IV) Female Reproductive SystemB) Oogenesis


Iv female reproductive system b oogenesis

IV) Female Reproductive SystemB) Oogenesis

  • where as the sperm is small the ovum is much larger because it is packed full of nutrients so it can divide rapidly after fertilization.

  • like a sperm cell an ovum oocyte undergoes a type of cell division that halves the number of chromosomes (called meiosis).

IV) Female Reproductive SystemB) Oogenesis

  • like a sperm cell an ovum oocyte undergoes a type of cell division that halves the number of chromosomes (called meiosis).

  • Oogenesis

    • is the formation of an ovum

    • occurs in specialized cells in the ovaries called follicles.

      • a follicle contains two types of cells

        • a primary oocyte

        • cells of the granulosa

          ~ the granulosa is the layer of cells that form the follicle wall. They provide nutrients for the developing oocytes.

IV) Female Reproductive SystemB) Oogenesis

  • a primary oocyte

  • cells of the granulosa

    ~ the granulosa is the layer of cells that form the follicle wall. They provide nutrients for the developing oocytes.

  • begins when the nutrient follicle cells which ARE surrounding the primary oocyte begin to divide.

  • the primary oocyte undergoes cell division and while this occurs the majority of cytoplasmic nutrients move to one of the poles and form a secondary oocyte.

    • the secondary oocyte contains 23 chromosomes.

    • the remaining cell, called the first polar body, receives little cytoplasm and dies.

    IV) Female Reproductive SystemB) Oogenesis

    • as the follicle cells surrounding the secondary oocyte start to proliferate a fluid filled cavity forms.

      • the dominant follicle begins to push outwards trying to escape the ovary.

        • constriction of blood vessels weaken the ovarian wall.

        • enzymes weaken the follicle wall from the inside.

      • the seconday oocyte (with the first polar body) is released, this is called ovulation.


    Iv female reproductive system b oogenesis4

    IV) Female Reproductive SystemB) Oogenesis

    • enzymes weaken the follicle wall from the inside.

  • the seconday oocyte (with the first polar body) is released, this is called ovulation.

  • the follicle cells that were surrounding the secondary oocyte stay in the ovary and transform into the corpus luteum.

    • the corpus luteum secretes hormones essential for pregnancy.

    • if no pregnancy occurs, the corpus luteum degenerates.

  • after its release from the ovary the secondary oocyte is swept into the end of the Fallopian tube by the fimbriae.

    • the secondary ooctye is moved along the Fallopian tube by cilia

    • if healthy sperm is present fertilization will occur.

    • after its release from the ovary the secondary oocyte is swept into the end of the Fallopian tube by the fimbriae.

      • the secondary ooctye is moved along the Fallopian tube by cilia

      • if healthy sperm is present fertilization will occur.

  • after fertilization in the Fallopian tube

    • the secondary oocyte undergoes an uneven division again.

      • the cells that retain most of the cytoplasm (nutrients) becomes the ovum.

      • the other cell becomes the second polar body, which deteriorates.

  • if no fertilization occurs, the secondary oocyte will deteriorate within 24 hours and die.

    • the women will then undergo a menstrual cycle.

    IV) Female Reproductive System

    • if no fertilization occurs, the secondary oocyte will deteriorate with 24 hours and die.

      • the women will then undergo a menstrual cycle.

  • along with the development of the secondary sexual characteristics puberty also initiates the menstrual cycle.

  • secondary sexual characteristics in females include:

    • enlarged breasts

    • hair growth in armpits and pubic area

    • wider hips

    • fat deposits around buttocks and hips

    • angle from thigh to ankle is slightly bent

    Iv female reproductive system c menstrual cycle

    IV) Female Reproductive SystemC) Menstrual Cycle

    • the menstrual cycle includes:

      • oogenesis, ovulation, thickening and shedding of the endometrium

    • it can be divided into four distinct phases

      • Flow phase

      • Follicular phase

      • Ovulatory phase

      • Luteal phase


    Iv female reproductive system c menstrual cycle1

    IV) Female Reproductive SystemC) Menstrual Cycle

    • Flow phase

    • Follicular phase

    • Ovulatory phase

    • Luteal phase

  • Flow phase

    • marked by shedding of the endometrium, or menstruation.

    • the only phase of female reproductive cycle that can be determined externally.

      • this is why the flow phase is used to mark the beginning of the cycle.

    • on average five days are required for the uterus to completely shed the endometrium.

    IV) Female Reproductive SystemC) Menstrual Cycle

    • this is why the flow phase is used to mark the beginning of the cycle.

  • on average five days are required for the uterus to completely shed the endometrium.

  • Follicular Phase

    • characterized by the development of the follicles within the ovary.

    • as the follicle develops the hormone estrogen is secreted.

      • estrogen activates the development of secondary sexual characteristics and causes thickening of the endometrium.

    • takes place between days 6 and 13 of the female menstrual cycle.


  • Iv female reproductive system c menstrual cycle3

    IV) Female Reproductive SystemC) Menstrual Cycle

    • estrogen activates the development of secondary sexual characteristics and causes thickening of the endometrium.

  • takes place between days 6 and 13 of the female menstrual cycle.

  • Ovulatory Phase

    • the secondary oocyte bursts from the ovary and follicular cells differentiate into the corpus luteum.

    • Day 14 of the menstrual cycle (on average)


  • Iv female reproductive system c menstrual cycle4

    IV) Female Reproductive SystemC) Menstrual Cycle

    • the secondary oocyte bursts from the ovary and follicular cells differentiate into the corpus luteum.

    • Day 14 of the menstrual cycle.

  • Luteal Phase

    • begins when the corpus luteum starts to develop.

    • occurs between days 15 and 28

      • estrogen levels begin to decline when the oocyte leaves but are restored when the corpus luteum forms.

      • corpus luteum secretes both estrogen and progesterone.

        • progesterone hormone:

          • stimulates the endometrium and prepares the uterus for an embryo

          • inhibits further ovulation

          • inhibits uterine contraction

          • firms the cervix to prevent expulsion of the fetus

    • progesterone hormone:

      • stimulates the endometrium and prepares the uterus for an embryo

      • inhibits further ovulation

      • inhibits uterine contraction

      • firms the cervix to prevent expulsion of the fetus

  • if fertilization does not occur the concentrations of estrogen and progesterone will decrease.

    • the uterus will start to contract (cramps)

      • contraction makes the endometrium pull away from the uterus wall.

      • shedding of the endometrium marks the next flow phase.
