There are 3 names in this directory beginning with the letter E.
Egg
Sex cell containing all the genetic material of a menstruating person that is passed on to the children. With the beginning of puberty, an egg cell matures in the ovaries during each menstrual cycle. Eggs are fertilisable for a maximum of 24 hours.

Endometriosis
A chronic, very painful disease of people with a uterus. Outside the uterine cavity, uncontrolled growths of the uterine lining form. The causes for the development of the disease are still unknown.

Estrogen
Important sex hormones that are mainly produced in the ovaries. Estrogen promote the maturation of the egg capable of fertilisation and ensure that the uterine lining is well circulated with blood. The concentration of estrogen in the body changes significantly during the menstrual cycle.
