Human Sexual Reproduction - Females Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Fallopian tube (or oviduct) Ovary Uterus Fimbriae Cervix Uterine Wall Vagina
  • 2. Sexual Reproduction Females Cervix: a ring of muscular tissue at the junction of the Vagina and the Uterus to protect the uterus from disease. Fallopian Tubes: The tubes that carry the ovum to the uterus. Generally the site of fertilization of ovum. Fimbriae: The structure that "catches" or guides the ovum into the fallopian tube.
  • 3. Sexual Reproduction Females Hymen: A protective tissue that closes off the vagina to the outside environment. Labia majora: Large lips. Protective tissues that cover the vagina. Labia minora: Minor lips Ovulation: Release of ovum from ovary.
  • 4. Sexual Reproduction Females Ovum : The egg that is released during ovulation, and if the egg is fertilized pregnancy results. Ovary: The organ that stores the female eggs. Uterus: The organ that houses the embryo after egg fertilization. Vulva: The external parts of the vagina.
  • 5. SEX HORMONES IN HUMANS. Oestrogen : Influences growth of the reproductive organs, breasts, and secondary sex characteristics, such as fat distribution, voice pitch, broad pelvis and hair pattern. Progesterone : Acts on the uterus lining preparing it for pregnancy. If fertilization occurs the corpus luteum persists to produce this hormone. If fertilization does not occur the ovum and the corpus luteum break down. This leads to low levels of the hormone in the blood and menstruation follows.
  • 6. SEX HORMONES IN HUMANS. Luteinising Hormone (LH) : Pituitary hormone that causes a follicle to rupture and then become the corps luteum. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) : hormone produced by the pituitary gland, that stimulates the growth of ovarian follicles and the ripening of an ovum.
