Caption: Post-menopausal vagina. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the post-menopausal vagina of a 63 year old woman. The lining is highly folded and covered with a mucous membrane, which has thinned after the menopause. The vagina is a muscular tube between the cervix and the vulva. It is a passageway for discharging menstrual flow and receiving sperm, and expands to allow the passage of a baby during childbirth. The menopause is the end of the fertile period of a woman's life due to ceased production of the hormone oestrogen. Vaginal symptoms include dryness and loss of elasticity. Magnification: x275 at 6x7cm size.
