Human Reproductive System

anatomy of the male reproductive system
Anatomy of the Male Reproductive System
  • Testes
    • Produce spermatozoa (gametes)
    • Produce androgens (hormones)
  • Series of ducts
  • Accessory glands (3)
    • Secretions added to sperm to form semen
    • Seminal vesicle, prostate gland, and bulbourethral gland

Anatomy of the Male Reproductive System
  • Supporting structures
    • Scrotum
      • 2 chambered sac that contains testes
      • Muscles help regulate temperature
    • Penis
      • Important sexual organ and part of the urinary system

descent of testes
Descent of Testes
  • Descent
    • Pass from abdominal cavity through inguinal canal to scrotum
testes
Testes
  • Compartments divided by septa
    • Seminiferous tubules
      • Empty into efferent ductules
      • Efferent ductules empty into epididymis
    • Epididymis
      • Site of sperm cell maturation
      • 12-16 days

Uterus & Vagina
  • Uterus
    • Parts: fundus, body, cervix
    • Composed of 3 layers
      • Perimetrium: Serous membrane
      • Myometrium: Smooth muscle
      • Endometrium: Mucous membrane

Female External Genitalia
  • Vulva external female genitalia
    • Vestibule: Space
      • Labia minora: Form borders on sides
      • Clitoris: Erectile structure
        • Corpora cavernosa
        • Corpora spongiosa

review question
Review Question

The structure of the female reproductive system that is homologous to the penis of the male system is the

  • Vagina
  • Labia minora
  • Uterus
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Clitoris
points to remember
Points to Remember
  • Male and female reproductive systems share similarities as evidence of homology
  • Important functions of:
    • Production of gametes and sex hormones
    • Production of sperm (temperature-sensitive)
    • Receiving sperm (semen is mixture of sperm and secretions of three accessory glands)
    • Providing site for development of fetus and birth
    • Breast milk secretions provide nourishment
