Notice the figure below that shows the passage from adolescent to adult woman. Some of the changes in this passage are breast enlargement and the appearance of pubic hair and underarm hair. These are some of the secondary female sexual characteristics.

Before we talk about the interior of the female body, let's talk about the outside, through which the woman receives stimuli and relates to the environment.

For women, knowing their body is critical to helping keep it healthy. O gynecologist (a doctor who specializes in female reproductive organs) can answer questions if you notice any changes that cause strangeness.

Venus or pubis mound

It is the triangular area above the vulva and in which hair appears from puberty.


In this region are the small and large lips, which are very sensitive skin folds. Between the small lips there is the clitorisIt is a tiny structure about the size of a pea that usually causes great feelings of pleasure when stimulated.

Opening of the vagina

The opening of the vagina leads to the internal sex organs. This opening is partially blocked in most virgin girls by a thin membrane called the hymen, which is usually ruptured at first sexual intercourse with penile penetration. The hymen has an opening through which menstrual blood exits.


The urethral orifice is where the urine exits; It does not lead to any internal sexual organ.


The anus is the hole through which the feces come out; It is the outlet of the digestive tract. It also has no connection with internal sexual organs.


Between the anus and the vulva, at the entrance to the vagina, there is a region called the perineum. In man, the perineum is located between the scrotum and the anus.

At birth, it is often necessary to make a small cut in the perineum so that the baby's head does not tear (cut) the muscles in that region. This is important to protect the mother as extensive perineum injuries will cause her to suffer from “bladder drop” in the future and loss of ability to control urine retention. After the baby is born, the doctor sutures (stitches with thread and surgical needle) the perineum. The procedure is done under local anesthesia.
