Reproductive System

The passage that forms the lower part of the uterus Cervix
Female sex hormones Estrogen
Tubes that carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus Fallopian tubes
Organ in which eggs are produced for reproduction Ovary
Organ for elimination of urine and sperm from the male body Penis
The gland in males that controls the release of urine and secretes a part of semen that enhances motility and fertility of sperm Prostate
The pouch of skin that contains the testicles Scrotum
The organs that produce sperm Testes (testicles)
The hormone that stimulates male secondary sexual characteristics Testosterone
The tube that connects the bladder to the exterior of the body Urethra
The womb Uterus
The tube that connects the external genitals to the cervix Vagina
The duct in which sperm moves from a testicle to the urethra Vas deferens
The male gametes are "BLANK" and the female gametes are "BLANK" Sperm, ovum (eggs).
Both male and female by necessity have half the number of genetic material resulting from "BLANK" Meiotic cellular reduction division
In "BLANK" the uniting of the sperm and egg nuclei during fertilization recombines a full set of genetic material for the formation of a "BLANK" and the development of a new individual of a species. Sexual reproduction, Zygote
Sperm is produced in paired gonads called Testes
The testes are held in the Scrotal sac, or Scrotum
The "BLANK" holds the sperm "BLANK" of the body, which helps to regulate the cooler temperature necessary for the sperm to mature. Scrotum, Outside
The sperm mature in "BLANK" the a tightly coiled tube on the back of each testis. Epididymis
During sexual arousal, mature sperm are transported from the "BLANK" through the duct system of the "BLANK" Epididymis, Vas deferens.
From the vas deferens, sperm passes through the "BLANK" where nutrients and lubricating fluids are added by the prostate gland, "BLANK" , and "BLANK" to create semen. Prostate gland, Seminal vesicle, Bulbourethral gland
Once through the prostate gland, semen enters the "BLANK" of the penis. Urethra
Fertilization can occur if the sperm meets the egg in the female reproductive system by traveling through the "BLANK" the opening to the "BLANK" and continuing into the "BLANK" where it can meet an ovum. Cervix, uterus, fallopian
The female gonads are the Paired right and left ovaries
Ovaries contain hundreds of immature female gametes known as Eggs or ovum
Each fallopian tube is a passageway that leads into the muscular "BLANK" the normal site of implantation and fetal development Uterus
When a mature "BLANK" is released from an "BLANK" it is swept into the "BLANK" and travels toward the "BLANK" . Ovum, ovary, fallopian tubes, uterus
The fertilized egg will then continue traveling through the rest of the fallopian tube and enter into the uterus, where it will implant into the Uterine endometrial lining.
Labor contractions of the uterus and dilation of the "BLANK" allow the baby to move from the uterus through the vaginal birth canal Cervix
The "BLANK" is the master control gland in the endocrine system. Pituitary gland
At the onset of puberty, the pituitary gland secretes "BLANK" and "BLANK" Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH)
In the male "BLANK" promotes the production of sperm, and "BLANK" controls the production of the hormone testosterone. FSH, LH
"BLANK" is produced in the testes and is important for normal development and function of the male reproductive organs. Testosterone
"BLANK" is also responsible for the secondary sex characteristics in males, such as development of facial, axial, and pubic hair, deepening of the voice, and changes in muscular and fat Testosterone
Secretion of "BLANK" in females stimulates the appearance of secondary sex characteristics, such as axial and pubic hair, development of mammary glands, and the beginning of the menstrual cycle. FSH
Approximately every "BLANK" days, hormones of the female system cause cyclic maturation of ova along with changes in the uterine lining. 28
An ovary contains many immature eggs, each in a fluid-filled structure called A Graafian follicle
In the female, the secretion of FSH by the pituitary promotes the development of a "BLANK" , triggering it to secret the hormone "BLANK" Follicle, estrogen.
The resulting spike in estrogen causes a subsequent surge in "BLANK" . The swell of "BLANK" causes ovulation, a rupturing of the egg from the follicle. The egg is then swept into the fallopian tube, where it can meet with sperm in fertilization. Luteinizing hormone
After ovulation, the empty Graafian follicle becomes known as the Corpus luteum
The corpus luteum secretes the hormone "BLANK" which causes thickening of the uterine lining to support the pregnancy. Progesterone,
If fertilization and implantation do not occur, the uterine lining will be shed in menses of the Menstrual cycle.
