The female reproductive system is comprised of two general structures, the external female reproductive organs and the internal genital organs. The external female reproductive organs serve two functions; first, they permit sperm to enter the body, and second, they protect the internal genital organs from infectious organisms.

The internal genital organs serve as a pathway called the genital tract. This pathway travels from the ovaries, through the fallopian tubes, to the uterus, and on to the birth canal.
