Female Genitals and Virginity

Female Genitals and Virginity


Introduction:

Virgin (Latin  virgo: maiden,  intacta: untouched): A female who has not experienced sexual intercourse.

Defloration: The act of depriving a woman of her virginity.

Female  qenitals:

  • The labia  mojorta  are  the  two  elongated  folds  of  skin projecting  downwards  and  backwards  from  the  mons  veneris.
  • The labia  minora  are  two  thin  folds  of skin  just  within  labia  majora.
  • The lower  portions  of  labia  called  fourchette.
  • fossa  navicularis: depression  between  fourchette  and  the  vaginal  orifice.
  • The  vestibule is  the  triangular  surface  which  extends from clitoris  (above)  to  hymen  (below)  and  labia  minora (laterally).

Normal Female Anatomy in Virgins:

  • Labia  majora are  thick,  rounded,  firm,  fleshy  and  elastics.
  • They are  opposed  to  each  other  to  completely close vaginal orifice  (In  non-virgin  labia  majora  are  thin,  lax  and  do  not  completely  close  vaginal  orifice).
  • Labia minora are  ,  thin,  pink and  lies  inside  the  labia  majora  (in  non-virgin  labia  minora  is  enlarge, cutaneous and projecting outside  labia  majora).
  • Clitoris is  small (it  is  enlarged  in  non-virgin).
  • Vestibule  is  narrow  (it  is  spacious in  non-virgin).
  • vagina  is  small’  narrow  tight,  reddish  with rugose  wall  (in non-virgin  spacious, loose, roomy and elongated).
  • Hymen  is  intact (it  is  ruptured  during  defloration).
  • Fourchette  and posterior  commissure are intact  (torn  in  non-virgin).
  • Fossa  navicularis  is  normal  (it  is  more conspicuous  in  non-virgin).

Types of Hymen

i.  Annular: Opening is situated centrally.

ii. Semilunar or Crescentic: Opening is placed anteriorly.

iii. Infantile: Small linear opening in the middle.

iv. septate: Two openings occur side by side, separated by thin hymenal tissue.

v. Cribriform:Multiple openings.

vi. Vertical: Opening is vertical.

vii. Imperforate: No opening.

  • It  may  be  imperforate,  Ieaving  no opening;  cribriform having  a number  of small  opening  or septate  having two opening.
  • Hymen usually  ruptures  at  the  time  of first  sexual intercourse  and  usually ruptures  posterolaterally or 8′ o clock  or  5′  or  7’o  clock  position or posteriorly  (6’o  clock  position)  In  children,  hymen  is  deep seated  and is  placed high  up  in  vagina  and therefore” may not rupture  during  intercourse.
  • Masturbation  by fingering  results  in  hymen  rupture  at  11-1’ o clock  position.
  • A girl who  has  never  had sexual  intercourse and has  intact  hymen’  is  known  as  true  virgin,  where  as  a girl having involved  in  sexual  intercourse but  still  having intact hymen is  a  false  virgin (pseudo virgin).
  • Hymen  cannot  rupture  by separation  of thighs,  running,  jumping,  cycling,  swimming, horse  riding, Dancing.
  • Glaister  keene  Rods may be  used to  determine  the  degree  of rupture  of hymen  and  whether  the  rupture  is  recent or old.
