The uterus or womb is the major female reproductive organ, which supports and nourishes the developing baby. One end of the uterus called the cervix, opens into the vagina, whereas the other is connected on both sides to the fallopian tubes. These tubes connect with the ovaries, which are important in producing eggs and secreting hormones.
For more information please see the female urogenital system.
