The main elements of the female reproductive system include the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, the uterus, and the vagina.
The ovaries are two small glands located on each side of the uterus that produce the hormones progesterone and estrogen.
About every 28 days, an egg is released from one of the ovaries into the nearby fallopian tube. The role of the fallopian tube is to carry the released eggs to the uterus.
If the egg is fertilized on its way to the uterus, it will implant in to the lining of the uterus and develop into a pregnancy. However, if the egg is not fertilized, it will pass through the uterus and will be shed with the lining. This is called menstruation, or having your period.
