What are normal healthy vaginal characteristics and forms?


1. Vulva

The vulva is a radiology organ on the outside of the vagina that can be seen with the naked eye. The vulva includes Mons pubis (pubic genitals), labia majora (outer lip), labia minora (inner lips), clitoral, and external openings of the urethra and vagina.

We are often confused between the vulva and the vagina. The Vagina, a.k.a. Path of birth is 8 centimeters long, inside the body. Only the vaginal opening (introitus) you can see from the outside.

The normal vaginal wall is reddish-brown (can be bright pink or tanned) and has folds or wrinkles. The vulva can have wrinkles, and this is a normal thing. In fact, the wrinkles on the vulva signify elasticity, so don't feel this makes you feel old or abnormal.

Abnormal: If the vulva is painful or there is a strange lump like vaginal warts — caused by viruses transmitted by sexual intercourse.

2. Labia

Labia is the most readily visible part of your vulva — the lid's petal is split into two parts in the public Mons. These petals are called labia majora, or often also referred to as "vaginal lips". If you open your labia majora, it will look smaller petals in it, on either side of your vaginal opening.

Many people believe that the lips of both labia should have a certain length, but this is not true. In more than half of women, the lips of the labia minora can be longer and stand out from the labia majora. Sometimes, the two pairs of labia can be long, thick, or even thin. Sometimes, the skin color of the labia can resemble the skin tone, darker, or brighter. Some labia can have one side longer than the other. All this is a variety of normal vaginal variations.

That is not normal: discolored labia skin and have white patches can be a sign of the disease lichen sclerosus, which is commonly found in women of menopause age. Itchy, hot, and/or bleeding from the skin of the vulva can also be a sign of health problems — from skin conditions to genital diseases.

3. The clitoral

Right at the top, at which end of the labia minora meet, is clitoral. The skin sheets they meet, which cover a portion of the external clitoral, are referred to as the clitoral hood. According to the layman's assumption, the clitoral is a pink soft button, such as an eraser at the end of the pencil. But in reality, most of the clitoral (three quarters) are actually inside your body.

In general, the outside-looking clitoral has a size of 0.5 cm to 1.3 cm. However, if your clitoral is larger than the ' standard ', don't worry. Your Vagina is still classified as normal, let alone the size of the clitoral can still grow when the tissue gets stimulation. The outermost of the clitoral can also be smaller, even hidden. Additionally, the clitoral in some women can also have a flap of looted skin over the clitoral area. Having a hidden clitoral doesn't mean you don't have it at all, or it can't cause stimulation. All of these things are normal.

Abnormal: If the clitoral area is painful or sore, which can be associated with overstimulation during sex or masturbation, or because of a buildup of smegma (white crust from urine deposits, oil, and dead skin cells — not spread and harmful, also Not the cause of genitalia cancer) behind your clitoral hood. Smegma can you clean enough with water.

Additionally, also note whether there is an itching sensation, which can signify a yeast infection.

4. Vaginal discharge

Although many of us consider whiteness as abnormal, in fact, vaginal fluid is a natural part of the automatic cleansing mechanism performed by a healthy vagina.

Reasonable vaginal discharge has a characteristic of light or transparent color and a liquid, thick, and sticky white milk, or a paste-like texture. In addition, the healthy vaginal discharge does not smell foul, does not contain blood and/or bleeding, and does not look like curd. Normal vaginal fluid is also not accompanied by itching.

Abnormal: The vaginal discharge that you should beware is the liquid that clumping gray, yellow, or greenish, which is followed by a stinging stench and can be accompanied by itching. This condition can signify sexually transmitted infections, such as trichomoniasis or bacterial vaginosis. A vaginal discharge that looks like curd can mean a vaginal yeast infection.

5. Vagina

The so-called vagina is actually a small opening under the urethra and your clitoral. Although only very few vaginae can be seen, if you put a finger into it, you will feel all sorts of curves, such as "Hills", and "valleys". This lump is called the vaginal rugae and is a normal thing — which helps the vagina extend itself during sex.

What distinguishes the vaginal rugae with lumps that show unhealthy vagina requires medical attention, is the pain, the coarse texture, the high lump, which signifies the lump is genital warts.

On the back of your vagina is the cervix, which looks like a small doughnut with a very small hole right in the center, called an ostium. You may notice a hanging polyp (flesh growing) that is prominent through the ostium. These polyps bleed easily but do not need to be lifted unless you annoy you.

The cervix may have a fluid-filled lump that looks like a star. It is harmless, called the Nabothian cyst. Nabothian cysts are caused by the mucous gland manufacturers of the uterus. These cysts can come and go, some are lasting. These cysts do not require treatment.

Also, notice your vaginal wall. In a healthy vagina, the condition of the wall may vary — dry until very wet. The Vagina tends to dry before women reach puberty, during lactation, and after menopause, as well as before and shortly after menstruation. The vaginal wall ecosystem will become wetter during ovulation, during pregnancy, and during sexual stimuli.

That is not normal: pain in the vagina is not normal, even after sexual intercourse. If regular sex makes you feel pain or pain, or if you experience pain in the vagina that is not related to any activity, talk to a doctor.
