Whenever I have my annual gynaecological examination, my doctor tell me my vagina’s pink and healthy. Recently, however, I looked at it myself with a mirror and noticed that my inner labia (lips) and the vaginal opening itself are actually purple.

A chronic purple colour could be caused by yeast infection or chronic irritation of the vulva. Since it appears you have no other symptoms, you can either wait until your next gynaecological appointment, or schedule one now if you need reassurance.
