The Woman’s Reproductive System

               Egg Production And The Ovaries

               The Miraculous Process That Culminates In The Birth Of A Child Begins Before The Mother Is Even Born. All The Eggs That A Woman Will Produce Throughout Her Adult Life Exist, In Very Rudimentary Form, In The Ovaries Of The Embryo. In Fact, The Most Eggs A Woman Will Ever Have Is In The Fifth Month Of Pregnancy, When The Female Embryo Has About 4,00,000 Very Immature Egg Cells. By The Time The Baby Girls Is Born This Number Has Fallen To About 2,00,000 And Keeps On Falling, Until At Puberty, There Are Only About 4,00,000. Each Very Immature Egg Is Contained In An Outer Shell, Or Follicle, In The Woman’s Ovaries, With Half The Genetic Material Needed To Create A New Person. When The Girls Is About Nine Years Old, Her Hormonal System Changes To Start Up Her Reproductive System. In Her Early Teens These Changes Result In The Production And Release Of Mature Eggs. In Response To The Woman’s Hormonal System, Up To 1000 Follicles Start To Develop Each Month. Only One Will Reach Maturity, And Early In The Process It Becomes Dominant. The Rest Stop Growing, Wither Away, And The Eggs Within Them Are Lost. The Dominant Follicle Develops Further Until Ultimately It Releases An Egg To Start Its Journey Through The Woman’s Reproductive System. What Is Left Of The Follicle Remains In The Ovary, Changing Into A Small Cyst Known As The Corpus Luteum , Which Literally Means Yellow Body. It Plays A Key Role In Creating The Best Possible Conditions For Pregnancy.
                        The Fallopian Tube Was First Identified By Scientists In The Early Nineteenth Century, And The First Attempts Ware Made To Remedy Blocked Tubes Some 50 Years Later. However, It Is Only Recently That There Has Been A Real Understanding Of The Importance Of Fallopian Tubes In The Process Of Human Reproduction. They Stretch From Either Side Of The Womb To The Ovaries Where They End In Tiny Finger Life Fimbria Which Reach Around Each Ovary To Collect The Eggs. They Are Little More Than Four And A Half Inches Long And Minute In Diameter. Yet It Is Inside These Tiny Tubes That The Human Egg And Sperm Meet. Fertilization Takes Place And The Newly Fertilized Egg Is Nurtured. And It Is While Traveling Down Them On The Way To The Womb That The Foundation For A New Human Life Are Laid. The Fallopian Tube Actively Assists In The Process. It Produces A Lubricating Fluid And Tiny Hairs Inside Each Tube Beat More The N1000 Times A Minute To Help The Egg And Once The Egg Is Fertilized The Developing Embryo Move Donw Into The Womb.
