Reproductive system


X-ray & artwork of the female reproductive regions superimposed on the body of a woman. The x-ray shows the pelvic girdle, the ball & socket joints of the hips & the lumbar vertebra (lower) of the spinal column. The central pear-shaped body is the uterus, or womb. On either side of the uterus and attached to it by ovarian ligaments are the two ovaries, where eggs mature. The fallopian tubes which transport eggs from the ovaries to the uterus are headed by flower-shaped structures which guide the eggs into the opening of the tubes. Fertilization of an egg usually occurs in the tube. Once it reaches the uterus the egg implants in the endometrium, or uterine lining.
