The reproductive system is the part of the body involved in sexual function. In women, this system is also responsible for nourishing and supporting a baby as it develops. Below are the main parts of the female reproductive anatomy.
A. Ovaries store eggs (female reproductive cells). About once a month, an egg is released from an ovary. This is called ovulation.
B. Fallopian tubes carry eggs to the uterus. Pregnancy occurs if a man's sperm fertilizes an egg as it moves through the tube.
C. The uterus is a hollow, muscular, pear-shaped organ. If an egg has been fertilized, the embryo implants in the lining of the uterus where it grows into a baby.
D. The cervix isthe narrow canal where the uterus and vagina meet.
E. The vagina isthe pathway that connects the uterus with the outside of the body.
