Vagina – endless?

Can anything get lost in the vagina??????

Does the vagina continue into my abdomen? Chest? Throat?

Interestingly, many women perceive the vagina as a long, continuous canal that starts at the genitals and continues into the body… Sort of like the digestive system, that spans from mouth to rectum (or vice versa).

This perception leads to worries such as noted above, easily believed with the vagina being an ‘invisible’ part of the body that cannot be self-tested.

The truth:

  • The vagina is only about 10-12cm deep (4-4.5 inches)
  • It is a dead-end tube
  • A typical gynecologic exam will check the entire length of the vagina
  • In the unlikely event that the tampon is ‘stuck’ there, it can be easily retrieved
  • Nothing can get lost ‘in there’

If you’ve just taken out a ruler to see how long 10-12cm are, you may wonder how does an erect penis fit inside being that it is longer than the quoted vaginal length…

Well, nature was created by a fine architect: the uterus, which sits at the deep end of the vagina, is like a trampoline, able to be nudged into the pelvis by the arriving penis, thus lengthening the vagina as needed.

Smart, isn’t it?

    Whats the most comfortable penis size for women?

    • Ditza Katz says:

      Most women can ‘house’ most penis sizes as nature created us to be able to procreate. However, some men are thicker/longer than usual, which will make for a challenging if not impossible penetation.

    I have heard that it hurts when the penis hits the uterus is this true? If it acts like a trampoline? Can he be too big? How can I tell. My boy friend is a lot bigger than any other guy I have been with before. I have never been able to have sex because of my vaginismus so I don’t know. If he is too big how can we do this once my treatment is successful without hurting me again?
