Ute­rine lining
The thin, pink-colou­red mucous mem­brane forms the inner wall of the ute­rus to pro­tect it and enable the implan­ta­tion of a fer­ti­li­sed egg. During the mens­trual cycle, hor­mo­nes influ­ence the con­sis­tency and quan­tity of the mucous mem­brane. During mens­trua­tion, the upper layer of the ute­rine lining is bro­ken down and dischar­ged. During pregnancy, the lining of the ute­rus is cal­led decidua.

Ute­rus
Part of the geni­tal organs that extends from the outer cer­vix to the ope­ning of the fallo­pian tubes. The ute­rus is simi­lar in shape to an upside-down pear and is a hol­low organ in which the egg nests and deve­lops after fer­ti­li­sa­tion. The ute­rus is also invol­ved in the birth of the child due to its pro­noun­ced mus­cle layer.
