Surface of the Ovaries Surface isn't covered by peritoneum (vessels and ligaments are covered by mesovarium). Surface of the ovary is covered by simple cuboidal epithelium, it's scarred in older women.
Ovarian Blood Supply & Drainage BS: ovarian a. from abdominal aorta.VD: ovarian v. (Right directly to IVC) & (Left to left renal v.).
Ovaries 2 parts: Medulla & Cortex. Ovaries are attached to the Uterus by means of the ovarian ligament. Suspensory l. contains ovarian a. and v. Produces estrogen when stimulated by FSH from the pituitary gland & produces ovum in a process called Oogenesis
Oogenesis Process of producing ovum. Meiosis of oocytes is stopped in fetal life (frozen @ primary oocyte). Meiosis continues in oocyte that will become the ovum released. A Graafian follicle is a large, mature prior to rupture.
Uterus Place where fetus implants and grows, & It can extend as high as T9 near the end of pregnancy. The Uterus has 3 layers; Endometrium, Myometrium, & Peritoneum. The vaginal portion of uterus is by stratified squamous non-keratinizing epithelium.
Dynamic Support of Uterus is provided by the pelvic diaphragm
Blood Supply, Venous Drainage, Passive/Mechanical Support, & Innervation of the Uterus BS: uterine a. (from int. iliac a.) and ovarian a. VD: uterine v. (from int. iliac v.) and ovarian v. Passive/Mechanical is support antroversion (90 degree). Innervated by pelvic splanchnic n.: S2-S4 (symp. and parasymp.).
Testes Each is covered by tunica albuginea, & left is lower than the right. They produces spermatozoa (envelops it) & secrete male androgens (aka testosterone) via Leydig cells. They also secrete inhibin to regulate the previous these two processes.
Fallopian Tubes Located intraperitoneal in the mesosalpinx. 4 parts: Infundibulum, Ampulla, Isthmus, & Uterine part. Interior of the tube is covered by simple high columnar ciliated epithelium that produces fluid for egg nutrition (fluid has current produced by Ciliae).
Penis 3 Cylindrical parts: 2 corpora cavernosa (erectile tissues) & 1 corpus spongiosum. Tunica albuginea (fibrous capsule) covers corpora cavernosas. 3 mechanisms: ejaculation, emission & erection.
Myometrium The middle layer of the uterus. It's the smooth muscle layer of the uterus.
Endometrium The inner most layer. The mucosa which makes up the endometrium, is made out of simple high columnar epithelium.
Peritoneum The outer most layer of the uterus. It covers the Myometrium from the outside.
Opening of External Os (part of uterus) is round in a female who hasn’t had children, & transverse after childbirth.
Sertoli Cells Support the production spermatozoa in seminiferous tubules, by enveloping them, & by supporting them to maturation.
Blood Supply, & Venous Drainage of Testes BS: testicular/gonadal a. (from abdominal aorta). VD: pampiniform plexus (thermoregulator) to testicular v., L. testicular v. to left renal v. & R. testicular v. to IVC.
Blood Supply, Venous Drainage, & Innervation of the Fallopian tubes BS: ovarian a. (from abdominal aorta), uterine a. (from int. iliac a.). VD: ovarian v., uterine v., R. uterine v. drains to IVC & L. uterine v. drains into the l. renal v. Innervated by the pelvic splanchnic nerves S2-S4 (symp. and parasymp.).
Uterine part of the Fallopian Tubes (intramural) Short & runs through the uterus into the uterine cavity.
Isthmus of the Fallopian Tubes Connects the ampulla to the uterine part.
Infundibulum of the Fallopian Tubes Is open & has fingerlike structures called the fimbria. It opens into the peritoneal cavity at the fimbria.
Ampulla of the Fallopian Tubes Site of fertilization, has longitudinal grooves to help guide the ovum, & is the widest part.
Ciliae of Glandular Cells in the Fallopian Tubes Produces a current in fluid that helps with spermatozoa distribution & egg migration.
Erection Innervated by the pelvic splanchnic n. (parasymp). Helicine a. relaxes & blood rushes in, blood fills corpus cavernosa (tunica albuginea tightened), bulbospongiosus & ischiocavernosus contract, (contraction prevents outflow of blood).
Emission This mechanism is innervated by L1-L2 (symp). After being stimulated, the ductus deferens and seminal vesicles deliver semen to prostatic urethra by mean of peristalsis.
Ejaculation Ejaculation is contolled by the contraction of the urethral m. (S2-S4, parasymp). Accompanied by the contraction of the bulbospongiosus m. via somatic n. (S2-S4, pudendal n.). The Symp. n. leads to the closure of the int. urethral sphincter.
Prepuce (foreskin) The prolongation of the skin & fascia of the penis extended as a double layer over the glans penis. This may be removed in a process called circumcision.
Flaccidity of Penis after Ejaculation Occurs when the helicine a. contract so blood leaves (symp.).
Vagina Covered by Stratified nonkeratinizing squamous epithelium, with almost no glands in the epithelium. Vaginal secretion is from cervix, & Bartholin’s glands. Vaginal environment is acidic to protect from infections &/or microbes (pH 4-4.5).
Blood Supply of the Vagina uterine, vaginal, & int. pudendal arteries
Fornix of Vagina The lower part of the cervix that protrudes into the vagina. The bladder can be palpated through the ant. fornix in vaginal examination. The rectouterine (Douglas) pouch, rectum, & vertebrae can be palpated through the post. fornix in vaginal examination.
Menstrual Cycle Each cycle leads to one the release of one ovum. This doesn't occur if pregnant, after menopause, pre-puberty, or severely malnutritioned. Usually 28 days, counting starts from the first day of bleeding. Divided into phases.
Secretion Phase (Days 15-28) Controlled by Progesterone, mucus & blood vessels increase. At the end of this phase, progesterone decreases and arteries contract due to drying, ischemia follows & tissue damage & bleeding starts again.
Phase of Proliferation (Days 5-15) Controlled by Estrogen. Body temperature increases. Functional layer grows, glands get bigger, spiral arteries form. Ovulation occurs around day 13-14.
Phase of Desquamation and Regeneration [menstruation] (Days 1-4) Progesterone disappears & Estrogens Increases. Endometrium is shed (bleeding). Epithelium & connective tissue of the functional layer regenerate from the basal layer & the wound is closed.
Salpingitis Inflammation (pelvic inflammatory disease, PID) and infection (gonorrhea and clamydial) of the Fallopian tubes, may lead to loss of the epithelium, this may interfere with fertilization which may lead to sterility.
Ischemia restriction of blood supply to tissues
Luteal Phase [2nd half of menstrual cycle (secretory phase)] Progesterone increases which causes endometrial layer growth.
Follicular Phase [1st half of menstrual cycle (menstruation & proliferation phase)] Estrogen Increases. Gonadotropin Hormones (FSH & LH) of the piturary gland act on the follicles of the ovary to maturate (then to release the ovum in the middle of the cycle).
