The fourth variation of Human Reproductive Biology emphasizes the organic and biomedical elements of human copy, explains advances in reproductive technological know-how and discusses the alternatives and matters of this present day. Generously illustrated in complete colour, the textual content presents present information regarding human reproductive anatomy and body structure. This expansive textual content covers the entire diversity of issues in human copy, from the biology of female and male structures to notion, being pregnant, exertions and start. It is going directly to hide matters in fertility and its keep an eye on, inhabitants development and kin making plans, caused abortion and sexually transmitted illnesses. this can be the best e-book for classes on human reproductive biology, with bankruptcy introductions, sidebars on comparable themes, bankruptcy summaries and proposals for additional reading.

Sample text

Low levels of androgens are present in a woman’s blood. Weak androgens are predominant; most of these come from the adrenal glands (see Chapter 6). Additional androgens, including testosterone, are secreted from growing follicles and from interstitial cells that originate from the thecal layer of an atretic follicle, which does not degenerate with the rest of the follicle. Nonsteroidal hormones produced by the ovary include inhibin, activin, and follistatin. Hormonal Control of Follicular Growth and Steroidogenesis Follicular growth and steroid hormone secretion are controlled by two pituitary gonadotropins: folliclestimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH).

0 cm (1–2 in) in diameter. Uterine Disorders Pelvic Infection The uterus is subject to infectious organisms entering through the vagina. Some bacteria, such as those associated with sexually transmitted diseases (see Chapter 17), can cause uterine infection and inflammation that can spread to the oviducts. Such an infection can be dangerous to the fetus during pregnancy and can lead to oviductal scarring and infertility (see Chapters 15 and 17). Cervical Cancer Cervical cancer is the eighth most common cause of cancer fatalities among US women.

Other informational molecules involved in transmitting the LH signal from granulosa cells to the oocyte have been proposed. These include epidermal growth factors (EGFs), which may cause follicle maturation through paracrine action, and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), an intracellular signal. Regardless of the molecular signal(s) transmitting the message from LH receptors on granulosa cells to the interior of the oocyte, the actual events of meiotic maturation are controlled by a substance called maturation-promoting I.
