Transcript of 8th grade Reproductive Systems

Male and Female Reproductive Systems
Female System
Male System
External Anatomy
-external male organ
Glans Penis
-head or tip of penis
-pouch which holds the testicles
-male sex
which produce testosterone and the
male sex cell-sperm
Internal Anatomy
-ducts extending from the testicles and act as a passageway for sperm.
This is where sperm is stored and matured.
Vas Deferens
-a pair of long thin tubes through which sperm travels
Seminal Vesicles
-gland that adds fluid that neutrilizes the acidity for the sperm to live longer.
-passageway for urine and semen to leave the body.
Prostate gland
-adds fluid that aids in the passageway of sperm
-mix of fluids and sperm that leaves the body during ejaculation
External Anatomy
Mons Pubis
-soft area of protective tissue making up the upper part of the external genitalia
-external genitalia which includes the labia and clitoris
Labia majora
-larger outer lips that protect the vagina
Labia minora
-inner smaller lips that protect the vagina
-pea-sized organ located at the top of the vulva.
Urethral Opening
-located just below the clitoris and above the vaginal opening
Opening-external opening of the vagina
-made up of fat and muscle. Contain milk ducts that produce milk after pregnancy and birth
Internal Anatomy
-muscular flexible tube extending from the uterus to the outside of the body. It is where the penis is inserted during sexual intercourse. The sperm then travel through the uterus to the fallopian tubes, where, if they meet an egg, fertilization takes place.
-very thin mucous membrane which sometimes closes part of the vaginal opening in young girls. It is not always present, and can be ruptured during physical activity.
-where the vagina meets the uterus
-a hollow, muscular organ about the size of a fist. This is where a fertilized egg implants itself in the wall and starts to grow. If there is no fertilization, the walls break down and are shed through the vagina during menstruation(period).
Fallopian tubes
-passageway for the egg after it is released from the ovary.
This is where fertilization takes place.
-two glands
one on each side of the uterus and next to the fallopian tubes. The ovaries contain thousands of eggs. Each month, one egg matures and is released (on average).
-female sex cell, also called an "egg."
