BIOL 1410: Anatomy of the Human Body - Lecture 27: Reproductive System
Female Reproductive System
A) Female Reproductive System: Structures
1) Gonads
ovaries
located in pelvic cavity on lateral sides of uterus
Histology:
o4 layers:
a) Superficial/germinal epithelium
b) Tunica albuginea – fibrous connective tissue
c) Ovarian cortex
ovarian follicles and connective tissue
ofollicles = layer(s) of cells surrounding
immature egg
osupport and protect
osame function as sertoli cells
d) Ovarian medulla
blood
lymph vessels
nerves
connective tissue
held in place by:
a) Ovarian ligament
attaches to uterus
b) Suspensory ligament
attaches to pelvic wall
c) Mesovarium
superior membrane
2) Uterine (Fallopian) Tubes
3 sections:
a) infundibulum
suspended above the ovary
fimbriae  projections of the infundibulum
b) ampulla
middle of the tube
fertilization occurs here
c) isthmus
connects to uterus
Histology:
a) mucosa
Simple columnar epithelium
oCilia and microvilli
omove 2o oocyte or cell mass along

osecretes nutrients
b) muscularis externa
smooth muscle
c) serosa
visceral peritoneum
3) Uterus
hollow organ
3 parts:
a) fundus
above the level of the uterine tubes
b) body
uterine cavity
c) cervix
inferior
narrow
opens into vagina
supportive membranes:
attaches the uterus to the abdominal wall
a) broad ligaments
b) round ligaments
fibrous connective, attaches to anterior wall
c) uterosacral ligaments
peritoneum
attaches to sacrum
histology:
o3 layers:
a) perimetrium
outer layer
visceral peritoneum
b) myometrium
3 layers smooth muscle
c) endometrium
mucous membrane
contains endometrial glands
1. secretes nutrients
2 layers:
i. Stratum functionalis
inner layer
shed monthly during menstruation
ii. Stratum basalis
outer layer
permanent
undergoes mitosis to replace the
functionalis
