Female Reproductive Anatomy
To follow along: take notes in your notebook on the function of each part.Fill out the lines on the worksheet.
Front view of the female reproductive system.
Vagina: the opening to the outside of her body. Inside the body, it connects to theuterus.
Vagina
Ovaries
Eggs and estrogen (the female hormone) are produced here.Usually, they take turns ovulating: the monthly release of an egg.Estrogen causes a girl’s body to develop into a woman’s.
Vagina
Ovary
Fallopian tubes
When an egg is released, it travels down to the uterus through the fallopian tubes.If an egg gets fertilized, this is where it will happen.

Fallopian tubes
Uterus
This is where a baby develops.Colloquially called the “womb.”If the egg was not fertilized in the fallopian tubes, it will be shed, along with the lining of the uterus, during her monthly period.

Uterus
Cervix
The neck of uterus.This is where a doctor or nurse would collect cells during a Pap Test. They are looking for changes in the cells that might mean a cancer would develop.They can usually remove the cells long before they would become cancer.

Having a baby
After the baby has developed for nine months in the uterus, it usually comes out through the vagina (except in the case of ac-section).

Side view of female reproductive anatomy.
A woman has three openings in her private parts.In the front is theurethra, where urine (“pee”) comes out. It is attached to thebladder.In the middle is thevagina, where her period comes out (or a baby!)The third opening is theanus, where a bowel movement comes out.
urethra
bladder
vagina
anus
Labia
Two folds of skin that protect the openings to the urethra and the vagina.

Clitoris
In the front, where the labia meet.A cluster of sensitive nerve endings.This can become erect, like a penis, but it is very small.

Quizcomin’ up!
You have a quiz on Friday of both male and female reproductive anatomy.You will be asked to identify parts and functions of both.It may have the front view or the side view.The Quizlet set has been updated to have both male and female terms.Alternatively, you could use this time to work on the MESAS Science Contest.
