Double uterus 
Anyone know the title on english of the Nat Geo documentary about human and animal formation in the womb, it have images of the baby in formation (but idk if are real or just CGI)--ometzit<col> 23:55, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
Article gives no information on etymology of "womb" or "uterus", and thus I am having difficulty understanding what all the fuss was about in the recent edit war. — Rickyrab | Talk 20:34, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
As a pelvic surgeon i had to correct some of the anatomical errors.
Teeth in the uterus
I have read of teeth in the uterus and seen pictures of MRIs and so forth showing this. I understand there is a term for it. Someone ought to post that infor here. --Scottandrewhutchins 15:21, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
Can someone expand the "forms in mammals" section? What exactly do those terms mean? I can make rough guesses based on the word-forms, but it would be nice to have more information Nik42 (talk) 23:47, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Being an women how many time and how long the menopass can happen if it happens twice amonth and what will the problem —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:12, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Why does "Hystera" redirect to "uterus"? This should be changed asap if there are no objections. If this is a reference to "female hysteria", there is an entire article on that so surely that is where hysteria should be redirected (that is, if it needs to be redirected at all??) Bohemian89 (talk) 13:46, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
- "Hystera" spelled without the "i" is an alternative transliteration of "hustera," the Greek word for uterus. It is not to be confused with "hysteria," a state of mind in which emotions are exaggerated. The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 07:10, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
Contents of Uterus
What is in the uterus of a human female who is just completed a menstrual period and is not pregnant? Is it air, or a salinic fluid? Somehow, the sperm "swim" through it, making me think it is filled with a salinic fluid of some kind, which is incorporated into the developing lining between the end of one period and the onset of the next menstrual period.

Slight issue with "womb" redirect

The word "womb" should be a Disambiguation rather than a straight Redirect. Here is why.
In present-day use, "womb" is indeed a synonym for "uterus," and this has always been at least one of its uses. In archaic use, however, the word "womb" could also refer to the stomach of a female, as long as its owner was still female. I Italicized the word "stomach" because I'm referring to the actual digestive chamber, not to the erroneous use of "stomach" to describe a pregnant uterus. ("With a baby in her stomach"--Hopefully not, but people say that...)
In Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, as Romeo is about to climb into Juliet's tomb to poison himself, there is one interesting line where he personifies his upcoming suicide as a female monster who is about to eat him. He speaks of entering her "maw" (mouth) and addresses her referring to the grave as "thy womb of death" (Italics added).
I suggest that we make a Disambiguation Page where "womb" can go to "uterus" or "stomach," perhaps with a parenthetical note that the latter use is archaic. The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 04:11, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
Item (2) on diagram
At first glance, it looks like a line leading only as far as the ovary so I made a correction (?) to the caption for (2) (was "uterus", now "ovary"). Taking a closer look it could be that the line goes farther to correctly identify the uterus. The diagram should be fixed to avoid misreading the (2) pointing to the ovary. In the meantime I will leave the changed caption because that thing up there (ovary) probably should be mentioned on a diagram like this. If someone is able to repair / clarify the diagram please also review the caption, thanks. Walkingstick3 (talk) 06:57, 14 August 2010 (UTC)
NPOV and "uterine orgasm"
I read parts of this article in passing, fixing a link out. It is loaded with unlikely and unsourced claims, such as that the uterus is required for orgasm to occur. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:53, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
I would also like to question that mention of "uterine orgasm." I don't believe that that is a medically recognized concept. Google Scholar turned up a few mentions postulating the existence of such a thing, mostly from sources that were either not very current or not very reputable. I suggest this sentence be removed. Audiosqueegee (talk) 01:08, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
- As I stated at Talk:Orgasm: In the Orgasm#General section, it's not called a "uterine orgasm." It says "Orgasm may also be achieved by stimulation of the nipples, uterus, or other erogenous zones, though this is rarer." And it's backed to the Herbert A. Otto (1988) source New Orgasm Options: Expanding Sexual Pleasure. I don't believe most researchers have identified a "uterine orgasm," but some seem to believe that a woman can have a genital orgasm (the way an orgasm is typically defined) by stimulation of the uterus. This source, for example, says, "Four major nerves bring signals from women's genitals to their brains. The pudendal nerve connects the clitoris, the pelvic nerve carries signals from the vagina, the hypogastric nerve connects with the cervix and uterus, and the vagus nerve travels from the cervix and uterus without passing through the spinal cord (making it possible for some women to achieve orgasm even though they have had complete spinal cord injuries." Personally, since the uterus is categorized as part of the female genitals (a sex organ), I find a woman achieving an orgasm through some kind of uterine stimulation more believable than achieving it through nipple stimulation.
- Anyway, I removed the unsourced line you two have objected to. Also seen in that link is an IP removing this barely-there section which linked to the deleted Uterine orgasm article. Flyer22 (talk) 20:57, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
My question is "What is the name and cause of a condition in the Uterus .When the woman has a "chunk' of fatty tissue that seems to interfere with the ability to procreate? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:53, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
I propose to mention the latin phrase "extremitas uterina" in the body
Extremitas uterina connects uterus by ligamentum ovari proprium. It should be mentioned in the body too with the professional names. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SaminTietokirja (talk • contribs) 22:11, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
"For twins born of different fathers, see Uterine siblings."
I understand that this hat note is because the target "Uterine siblings" is related to this article's keyword.
However, the section/article linked to is concerned with discussions of relations in general. The "twins born of different fathers" angle is almost completely lost; yes, they count as half-siblings, but that is much less specific than what the hat note "promises".
If this was about "twins born of different fathers" then a more appropriate link would be needed, one that specifically discusses the details of having two babies that aren't full siblings at the same time.
However, since this is about linking to ""Uterine siblings" we instead need a better description that more accurately conveys the subject of the link. I'll pick some language from that article to do precisely that.
