so, answer is endometrium..
r u sure about it
bcoz I searched a lot in internet....................it is myometrium........ endometrium becomes decidua in placenta and is responsible for supplying bld(under estrogen control)
plz check again and lemme know too
it is myometrium
The endometrium functions as a lining for the uterus, preventing adhesions between the opposed walls of the myometrium, thereby maintaining the patency of the uterine cavity. During the menstrual cycle or estrous cycle, the endometrium grows to a thick, blood vessel rich, glandular tissue layer. This represents an optimal environment for the implantation of a blastocyst upon its arrival in the uterus.
During pregnancy, the glands and blood vessels in the endometrium further increase in size and number. Vascular spaces fuse and become interconnected, forming the placenta, which supplies oxygen and nutrition to the embryo and fetus
The myometrium stretches (the smooth muscle cells expand in size, rather than number) during pregnancy to allow for the harboring of the pregnancy, and contracts in a coordinated fashion during the process of labor. After delivery the myometrium contracts to expel the placenta and reduce blood loss.
The myometrium stretches (the smooth muscle cells expand in size, rather than number) during pregnancy to allow for the harboring of the pregnancy, and contracts in a coordinated fashion during the process of labor.
Doesnt this signify that myometrium undergoes hypertrophy rather than hyperplasia.
i hope im right....
Myometrium: hypertrophy ONLY (cells increase in size, not number)
Endometrium: hypertrophy + hyperplasia
hey tired pigeon ur right, i was wrong sorry about that got confused
what about this
