Repro Intro

MAMC Exam 8 Repro Intro

male internal reproductive organs testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicle, ejaculatory duct, prostate gland, bulbourethral glands
structure of testes paired, bilateral ovoid shaped suspended by spermatic cord, contained within scrotum
function of testes production of sperm & testosterone
structure of epididymis tightly coiled tube that emerges from top of each testis, leads to vas deferens
function of epididymis stores sperm cells until they mature
structure of vas deferens muscular tube passes along the medial side of the testis into abdominal cavity makes up spermatic cord ends behind urinary bladder
function of vas deferens transports sperm
structure of seminal vesicle convoluted, sac-like structure, 5 cm long attached to each vas deferens at bse of the bladder
function of the seminal vesicle secretes slightly alkaline fluid consisting of fructose & other nutrients for sperm cells produces 60% of volume of sperm
structure of ejaculatory duct short tube (1 inch) beginning at seminal vesicle & ending in the prostate gland
function of ejaculatory duct transport sperm & seminal fluid to urethra
structure of prostate gland firm structure the size of a chestnut composed of muscular glandular tissue
function of prostate gland secretes thin, milky, alkaline fluid which contributes to the motility of sperm
structure of cowper's gland 2 pea-sized glands under the male urethra
function of cowper's gland provide lubrication during sexual intercourse
structure of scrotum sac like 2 seperate chambers each chamber encloses a testis
function of scrotum provides a cooler home for the testes
structure of penis shaft is composed of 3 columns of erectile tissue -2 corpora cavernosa -corpora spongiosum
function of penis specialized to become erect for insertion into the vagina during sexual intercourse
structure of ovaries solid, ovoid shaped structures subdivided into 2 sections - medulla, cortex
location of ovaries lie bilateral to the uterus inferior to fallopian tubes
function of ovaries at puberty, they release progesterone & produce the female sex hormone estrogen releases a mature egg cell during the menstrual cycle
structure of fallopian tubes (oviducts) pair of ducts forms a funnel shaped region near the ovary called the infundibulum infundibulum surrounded by fringe of finger-like projections called fimbrae
function of fallopian tubes (oviducts) cilia along with peristaltic contractions of its wall move the egg cell on the uterus
structure of uterus muscular, hollow, shaped like an inverted pear uterine wall has 3 layers -endometrium -myometrium -perimetrium
function of uterus receives & sustains developing fetus capable of enlarging up to 500 times
structure of vagina thin walled muscular tube-like structure lined with mucous membranes
funciton of vagina receives the erect penis during intercourse converys uterine secretions transports offspring during birth
structure of labia majora large folds of fatty tissue extending from the mons pubis to the perinial floor
function of labia majora protects inner structures contains sensory nerve endings, secaceous & sudoriferous glands
structure of labia minora smaller folds, devoid of hair that merge anteriorly to form the prepuce of the clitoris
funciton of labia minora protect the openings of the vagina & urethra
structure of clitoris composed of erectile tissue
function of clitoris sexual arousal
structure of vestibule space enclosing the structures beneath labia minora
function of vestibule contains the clitoris, urethra, hymen, & vaginal opening
paraurethral or Skene's glands responsible for secretions of mucus & are similar to the male prostate gland
Bartholin's glands or vestibular lubricates the vagina for sexual intercourse
perinuem diamond shaped area from the symphysis pubis & extends to the anus region that contains the reproductive structures
structure of mammary glands located in subcutaneious tissue of the anterior thorax composed of about 15-20 lobes nipple surrounded by areola
function of mammary glands specialized to secrete milk following pregnancy under the influence of prolactin, milk is formed oxytocin allows the milk to be released
