Hi,

What is the plural form of adnexa?

The word adnexa means appendages or auxiliary parts (plural) , usually referring to the fallopian tubes and ovaries.

Adnexa, feces, genitalia, menses, scabies, tongs, tweezers are always plural.

Circulation, vision, ascites, and herpes are singular in meaning.
