Anatomy & Physiology Of The Reproductive System

  1. 1. Anatomy & Physiology of the Reproductive System Chapter 10 Presentation By: Dominique Michel
  2. 2. Understanding the Female Reproductive system <ul><li>Defining Reproduction: The process by which organisms produce another organism. </li></ul><ul><li>“ The female reproductive system plays many vital functions that ensure the continuation of the human race.” </li></ul><ul><li>The female reproductive system produces a sex cell, or gamete known in women as the egg or ovum. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Understanding the Female Reproductive System (cont.) <ul><li>The female, as well as male reproductive system are both essential for reproduction. </li></ul><ul><li>The females egg is needed, and the male is needed to fertilize it. </li></ul><ul><li>The female reproductive system includes two ovaries, 2 fallopian tubes, the uterus, vagina, vulva and breast. </li></ul>
  4. 6. Labor Process <ul><li>“ Labor is the actual process of expelling the fetus from the uterus and through the vagina.” </li></ul><ul><li>This process consist of 3 stages. </li></ul><ul><li>The Dilation Stage - the uterine contraction dilates the cervix. Consist of latent (mild) labor, active (rapid) labor and the transition (intense) phrase. </li></ul>
  5. 7. Labor Process (cont.) <ul><li>2. The Expulsion Stage - the delivery/birth of the baby. </li></ul><ul><li>3. The Placental Stage - the delivery of the placenta. </li></ul>
  6. 9. Understanding the Male Reproductive System <ul><li>“ The male reproductive system has two main functions”. </li></ul><ul><li>The male reproductive system produces a a sex cell, or gamete known in males as sperm and secretes the male sex hormone. </li></ul><ul><li>The male reproductive system includes the testes (testicles), the epididymis, penis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate gland, and the bulbourethral glands (cowper’s glands). </li></ul>
