The system of organs involved in producing offspring
1. It produces female sex hormones and stores female reproductive cells (ova).
2. The uterus nourishes and protects the fertilized ovum from conception until birth.
- Female sex glands that store the ova and produce female sex hormones.
At birth a female’s ovaries contain more than 400,000 immature eggs (ova).
-A muscular elastic passageway that extends from the uterus to the outside of the body. This is where menstrual blood, vaginal fluids and baby leave the body.
Inside the Womb
If the egg doesn\'t get fertilized, that lining is released from the body through the vagina. This is called menstruation.
(Menstruation is part of the menstrual cycle)
- A cycle is counted from the first day of one period to the first day of the next period.
