Female Reproductive System
The process of giving birth to new ones is known as reproduction. Unicellular creatures reproduce their offspring through cell division. Some lay eggs and some give birth to baby. Females becomes pregnant due to fertilization of sperm and ovum after fertilization. The foetus developed in uterus and it takes birth after some specific time.
Female Reproductive System
The female reproductive organs are classified into two types: internal and external organ. The internal organs play vital role in human reproduction. The internal organ of female are described below:
Vagina is made up of connective, fibrous, and epithelial tissue. It is cannel of 10-15 cm length from opening to the cervix of uterus. The main function of vagina is to receive penis ans sperm during sexual contact, passing blood during menstruation and passing out the baby during delivery.
It is a hollow muscular organ between urinary bladder and rectum. Uterus has three parts. Upper parts is "fundus", middle part is "body" and the lower part is "cervix". It is place where ovum is fertilized and baby is grown. After the puberty, menstruation starts in girls. At that time thick layer of blood is prepared in endometrium. If fertilization takes place foetus develops in the suitable environment of endometrium, otherwise the thick layer of blood crumbles and passes through vagina every month.
The length of Fallopian tube is 10 cm. It ends towards ovary. Main function of Fallopian tube is to transport a ovum to the uterus each month and it is also the place where conception takes place.
There are two ovaries if female. They are made up of connective tissue. Ovary is female gonad which produce oestrogen andprogesterone hormone required for the development of women.

The vagina is about 10 cm long fibro elastic muscular tube which connects the uterus with the external reproductive organ (vulva). It is composed of mucus and fibroblastic connective tissues lying behind the urethra and bladder and in front of the rectum. Its main function is to receive the penis during intercourse and allows menstrual flow and passage for the baby to the outside world.
