Learning or teaching female reproductive system needs media. And when you’re talking about media, it’s the best to use a diagram to ease the educational process of the reproductive system. Well, in brief, the female reproductive system is made up of internal organs, including the vagina, uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It is also made up of the external genital organs, including the parts that make up the vulva. All the internal organs are located in the pelvis, which is the lower part of the abdomen between the hip bones. To know more about the details of the anatomy, these following female reproductive system diagrams will be really handful.
In female reproductive system, the cervix is the lower, narrow part of a women’s uterus, or womb. It connects the main body of the uterus to the vagina, or birth canal. Additionally, the cervix is anatomically and histologically distinct from the uterus, and hence we consider it as a separate anatomical structure. In these female reproductive system diagrams, we can have a better look at the structure of the cervix, its vasculature, innervation, functions, and any clinical relevance. Like the ones in the following images.
The cervix in female reproductive system is actually composed of two regions; the ectocervix and the endocervical canal. The ectocervix is the portion of the cervix that projects into the vagina. It is lined by stratified squamous non-keratinized epithelium. While the endocervical canal (or endocervix) is the more proximal, and ‘inner’ part of the cervix. There is also fallopian tube like what can be seen in the diagrams below.
In this post, we also provide you with the unlabeled version of the diagram that can be used as the worksheet for a quiz. All these diagrams are free and printable for you!
