Vagina Diagram

The female sexual organs are both internal and external. The clitoris, mons pubis, inner and outer lips, and the vaginal opening are external, and together are known as the vulva.
Like the penis, it contains sensitive nerve endings and becomes erect and filled with blood during stimulation; has no reproductive function.
Mons Pubis
The mons pubis is a rounded pad of tissue that lies on top of the pubic bone and is covered with pubic hair.
Labium Majora
The outer lips on both sides of the vaginal opening and are covered with pubic hair.
Labium Minora
The inner lips are hairless and folded, and lie between the outer lips and run along the edge of the vagina.
A passageway about 3 to 4 inches (8 to 10 centimetres) long; begins with the vaginal opening at the bottom, and connects to the cervix at the top. Also known as the birth canal.
It is about 1 ½ inches long, this leads from the bladder to the exterior, and is the passage through which urine is eliminated. It is just in front of the vagina.
It looks like an upside-down pear and is about the size of your fist; main function is to hold and feed a developing fetus; the cervix is the tiny donut-shaped neck of the uterus that lies at the top of the vagina and is the part a PAP smear is taken from; the inner layer of the uterus called endometrium, which is what is discarded during menstruation.
Fallopian Tubes
Fallopian tubes are very narrow; extend from the top sides of the uterus; the path along which eggs travel from the ovaries.
Ovaries are roughly the size of almonds; sit on each side of the uterus; produce eggs and female sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone.
