Chapter Fourteen Female Reproductive System

OVERVIEW OF THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

The female reproductive system consists of the two ovaries, the uterine tubes, a single uterus, vagina, and the vaginal orifice. The uterus is held to the anterior body by the round ligaments and held to the pelvic wall by the suspensory ligaments. Blood flows to the ovaries by the gonadal arteries.

The breasts are integumentary structures and each one has mammary glands, the areola, and the nipple. Label the structures of the female reproductive system and color each of them in a different color.
