Study Notes

Reproductive System Basics

  • The primary sex organs are called gonads, which produce gametes (sex cells).
  • The function of gonads is to produce gametes and sex hormones.

Male Reproductive System

  • Male gametes are called sperm.
  • The testes are the primary sex organs in males, producing sperm.
  • The epididymis is a tube-like structure where sperm matures and is stored.
  • The main function of the epididymis is to store and mature sperm.
  • The ductus deferens (vas deferens) is a muscular tube that carries sperm from the epididymis to the ejaculatory duct.
  • The function of the ductus deferens is to transport sperm from the epididymis to the ejaculatory duct.
  • The seminal vesicles are accessory organs that secrete a fluid that contributes to semen.
  • The seminal vesicles are located near the base of the bladder.
  • The bulbourethral glands are accessory organs that secrete a milky fluid to help activate sperm.
  • The bulbourethral glands are located near the base of the penis.
  • The urethra is a tube that carries semen and urine out of the body.
  • Sperm travels through the seminiferous tubules to reach the epididymis.
  • The seminiferous tubules are the structures where sperm is produced.
  • The tunica albuginea is the capsule that surrounds each testis.
  • Septa extend into the testis, dividing it into lobules.
  • The epididymis is a tube-like structure with a coiled shape.

Female Reproductive System

  • The primary sex organ in females is the ovaries.
  • Ovaries produce egg cells (ova).

Test your knowledge of the reproductive system with this quiz based on essentials of human anatomy and physiology chapter 16, covering topics such as gonads, gametes, and hormone secretion in males and females.
