Hope you & your dear ones are doing fine.
I would like to put forth few features / symptoms to differentiate normal from pathological labial hypertrophy/ vaginal wall enlargement.
1. If wall prolapse is painful/ tender, associated with excessive vaginal discharge, especially yellow or greenish color, foul smelling & with itching. If swelling increases after sexual exposure . Around the time of periods discharge increases with all above features. Associated mild feverish feeling around periods, cramps in lower abdomen before periods. All these suggest that it could be infection in vagina , following sexual exposure. You need to meet your gynecologist & use medications for yourself & for your partner.
2. If the lips of vagina are not not tender & free of the above mentioned symptoms, then this could be just hereditary as you mentioned. Then it needs no treatment.
Hope I have clarified your query, do write back if any more queries & for your feedback All the best
