When an egg from a woman is fertilised by sperm from a man, New life starts. The testicles and ovaries additionally make sex hormonal agents. The female reproductive body organs are the vaginal canal, womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries: Vagina, a muscular canal around 7. 5 centimeters long that prolongs from the neck of the womb to the genital areas, or vulva. These tubes carry the egg from the ovary to the womb. Sex hormonal agents are additionally made by the ovaries. Hormones secreted by the ovaries and a small gland in the brain called the pituitary gland manage the menstrual cycle. It lodges in the womb lining if the egg is fertilised on its journey down the fallopian tube. Falling levels of the hormonal agent progesterone make the womb lining come away if the egg is unfertilised. When you intend to have a baby you can improve your chance of getting pregnant if you understand about ovulation and the fertile home window' in the menstrual cycle.
