Transcript of The Journey Of The Sperm Cells

The sperm cells form in the scrotum.
The scrotum keeps the testicles in place, and helps regulate their temperature. Next, the sperm travels through the testes
into the epididymis. The epididymis is made up of three parts. The head, body, and tail. After it goes through the epididymis,
it will go into the vas deferens. As the sperm makes its way through the vas deferens, it travels into the seminal
vesicle. The seminal vesicle nourishes
the sperm cells. After the sperm goes into the prostate
gland. The sperm makes one last stop
at the cowpers gland to rid the sperm of any acid that urination has caused. Finally, the sperm travels through the
urethra and is ejaculated out the tip of
the penis. When the sperm is ejaculated during
intercourse, it shoots into the vagina.
The vagina is a long tube like structure
where the penis is inserted during
intercourse. It is also a passageway
between the vulva and the cervix. The semen travels through the vagina,
and up into the cervix. The cervix is
made of muscular folds, and is always
closed except during estrus and
parturition. Next, the semen travels up into the
uterus, which is where the fetus a.k.a.
womb grows. The uterine horns is what the semen
enters next. Uterine horns are extensions on either side of the
uterus that lead to the oviducts. When the semen is finished traveling
through the uterine horns, it goes into
the oviduct, which is where the egg and
the sperm cell meet. In order for the
egg and the sperm to meet in the oviduct, the egg travels out of the ovaries and the infundibulum. The head The body The Tail Male Reproductive System Female Reproductive System The Male and Female Reproduction System BY: Stephanie and Jasmine
