Basic Histology -- Stratified Squamous Epithelium, Glycogen-Rich Next Home Back

The stratified squamous epithelium of the ectocervix is rich in glycogen at certain times of the month. This guarantees a good supply of sugar for the sperms.

This is ectocervix. The glycogen-rich cells are much larger than their progenitors in the basal layer, and have a pale cytoplasm.
