Help yourself to understand the male reproductive system, what it does, and the problems that can affect it by printing these diagrams of the male reproductive system! In these anatomy pages, the structure and anatomy of male’s reproductive system are available with the labels/. The organs of the male reproductive system are specialized for the following functions: to produce, maintain and transport sperm (the male reproductive cells) and protective fluid (semen); to discharge sperm within the female reproductive tract; and to produce and secrete male sex hormones. The male reproductive anatomy includes internal and external structures, take a look at the following diagram.
If you think about it, most of the male reproductive system is located outside of the man’s abdominal cavity or pelvis. Ass you can see on the diagram of the male reproductive system, the external structures of the male reproductive system are the penis, the scrotum and the testicles. The entire male reproductive system is dependent on hormones, which are chemicals that stimulate or regulate the activity of cells or organs. The primary hormones involved in the functioning of the male reproductive system are follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone. Provided below is the lateral model picture of the male’s genital anatomy.
These organs work together to produce sperm, the male gamete, and the other components of semen. These organs also work together to deliver semen out of the body and into the vagina where it can fertilize egg cells to produce offspring. The penis is actually made up of two parts: the shaft and the glans. The shaft is the main part of the penis and the glans is the tip (sometimes called the head). At the end of the glans is a small slit or opening, which is where semen and urine exit the body through the urethra. The inside of the penis is made of a spongy tissue that can expand and contract.
