Balance in life and balance in the vagina go hand in hand. Fluids in our body can be described by their pH balance — either acidic or basic. The vagina fluids are also acidic, which keeps the vagina from overgrowing yeast or bacteria," says Sheryl A.
Women's internal genitals are described as follows: the hymen, the thin piece of tissue that partly blocks the entrance to the vagina; Bartholin's glands, on each side of the labia minora, which secrete fluid when a woman is sexually aroused; the urethra, the urine passageway; the vagina, the passage that leads from the vulva to the cervix, otherwise known as the neck of the womb; then there is the womb or uterus, in which a fertilized egg can grow into a fully developed baby prior to birth; if an egg is not fertilized, the lining of the womb will be shed in the process called menstruation. If the uterus should become diseased it may have to be removed in the operation known as hysterectomy. At the upper end of the uterus are the two Fallopian tubes, along which the woman's eggs pass and where they meet a man's sperm; the eggs are stored in the ovaries, of which there are two.
The belief that it is easier to discern the virgin state of a woman than a man is more fable than fact, argues medical anthropologist Sherria Ayuandini. Unfortunately, it is still widely believed and practised to subjugate women. The Human Rights Watch condemned the test as a form of gender-based violence and called on the military to end the practice immediately, which it says violates the prohibition of inhuman treatment under international human rights law.

You also don't need to feel embarrassed about not knowing this stuff: not only do plenty of adult women not know either, it's certainly not your fault that no one has given you thorough sex education or asked if you had any questions. Many people experience fear and shame when it comes to their genitals and sex.

There are so many parts and structures that make up the female sexual and reproductive anatomy, so you get a pass if you aren't deeply familiar with each and every one. No, what you see on the outside is NOT your vagina. Despite popular use, vagina isn't a general word for the entire swath of bodily real estate below your hips and above your thighs.
In a way, your parents weren't lying when they told you that you were a very special little girl. Not because you have unique talents that set you apart from the rest of the world no, there are plenty of other people who can say the alphabet backwards ; rather, it's because you and your vagina are totally, completely unique. There are no two vaginas in the world that look the samesmell the same, or feel the same.
Surgical options often combine vaginoplasty tightening of the vaginal wall and labiaplasty reducing the labia. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation typically uses laser and energy. Young Charmer is waiting for Your call
And it's not entirely their fault. Maybe they've been listening to older brothers who claimed to be more vagina-savvy than they actually were, or high school pals who didn't have access to the most reliable pussy data. Maybe they've been hanging out on parts of the Internet where information doesn't always get fact-checked otherwise known as "the Internet".
