The reproductive system

  1. 1. The study of the female reproductive system is the medical specialty of GYNECOLOGY
  2. 2. The time required for the development of a fetus is called GESTATION.
  3. 3. The dilation stage is the first stage of labor and occurs when the uterine muscle contracts strongly to expel the fetus.
  4. 4. The second stage of labor is the expulsion stage. This begins when the cervix is completely dilated to 10 cm and ends with the delivery of the baby.
  5. 5. The last stage of labor is the placental stage. After childbirth, the uterus continues to contract, causing the placenta to be expelled through the vagina.
