The female reproductive system includes:
1. Uterus: It is a muscular pear-shaped organ and is also known as the womb. It is the part where the zygote develops into an embryo and then grows into the foetus.
2. Fallopian tubes: These are funnel shaped muscular tubes that extends from both right and left side of the uterus extended to the edge of the ovaries. These tubes have finger-like projections called fimbriae. These fimbriae extend to the ovary and pick up ova that is produced by ovary into the infundibulum and finally reaches the uterus.
3. Vagina: It is an elastic and muscular tube that acts as a receptor for sperms during sexual intercourse and delivers the sperm to the fallopian tube as well as to the uterus.
