Female reproductive system. Illustration of a human female torso drawn as a glass body, showing the internal reproductive organs. The reproductive organs (in colour) lie within the pelvic cavity. An ova or egg is released at monthly intervals from the pair of ovaries (white). Two fallopian tubes, funnel-shaped with finger-like projections (pink), receive the released egg which may then be fertilised here. The fertilised egg passes through the tube into the uterus. The uterus is a pear- shaped, hollow muscular organ (lower centre) in which the developing embryo implants and grows. It acts as the womb during pregnancy.
