A genital self-exam is a simple examination you can give yourself to become familiar with what is normal for you and to see if you have any symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
It may be helpful to feel each of these areas with your fingers as you view them, so that you can be aware of any areas of rough skin or bumps.
