Urethra: diaseases, treatment options ...

  • Location and function


    The urethra is the connection of the bladder to the outside. The urine, which is stored in  the bladder, flows through the urethra to the outside. The urethra goes through the pelvic floor, wherein the external sphincter muscle is located.

    The male urethra is about 20 cm long. The man's sperm has also access to the outside through the urethra. In the section of the penis the urethra is surrounded from its own erectile tissue. Till the region of ​​the prostate the urethra is lined with the same mucous membrane like the bladder (urothelium).

    The female urethra is much shorter. It is 2.5 - 5 cm long. Its external orifice is located in the so-called vaginal vestibule just behind the clitoris.
