Female Genitalia

Review the anatomy of the external female genitalia (vulva), including the monspubis, a hair-covered fat pad overlying the symphysis pubis; the labia majora, rounded folds of adipose tissue; the labia minora, thinner pinkish red folds that extend anteriorly to form the prepuce; and the clitoris. The vestibule is the boat-shaped fossa between the labia minora. In its posterior portion lies the vaginal opening (introitus), which in virgins may be hidden by the hymen. The term perineum, as commonly used clinically, refers to the tissue between the introitus and the anus.
