Some differences between the male and female reproductive system is that the male reproductive system consists of two major parts, the testes where sperm is being produced. The second part is the penis, the urethra and penis both belong to male urinary and reproductive systems. The testes have an eternal pouch known as the scrotum and they remain cooler than the normal body temperature because they need to facilitate sperm production. While the female reproductive system with the female reproductive system includes both internal and external functions and anatomy. This includes the clitoris, labia minora, labia majora and Bartholin’s glands. The vagina and uterus are the major internal organs pf the female reproductive system that act as a receptacle for the semen and the ovaries that produce the female’s ova. The vagina is also attached to the uterus through the cervix and while the fallopian tubes connect the uterus to the ovaries. With the female reproductive system during ovulation the egg is released and sent down the fallopian tube and if not fertilized then the egg is eliminated during menstruation. While fertilization occurs if a sperm enters the fallopian tube and burrows into the egg. Fertilization occurs in the oviducts, but can happen in the uterus as well. Once the egg becomes implanted in the lining of the uterus that is where the process in which the embryo starts to from begins. Through that process the embryo grows and once it is mature enough to survive outie of the womb, then the cervix is prepared to start dilating and contractions push the infant through the birth canal.
