How Surgery Can Affect the Sex Life of Females with Cancer
Reproduction is the process by which organisms make more organisms like themselves. But even though the reproductive system is essential to keeping a species alive, unlike other body systems, it's not essential to keeping an individual alive. In the human reproductive process, two kinds of sex cells, or gametes GAH-meetz , are involved. The male gamete, or sperm, and the female gamete, the egg or ovum, meet in the female's reproductive system. When sperm fertilizes meets an egg, this fertilized egg is called a zygote ZYE-goat. The zygote goes through a process of becoming an embryo and developing into a fetus. The male reproductive system and the female reproductive system both are needed for reproduction.
The organs and structures of the female reproductive system give women the ability to produce a baby. They do this by producing eggs to be fertilised by sperm from a man. They also provide a place for the baby fetus to grow and develop. Other structures such as the breasts give the mother the ability to feed and nourish a baby after birth.
A woman's reproductive system makes it possible for her to get pregnant and give birth. It includes two ovaries, two fallopian tubes, the uterus, the cervix, and the vagina. Most women can become pregnant starting at puberty. This is when their menstrual cycles begin.
