Vulva

Vulva is the collective name for the female external genitalia.  It includes the mons pubis, labia majora, labia minora, clitoris, vestibule of vagina, vestibular bulb and the greater vestibular glands.

Blood supply:

The components of vulva are supplied by the branches of external and internal pudendal arteries on each side. The venous drainage is through tributaries of the external and internal pudendal veins.

Lymph drainage:

The various components of vulva have their own lymph drainage (see respective page for more details). Lymph from the skin of vulva is drained into the medial group of superficial inguinal lymph nodes.

Nerve supply:

The anterior parts of the vulva are supplies by the Ilioinguinal nerves and the genital branch of the Genitofemoral nerves. The posterior parts are supplied by the branches of the perineal nerves and the posterior cutaneous nerve of thigh.
