The human reproductive system is complex and to understand the overall system, you have to study both the male and female reproductive organs. This time we have a set of printable uterus diagram provided for you to use as your visual aid in studying the female reproductive organ. The following uterus diagrams are provided to help you learn about the anatomy of the reproductive system organs along with the labels and a brief explanation of the function. Check out below and click on one image to enlarge and save it!
The uterus is one organ that takes part in the female reproductive system. It is shaped like an upside-down pear and has thick walls. The uterus’s main function is to house and nourish a fetus until it’s ready for birth. The corpus is the main body of the uterus. It’s very muscular and can stretch to accommodate a developing fetus. When a woman is pregnant, it is their uterus that is expanding. Now study the parts of the uterus provided in the uterus diagrams below.
The corpus or the main body of the uterus is lined by a mucous membrane called the endometrium. This membrane responds to reproductive hormones by changing its thickness during each menstrual cycle. If an egg is fertilized, it attaches to the endometrium. On the other hand, if there is no fertilization, the endometrium sheds its outer layer of cells, which are released during menstruation. All parts mentioned above, can you spot them all in the diagram of uterus below?
With the help of this diagram as your visual aid, we hope that you can understand the parts and functions of the uterus. Now with these diagrams, who is ready to take Biology test and work on some uterus diagram worksheets? Click on any of these muscles diagrams for a quick print!
