  5. 5. Pancreas: regulates blood sugar level<br />
  6. 6. Reproductive Glands<br />Ovaries: regulate female reproductive system<br />Estrogen: sex characteristics <br />Progesterone: prepare for pregnancy <br />Testicles: regulates the male reproductive system<br />Testosterone: sexual characteristics, growth of facial hair, pubic hair, sperm production <br />
