Events of uterine cycle
Events of ovarian cycle
follicular = growth of vesicular follicles from high FSH. days 1-13
ovulation = ballooning ovary wall ruptures & expels the secondary oocytes which is surrounded by corona radiata. day 14
luteal = corpus luteum supplies high levels of progesterone & estrogen. if pregnancy doesnt occur, corpus luteum starts degenerating after about 10 days & hormonal output ends then becomes corpus albicans.
menstral = endometrium layer is shed. 1-4 days
proliferative = endometrium is rebuilt. days 5-14
secretory = immediately after ovulation, rich in blood & nutrients preps endometrium to receive embryo.
3 best options
vasectomy= clipping of vas deferens, stopping mature sperm from releasing. small recovery time couple of days
iud= copper iud can last up to 12yrs works by releasing copper in small amounts to avoid sperm from fertilizing egg.
contraceptive injection= releases progesterone in blood stream to prevent pregnancy. last 8-13 weeks depending on brand.
vasectomy is the best option, simple procedure less invasive.
hormonal iud= release of hormones cause thickening of cervical mucus inhibits sperm from reaching egg. side effects = may embed into wall of uterus, PID (pelvic-inflammatory disease)
the pill= contains synthetic estrogen & progesterone to inhibit ovulation. side effects = possible weight gain, fluid retention, mood changes.
male condoms= thin sheath that covers penis to prevent sperm from entering vagina. side effects= irritation from latex and/or lubrication on condom
3 worst options
hysterectomy= removal of uterus. up to 6 weeks recovery along with chronic pain.
bilateral salpingectomy-oophorectomy = removal of ovaries & fallopian tubes. results of this women will undergo menopause, mood swings.
withdrawal method = pulling out before ejaculation occurs. not always effective.
Female = Vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, fimbrae, ovary, oocyte, corpus luteum, follicles
Male = penis, prostate gland, vas deferens, epididymis, seminal vesicles, bulbourethral gland, seminiferous tubules, rete testis, testicles, scrotum
ovary = produce oocytes & reproductive hormones
fallopian tubes = transport ova from ovary to uterus
fimbrae = catch eggs as they fall from ovary
uterus = nuture fertilized ovum
testicles = produce sperm & secrete testosterone
vas deferens = transport mature sperm to urethra
epididymis = matures sperm (learn to swim)
seminal vesicles = nourish & lubricate sperm
prostate gland = secrete prostate fluid (semen)
