It also serves as the birth canal by stretching to allow delivery of the fetus during childbirth. Vagina

The process of producing an ovum and readying the uterus to receive a fertilized ovum to begin pregnancy. Reproductive Cycle
The process in which the ovaries produce a mature ovum Ovulation
As the mature ovum travels through the fallopian tube, the sperm meets and penetrates through it to become a zygote. The zygote goes through rapid cell division to become an embryo Fertilization
Embryo implants itself in the uterus and goes through stages of development. Pregnancy
When the mature ovum is not fertilized, it fails to implant itself into the endometrium. Eventually, the endometrium sheds and the blood exits through the vagina. Menstruation
The production and release of milk to feed an infant. Lactation
