In general, these relate only to the knowledge of the external genitalia, and the ones that are hidden from view, is a mystery. However, be aware of your device should be every woman.
Female genital organs perform two important functions. Outdoor responsible for sexual arousal and pleasure, and the internal sex organs are responsible for the conception

and child bearing.
Female genital organs
As noted above, female genital organs consist of two sections. The first department to include internal sex organs: the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix and vagina. The second department include the vulva, which includes large and small labia, clitoris, hymen and vestibule.
Labia or shameful lips are folds of skin containing fat-rich connective tissue. They are interconnected dermal ridges, called commissure. Slit-like space bounded laterally labia majora is called sexual slit. The labia majora are covered with hair, and in their lower sections are arranged Bartholin glands, which secrete a lubricant during sexual arousal.
Located inside the labia majora and usually hidden by them. They represent two longitudinal folds of the skin resembling mucosa. The hair on the labia lips, no, but there are sebaceous glands. Labia are a large number of blood vessels and nerve endings, and is one of the erogenous zones of a woman.
The clitoris is located in the upper connection of the labia minora are also well supplied with blood and innervated. The main objective of the clitoris is the concentration of sexual arousal. In neerogirovannom state clitoris in size does not exceed 4-5 mm. The clitoris consists of a head, body and legs. The body of the clitoris is enclosed in a dense fibrous membranes and plays a role of sexual head.
The internal sex organs
Ovary - it is a paired organ and female reproductive gland, similar to the male testes. Is a flat oval body lengths of 2, 5 cm, a width of 1, 5 cm and 1 cm thick. The two ends of the ovary are distinguished: the top, which faces the fallopian tube, and the bottom is connected to the uterus special binder. Outside the ovary is covered with cortex, under which is a gentle medulla. It is in the cortex of mature follicles from which the release of the egg. Another function of the ovary is the synthesis of sex hormones.
The vagina is a stretchable fibrous muscle-tube about 8 cm long. The upper end of the vagina covers the cervix, and the bottom - hole opens in the sex gap. The opening of the vagina in virgins covered fold of mucous membrane, the hymen, leaving only a small opening. From inside the vagina is covered with a mucous membrane with multiple folds, allowing it to be stretched during childbirth and intercourse.
Uterus - a muscular organ located in the pelvis between the bladder
Urinary bladder - structure and function
front and the rectum behind. The uterus is the development of the ovum. Also generative function performs menstrual uterus. The uterus is pear-shaped and rejected in front, forming an angle between the body and cervix.
The cervix is an extension of the body, but rounder and is already the last. The cervix is the outer end protrudes into the upper vagina. Nulliparous cervical opening has a rounded shape, and giving birth looks transverse slot with a catch on the edges. In the first stage of labor the cervix to soften the edges and thinner, thereby going disclosure of uterine throat.
Uterine (fallopian tubes) play the role of the oviducts in which the fertilized egg enters the uterus. From inside the fallopian tubes are covered with fibers that provide movement egg into the uterus. The outer end of the fallopian tubes adjacent to the ovaries. The fallopian tubes are four departments: the mother, the isthmus ampullar and funnel.
