Summary
Dr. Alice Roberts continues her explanation of our reproductive systems, in this episode looking at the female sexual organs. Using an MRI scanner on her own body, she demonstrates how everything fits together-possibly a first for a television presenter. Using her trademark dissections of animal parts, drawings, and props, Dr. Roberts explains the female reproductive organs. Thousands of chocolate mini eggs help to demonstrate the huge number of eggs a baby girl is born with and how they immediately start disintegrating. There is also advice on how to become "breast aware," on the importance of protecting oneself from sexually transmitted infections, and on the value of smear tests for fighting cervical cancer.
