here s the facts
Here’s The Facts~
  • Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among teens. Each year an estimated 400,000 young people attempt to kill themselves; about 6,000 succeed.
  • 8/10 people who kill themselves have given definite clues to their intentions
  • Suicidal tendencies can be given in many clues and coded warnings.
  • Although a suicidal person is extremely unhappy, he is not necessarily mentally ill. His overpowering happiness may result from a temporary emotional upset, a long and painful illness, or a complete loss of hope.

“Sometimes in life we cannot control what happens to us but we can take charge of how we respond. We do not have to like what happens to us but we do have to accept certain hurts and events. In these situations we must find a meaning in the meaningless which causes so much pain. We can choose to survive life or we can choose to be devastated by it. Sometimes in the midst of winter, you must find within yourself an invincible summer”

- Dr. Iris Bolton

  • Males usually reach puberty between 12 and 16
  • Testes: Hang within a pouch called the scrotum. Testes produce testosterone (male hormone) and sperm (male reproductive cells)
  • Testosterone causes: growth of hair on many parts of the body, deepening voice, broadening shoulders, increased feelings about the opposite sex
  • Seminal emissions: also known as “wet dreams”. Build-up of fluid in the testes and other parts of the systems. This fluid is known as semen or seminal fluid.
vas deferens
Vas Deferens
  • Has a pouch like structure branching from it called the seminal vesicle which stores sperm for a short period of time. It also makes a substance which helps to form semen.
  • The Vas Deferens works with the epididymus to move sperms throughout the reproductive system
  • Semen (which contains sperm) passes through urethra. Semen and urine never pass through the urethra at the same time.

More Anatomy~
  • Prostate Gland – also makes a substance which helps to form semen. Another tube is the urethra. The urethra carries urine from the urinary bladder to the penis.
  • Cowper’s Gland – gland that produces a milky substance which serves as a lubricant to help move semen.

female reproductive system
Female Reproductive System

  • Ova – (or egg cells) are the reproductive cells. The cells are known as ovum. Ova should be produced at birth
  • Fallopian tubes – in order for the ovum to get from an ovary to certain parts of the female reproductive system, it must “jump” a space between ovaries and another part of the system. This part is called the fallopian tubes. There are 2 of these tubes in the body
  • Uterus – Once the ovum is in the fallopian tubes, the ovum will move through tubes to the uterus. This is another name for the womb. Uterus is thought to be the strongest muscle in the female body.
  • Cervix – the neck of the uterus
more anatomy1
More Anatomy~

  • Cycle usually occurs every 28 days or monthly. However it could go from 24 days to 34 days.
  • The pituitary gland in the brain is what causes the menstrual cycle.
menstrual cycle cont
Menstrual Cycle Cont.
  • Ovulation occurs on the 14th day of the menstrual cycle. This is when the ripened ovum bursts from the ovary.
  • The space left by the ovum fills with a tissue which gives off a hormone called progesterone. This affects the lining of the uterus. As long as progesterone is given off, the hormone FSH will not be given off. Therefore, no ovum will ripen.
  • If the ovum, which is in the fallopian tubes, does not meet with a sperm within 28 to 48 hours, the tissue that gives off the progesterone will die. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus, which has thickened, will break down. Then, the cycle starts all over again.
  • Through this breakdown, small amounts of blood will flow out of the body. This flow lasts about 5 to 7 days. This is called the menstrual period.
effects of the menstrual cycle on some females
