Oogenesis -Brain connection to pituitary -Hypothalamus makes GnRH which controls activity of AP: controls 2 different AP hormones --> FSH and LH -FSH produced predominantly by AP -GnRH 1st effect is to make elevated levels of FSH -Ovary in the pelvic cavity -Most follicles women have are primary follicles, which will never develop (stay arrested for all of life) -Primary will mature to secondary, to become more mature and then ultimately will form a graffian follicle -W/i graffian follicle is the egg, which is the only one to complete Meiosis I -Oocyte released and then the graffian follicle becomes the corpus luteun -W/i the ovary is where gametogenesis occurs and all the other structures are developing (glandular) -FSH acts on all of the follicles and cause them to mature; only the really mature follicles have FSH receptors, grow the most and respond the most to FSH -Follicles produce estrogen -Very proximal to uterus are the fallopian tubes (uterine tube) which connects to the uterus and w/i central region of uterus, innermost tissue is the endometrium (tissue which embryo will implant and develop w/i first 2 months of pregnancy; for implantation and pregnancy, endometrium needs traits to allow for these to occur which are
