Transcript of Male Reproductive System

Male Reproductive System Main parts!
Penis: Is used for sexual reproduction.
Scrotum: contains the testicles, has a protective function and acts as climate control. testicles: responsible for making testosterone and for generating sperm! Epididymis: transport and storage of the sperm cells! Scrotum: contains the testicles, has a protective frunction and acts as climate control. How do they work together!?!?! when the testes produce sperm it is transported and stored by the epididymis How dose it work with other body parts?!?! the bladder and the urethra are connected Diseases?! Penile currature: build up of the erectile tissue of the penis, with the elastic covering.
-treated through oral medication like vitamin E. injections of steroids and ultrasound treatments. Inguinal hernia: in some males the inguinal canal doesn't completely close to keep the intestines from also passing into the scrotum
-Can be repaired surgically. Testicular cancer: cancer that starts in the testes, the male reproductive glands located in the scrotum. (pain, enlargement, ache in abdomen, lumps or swelling.)
-can be treated surgically, radiation, or chemotherapy. FUN FACTS!!! the number of sperm cells produced daily averages 85 million per day, per testicle! more than a quadrillion sperm cells (1,000,000,000,000) are created in a males lifetime. if kept warm (body temperature) sperm remain mobile for several hours,
but inside a female reproductive tract, they can live up to 7 days! the scrotem hangs outside the body because the internal temperature is too high and will kill the sperm. Once the sperm has penetrated the egg the outer shell becomes impenetrable to other sperm Urethra: the transport tube leading from the bladder to discharge urine to the outside of the body. Vas Deferans: tube connecting the testes with the urethra. a colied duct that conveys sperm from the epididimis to the ejaculatory duct, and the urethra. THE END!!!
Avoid trauma Wear protective gear, such as a jock strap and cup Check for testicular cancers. Males should learn from their doctor how to properly examine their testicles regularly for signs of this
disease. Any time after puberty is a good time to start this habit. Watch for other diseases Get regular tests. If you are sexually active,
it is important to be tested regularly for sexually
transmitted diseases How to keep your reproductive organs HEALTHY!!
