fundus, body, and cervix


attached to both the fallopian tubes and vagina


endometrium and myometrium


skin-covered muscular region between the vaginal orifice and the anus

Fallopian tubes

also called the oviducts


the growing fetus lives here for 9 months

External genitals

mons pubis, labia, and clitoris; also called the vulva


female gonads


graafian follicle and corpus luteum


target of FSH and LH

Interstitial cells

cells that secrete testosterone


coiled tubular structure that sits on top of the testes; site of sperm maturation

Seminiferous tubules

cells that produce sperm


copulatory organ


target of FSH and LH


proximal end of this structure is surrounded by the prostate gland


the sac or pouch that holds the testicles


the foreskin; it gets circumcised

Vas deferens

tubular structure that extends from the epididymis to the ejaculatory duct (pelvic cavity)


the tip of this structure contains the urinary meatus

The seminiferous tubules

are tightly coiled structures that produce sperm

This structure carries both urine and sperm


This state is caused by the filling of erectile tissue with blood


Which of the following is least characteristic of testosterone

secreted by the prostate gland


refers to the movement of sperm and glandular secretions from the testes and genital ducts into the urethra

Interstitial cell-stimulating hormone

stimulates the testicular cells to secrete testosterone

The embryo

implamts within the uterus

The fundus forms the upper part of this structure


The corpus luteum

lives on the ovary

This hormone promotes the maturation of the egg and helps develop the female characteristics


Which of the following is least characteristis of prgesterone

is secreted by the anterior pituitary gland

A midcycle surge of LH is responsible for


The ovaries and the testes

respond to gonadotropins

Which structure contains 23 chromosomes


Which of the following is true of the vas deferens, ejaculatory duct, and the urethra

carry sperm

the prostate gland

surrounds the upper portion of the urethra and the contributes to the formation of semen

Which of the following is not located in or on the ovary

fertilized ovum

The cervix, fundus, and body are

parts of the uterus

The fimbriated edge of the fallopian tubes

swoops up the egg at ovulation

The broad ligament

supports the uterus

The oviduct or fallopian tube

is the site of fertilization

The acrosome

contains enzymes that assist the sperm to fertilize an ovum

Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)

is secreted by the anterior pituitary gland

A woman is likely to develop a vaginal yeast infection after taking antibiotics because they

alter the normal flora of the vagina

Ligation of (tying off) the cas deferens

causes sterility

The myometrium

contracts during labor

Estrogen and progesterone are

secreted by the ovaries

In the nonpregnant state

hormonal secretion of the corpus luteum gradually declines

The proliferative phase of the uterine cycle

immediately precedes the uterine secretory phase

An elevation of plasma levels of estrogen and progesterone

prevents the release of FSH and LH
