Female Reproductive System: Front ViewHere Is A Brief Explanation Of The Female Reproduction Organs

We want to make sure all of our patients are educated as much as possible. We have provided a brief overview and diagram of the female reproductive organs.

The main female reproductive organs are the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and vagina. The uterus, a hollow muscular organ about 3 inches long located deep inside the pelvic cavity is home to the developing fetus.

The neck of the uterus (cervix) projects into the vagina, a muscular tube about 4 inches long that receives the penis and sperm and serves as the birth canal.

The fallopian tubes, a pair of structures each about 4 inches long, join the uterus near the top. Their flared ends lie near the ovaries (almond-shaped glands) that produce ova (eggs) and female hormones.

After an ovum is expelled into the pelvic cavity, it passes through a fallopian tube into the uterus. If the egg has been fertilized by a sperm, it implants in the uterus and gestation begins.
