Re: labia minora knowledge?

I think your question is flawed. The walls of the vagina (btw, not the inside of it, because the vagina is the 'inside') are mucous membranes, not 'considered to be', they are. Period.

Mucous membranes are not skin, and skin is not a mucous membrane, they are two separate things and the walls of the vagina just happen to be mucous membranes (just like the inside of the mouth) while the labia minora happen to be made of skin.

Maybe you should look up what is a mucous membrane?

Re: labia minora knowledge?

thisby, did i make an error in my question? isn't saying that the inside of the vagina is mucous membrane the same as saying they're considered to be mucous membrane?

how did you know the labia minora are skin folds(composed of skin), and NOT mucous membrane?

Re: labia minora knowledge?

The inner lips of the vulva is cosidered the labia minora and the outer lips is the labia majora. They have pictures to the names on the internet. You should check it out.

Re: labia minora knowledge?

Just wondering, why are you so concerned with the medical distinction of whether the labia minora is a mucous membrane or not?

For something to be a mucous membrane, it would have to have certain characteristics. Did you look it up?

Re: labia minora knowledge?

The labia minora is skin folds that do NOT produce mucous, so they are just skin folds. The vagina walls produce mucous. I guess a good example would be when you and your boyfriend are kissing and getting ready to make love, you "get wet". BUT the labia manora does NOT get wet, the vagina walls get wet. Make sense?
