Be sure to cite the specific anatomical structures involved. How does this prevent pregnancy?
The Fallopian tubes are a pair of long narrow tubes connecting the ovaries to the uterus. Egg cells are passed to the uterus through the fallopian tubes .The egg may also be fertilized while in the Fallopian tubes if sperm is present following sexual intercourse. The vagina is an elastic muscular tube with a soft, flexible lining that provides sensation. The vagina attaches the uterus to the outside world. The vagina takes the penis during sexual intercourse and also aids as a tube for menstrual flow from the uterus.
An example of this are the distinct sexual organs that children are born with to associate them anatomically with a gender. In addition, geneders are further differentiated when other sexual characteristic begin to display during puberty. Chemical messenger compounds known as hormones are what coordinates the appearance of such physical differences. There is research that suggests that the same sex hormones which create sexual organ differenciation in utero, and also that trigger puberty later in life may also play in important role in determining gender identity. Males normally have more of the male sex hormones called androgens than females.
Outline and evaluate the Biological approach to gender development The biological approach to gender development tells us that sex determines if an individual is genetically a male or female but that gender determines your own feelings about who you are as a person, either masculine or feminine, and this is due to the differences in their brains. This usually is due to the chromosomes a person has or hormonal differences. Every individual has 23 pairs of chromosomes. Women have 2 X chromosomes while men have an X and a Y chromosome. As an embryo, a male’s Y chromosome starts to produce testosterone and other male sex hormones.
: Where Some Babies Come From, which explains the myriad ways that children of the twenty-first century may have entered their families, including egg donation, surrogacy, in vitro fertilization, and adoption. When conception doesn't occur in the natural way, it becomes very complicated. Once all possible parties have been accounted for—egg donor, sperm donor, surrogate mother, paying couple—as many as five people can be involved in conceiving and carrying a child. No wonder a new book is necessary. The would-be parents' decision to advertise in the News—and to offer a five-figure compensation—immediately suggested that they were in
There are many tests that can be performed on a woman during pregnancy. If it cannot be detected during pregnancy, a doctor can usually determine it by the distinctive facial features a person with Down Syndrome has. A karyotype, which is an observation of the chromosomes, will confirm the presence of the three paired chromosomes. There is no way to completely rid a person of this disorder. However, with the help of tutoring and therapy, a person with Down Syndrome can succeed in school and join the working world.
PID significantly raises the risk of ectopic pregnancy - the fertilized egg does not settle and grow in the uterus; in most cases it will grow in the fallopian tubes, but may also grow in the ovary, cervix, or abdominal cavity. Cervicitis - inflammation of the cervix (neck of the womb). Symptoms may include a vaginal discharge, which may contain pus, pain during intercourse, frequent urination, burning pain when urinating. In chronic cervicitis the cervix may swell and cysts may develop. The cysts may become infected.
The presentation then explains the inside of the male and female reproductive system and how both are different from each other. I.e. Male sperm are more on the quantity than quality while female eggs value quality. The union of the two sets of chromosome from the male and female allows a merger of new unique sets of traits. This makes up for the individuality and uniqueness of a person which is quite different from “clones.” We are not the exact replica of our parents.
There are many factors that lead to developmental delays in children. These factors are divided into genetic influences and environmental influences. Children who come from households with low socioeconomic status are more at risk for developmental delays (Dunlap, 51-53). Prenatal (before birth), perinatal (during birth), and postnatal factors (after birth) also play a role in these delays. For example, an infant may be born prematurely, be exposed to drugs in the womb, or experience maternal deprivation.
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is a series of birth defects such as physical, mental, behavioral and learning problems caused by the mother drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Kenneth Jones and David Smith at the University of Washington in Seattle officially identified Fetal Alcohol Syndrome in 1973 (Golden 1). The exact reasons certain fetuses are affected and others are not, is not fully understood. CDC reports state that 0.2 to 1.5 per 1000 babies are born each year in the United States with alcohol related birth defects (CDC 1). Fetal Alcohol Syndrome can be prevented with education.
