    Is it possible for my vulva to not produce sebum? It gets kinda dry down there sometimes. Is sebum the same stuff as to when a woman gets 'wet' or horny?

    Hi hacw, if your vulva didn't produce any sebum, you would know for sure, since it would be REALLY uncomfortable! It's totally normal to feel dry sometimes.

    Sebum is not the same as arousal fluids, such as lubrication and female ejaculation. Sexual arousal causes blood flow to the vagina, vulva, and clitoris to increase, which causes a 'sweating' reaction, resulting in natural lubrication. Female ejaculate is thought to be produced by the Skene's glands in the urethra, and is expelled before, during, or after orgasm. Some women produce ejaculate, whereas others do not - either way is completely healthy :)

    Hey, how do I know I'm not touching on my hymen instead of my cervix? Last time I went to the doctor she said it was 'intact'. I'm kind if confused about the whole biology of this...

    Hey there, the hymen is a thin membrane that partially covers the vagina. Your cervix is inside the vagina, and you need to stick a finger up the vagina to be able to feel it. It should feel like a small bump or node. For more information on cervix tracking, please read this article: https://kindara.zendesk.com/entries/23861856-What-is-cervix-tracking-
