Rugae - Definition - FYI

I just got back from an appointment with a nurse practioner. I was seeing her for a second opinion on a bulge that I was feeling at the mouth of my vagina. I was wondering if it was a cystocele. She confirmed that it was not. It is something called Rugae. I looked it up on the internet when I got home. It is Rugae vaginales, the definition which is - a number of transverse ridges in the mucous membrane of the vagina. The nurse practioner told me that it is there to provide friction during intercourse for pleasure. It is something that we do want. I was relieved to hear that I didn't have a cystocele and that this was a good thing. I thought some of you sisters might want to have this info. I did a search on this site under Rugae and found two other threads on it. Hope this helps some of you.

Hmmm...what an interesting piece of info ((Kelou)), thank you!!
It is nice to know not all vaginal bulging is bad exp realizing that so is actually pretty awesome
Think we will all be wanting some of these *bulges* now

I think I'll inquire on the chance of possibly obtaining an extra one of these Rugae's maybe even 2

Thanks again for sharing
