Chapter 4 – The Vagina and Vulva

The Vulva

The vulva is the external part of the female genitalia. Problems with this area of the body are primarily related to skin conditions. It is also related to the genital, urinary and gastroenterological tracts and encompasses the exit routes for all of these body systems. Therefore, it is also prone to the stresses imposed upon it by these functions. Specific problems can also arise for transgender women who have a neovagina (see Gender-affirming care in Australia in Chapter 15: Reproductive and Sexual Health for Trans and Gender Diverse People).
