Answer:

Female reproductive system in human beings:

1.  Ovaries

o   Two ovaries are present in the pelvic cavity, one on each side of the uterus.

o   Ovaries produce ova which are female gametes.

o   One ovum is released by one ovary every month.

o   Ovaries also secrete female hormones, oestrogen and progesterone.

o   Both the hormones are responsible for the changes in  the female body at the time of puberty.

2.  Oviducts

(Fallopian tube)

o   Two oviducts or fallopian tubes are present. Each close to one ovary.

o   The end of the oviduct is broad and has many finger-like projections.

o   When the egg is released by the ovary, it passes down to the uterus through the oviduct.

3.  Uterus

(Womb)

o   It’s a hollow, pear-shaped, muscular organ.

o   The inner lining of the uterus called endothelium protects and nourishes the developing embryo.

4.  Vagina (Birth canal)

o   The uterus opens into the vagina.

o   The vagina is a muscular, narrow tube.

5.  Vulva
