    In this lecture we are going to look at the female reproductive organs. So we are going to look at numerous structures within the female pelvis and include the vagina, its position and relations to other structures within the pelvis. I will also look at the structure of the vagina itself. We will look at the uterus, again look at the structure, the variations in position the uterus can assume. And also its peritoneal relations in association with the broad ligament. And then we will look at the uterine tubes and the ovaries, their parts. And again the relationship they have with the peritoneum. So the female reproductive organs consist of the uterus, the vagina, the uterine tubes and the ovaries. And together they receive the sperm from the male and they permit fertilization. And then they facilitate the development of the embryo and foetus. So here we have that hemisected view once again of the female pelvis. So we can just orientate ourselves and see some of these structures. And we can see that here we have the anterior aspect of the pelvis and here is the posterior aspect. In the midline we have got the pubic symphysis and as we spoke about in the male lecture, the previous lecture, directly posterior to the pubic symphysis, we have the bladder which we can see here. And then we have the urethra leading from the bladder to the external environment. Now sitting directly posterior to the bladder into the urethra we have the vagina, this muscular fibrous tube that connects the uterus to the outside world. And then sitting on the superior surface of the bladder, we find we have the uterus which we can see here. And then posterior to the vagina we can make out the rectum, most...
