Sorry, no etymologies found.
You can see in the picture above that the uterus has two major layers to it (well, actually it has three, there is a very far outer layer called the perimetrium, that separates the uterus from the rest of the abdominal environment).
− The uterus is comprised of 3 layers: perimetrium: outer lining - really just an extension of the peritoneum, myometrium: muscle layers.
