• vagina
  • Mme Boivin invented a new pelvimeter, and a vaginal speculum which was used to dilate the vagina and the examination of the cervix. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cause of the pain may be anatomic or physiologic, including but not limited to lesions of the vagina, retroversion of the uterus, urinary tract infection, lack of lubrication, scar tissue, or abnormal growths. (wikipedia.org)
  • The opening into the uterus is called the internal os, and the opening into the vagina is called the external os. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lower part of the cervix, known as the vaginal portion of the cervix (or ectocervix), bulges into the top of the vagina. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lower end of the cervix bulges through the anterior wall of the vagina, and is referred to as the vaginal portion of cervix (or ectocervix) while the rest of the cervix above the vagina is called the supravaginal portion of cervix. (wikipedia.org)
  • A central canal, known as the cervical canal, runs along its length and connects the cavity of the body of the uterus with the lumen of the vagina. (wikipedia.org)
  • On the rounded part of the ectocervix is a small, depressed external opening, connecting the cervix with the vagina. (wikipedia.org)
  • Carcinoma
  • Topics covered include spontaneous and induced chromosomal instability in patients with carcinoma of cervix uteri , genomic instability of the APC gene found in glioblastoma, radiation hormesis and the control of genomic instability, how a cell defends itself against genomic instability caused by chromium, and genotoxic stress and apoptosis. (freethesaurus.com)
  • Stage I The carcinoma has grown deeper into the cervix, but has not spread beyond it (extension to the corpus would be disregarded). (wikipedia.org)
  • Congenital
  • Primary amenorrhoea (menstrual cycles never starting) may be caused by developmental problems, such as the congenital absence of the uterus or failure of the ovary to receive or maintain egg cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tissue
  • The cervix has an inner mucosal layer, a thick layer of smooth muscle, and posteriorly the supravaginal portion has a serosal covering consisting of connective tissue and overlying peritoneum. (wikipedia.org)
  • dilate
  • During vaginal childbirth, the cervix must flatten and dilate to allow the fetus to progress along the birth canal. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosal
  • The gene for SLPI is expressed by cells at many mucosal surfaces located in the tissues of the lungs, cervix, seminal vesicles, and parotid ducts. (wikipedia.org)
  • rectum
  • He pioneered a number of operations including removal of the rectum, lithotomy in women, and amputation of the cervix uteri. (wikipedia.org)
  • To the rear, the supravaginal cervix is covered by peritoneum, which runs onto the back of the vaginal wall and then turns upwards and onto the rectum, forming the recto-uterine pouch. (wikipedia.org)
  • pregnancy
  • The cervix is the lower part of the uterus, the place where a baby grows during pregnancy. (icdlist.com)
  • For your future pregnancy the same procedure has to be adopted with or without cervical suture as per the conditions of the cervix at that time. (healthcaremagic.com)
  • Because pregnancy with bicornuate uterus is a complicated one and if the prgnancy is twins the risk is more both for the mother and child. (healthcaremagic.com)
  • The cervix is usually 2 to 3 cm long (~1 inch) and roughly cylindrical in shape, which changes during pregnancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • deeper
  • The pain can primarily be on the external surface of the genitalia, or deeper in the pelvis upon deep pressure against the cervix. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Although no MHC II+ reaction was observed in the surface epithelia of the cervix uteri in estrus, MHC II+ reactive secretory cells (Figure 3B, arrowheads) were seen in diestrus. (freethesaurus.com)
  • time
  • The cervix has been documented anatomically since at least the time of Hippocrates, over 2,000 years ago. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • Around 2-3 centimetres (0.8-1.2 in) in length, it is the lower narrower part of the uterus continuous above with the broader upper part-or body-of the uterus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Question
  • On my first consultation my doctor said I have a bicornuate uterus and hence I undergo cervix suture on the 4rth month, after tat im regularly taking an injection named hucog 5000 every week.so my question s will these may cause any defects to myself or my baby including having a second baby. (healthcaremagic.com)
  • shape
  • The ectocervix (also known as the vaginal portion of the cervix) has a convex, elliptical shape and projects into the cervix between the anterior and posterior vaginal fornices. (wikipedia.org)
  • doctor
  • So whether or not you will still have a cervix depends on the procedure your doctor is planning. (zocdoc.com)
