Evidence of 'Female Prostate' Found
Researchers in Vienna say they have found evidence of a “female prostate,” according to a report in the Journal of Sexual Medicine (2007;4:1388-1393).
High-definition perineal ultrasound images obtained from two premenopausal women who reported fluid expulsion during orgasm (ejaculation) revealed a structure “consistent with the gland tissue surrounding the entire length of the female urethra.”
On ureteroscopy, the investigators observed one midline opening just inside the external meatus in the 6 o'clock position. “Biochemically, the fluid emitted during orgasm showed all the parameters found in prostate plasma in contrast to values measured in voided urine,” the authors wrote.
