Abstract

Full vaginal casts of 39 caucasian women, 13 each nulliparous, uniparous and multiparous, were made using vinyl polysiloxane impression material. Vaginal lengths were measured with polished acrylic rods inserted by the subjects, and introital diameters were measured with conical polypropylene flasks. Parallel sided, conical, heart, and slug shapes were found. Lengths ranged from 6.86 to 14.81 cm; widths ranged from 4.8 to 6.3 cm; introital diameters ranged from 2.39 to 6.45 cm. No significant differences by parity or shape were found.
