These links are probably NSFW, unless you're in the medical profession.

www.3dvulva.com has some good images, including rotatable ones. I find this one best, but unfortunately it doesn't have labels with the names of each part. I guess the darker purple part must be the vestibular bulbs. I don't know what the white spheres at the ends are; maybe vulvovaginal/Bartholin glands.

This page has several diagrams; only black&white though.

clitoral anatomy

The following page has a couple of interesting 3-D sonogram* computer-enhanced images of an erect clitoris, along with some confusing and inconsistent looking hand-drawn diagrams:

This page also has a couple of additional diagrams:

After perusing all those images and reading the texts, I'm left confused... I'm not sure which parts are the corpus cavernosum versus the vestibular bulbs. And some of the images make it appear that the Crus are the tips of the Corpus Cavernosum, while other images make them look like 2 totally separate parts.

The 3D sonograms images make it look like the corpus cavernosa surrounds the vagina like a donut surrounding a donut hole.. but apparently they're 2 separate stems that go around the vagina on both sides and aren't connected on the other end.

* Retrospectively, I suppose that the organs in those images are too clean and distinct-looking for them to be actual sonograms.

cervix, diva-cup

I tried feeling for my cervix again, and today I couldn't feel anything with either finger. I guess the cervix does change position on different days, like they say.

I'm still trying to get the hang of using the menstrual cup )

I think I was able to feel my cervix with my finger today, while in the shower. I'm not completely sure if that is what I was feeling, as it wasn't a very prominent bump like my nose is, but I would guess that must have been the cervix.
Oddly, when I used the finger on one hand (I can't remember which was which now), I only felt a small bumpy thing on the left side (not sure what that was) and nothing in the middle. Whereas with the other hand, I instead felt a larger bump in the middle, which I'm assuming was the cervix. I tried twice with both fingers, and had the same results.

After the shower, I tried inserting my diva-cup, and I actually got it in, for the first time ever. These pages showing different folds that can be used, helped a lot:

I used the 7-fold. But I did not feel the cup pop open, and I was not able to grasp the base and twist the cup like the instructions say. I can't fit my thumb and forefinger in far enough to do that. So I am not sure if it is in right, or positioned correctly. But it's in, and it isn't uncomfortable so far. I am worried that I will have difficulty removing it, but I'll deal with that later.
