Female reproductive organs are formed from the vulva, clitoris, urinary tract, Bartholini's glands, vaginal opening, cervix, uterus, to the ovaries. In the vaginal area, it is protected from the outside environment, so that the condition of the vagina remains healthy and has a small risk of bacterial contamination and dirt from the outside environment; this can be helped by the function of pubic hair, skin and vulva on the front of the vagina. And in general, starting the skin and vulva on the outside will appear intact or intact so that there are no exposed areas or holes in reasonable conditions.
While on the inner side of the vulva, there are holes as channels from Bartholin's glands and skene glands. So that the hole in this area is a reasonable condition to be found.
In connection with your question, the existence of holes in the skin of your vaginal lips cannot be informed in writing only, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a gynecologist to identify holes in your vaginal skin. Some conditions such as scars, dilated vaginal skin pores, or due to a history of previous vaginal area skin infection.
And if you look at the picture above, you can also find Bartholin's glandular ducts on the left and right; namely the glands that function for vaginal mucus production and lubrication in the vagina, especially when sexual desire increases.
Whereas in the area near the clitoris and urtra, there is skene's gland which also serves to lubricate and help prevent bacterial contamination during urine.
So, if you see this hole on the inside side of the vulva, this is a normal condition.
And at the time of infection / vaginal discharge, both of these glands can also experience inflammation and swelling. When inflammation occurs, the color of mucus can be as different as you see. However, after the inflammation process disappears, mucus from the glands around the vagina will return to normal.
However, for more certain information, you can discuss and visit your obstetrician, because the complaints you feel need to be ascertained directly with a physical examination by an obstetrician. Thus the info we can convey.
