The length of time for a complete menstrual cycle to occur is about: 28 days
A surge of estrogen and progesterone accompany the release of the oocyte from the follicle, a process known as: ovulation
The number of chromosomes present in the mature oocyte is: 23
When an oocyte unites with a sperm, the resulting fertilized oocyte is called the: zygote
Within the uterus, the organ producing hormones and providing a medium for the transfer of nutrients, gases, and waste products between embryonic and maternal bloodstreams is the: placenta
During the first two months after implantation, the developing individual is referred to as an: embryo
The germ layer that develops into the skeletal muscles, cardiac muscles, blood, bone, and other organs is the: mesoderm
The heartbeat begins, ossification takes place in bones, and the body systems are developing during pregnancy in month number: three
