The ovaries are located on opposite sides of the uterus in the pelvic cavity and are attached to the uterus by the ovarian ligament.Uterus: Is responsible for the development of the embryo and fetus during pregnancy. Fallopian Tube: Connects the ovaries to the uterus. Egg cells are carried to the uterus through the fallopian tubes after ovulation.Cervix: Plays importance in the control of movement into and out of the uterus, protection of the fetus during pregnancy, and the delivery of the fetus during childbirth. makes up the lower one-third of the uterus and its tissues are continuous with the tissues that make up the rest of the uterus.Vagina: Connects the cervix of the uterus to the vulva and exterior of the body.
