Physiology of greater vestibular gland

 

This gland is the homologue of the male bulbo-urethral gland. It is bilateral and placed deep to the bulb of vestibule. It opens with a duct between the labium minus and the hymen (carunculae hymenales) and may be responsible for lubricating the lower part of vagina.  It is also called Bartholin gland.

The lesser vestibular gland is a smaller version of the greater gland.
