Vagina is an elastic and muscular canal which has a soft lining which is flexible and provides lubrication and sensation.
Uterus is connected to the outside world through vagina. The vulva and
labia form the entrance and the cervix of the uterus protrudes into
the vagina, forming the interior end.
Vagina serves as a conduit for menstrual flow from the uterus, which is also where a penis inserted during sexual intercourse.
The hymen is a thin membrane of tissue that surrounds and narrows the
vaginal opening. The hymen can be torn or ruptured by exercise or
The existence of g-spot is something that has urologists arguing to
this day. G-spot was named after a German doctor Ernst Gräfenberg who
first wrote about an erogenous zone in the anterior vaginal wall. This
region behind the pubic bone is often credited as the trigger for a
vaginal orgasm and a catalyst for female ejaculation. The G-spot's
existence is still debated, and whether it's fact or fiction depends
on whom you ask. Many argue that focusing only on g-spot is much like
stimulating male's testicles without touching the penis and expecting an orgasm.
No gynae surgeon has seen a G-spot during an operation.
Menstruation is referred to females monthly bleeding. When a female
menstruates, her body sheds the lining of the uterus aka womb. The
menstrual blood flows from uterus through a small opening in the
cervix and exits the body through the vagina. Average menstrual period is 3 to 5 days.
In the United States, an average girl will receive her period when she
is 12 years old. Normal ages for the start of the period are 8 to 15.
Most often, the first period starts about 2 years after the beginning
of breast development.
A few days before the start of menstrual periods, most women
experience tender breasts, bloating and muscle aches. These are normal premenstrual symptoms. Once these symptoms begin to affect a person's daily life, they are referred to as Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS. PMS may affect a person's body as well as their mood. Some women experience their first PMS in their teens or 20s. Some do not experience PMS until their 30s. The symptoms may get worse as a female approaches perimenopause.
While there is no such thing as male PMS, males can experience their own version of a hormonal change. IMS or Irritable Male Syndrome is a condition that men suffer from and is characterized by irritability, mood swings, hot flashes and even stomach cramps. IMS is not monthly but can happen at any time since it is caused by a drop in levels of the hormone testosterone.
Painful intercourse affects about 60% of women at some point in their life. While many factors might come in to play, this pain can be caused due to the penis hitting the cervix. This is common when a male's penis is longer than the depth of a female's vagina.
