Transcript of The Female Reproductive System
Reproductive System The Body System
Production of eggs
Production of female sex hormones Parts of the Body System
Vagina: A canal that joins the cervix to the outside of the body(the birth canal)
Uterus: A hollow, pear shaped organ that is the home of the developing fetus.
Ovaries: small, oval-shaped glands that are located on both sides of the uterus. They store eggs and release them during the menstrual cycle.
Fallopian Tubes: narrow tubes attached to the upper part of the uterus. They serve as pathways for egg cells to travel from the ovaries to the uterus.
Cervix: the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina. Fun Facts
The largest cell in a female’s body is the egg.
A female is born with all the eggs she will ever have, which is around 2 million.
While in the womb, a baby’s body is covered with a thin layer of hair. This disappears as soon as the baby is born.
A female’s body is capable of giving birth to 35 children in her life. Citations

Karina Dominguez Cervical cancer
What is it? Cancer that forms in tissues of the cervix.
How do you get it? It is caused by the human papillomavirus infection (HPV). You can get HPV through skin-to-skin genital contact with anyone that has HPV.
Prevention? Get vaccinated, get regular Pap tests (to detect abnormal cells on the cervix), and try not to have genital contact with another person.
Treatment? Treatment options include surgery, such as a hysterectomy, Chemotherapy, and Radiation Therapy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptCW_W07pzk
