In fact, myths and misinformation seem to surround the vagina. Sometimes, a woman's entire genital region is referred to as the vagina. But in fact, the vagina is just a part of the package, so to speak. That includes the inner and outer labia, the clitoris, clitoral hood and the opening to the urethra and vagina. The actual vagina is an internal structure, along with the other parts of the female reproductive system including the cervix, uterus, ovaries and Fallopian tubes which are sometimes called the oviducts.
