The ovaries are where the female sex cells are produced. The male reproductive system is made up of 3 main external structure; the penis, scrotum and testicles. The penis is the male organ for sexual intercourse (Cleveland Clinic, 2011).
The fallopian tubes with its finger like projections known as fimbriae sucks the eggs in to the tubes, and in to the ampule the longest part of the tube where fertilisation most commonly takes place. Another crucial structure is that of the uterus, and this is the muscular sack where the embryo grows, and eventually develops in to a baby. Finally the vaginal canal which is where sperm travels up, in order to get to the eggs, and this is attached to the cervix/the neck of the
It is made up of simple columnar epithelium tissue and exocrine cells. Submucosa: composed of loose connective tissue, with larger blood vessels, lymphatic, nerves and can contain mucous secreting glands Muscularispropria: composed of two smooth muscles; the inner which is segmentation and the outer which is peristalsis which allow movement of food through the gut Adventia or serosa: outermost layer composed of loose connective tissue covered by the visceral peritoneum. Contains blood vessels, lymphatics and

The last gland in the endocrine system are the testes. The testes play a large role in making testosterone and also in making
(2013) utilized trans-labial ultrasound for their investigation. The trans-labial scans were performed using the same type of transducer, patient position, and preparation with semi-filled bladders before the scan. The partially filled bladder provided better evaluation of the lower uterine segment for identification of the placenta edge with regard to the inner OS (Elhawaryl et al., 2013). Except for the Pilloni et al.
A neural tube is where the brain and spinal cord form. During the first few weeks of pregnancy, an unborn baby is primarily made entirely of cells. Those cells start forming different body parts, and specific cells form the tube. This tube will go on to become part of the spinal cord, brain, and other structures such as the backbone. The top part of the tube is what the brain becomes, and the rest of the tube converts to the spinal cord.
The First Trimester During the first month of pregnancy the amniotic sac forms around the baby. The amniotic sac is filled with fluids that protect the baby throughout the pregnancy. The placenta will also form doing the first month of pregnancy. The placenta connects to the umbilical cord and will give him or her the nutrients, and will also take away the waste from the baby.
