If you don 't make any insulin, which is the case for people with type one diabetes, your blood sugar levels can get dangerously high and if the body makes some insulin but not enough, that is type two diabetes. The ovaries are found only in women. They make the hormones estrogen and progesterone which help develop breasts at puberty, regulate the menstrual cycle, and support a pregnancy. The last gland in the endocrine system are the testes. The testes play a large role in making testosterone and also in making
In some cases, the manufactured oxytocin is given to women in order to make the contraction stronger, o to start labour if it isn’t able to start naturally in time. Also, manufactured oxytocin is in some cases given to women in order to speed up the procces of the delivery in the placenta, and to make the risk of heavy bleeding smaller by stimulating the uterus to have contractions. In addition, oxytocin increases the milk flow into the breast whilst breastfeeding, allowing the milk to be ejected from the nipple. Oxytocin is found not only in women, but in men as well, it plays the role of the sperm’s movement. Recently, it has been suggested that oxytocin has a vast impact on our social behaviour.
Women who do have Rh factor are classified as Rh positive (A+, B+, AB+ and O+) and women who don’t are Rh negative (A-, B-, AB- and O). The blood type and Rh factor of a pregnant woman and the father of her baby can affect what blood type the baby has. It will also influence the antibodies the mother’s body makes as an immune response to foreign matter in her body such as bacteria, sperm and even an embryo. When an Rh negative woman (5-10 per cent of women) has a
Female Reproductive System The menstrual cycle is a natural recurring cycle of physiological (physical and psychological i.e., body and mind) changes in females of reproductive-age. The cyclic changes happen in the female reproductive system. First, in the ovaries, ovulation is marked by a breakdown in the wall of the follicle at the surface of the ovary. After ovulation, during the secretory phase, the theca cells and the granulosa cells in the mature follicle transform to produce significant amount of progesterone hormones into the blood and into the follicle, which is called a corpus luteum. The goal of this hormone production is to prepare and maintain the uterine lining for implantation in the event of fertilization.
IVF can result in Overian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. In ivf, ovaries of intended mother (or egg donor) are stimulated to produce more than 1 high quality eggs. The hormones and drugs used to stimulate ovaries, can have side effects leading to condition called overian hyperstimulation syndrome 3. Ectopic pregnancy : IVF can lead to Ectopic pregnancy in which the pregnancy occurs outside the uterus 4. IVF success rates are much lower than 100%.
Abstinence-until-marriage — and faithfulness after marriage — not only protects against sexually transmitted diseases, it gives young people a stronger platform from which to pursue their dreams and goals”. While this may make sense in the eyes of the unpronounced author, dropout rates from teen pregnancy differ. The Center for Disease Control states, “Pregnancy and birth are significant contributors to high school dropout rates among girls. Only about 50% of teen mothers receive a high school diploma by 22 years of age, whereas approximately 90% of women who do not give birth during adolescence graduate from high school” (“Reproductive Health: Teen Pregnancy” ). This shows that even though abstinence education is not doing a correct job, due to the fact that teens still have intercouse, and are left off worse due to lack of education and birth control.
The gastric acids which are present in the emesis, erode the enamel on the inner surface of the tooth. Commonly the first tooth. Gastric acids will only be a major concern for women that are bulimics and in patients with Hyperemesis Gravidum. Increased Gonadotropins which is caused by sex hormones,
Part 1: Normal Endometrial Thickness in Menstrual Cycle The endometrium normally changes in thickness and appearance throughout your menstrual cycle. These changes are associated with the hormonal changes that occur during the cycle. Early in the menstrual cycle, estrogen, which is produced by the ovaries, causes the uterine lining to grow, to prepare the

It is suggested that expectant mothers should receive at least four antenatal visits to doctor to keep an eye on the health of mother and developing foetus.
