The Ovaries and Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOS)

The ovaries are a pair of small, almond-shaped organs that are located in the pelvis, on each side of the uterus. The ovaries produce the eggs (ova) that travel through the fallopian tubes to the uterus, where they may be fertilized by sperm. The ovaries also produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which regulate the…

Stem Cells and Female Vagina

A vagina is a self-lubricating, self-cleaning organ that is designed to protect and nurture a baby during pregnancy and childbirth. The vagina is also an essential part of a woman’s sexual pleasure. The vaginal stem cells are the source of all the cells that make up the vagina. These stem cells divide and differentiate into…

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) and Female Sex

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in many tissues, including the bone marrow. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteocytes, chondrocytes, and adipocytes. MSCs can also be induced to differentiate into other cell types, such as neurons and myocytes.…

Endometriosis and Stem Cells

Endometriosis is a chronic, degenerative disease characterized by the presence of endometrial tissue outside of the uterus. This tissue is often found in the pelvic cavity, but can also be found in other areas of the body such as the lungs, brain, and even the abdominal cavity. While the exact cause of endometriosis is unknown,…
