Internal Female Reproductive Organs

• The cervix is the opening of the uterus; it separates the vagina from the uterus.

• The uterus—also called the womb—is a pear-shaped organ that holds the pregnancy; when you are not pregnant, the lining of the uterus is what's shed each month during your menstrual blood flow.

• The fallopian tubes are two delicate hollow tubes that run from either side of the uterus and toward each of the ovaries; this is where conception occurs.

• The ovaries are two almond-sized glands on either side of the uterus; filled with eggs, they also produce estrogen and progesterone.
