The uterus is a pear-shaped organ in the female reproductive system. It is located in the pelvis, between the bladder and the rectum. The uterus is responsible for the growth and development of a fetus during pregnancy.
The uterus is made up of three layers:
The endometrium is the inner lining of the uterus. It is made up of a layer of tissue that is shed during menstruation.
The myometrium is the middle layer of the uterus. It is made up of muscle tissue that contracts during childbirth.
The perimetrium is the outer layer of the uterus. It is made up of a layer of tissue that covers the uterus and attaches it to the surrounding organs.
The uterus is connected to the ovaries by the fallopian tubes. The ovaries produce eggs and release them into the fallopian tubes. If an egg is fertilized by sperm, it will implant in the lining of the uterus and begin to grow into a fetus.
The uterus grows and changes size during pregnancy. At the beginning of pregnancy, the uterus is about the size of a small pear. By the end of pregnancy, the uterus is about the size of a grapefruit.
After childbirth, the uterus shrinks back to its normal size. The process of the uterus shrinking back to its normal size is called involution. Involution usually takes about six weeks.
The uterus is a vital organ for women. It is responsible for the growth and development of a fetus during pregnancy. The uterus also plays a role in menstruation and childbirth.
