    Transcript

    00:01 To wrap up our lecture on the physiology of the female reproductive system.

    00:06 We recall that in the female reproductive physiology gamete formation is referred to as oogenesis.

    00:15 The process of oogenesis occurs in the ovaries and is referred to as the ovarian cycle.

    00:23 The product of oogenesis is the ovum which is ovulating from the ovary wall.

    00:30 The ovarian cycle is regulated by hypothalamic and pituitary gonadotropins, as well as estrogen and progesterone.

    00:41 Along with the ovaries the lining of the uterus the endometrium also goes through a cycle.

    00:48 This cycle is referred to as the uterine or menstrual cycle.

    00:53 The events of the ovarian cycle in the ovaries and the uterine cycle in the uterus are a coordinated processes.

    01:02 The female sexual response is going to involve engorgement and orgasm.

    01:08 But unlike in males orgasm is not required for fertilization.

    01:15 And lastly, sex determination in the embryo is determined by whether the sperm cell delivers an X or Y chromosome.

    01:26 This concludes our lecture on the physiology of the female reproductive system.

    01:31 Thank you for listening.
