Uterus and ovaries (English)

Uterus and ovaries (English)

A cross-section of the ovary is shown on the right, with the ovarian follicles in different stages of maturation. When a follicle has matured, it undergoes ovulation and releases an egg (ovum) into the uterine tube. Each uterine tube is made up of 4 parts - the infundibulum, ampulla (where eggs are usually fertilized), isthmus and the intramural part. The uterus has 3 layers - the endometrium, myometrium, and the perimetrium. The uterus, uterine tubes and ovaries are supported by various ligaments, including the uterosacral ligament inferiorly, the ovarian ligament laterally, the suspensory ligament and the broad ligament of uterus. The most prominent of them is the broad ligament of uterus, which is subdivided into 3 components - the mesometrium, mesosalpinx and mesovarium.
