
>Soak in a sitz bath. Two to three times a day, sit in comfortable, lukewarm (not hot) or cool water for five to 10 minutes.
>Avoid tightfitting nylon underwear. Tight clothing restricts airflow to your genital area, often leading to increased temperature and moisture that can cause irritation. Wear white, cotton underwear to increase ventilation and dryness. Sleep without underwear at night, if you feel comfortable doing so.
>Avoid hot tubs and soaking in hot baths. Spending time in hot water may lead to discomfort and itching.
>Avoid activities that put pressure on your vulva, such as biking or horseback riding.
Wash gently. Scrubbing the affected area harshly or washing too often can increase irritation. Instead, use plain water to gently clean your vulva with your hand and pat the area dry. After bathing, apply a preservative-free emollient, such as plain petroleum jelly, to create a protective barrier.
>Use lubricants. If you're sexually active, apply a lubricant before engaging in sexual intercourse.
>Try an antihistamine at bedtime. This may help reduce itching and help you rest better.
