I'm not sure why you'd call all that uncomfortable while asking your Gynae? You're supposed to be open to your doctor about your problems as well as concerns no matter which one is it.... why the approach needs to be any different than what would be for a cardiologist. Owing to the location you mentioned I assume you have some social dogmas to have had been shy while discussing gynaecological health but it isn't supposed to be that way.

Vagina lips are not usually of different size but some may experience inflammation due to infection or friction (during the excessive walk, climbing etc. ) that needs to take care of with rest and medication. There shouldn't be a vagina smell ideally unless there's some hygiene issue. Often this smells serve as an indication of problems. Also, waxing isn't something a gynaecologist will answer you. If you happen to ask that to the lady I go to - you'll be possibly told "It's a clinic and not a waxing parlour" - she has a weird cocky attitude even to her normal patients. Lastly, nowadays you don't ask these petty questions to anyone, Google eased that up for you. Simply type and read the numerous blogs and you'll be able to decide for yourself.
