Hi all! So since starting MCs it goes without saying I am noticing a lot more about my internal anatomy. I get the pubic bone and cervix, TMI I notice definite change in my bowels towards the back/bottom whether they are full or not, and my bladder towards the top/front is often very soft. Does anyone know what is on either SIDE of the vagina? I've noticed that the side walls also seem to change in hardness and TMI "protrusion" into the vagina - while I get this for my bowels, I don't get it for the sides of the vagina. Or is the vagina surrounded by bowels on all sides? Thanks :-) I hope the tags are ok - I would have chosen "diagrams" but I don't have one :-(

You made me curious as well.

I found this interactive thing http://www.healthline.com/human-body-maps/female-abdomen#4/1
It's a bit tricky to use and I can't seem to figure out the answer, but have fun trying.

Found another- http://www.3dscience.com/3D_Models/Human_Anatomy/Female_Systems/Female_Digestive.php
According to this, the answer is no?

Awesome pages, thanks! They have great internal views of reproductive and digestive organs. Yeah, the answer is apparently no, it looks like the vagina is surrounded by fatty tissue (?) http://www.healthline.com/human-body-maps/female-reproductive-organs#5/

I just joined this group! I've had some pelvic floor physical therapy done and I learned that what is behind the sides of the vaginal walls is muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue. I almost didn't believe it because they can feel as hard as bones! The vagina is essentially a muscular tube. If you feel around inside while you move your legs you should be able to feel these muscles move because they are connected to pretty much everything in your pelvic floor. It is amazing how they can be very tense one day and not the next. This photo is a little technical but it gives you an idea of the variety of tissues we have down there: http://spirittrail.wordpress.com/2013/01/31/the-pelvic-diaphragm/ I encourage you to learn more about the female pelvic floor muscles!
