It was proven good and protective during sexual activity after he successfully tested it on 1,000 men. Another major discover that had a big impact in the whole world was (Bookrag.com) the accurate description, observation, and naming of the Fallopian Tubes (human oviducts). He correctly described those resembling small trumpets. Without documentation (Yahoo Answers) about the Fallopian Tubes and how it works, we wouldn’t know much about it and the way it acts in the women’s reproductive system. Its impact on the world is that it helped medicine. For instance, an ectopic pregnancy can now be diagnosed and the woman will live once the embryo is removed from the fallopian tube. When the discovery of the Fallopian Tubes (Yahoo Answers), women would die once the embryo exploded in the tube which caused severe pain and sepsis. The doctors back then didn’t know what the problem was till Gabriel Fallopius discovered the Fallopian Tubes. He also name The Vagina after observing it and

Because of the genealogical features of his patient’s nervous systems, Charcot believed that they were predisposed to hysteria. In a sharp contrast to Charcot, Jean-Baptiste Louyer-Villermay who was a French physician, stated that “A man cannot be hysterical; he has no uterus” (Showalter 68). Further noted, “The male genitalia did not wander about inside the body; they were firmly attached and plainly in sight” (Showalter 64). The male genitalia was directly located outside the body; however, because the ovaries were kept inside the female body, there was much speculation. Presently, we now understand that men and females both have genitalia in specific locations; the medical practices of this time period show great strides in medical achievement but also demonstrated the ineptitude of its practices and theories. Those who believed in male

It was believed that men and women shared the same genitalia but the reason they had different appearances was because women had an insufficient amount of body heat. This lack of heat allowed their genitals to remain inside their body compared to men that had enough heat to allow their genitalia to drop. This model was used for decades to help understand sexual differences. It was the discoveries of Gabriel Fallopius that drastically changed the one-sex model (Unit 1, PART II, The History of Sexuality). He argued that the one-sex model was wrong and that male and female genitals were not the same, even though they appear to be the
