The testes are where sperm are produced. The testes are linked to the rest of the male reproductive organs by the vas deferens, which extends over the base of the pelvic bone or ilium, and wraps around to the ampulla, seminal vesicle, and prostate. The urethra then runs from the bladder through the penis. Along the top of each testicle is the epididymis. This is a cordlike structure where the sperm mature and are stored.
How Is Sperm Produced?
Male Reproductive System (for Parents) - Nemours Kidshealth
The organs and structures of the male reproductive system give men the ability to fertilise a woman's egg ovum to produce a baby. The scrotum, or scrotal sac. This is the loose bag of skin which hangs under the main body cavity between the upper thighs. It is divided into two, and each side contains one testicle testis. The testicles testes.
The male reproductive system
Sperm production is hormonally driven. Brain hormones govern sperm production and are precisely controlled. The male genitalia are responsible for sperm and ejaculate production. Within the brain, the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary control sperm production. The hypothalamus secretes gonadotropin-releasing hormone GnRH , which acts on the anterior pituitary gland, stimulating it to release follicle stimulating hormone FSH and leutinizing hormone LH.
Semen , also known as seminal fluid , is an organic fluid created to contain spermatozoa. It is secreted by the gonads sexual glands and other sexual organs of male or hermaphroditic animals and can fertilize the female ovum. In humans, seminal fluid contains several components besides spermatozoa: proteolytic and other enzymes as well as fructose are elements of seminal fluid which promote the survival of spermatozoa, and provide a medium through which they can move or "swim". Semen is produced and originates from the seminal vesicle , which is located in the pelvis. The process that results in the discharge of semen is called ejaculation.
