• Are physical differences
between male and female
reproductive organs .
• Are physical differences that
aren’t directly related to
appearing during puberty.
Human reproductive cells
• There are two types of human reproductive
cells: the female egg cell ( ovum) and the male
sperm cell ( spermatozoon). Both types of
reproductive cells are also called gametes.
The female reproductive system.
• The female reproductive system produces
female gametes, called egg cells. It is also
where a fertilised egg cell develops into a
External and internal sex organs of
the female reproductive systems
External sex organs
• The labia majora and the
labia minora, skin that
protects the rest of the
• The vaginal orifice.
• The clitoris.
Internal sex organs
• The ovaries.
• The fallopian tube.
• The uterus.
• The vagina.
The menstrual cycle
• An egg cell starts to
mature inside one of the
ovaries . On of the 14th
day the egg cell leaves the
ovary. This process is
• The walls of the uterus
become thicker with extra
tissue and blood. This
change prepares the
uterus for a fertilisied egg
cell ,the extra tissue and
blood come away from
the walls of the uterus
and leave the body
through the vagina. This
process is called
The male reproductive system
• The male reproductive system produces male
gametes ,called sperm cells. It also transports the
sperm cells out of a man’s body and into a
woman’s reproductive system.
• Vas deferences
• Seminal vesicles and the prostate
• The urethra
• The penis , which deposits sperm cells in the
• The testicles produce millions of sperm cells.
• The vas deferens carry the sperm cells to the
• The seminal vesicles and the prostate produce
• The urethra, wich carries the semen and the
sperm cells out of the body ,through the penis.
The male reproductive system becomes
mature during puberty. Then the testicles
start to produce millions of sperm cells.
• When a sperm cell fertilises an egg cell, the
two cells join to form a new cell called zygote.
• Pregnancy is the time between the
fertilisation of an egg cell and the birth of a
• Birth is when the baby leaves the uterus
through the vagina. Three stages: the dilation
of the cervix, the expulsion of the baby and
the expulsion of the afterbirth(the placenta,
the amniotic sac and the rest of the umbilical
