The vagina connects with the uterus , or womb, at the cervix. The corpora cavernosa are made of cavernous erectile tissue and diverge and follow the pubic rami on each side, forming the crura. Careful asepsis of the perineal and vulvar area including the clitoral fossa with a mild disinfectant before any invasive procedures are performed minimizes the risk of introducing potential pathogens into the uterus. Unless the egg is fertilized by a sperm while in the fallopian tube, the egg dries up and leaves the body about 2 weeks later through the uterus — this is menstruation. During ovulation , an ovary releases an egg. Depending on the female, the labia minora can be many different shapes, sizes, and colors. As already mentioned, the clitoris of females is homologous to the male penis.
It has the capability to function intimately with nearly every other body system for the purpose of reproduction. A germinal layer coats the entire ovary, made of cuboidal epithelial cells. Lymphatic drainage of the cervix is complex. Surgery should be done when the young woman is able to use a dilator to keep the new vagina open. The nerve supply and lymphatic drainage of the uterus are complex. The sphincter urethrae and the transverse peroneus are innervated by perineal branches of the pudendal nerve.
The mucus that has formed a plug in the cervix loosens, and with amniotic fluid, comes out through the vagina when the mother's water breaks. The vaginal opening is visible from the outside but it is protected by the labia when a woman stands and during most activities. During puberty, your ovaries start to release an egg each month. These tissues dilate during childbirth, allowing the fetus to be born. The stimulation of the clitoral nerve endings is responsible for the majority of sexual pleasure and sensation in the female body.
