Female Reproductive System



Female Reproductive System: Reproductive organs

Introduction (composition)

The female reproductive system consists of the ovaries, fallopian tubes (fallopian tubes), uterus and vagina.

Ovaries and Function

Ovaries produce hormones, such as female sex hormones (estrogens and progesterone) and secondary oocytes (cells that become eggs, or eggs if fertilized).

Fallopian tubes

Through the fallopian tubes, also known as the fallopian tubes, the egg is collected from the abdominal cavity after being expelled from the ovary (ovulation) and, once collected, is carried towards the uterus. Usually fertilization still occurs inside it.

Uterus and its function

It is in the uterus that the fertilized egg will be fixed, and then the development of pregnancy until its end, when labor occurs.

Vagina

It is through the vagina that sperm are introduced into the female reproductive system, and it is in this organ that the birth canal is located.
