Urethra

Drawing of Urethra in Male & FemaleThe urethra is a tube that connects the urinary bladder to the urinary meatus for the removal of urine from the body of both females (a) and males (b). In females the urethra connects to the urinary meatus above the vagina and is only used for urinating.

Urinary Meatus

Drawing of Urethra MeatusThe female external urethral orifice is the external opening of the urethra, from which urine is ejected during urination. It is located about 2.5 cm (1 in) behind the clitoris and immediately in front of the vagina in the vulval vestibule. It usually assumes the form of a short, sagittal cleft with slightly raised margins. To its left and right are the openings of the Skene’s glands.

Uterus

Uterus StructureThe uterus or womb is a major female hormone-responsive, secondary sex organ of the reproductive system in humans. Things occurring in the uterus are described with the term in utero. In the human, the lower end of the uterus, the cervix, opens into the vagina, while the upper end, the fundus, is connected to the fallopian tubes. It is within the uterus that the foetus develops during gestation.
