Female External Genitals 

Although many people call the female external genitals the vagina, this a misnomer. Rather, the vulva is the correct name for women’s external genitals.

The vagina is an internal muscular tube that extends about 3 inches from the cervix to the opening of the vulva. The cervix is the lower portion of the uterus; the internal female organ where fertilized eggs implant and develop into fetuses during pregnancy.
