Vagina: A muscular passageway that leads from the vulva (external genitalia) to the cervix. Cervix: A small hole at the end of the vagina through which sperm passes into the uterus. Also serves as a protective barrier for the uterus. During childbirth, the cervix dilates (widens) to permit the baby to descend from the uterus into the vagina for birth. Uterus: A hollow organ that houses the baby during pregnancy. During childbirth, the uterine muscles contract to push out the baby. Each month, unless a fetus has been conceived, the uterine wall sheds its lining (see The Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation below). Ovaries: Two organs that produce hormones and store eggs. Each ovary releases one egg per month. Fallopian tubes: Muscular tubes that eggs released from the ovaries must traverse to reach the uterus.
