female reprodcutive system
these structures are composed of a primarey oocyte surrounded by a single layer of sqamous cells
these follicles are larger then the primordial follicles and the primary egg
they are surrounded by several layers of cubodial cells
these follicles develop a fluid filled cavity called the antrum that surrounds the secondary oocyte
these large follicles have a well developed central chanber called the antrum
the granulosa cells surrounds the outside of the antrum
the secondary oocyte is pushed to one side and is surrounded by several alyers of cells
the zona pellucida is glycoprotiein gelatinous covering the oocyte
the corona radiata is a layer of cells that surround the zona pellucida on the inside of the antrum
this is the glandular tissue that develops from the mature follicle after ovulation of the secondary oocyte
these are the priamary reproducuive organs of females
they are located on the posterior wall of the female body cavity in the superior pelvic region
they contain the ovarian follicles that produce secondary oocytes and hormone like estrogen and progesterone
these are small ducts that open into the body cavity near each of the ovaries they extedn from the overies to the uterus
the secondary ooctye or zygote travels from the ovaries through the tubes to the uterus. fertilzation most often occurs in the uterine tubes.
the uterine tuves are alson known as t fallopian tuves or oviducts
the uterine tubes widen into a funnel shaped structure that opens into the body cavity immediately next to the ovary.
the opening of the infundibulum has long and thin feathrer like projections called fimbraie.
these tsrureres facilitate the movement of the secondary oocyte into the uterine tube
this is a thick muscular organ that lies between the uterine tubes and vagina. it is positioned poseterior to the urinary bladder, and anterior to the recutem
the innermost layer of the uterus is called the endometruim and serves as the location of fetal development
this structure is the inferior part of the uterus, immediatley superior to the vagina
this is the tube that extends from theuterus to the outside of the females body
it is the female copulatory organ and is designed to recieve the males penis
it also seves as the channel for childbirth and mensturation
this is the females exteral genitalia
it is composed of four structures
this is a pad of fatty tissue that is superior to the pubic symphysis.
it serves to cushion the pubic symphysis during intercourse
these are a pair of thick folds of skin on either side of the vaginal opening.
they partially protect the vaginal opening and are involved in secual arousal
these are a pair of small fols of skin that lie beneath the labia majora and surround the urtral and vaginal openings
this is a samll progection located between the labia majora just below the mons pubis
it is homologous to the glans penis in males and functions in sexual arousal
