Vaginal contraction is a contraction of the pelvic muscles surrounding the vagina, which are most commonly associated with sexual intercourse and orgasm. Although these are generally an involuntary muscular response, some women can control the muscles of the vagina to perform vaginal contractions at will, providing a pleasurable sensation for both parties during sexual intercourse. Involuntary spasm of the muscles around the vagina, usually caused by anxiety, can result in vaginismus.
Infections of the genitourinary tract include infections of the bladder, kidney, prostate, vagina, and sexually transmitted infections. To gain access to the body, pathogens can penetrate mucous membranes lining the genitourinary tract. Chlamydial Genitourinary Infections, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Chancroid, Lymphogranuloma venereum, Trichomoniasis, and Granuloma inguinale are common genitourinary infections in both genders. Infections of the vagina are very common in women and include bacterial vaginosis, mycotic vulvovaginitis, and trichomoniasis. Those genitourinary infections that are common in women are discussed in this book include: Cervicitis, Salpingitis, Endometritis, Pelvic inflammatory disease, Tubo-ovarian abscess, Bacterial vaginosis, Vulvovaginal candidiasis, and Bartholin's cyst. Urethritis, Bacterial prostatitis, Epididymitis, Orchitis, Balanitis, and Balanoposthitis are common genitourinary infections in men and are discussed in this book. Those sexually transmitted infections, which affect genitourinary system are discussed in this book.
This introduction to genitourinary and pelvic radiology is a further volume in the Learning Imaging series. Written in a case-based format, the book is subdivided into ten chapters: kidney, adrenal gland, urinary bladder, collecting system and urethra, prostate and seminal vesicles, scrotum, obstetrics, uterus, cervix, vagina and vulva, adnexa and retroperitoneum. Genitourinary radiology has undergone a tremendous change owing to advances in ultrasound, CT and MRI that have redefined our understanding of genitourinary and pelvic pathology. Each chapter includes an introduction and ten case studies with illustrations and comments from anatomical, physiopathological and radiological standpoints and with bibliographic recommendations. Learning Genitourinary and Pelvic Imaging will be of value for radiologists, radiology residents, medical students and anybody else working in genitourinary and pelvic pathology.

In biology, a clasper is a male anatomical structure found some groups of animals, used in mating. Male cartilaginous fish have claspers formed from the posterior portion of their pelvic fin which serve as intromittent organs used to channel semen into the female's cloaca during mating. The act of mating in some fish including sharks usually includes one of the claspers raised to allow water into the siphon through a specific orifice. The clasper is then inserted into the vagina, where it opens like an umbrella to anchor its position. The siphon then begins to contract exerting water and sperm. Male chimaeras have cephalic claspers on their heads, which are thought to aid in holding the female during mating.
Ectopic pregnancy is one of the life threatening complication in first trimister of pregnancy. The raising incidence is attributed to advanced treatment in infertility and chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. It is one of the differential diagnosis in patients coming with first trimester bleeding per vagina. Its early diagnosis is of atmost importance in preventing maternal morbidity and mortatity.
Abnormal Uterine bleeding (AUB) is the name given to describe any deviation from the normal menstrual cycle. The average cycle lasts 29 days with a range of 23-39 days with bleeding episodes lasting 2-7 days. The international federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and the American Congress of Obstetricians-Gynecologist has endorsed the PALM-COLEIN classification system that divides AUB into structural and non-structural causes. Abnormal Uterine Bleeding can be caused by pelvic pathology like a distortion of the endometrial cavity due to fibroids, or endometrial protrusions into the cervix or vagina (polyps), or because of friable endometrial tissue. The friable endometrial tissue is likely caused by unopposed estrogen which causes the endometrium to become friable, vascular, and lacking sufficient stromal support which equates to heavy, continuous uterine bleeding.

Pelvic exenteration (or pelvic evisceration) is a radical surgical treatment that removes all organs from a person's pelvic cavity. The urinary bladder, urethra, rectum, and anus are removed. The procedure leaves the person with a permanent colostomy and vesicostomy. In women, the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and in some cases the vulva are removed. In men, the prostate is removed.
