The Labia Minora





Category: Diseases of Women

These are two smaller folds situated within the labia
majora, extending from the clitoris, downward and outward for about one
and one-half inches on each side of the vaginal opening. At their
convergence at the clitoris each lip (labium) divides into two folds and
these surround the glans (clitoris) forming its covering (prepuce) above
and the bridle (frenum) below. These lips (labia) are composed of mucous
membrane covered by a thin epithelial layer. They contain a network of
vessels and numerous large mucous crypts (small sacs or follicles) which
secrete a quantity of (fatty) matter.
