WHAT DOES VAGINA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Vagina

The vagina is a fibromuscular elastic tubular tract which is a sex organ and mainly functions for the facilitation of sexual intercourse and childbirth. In mammals, menstruation, which is the periodic discharge of blood and mucosal tissue from the inner lining of the uterus through the vagina, is another primary function of the vagina and usually signals fertility. The location and size of the vagina varies among species, and may vary in size within the same species. In humans, the vagina leads from the opening of the vulva to the uterus, but the vaginal tract ends at the cervix. Unlike mammalian males, who usually have only one genital orifice, mammalian females usually have two, the urethra and the vagina. The vaginal opening is much larger than the urethral opening, and both openings are protected by the labia. Regarding amphibians, birds, reptiles and monotremes, the female reproductive tract is generally known among zoologists as a cloaca; in these species, it may additionally serve as intestinal and urinary tracts. The vagina plays significant role in human female sexuality and sexual pleasure.

Definition of vagina in the English dictionary

The definition of vagina in the dictionary is the moist canal in most female mammals, including humans, that extends from the cervix of the uterus to an external opening between the labia minora. Other definition of vagina is any sheath or sheathlike structure, such as a leaf base that encloses a stem.
