There are cur­r­ently 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.
