The male reproductive system
The Male Reproductive System

  • The male body

    • Prostate gland- a gland in the male reproductive system that makes fluid that helps carry sperm.

    • Sperm- the male sex cell

    • Testes(testicles)- the organs the make the sperm and the primary male sex hormone, Testosterone

    • Scrotum- sac of skin that hold the testes.

    • Epididymis- where sperm mature

    • Penis- Exit point for the body


The path traveled by sperm
The Path Traveled by Sperm

  • Seminiferous Tubules- structures where cells are made, located in the testes

    • Genes- instructions for how a person’s body looks and functions

  • They then move to epididymis where they mature

  • Once mature the sperm moves into tubes called Vas Deferens

  • The sperm then passes through the Seminal Vesicles, which provide the sperm with fluid to help it on it’s journey, Semen

  • The sperm then passes through the prostate gland, and the Cowper’s gland, where it recieves more fluid.

  • The sperm then enters the Urethra, which runs through the penis and out the body.

  • After two weeks in the body the sperm is reabsorbed by the body

The Male Reproductive System

  • Male reproductive problems

    • Check yourself regularly

    • -abstain from sex

The female reproductive system
The Female Reproductive System

  • The female body

    • Uterus- a muscular organ of the female reproductive system that holds a fetus during pregnancy

    • Endometrium- the lining of the uterus

    • Ovum- women’s sex cell

    • Ovaries- where eggs, or ova, are made and stored

      • Female sex hormone also produced here, Estrogen

    • Fallopian Tube- pathway for egg to travel

    • Cervix-lower part of the uterus, where the uterus meets the vagina

    • Vagina- connects the outside of the body with the uterus

    • Breast- also a part of the female reproductive system


Ovulation menstruation
Ovulation/Menstruation

  • Ovulation- beginning at puberty, one of the ovaries releases a mature egg every month.

    • Eggs contain one half of the woman’s genes

    • One egg will be most dominate, other will be reabsorbed by the body

  • Menstruation- the monthly breakdown and shedding of the endometrium, a.k.a. a period


Path of an egg
Path of an Egg

  • The egg or ova forms in the ovaries(day1-13)

  • The egg is then released from the Ovary(Ovulation, day14)

  • The fallopian tube then draws the egg in, along with other fluids, and sends it towards the uterus(15-28)

  • If the egg is fertilzed a pregnancy begins

  • If the egg is unfertilized Menstruation continues(days 1-5)

  • Full cycle takes 28 days and is known as the menstrual cycle.
