Mons Veneris

Updated: FEBRUARY 25, 2015

Mons veneris is a Latin term that translates literally to "mound of Venus" and refers to the rounded mass of fatty tissue that sits over the pubic symphysis in females. During puberty, the mons veneris becomes enlarged and pushes a portion of the labia majora out and away from the pubic bone.

The mons veneris is also referred to as the mons pubis.

More About Mons Veneris

The mons veneris can vary in size depending on the percentage of body fat of an individual and hormone levels. The mons veneris is sensitive specifically to estrogen levels. When females reach puberty, the spike in estrogen levels causes the formation of a distinct mound, which becomes covered with hair after puberty.
