MALE
The male reproductive system produces male gametes in a cold environment. Its main components are the scrotum, testes, sex glands, penis, and spermatic ducts; they are mostly located outside the body. The hormone which is produced is testosterone.
The reproductive glands produce secretions that are part of the semen that is ejaculated from the urethra.
It’s a collection of organs that deal with the production and delivery of sperm into the female reproductive system.
The production of hormones is a continuous process, producing around a billion sperm in a month, and the gonads are the testes.
Men can produce viable sperm well into their late years.

FEMALE
The female reproductive system produces female gametes in a warm environment. Its main components are the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vulva, and vagina; they are located on the inside of the body, except for the vulva. The hormones produced are progesterone and estrogen.
Comprised of both internal and external structures which facilitate reproduction – they receive the sperm which fuses with the egg and produces a zygote that grows into an offspring with the genes of both parents.
Production of hormones occurs in a cyclic process, producing a single ovum per month, and the gonads are ovaries.
Women go through menopause, meaning that they are not able to reproduce past a certain age.

BOTH
They are responsible for the production of gametes and the secretion of specific hormones. They are affected by reproductive diseases, experience meiosis, and are located around the pelvic region.
