Reproductive System

  1. 1. Our Body Systems
  2. 2. Why do we need to reproduce? • To ensure survival of the species • To produce egg and sperm cells • To transport and sustain these cells • To nurture the developing offspring • To produce hormones
  3. 3. Male Reproductive System
  4. 4. Male Testes - produce sperm - also known as testicles and gonads
  5. 5. Male Duct System Vas Deferens - transports mature sperm to the urethra Epididymis - sperm mature in epididymis
  6. 6. Male Seminal vesicles – attached to vas deferens – produce a sugar- rich fluid that provides energy to sperm
  7. 7. Male Prostate Gland – makes fluid
  8. 8. Male Urethra – tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside of the body – also carries sperm out of the body
  9. 9. Male
  10. 10. REVIEW: The Journey of the Sperm (4) (3) (7) (5) (6) (2) (1)

  12. 12. Female Vagina – canal that joins the cervix to the outside of the body – also is known as the birth canal
  13. 13. Female Uterus – hollow organ that is the home to a developing fetus
  14. 14. Female Ovaries – produce eggs and hormones – oval-shaped glands that are located on either side of the uterus
  15. 15. Female Fallopian Tubes – tunnels for the egg cell to travel from the ovaries to the uterus – where fertilization happens
  16. 16. REVIEW: The Journey of the Egg Cell (3) (2) (1)
  17. 17. Male + Female = Fertilization The Magic of Life
  18. 18. Male + Female = Fertilization Sperm enters the egg cell
  19. 19. Male + Female = Fertilization - fertilization of an egg by a sperm, normally occurs in the fallopian tubes - fertilized egg cell is called a zygote - the zygote then moves to the uterus, where it implants into the lining of the uterine wall
  20. 20. Amnion - transparent sac that protects the baby inside - filled with amniotic fluid
  21. 21. Sperm Egg Cell
  22. 22. 6 weeks umbilical cord
  23. 23. 8 weeks placenta
