Labium Minus

Last Updated: Jun 18, 2015

The labia (singular, labium) minor, also known as the labia minus, are flattened lengthwise into folds located with the cleft between the labia major. These folds extend along either side of the vestibule. They are composed of connective tissue that is richly supplied with blood vessels, causing a pinkish appearance. In the back, near the anus, the labia minor merge with the labia major, while in themycontentbreak front they converge to form a hood-like covering around the clitoris.
