Unique structures in females are the greater vestibular glands (Bartholin's glands), Skene glands, vaginal vestibule, clitoris, and vulva.
Skene glands are located along the lateral aspect of the distal two-thirds of the urethra and provide urethral lubrication.
Other glandular elements that are present in the vulva include the Skene glands (paraurethral glands), the Bartholin glands (mucus producing vestibular glands), and minor vestibular glands.
