There are cur­r­ently 6 names in this direc­tory begin­ning with the let­ter F.
Fallo­pian tubes
Pai­red part of the sexual organs, which start from the ute­rus on both sides and end near the respec­tive ovary. The fallo­pian tubes are lined with mucous membrane. 

Fer­ti­lity
Abi­lity to get pregnant per mens­trual cycle and give birth to an offspring. 

Fer­ti­liz­a­tion
The moment in which the sperm and egg merge tog­e­ther. Fer­ti­liz­a­tion takes place in the fallo­pian tube

First period
The first mens­trual blee­ding is also cal­led men­ar­che. The begin­ning of mens­trua­tion takes place during puberty. 

Fol­li­cu­lar phase
The first phase of the mens­trual cycle in which the body pre­pa­res for fer­ti­li­sa­tion of the mature egg. The fol­licle-sti­mu­la­ting hor­mone (FSH) incre­a­ses during this phase, which even­tually enab­les ovulation. 

Free blee­ding
During mens­trua­tion, period pro­ducts such as tam­pons, pads or mens­trual cups are vol­un­ta­rily not used. The blood is the­re­fore not collec­ted by a for­eign object eit­her inside or out­side the body. It is pos­si­ble to feel when blood is com­ing by con­sciously per­cei­ving one's own body. When free blee­ding, the mens­trual blood is finally dischar­ged directly on the toi­let by rela­xing the pel­vic floor.
