    The uterus is made up of multiple layers, each with its own structural and functional properties. A mucosal layer, or endometrium, a muscularis layer, or myometrium, and a serosal layer, or perimetrium, are the most basic classifications for these layers. The stratum functionalis and stratum basalis are the two layers of the endometrium. The stratum functionalis expands and vascularizes during the menstrual cycle and is then sloughed off during menstruation, whereas the stratum basalis remains essentially constant. The myometrium permits the uterine cavity to expand and contract and is sensitive to the hormone oxytocin.
