1
Introduction to Sex Education
2
The Female Reproductive System
  • Human Sexuality Unit
  • Lesson 1

3
Puberty
  • Stage of growth and development when both the
    male and female body become capable of producing
    offspring

4
Puberty in Females
  • Estrogen
  • Hormone produced by the ovaries
  • Stimulates development of secondary sex
    characteristics
  • Affects menstrual cycle
  • Secondary sex characteristics
  • Physical and emotional changes

5
Physical Changes of Puberty
  • Occur between 8-15 years
  • Maturing process affected by
  • Heredity
  • Diet
  • Health habits
  • Health status

6
Female Secondary Sex Characteristics
  • Increase in height
  • Widening of the hips
  • Softer and smoother skin
  • Increase in breast size
  • Growth of pubic and underarm hair
  • Enlargement of external genitals
  • Formation of mature ova
  • Beginning of menstruation

7
Female Reproductive System
  • Organs in female involved in producing offspring
  • External vulva
  • Mons veneris
  • Labia majora and labia minora
  • Clitoris
  • Hymen

8
Vulva
  • Mons veneris
  • Fatty tissue covering/protecting pubic bone and
    internal reproductive organs
  • Labia majora
  • Heavy folds of skin surrounding opening of vagina
  • Labia minora
  • Two smaller folds of skin located within the
    labia majora

9
Vulva
  • Clitoris
  • Small, highly sensitive structure above the
    opening of urethra
  • Hymen
  • Thin membrane stretches across opening of vagina

11
Internal Female Reproductive Organs
  • Ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Uterus
  • Cervix
  • Vagina

12
Internal Reproductive Organs
  • Ovaries
  • Female reproductive glands
  • Produce ova and estrogen
  • Born with 200,000-400,000 immature ova
  • About 375 will mature and be released
  • Developing ova are enclosed in a small, hollow
    ball called a follicle
  • Each month, an ovum matures and is released from
    follicle

13
Internal Reproductive Organs
  • Ovulation
  • Release of mature ovum from one of the two
    ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • 4-inch tube connecting the ovaries and uterus
  • Females have two
  • During menstrual cycle, a mature ovum travels
    through to uterus
  • Fertilization usually occurs here

14
Internal Reproductive Organs
  • Uterus
  • Muscular organ receives and supports a
    fertilized egg during pregnancy
  • Contracts during childbirth
  • Cervix
  • Lowest part of the uterus
  • Connects uterus to vagina
  • Tiny hole

15
Internal Reproductive Organs
  • Vagina
  • Muscular tube connects uterus to outside of
    body
  • Female organ for sexual intercourse, birth canal
    in childbirth, and passageway for menstrual flow

17
Menstrual Cycle
  • Monthly series of changes in female
  • Involves ovulation, changes in uterine lining,
    and menstruation
  • Menstruation
  • Period when unfertilized egg and lining of the
    uterus leave the body in a menstrual flow
  • Described as period

18
Menstrual Cycle
  • Cycle occurs over 28 days will vary from each
    female
  • Average menstrual flow is 5 days

19
The Menstrual Cycle
  • Days 1-5
  • Menstrual flow leaves the body
  • Consists of 2 ounces of blood and uterine lining
  • New ova is maturing in ovary
  • Days 6-12
  • Uterine lining begins to thicken
  • Preparing for possibility of ovum being
    fertilized
  • Days 13-14
  • Ovulation occurs
  • Ovum is released into Fallopian tube
  • Days 15-20
  • Secretion of progesterone (hormone that changes
    lining of uterus)
  • Days 21-28
  • If ovum is not fertilized, secretion of
    progesterone stops
  • Cells in uterus lining die
  • Unfertilized ovum disintegrates or leaves through
    menstrual flow

20
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
  • Physical and emotional symptoms affecting females
    7-10 days prior to menstruation
  • Symptoms
  • Weight gain
  • Bloating
  • Swollen breasts
  • Headaches
