  12. 12. The Purpose of the Uterus The uterus is a hollow, pear-shaped muscular organ in the female reproductive system. During pregnancy the uterus grows to accommodate a growing embryo. Every month the uterus builds up a layer of blood on its inside walls to feed a baby . If the woman does not get pregnant the uterus releases the blood out of the vagina . If a woman gets pregnant the baby will grow inside the uterus until it is ready to be born. It protects and feeds the baby throughout the pregnancy. How does the Uterus work Back to contents

The Purpose of the Scrotum The function of the scrotum is to produce sperm and keep the testis at a temperature slightly lower than that of the rest of the body as the sperm dies when it is kept too warm . How does the Scrotum work When the whether is cool , the scrotum tightens to bring the testicles closer to the body, and when the weather gets warmer the scrotum loosen to hang the testicles further away from the body.

Cervical Cancer Cervical Cancer forms in tissues of the cervix (the organ connecting the uterus and vagina) The difference between cancer cells and normal cells is that cancer cells can invade (grow into) other tissues .
