What is a complete female genitalia examination?

External/internal

Pelvic_exam
A complete pelvic exam would typically include, after a history evaluation, a careful visual inspection and digital exam with fingers and a speculum - to accurately assess both the external and internal female vaginal, vulva, cervix, uterus, tubes, ovaries, and adj. tissues. A pap test is freq. done, as well. Occasionally, a sonogram is helpful.

Dr. Douglas Lawson answered:

Why do some people's female genitalia smell worse than others?

Multiple causes

Back
It could be infection, it could be hygiene issues, it could be a lack of fresh dry air to the vaginal area. Vaginal pH (acid level) may also effect the odor slightly. Recent unprotected sex will also cause an odor. I recommend no underwear to bed when not on your period, shower over tub, cotton panties over thongs and non cotton, and wiping front to back as a start. See you gyn if odor is new.

What can cause random lacerations on female genitalia to appear?

Lichen sclerosis

Open-uri20120729-2406-1udq510
I suspect u have lichen planus/sclerosis: ulcerations on the vulva-vaginal areas can occur because of lichen planus/sclerosis, which we don't know the cause--but likely some autoimmune mechanism. It can be sore, itching, irritated, scarring, and distressing to the woman afflicted. These are quite treatable conditions and so I would recommend consulting your doc for an evaluation. Good luck

Dr. David I. Kurss answered:

If a person is born with both male and female genitalia could they reproduce?

Its possible

Ovaries
Genitalia development depends on the chromosomes and exposure to testosterone. There is a sequence of events starting with the internal genitalia (ovaries, tubes, testes) that ultimately play a role in the development of the external genitalia (outer vagina or penis). If a female, for ex., has all of her genitalia and has an enlarged clitoris (may look like a penis), she could conceive.

Is the female genitalia supposed to have 2 openings besides the anus? Because i only have the very narrow opening which i assume to be the urethra.

Yes

Open-uri20140111-13345-6h1b0f
Yes, a female has another opening besides the urethra -- it's called the vagina and is between the urethra and anus. in some cases it can be very narrow or even absent. In some cultures there may even have been certain procedures done which close or obstruct the vagina. I don't know how old you are, but seeing your physician or Ob-Gyn would be a good idea. S/he can examine and advise you.

Is it possible for one person to possess both female and male genitalia?

Rare

Women
The condition you are asking about is called hermaphrodite. These people have both female and male genitalia. It is extremely rare. In my 35 years of practice I have never seen a person with this condition

I am 26 years old female. I want to lighten the skin of my genitalia and inner thighs. How can i do that.?

Laser, hydroquinone

Skin
The most effective treatment to eliminate hyperpigmentation of the skin is through laser treatment. Other very effective way to lighten skin is by using Hydroquinone and or prescription retinoids based creams. Shaving the inner thigh, some creams, laser hair removal are some causes of darkening. Chaffing (rubbing of one thigh agains the other) may be the main reason for hyperpigmentation of thighs
