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. 

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

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.
