This is the uterus!
The uterus, also called the womb, is a hollow, pear-shaped organ in the pelvis. This is where a fertilized egg will implant and develop into a fetus before birth.
This is the ureter!
The ureter carries urine from the kidneys to the bladder.
This is the anus!
The anus is the opening of the rectum, where feces can exit. It’s also the point of entry for anal insertion.
UrethraFallopian tubeVas deferensUterine artery
This is the fallopian tube!
The fallopian tubes are slender ducts that transport eggs from the ovary to the uterus. In most females, there is one fallopian tube on either side of the uterus.
This is the cervix!
The cervix is the long, narrow lower end of the uterus that forms a little canal between the uterus and the vagina. It allows blood from a menstrual period and a baby during birth to pass into the vaginal canal.
This is the vagina!
The vagina is a long, muscular canal that extends to the outside of the body. This is what's involved during vaginal penetration (with a penis, dildo, fingers, etc.). It is also where menstrual blood and a baby pass through to exit the body.
This is the bladder!
The bladder is a hollow sac that collects and holds urine until it's released during urination.
Labia majoraPubic boneCorpus cavernosumEpididymis
This is the pubic bone!
The pubic bone is the front part of the pelvis and it helps give structure to the internal reproductive organs.
This is an ovary!
The ovary is a reproductive gland where the unfertilized eggs, or ova, are formed. A woman usually has two ovaries — one on either side of the uterus.
This is the urethra!
The urethra is a long tube that carries urine from the bladder outside of the body through a small hole.
Bartholin's glandUrethraClitorisLubricant duct
This is the clitoris!
The clitoris is the female erectile organ, packed with thousands of nerve endings. While the external bulb of the clitoris can be seen under the clitoral hood, research indicates that these nerve endings actually extend under the skin along either side of the vulva.
This is the endometrium!
The endometrium is a mucous membrane which lines the uterus, the innermost layer of the uterine wall. It thickens and sheds each month to produce a menstrual period. It's also where a fertilized egg attaches so it can grow in the womb.
Ovarian arteriesFallopian tube tailOvumPampiniform plexus
These are the ovarian arteries!
These are the blood vessels which carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the ovaries so they can function.
OvumCorpus cavernosaFolliclesOvarian cysts
These are follicles!
Follicles are small cyst-like structures which grow every month in the ovaries. They produce the hormone estrogen and eventually release an egg during ovulation.
Corpus luteumOvum sacsSeminal vesiclesCervical lymph nodes
This is the corpus luteum!
The corpus luteum develops temporarily in the ovary after an egg or ovum has been released by the follicle. It secretes the hormone progesterone and also estrogen — but it will disappear in a few days unless pregnancy happens. If an egg is fertilized, the corpus luteum will stay and release hormones which help the egg implant in the uterus so it can grow into a fetus.
Corpus cavernosumLabia minoraLabia majoraHymen
This is the labia minora!
The labia minora are the inner folds which surround the opening of the vagina. They protect the vaginal opening and they're also full of nerve endings.
This is the vulva!
The vulva is actually the name for all the external genitalia, including the vaginal opening and the labia (though it's often mistakenly called “the vagina," which is the internal structure). Vulvas come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors — and they're all beautiful!
