Anatomy of Female Pelvic Area


Anatomy of the female pelvic area

  • Endometrium. The lining of the
    uterus.

  • Uterus. Also called the womb,
    the uterus is a hollow, pear-shaped organ located in a woman’s lower abdomen, between
    the bladder and the rectum.

  • Ovaries. Two female reproductive
    organs located in the pelvis.

  • Fallopian tubes. Carry eggs from
    the ovaries to the uterus.

  • Cervix. The lower, narrow part
    of the uterus (womb) located between the bladder and the rectum. It forms a canal
    that opens into the vagina, which leads to the outside of the body.

  • Vagina. The passageway through
    which fluid passes out of the body during menstrual periods. It’s also called the
    “birth canal.” The vagina connects the cervix (the opening of the womb, or uterus)
    and the vulva (the external genitalia).

  • Vulva. The external portion of
    the female genital organs.
