The female internal and external genitalia are used for reproduction and for pleasure.
You have 5 internal sexual organs:
These are a woman’s main reproductive organs. They produce female hormones and ova (eggs).
- Fallopian tubes
Elles relient les ovaires à l’utérus, et créent un corridor par lequel l’ovule descend dans l’utérus.
The uterus connects all the female sex organs. That’s where the fetus develops when a woman gets pregnant.
The cervix, located at the bottom of the uterus, is part of a woman’s reproductive system. It connects the uterus to the vagina.
The vagina is where the penis is inserted during sexual intercourse (penetration) and semen is discharged (ejaculation). Menstrual blood flows through the vagina, and babies also exit through the vagina during childbirth.
You also have 6 external sexual organs:
This is made up of the labia majora and labia minora, which surround the clitoris, the urinary meatus (the little hole you urinate out of), and the vaginal entrance.
This is located near the top of your vulva. You can see it if you pull the labia minora slightly apart. The clitoris extends inside your vagina via 2 branches that fill with blood. The role of the clitoris is to create arousal and pleasure for a woman; it’s stimulated by touching.
- Labia majora
The labia majora are 2 folds of skin that cover the vulva. They continue forward to the pubis and back to the perineum, which is the area between the vagina and anus.
- Labia minora
These are 2 folds of skin inside the labia majora. They may also stick out beyond the labia majora. The labia minora form a cap that surrounds the clitoris. Like the clitoris, they can create arousal and pleasure; they’re stimulated by touching.
The pubis is a bony area between the bottom of your abdomen and your sex organs. This is where hair grows during puberty.
- Pelvic Floor
The pelvic floor is a set of muscles, tissues, and ligaments under your pelvis. It supports the genitals.
The human body is a complex structure. A woman’s genitals can sometimes be hard to define and tell apart. You might want to lock yourself in the bathroom and look at your genitals with a mirror. By looking at your body, you’ll learn to understand it better.
