About 30% of patients ure, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hyperprolactinemia, develop amenorrhea that is not alleviated by weight gain. Strenuous exercise, especially by competitive athletes and Premature ovarian failure is characterized by amenor- dancers, frequently causes menstrual irregularities.

In young children, micturition is a simple reflex action that occurs when the urinary bladder becomes sufficiently distended. Urethra Voluntary control of micturition is normally developed by the time a child is 2 or 3 years old. Specialized urethral glands, embedded in average capacity of the urinary bladder is 700 to 800 ml. A vol- the urethral wall, secrete protective mucus into the urethral canal.

The lower sphincter, composed of third, and fourth sacral segments of the spinal cord.

Stimulation of these muscles causes a rhythmic contrac- fice into the vestibule between the labia minora. The urethral tion of the urinary bladder wall and a relaxation of the internal orifice is positioned between the clitoris and vaginal orifice (see urethral sphincter. The female urethra has a single function: to transport ceived in the brain, but there is still voluntary control over urine to the exterior.

Clinically, the linea alba is a favored site for abdominal surgery because an incision made along this line severs no muscles Although the position of the umbilicus is relatively consistent in all and few vessels or nerves.
