3.9 a Male Reproductive System


Recall the structure and function of the male and female reproductive systems

Bladder
  • Stores urine
Testis
  • To carry out the process of meiosis which produces a gamete called the sperm cells
Epididymis
  • Where sperm cells are stored
Vasderens
  • To carry sperm cells to penis during sexual stimulation
Prostate
  • Contains 20%-30% volume of semen and is known to carry sugars and is alkali
  • The alkali is to neutralize the acidic secretion of the vagina
Seminal Vesicles
  • They also produce sugar based alkaline substances
  • Contains 70% of volume of semen
Urethra
  • The common tube which joins the left right testis and the left and right vasderens
  • Carries semen/urine down penis
Penis
  • Carry sperm cells into the vagina during sexual intercourse
