Female reproductive organs. Historical drawings of the female reproductive organs. At top, the birth canal (vagina, dark pink) is seen below the uterus (blue). An embryo develops into a baby in the uterus, from a female sex cell (ovum) that has been fertilised. The ovum is released (ovulated) from one of two ovaries (one seen at upper right, blue), and travels to the uterus in the Fallopian tubes (pink). Post-ovulation ovaries are shown at lower right (sectioned) and left. An inside-out uterus is at lower centre. Two vertical sections through a uterus are at centre left and right. Colour lithograph by Fairland from The Viscera of the Human Body, 1840. Based on drawings by Bagg.
