Caption: Female reproductive system. Coloured X-ray of the human female torso, with an artwork representation of the reproductive organs. The reproductive organs lie within the pelvic cavity. At monthly intervals an ovum or egg is released from one of the ovaries (two glands each about 3cm long, here coloured pink). Adjacent to each ovary is a fallopian tube (blue), which carries the egg to the uterus, and in which fertilisation may occur. The uterine cavity (red triangle) is the hollow area in which the fertilised egg implants and grows into a foetus. If the egg is unfertilised it will pass out of the uterus via the vagina (red oval, below uterus).
