Two pairs of skin flaps called the labia (which means lips and is pronounced: LAY-bee-uh) surround the vaginal opening.The clitoris (pronounced: KLIH-tuh-rus), a small sensory organ, is located toward the front of the vulva where the folds of the labia join.Between the labia are openings to the urethra (the canal that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body, which is pronounced: yoo-REE-thruh) and vagina.
Humans, like other organisms, pass certain characteristics of themselves to the next generation through their genes, the special carriers of human traits.
The genes that parents pass along to their children are what make children similar to others in their family, but they are also what make each child unique. They are different in shape and structure, but both are specifically designed to produce, nourish, and transport either the egg or sperm.
A female's internal reproductive organs are the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.
The vagina is a muscular, hollow tube that extends from the vaginal opening to the uterus.
This ability to become wider or narrower allows the vagina to accommodate something as slim as a tampon and as wide as a baby.
