Vulva


Female reproductive sstem development video   -Interactive video text

In the female the genital folds form the vulva which guard the opening into the introitus, becoming the labia minora. The opening between them is called the vestibule. The lateral swelling close up in the male to form the scrotum. In the female they remain without closing to form the big lips of the vulva called labia majora.

The labia minora is homologous to penile (spongy urethra) which is derived from genital fold and are supplied by the same structures. The glans penis or glans clitoridis are formed from the ectoderm so that the urethra enclosed by them is formed from ectoderm. Hence the urethra has double origin. The urethra in the glans is ectodermal with stratified squamous epithelium, the rest are endodermal, with columnar or cuboidal epithelium.
