Study Notes

Male Reproductive System

Overview

The male reproductive system is responsible for producing and transporting sperm.

Key Components

  • Testes: Produce sperm through a process called spermatogenesis
  • Epididymis: Stores and transports sperm
  • Vas Deferens: Muscular tube that propels sperm during ejaculation
  • Urethra: Passageway for sperm and urine
  • Penis: Organ responsible for urination and sexual intercourse
  • Scrotum: Protects and regulates temperature of testes

Hormonal Regulation

  • Testosterone: Produced by testes, regulates sperm production and male characteristics
  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH): Stimulates testosterone production
  • Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH): Regulates sperm production

Female Reproductive System

Overview

The female reproductive system is responsible for producing eggs and supporting fetal development during pregnancy.

Key Components

  • Ovaries: Produce eggs through a process called oogenesis
  • Fallopian Tubes: Tubes that connect ovaries to uterus, allowing egg fertilization
  • Uterus: Muscular organ that supports fetal development during pregnancy
  • Cervix: Lower part of uterus that opens into vagina
  • Vagina: Muscular canal that connects cervix to outside of body
  • Breasts: Produce milk for nursing

Hormonal Regulation

  • Estrogen: Produced by ovaries, regulates egg maturation and female characteristics
  • Progesterone: Prepares uterus for implantation of fertilized egg
  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH): Triggers ovulation
  • Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH): Stimulates egg maturation
