There are certain confusions with the terms of the vagina, the correct thing is to say that it is an internal genital organ, of the female reproductive system. The menstrual fluids come out of this, functioning as a kind of membranous tube, which connects with the uterus.

In its anatomical aspect it is not so complex, as defined by a study of the female reproductive system “the vagina descends and forms an anterior concavity curve. This anterior wall has a length of 6 – 8 cm, and the vagina communicates through its upper part with the uterine cavity since the cervix projects inside it”.

It should be noted that the vagina also has highly beneficial components for moments of copulation and to protect the system from bacteria or viruses.
