Post  jjna on Fri Mar 14, 2008 8:51 am

can somebody define glans clitoris, endometriosis, and tubal pregnancy for me?

(is it supposed to be tubal pregnancy? or tubal ligation?)



and i also don't really get #7 on the lecture objectives, which says

"describe the origin of sexual dimophism in external reproductive structures of humans"

i understand that sexual dimorphism is that males and females look different

but i don't get the "origin" part of the question



i can't believe itz finals already.............

glans clitoris is part of the female anatomy that is highly sensitive and plays a role in sexual stimulation

endometriosis is when endometrium tissue gets outside of the uterus and causes pelvic pain as it responds to hormones/grows where its not supposed to

tubal preg is a preg in a oviduct/fallopian tube (ectopic preg)

tubal ligation is severing the fallopian tube=female sterilization

for the study guide, knowing the are different is a main point, in lecture he spent some time talking about the similarity of reproductive anatomy and such, or the origin of the tissues and how they diverge. ex, glans clitoris vs. penis, etc. There was a slide he projected that went over this.

I do remember the slide about sexual dimorphism and
also do have some notes written down on my note book
but I don't think I fully understood that during lecture Shocked
so what exactly is the origin of sexual dimorphism...?

my thought as stated is their origination as similar tissues in embryo that diverge=dimorph to different looking structures during development, but some conserve similar function

origin=starting point in embryo

oh~
so is it like determination and differenciation
where the cell of embryo is determined and differenciated to become
a certain male or female reproductive parts?

I guess that is a decent way of phrasing it. I think the point of it all is to know what tissues in males/females derive from the same tissue. hence, has a common origin. That's the way I read the question so I hope that helps, seems like you've got it.
