urethra hole right above vagina?

Postby jenn0909 » Mon Jun 07, 2010 10:19 pm

I have always been curious about this and I have not been to a gyno yet and am too embarrassed to ask my mom. But the hole to my urethra is right about my vagina opening. In all the medical drawings there always seems to be a space between the two openings...so is this a problem? There is only a little flab of skin in between these.

There can be quite a bit of variation in women's anatomy. This is normal. Just as we all look different in our faces, etc. so do we vary in the other areas of our bodies.

Best wishes.
