How well do you know...YOURSELF?

So this is not an exsitential post about knowing how you handle certain situations, what type of mother you are, etc...but rather this is something much more concrete.  I spend much of my working days talking to women of all ages and have come to realize that we do NOT know ourselves well.  At least our female anatomy.

You may say...I'm enjoying my coffee, why do I care?

Because we are the windows through which our daughters see the world.  We are responsible for educating them about their bodies.  We are their best role models.  We will determine how they view themselves, their sexuality and our actions contribute to their self confidence.  By teaching our daughters about their bodies, they will know that they are in control of it.  And then, hopefully, they will make more responsible desicions.

So enough of the heavy stuff...Lets see how much you know.  Below you will see a labeled diagram.  Take the quiz. Get an 'A'.  The grading system is as follows:

90-100%: Great job, you are ready to teach your kids one day (uggghhh...)

75-90%:  Study the diagram, look in the mirror.  Keep reading my blog. Repeat quiz if necessary.

<75%: Consider getting a book and commit to familiarizing yourself with ... yourself...you won't regret it.  Posts to follow about good resources for all women and information about why this is important, so keep reading.  Repeat the quiz until you get it right.

I would love to know if anyone finds this interesting....so PLEASE comment.  I'd be happy to know that all this work was helpful to someone out there.

PS...if you can't read the letters...they start at A on the left and go down thru G (the last one on the left you can skip).  H through O is on the right.

 



 

A

  • Ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Testicles
  • Uterus

So this is pointing toward the fingerlike projections that wrap around the ovary...The fallopian tubes.  The fallopian tubes carry the egg from the ovary to the uterus. The egg can be fertilized either in the tubes or in the uterus (womb).  FYI...an ectopic pregnancy occurs when the egg is fertilized in the tubes and stays there and tries to grow.

B

  • Uterus
  • Vagina
  • Bladder
  • Ovaries
  • Pubic bone

The Bladder.  Nothing to interesting to say about this one.  When its full, you have to pee.

C

  • Pubic Bone
  • Tibia Bone
  • Clitoris
  • Vaginal Opening
  • I don't know....

Pubic Bone.  This sometimes is painful when it separates when you are prego.

D & E

  • Vaginal Opening
  • Clitoris & Clitoral Crura
  • Urethra
  • Penis
  • Are you crazy?

This is the clitoris (E) and the clitoral crura (D).  I know it seems silly to put the penis here as an option but actually the clitoris is the female equivalent of the penis.  In fact, some women that have too much male hormone can have a large clitoris resembling a small penis (fun fact).

This area has many sensory receptors and stimulation causes orgasm.

F

  • Vagina
  • Pee Hole
  • Urethra
  • Clitoris
  • This is too hard....

The answer is Urethra (technically) and pee hole (for those of you who didn't remember the word but got the idea).  This is the bladders connection to the outside world.

G

  • Uterus
  • Urethra
  • Bladder
  • Clitoris
  • Vaginal Opening

Yes, Vaginal Opening.  'Nuf said.

H

  • Testicles
  • Ovaries
  • Fallopian Tubes
  • Uterus
  • Golf balls....

Ovaries.   The ovaries release the egg waiting for fertilization to make a baby!  Amazing.  FYI...the testicle is the male equivalent of the ovary, aka the gonads.

I

  • Uterus (Womb)
  • Rectum
  • Cervix
  • Vagina
  • this one you SHOULD know!

Uterus.  Our baby's home for 9 months.  This you should know.  Don't let me down!

J

  • Uterus
  • Vagina
  • Cervix
  • G spot
  • You SHOULD care about this one...

Cervix.  I hope you know this one.  Later I plan to talk about why the cervix is important.  A pap smear screens for CANCER of the cervix which is a SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE.

L

  • Ovary
  • Urethra
  • Fallopian tube
  • Vaginal Canal
  • Rectum

Vaginal Canal.  Not so interesting, but important.  End of the vaginal canal is the cervix (or the beginning of the uterus).

M

  • G SPOT
  • G SPOT
  • G SPOT
  • G SPOT
  • G SPOT

Ummm..yeah....the G SPOT.  I really hope you got this one.  This is a bean shaped area of the vagina that is also known as the "erogenous zone".

N

  • Vagina
  • Urethra
  • Anus
  • Poop Hole

Answer is...anus.  Again, poop hole is not anatomically correct, but you should get 1/2 credit for this.

O

  • Pelvic Floor Muscles

I didn't think anyone would know this, so its a freebie.  The pelvic floor is important, however, and kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.

I got a perfect score - except some glitch skipped my L and gave me a wrong answer for O. This was interesting. A blog post I can get on board with.
