The infant is delivered during the second stage of labor known as the __________ stage. expulsion
The follicle-cell capsule surrounding an ovulated secondary oocyte is called the? corona radiata
What is the role of the follicle-stimulating hormone? stimulates the development of a primary follicle (oocytes)
The narrow outlet of the uterus that protrudes into the vagina is the? cervix
