Functions of the Vagina

In this area, there is current information about “vaginal dryness” which is encountered widely by ladies. There are many causes for the vaginal dryness trouble, which means that the vagina is not lubricated enough or lubrication is less than typical. Prior to moving on this subject, it would be a good idea to know certain facts about vaginal anatomy.

Vaginal Anatomy
Vagina is a female organ which is unequaled in every method. It has lots of great qualities in both its physiological structure and functions. This organ, which is 9-10 cm long and normally, has its upper and lower walls adjacent to each other, throughout birth offering or the insertion of the penis, opens, flexes and widens nearly like an accordion. In this manner, during birth offering, a child, who has a head roughly 10 cm, body 52 cm and weighs practically 3500 grams, can come out.

Due to the fact that the vaginal walls teem with nicks, sexual satisfaction increases each time the penis goes in and out. If the vagina was a straight channel, both guys and ladies would not have the ability to get a lot pleasure throughout sexual intercourse.

Another function of the vagina is the secretion glands located at the entryway part. Among these glands, a lot of extensively known are the “Bartholin’s glands” located at the entryway on right and left sides and the “Skene’s glands” spread out around the urinary hole.

Both of these two groups of glands work to provide the vaginal region with lubrication particularly during sexual relations. Since, vaginal dryness causes the person to have problems such as, discomfort, inflammation and bleeding during a sexual intercourse. Leave aside sexual relations, even when a woman is strolling, the inner lips rub on to each other and the dryness of this region may cause irritability.

Lubrication (moistening) is the wetting of the vagina by the fluids secreted from the vaginal glands and the cells making up the vaginal walls. In these secretions which offer lubrication, might include specific viruses such as, AIDS, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C. For that reason, it is important to be really mindful and to make use of prophylactic in order not to be inflicted with an illness during a sexual relations.

Nevertheless, this is not a definite policy, as some women, although they take enjoyment, could get little lubrication throughout sexual relations and often although lubrication is rather high, there could not be much enjoyment.

On the other hand, in some ladies, together with lubrication being higher than typical throughout sexual intercourse, there may be reduces in sensuality and pleasure. Even specific noises may be heard in the vagina. For some individuals, as these noises trigger their concentrations to break, it may become a problem.

Once more, in the puerperal and breast feeding durations after birth, enhancing “prolactin” (milk hormone) reduces the estrogen hormone in women and triggers vaginal dryness.
Vaginal infections, specific medicines, hyperprolactinemia (boost in the prolactin hormone), vaginal bath (washing the within of the vagina), tension, vaginal suppositories and medications, again could trigger the problem of vaginal dryness.

Also in dyspareunia, which is the scenario of experiencing pain throughout sexual relations, there is vaginal dryness.
