Group 4
Vulva or Pudendum
- Refers to the external genital
organs of the female

- All surfaces are lined by a moist

stratified squamous epithelium
except the mons pubis and labia
Mons pubis/ Mons
The rounded prominence caused by a
pad of adipose tissue lying over the
symphysis pubis in the female.
It serves as a cushion between the
female and her partner during sexual
intercourse preventing injury to the
underlying bone.
 It is lined by dry epidermis with usually
a covering of genital hairs.
Mons pubis/ Mons
It also contains sebaceous and sweat
glands. Some of the latter form a
specialized type of gland called the
apocrine glands. These glands release a
secretion with a characteristic smell
that increases sexual attraction.
Labia Majora
The labia majora (literally "larger lips")
are bilateral folds of skin with
underlying fat extending backwards
from the mons pubis. Posteriorly, they
merge into the perineum in front of the
anus. Their outer surface becomes
covered with hair at puberty. But the
inner surface remains smooth,
moistened by the secretions from the
sebaceous and other glands deep
Labia Minora
The labia minora are delicate flaps of
soft skin which lie within the labia
majora. They may be of different sizes
in different women and if large enough,
may protrude from between the labia
majora. Their inner surfaces remain in
contact with each other. Anteriorly, they
unite to enclose the clitoris between
them, forming the prepuce and
frenulum. The labia minora contains no
The clitoris is present in the upper part
of the vestibule at the point where the
two labia minor meet. It is a small
cylindrical structure homologous to the
penis in males. Like the male penis, it
also has a glans, a prepuce and two
corpora cavernosa which are attached
to the pubic bones. The corpora
constitute the body of the clitoris and
end as the glans clitoridis.
*prepuce clitoris - The loose fold of skin
covering the glans clitoris which is
formed by the juncture of the labia
*glans clitoridis - The small central
column or papilla of highly sensitive
erectile tissue (corpora cavernosa),
which will enlarge during sexual arousal
due to an Autonomic NS reflex; it is
situated at the anterior apex of the
Vulval Vestibule
The vulval vestibule is the space
between the labia minora. It has the
openings of the urethra, vagina, and
ducts of the greater vestibular glands.
The external urethral orifice is posterior
to the clitoris. The vaginal orifice,
immediately posterior to the urethral
orifice, varies with the condition of the
The labia minora join the labia majora
in their posterior extent and may be
united by a transverse fold known as
the frenulum of the labia, or fourchette
or frenulum labiorum pudendi.
External urethral
The opening to the urethra which is
located within the vestibule of the
vulva, posterior to the clitoris and
anterior to the opening of the vagina
It is the outlet for urine from the urinary
Vaginal orifice and
Vaginal orifice is the opening of the
The hymen is a thin membrane that
partially covers the vaginal opening. If the
hymen is extensive and is still present at
first intercourse, it may be broken or
stretched as the penis enters the vagina
and some bleeding and pain may occur,
although more typically its presence is
unnoticed. The presence or absence of a

cutaneous area lying between the
vaginal orifice in front and the anus
Bartholin's glands/ Greater
vestibular glands/
vulvovaginal glands
Although the Bartholin's glands were
first described by the Danish anatomist
Caspar Bartholin the Younger (1655–
1738), some sources mistakenly ascribe
their discovery to his grandfather,
theologian and anatomist Caspar
Bartholin the Elder (1585–1629).
Bartholin's glands/ Greater
vestibular glands/
vulvovaginal glands
Either of two compound tubuloalveolar
mucus-secreting glands situated in the
lateral walls on each side of the
vestibule of the vagina
They secrete mucus to provide vaginal
lubrication. Bartholin's glands secrete
relatively minute amounts (one or two
drops) of fluid just before a woman
Skene's glands/
Paraurethral glands
Named after physician who first
described them, Alexander Skene
They drain into the urethra and near
the urethral opening. These glands are
surrounded with tissue, which includes
the part of the clitoris that reaches up
inside the vagina and swells with blood
during sexual arousal.
