The female reproductive system

The female reproductive system is made up of 5 organs


The female reproductive system includes the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries.

  • Uterus (womb)

The uterus is a hollow pear-shaped organ in the middle of your pelvis where a baby develops. The uterus lining builds up ready for implantation and breaks down and sheds during a period when you are not pregnant.

  • Cervix

The cervix is the lower part of the uterus, the neck of the womb which opens into the vagina.

  • Vagina

The vagina is a muscular tube which connects the cervix to outside the body. The vagina is also known as the birth canal.

  • Ovaries

Ovaries are small, oval-shaped glands that are located on either side of the uterus. They produce eggs and hormones.

  • Fallopian tubes

Fallopian tubes are small tubes attached to the top of the uterus. An egg released from the ovary travels down the fallopian tube to the uterus.
