There are many key differences between the male and female reproductive systems. The main difference being that male reproductive system produces and delivers sperm to the female reproductive system, whereas the female reproductive system facilitates fertilization and develops the baby. The male reproductive system consists of two parts which are the testes and the penis. The testes is where the sperm is produced and they are located in the external pouch which is known as the scrotum because the cooler temperature from the scrotum makes for better production of the sperm. For the male reproductive system, most parts are outside of the body. The female reproductive system has external and internal parts and is much more complex than the male reproductive system. The external parts consist of the clitoris, labia minora, labia majora and Bartholin’s glands. The internal organs of the female reproductive system consist of the vagina, uterus, and the ovaries. The vagina is attached to the uterus through the cervix and the fallopian tubes connect the uterus to the ovaries. The uterus is where the semen is received for reproducing, and the ovaries are what produce the woman’s eggs. A woman’s ovaries are the opposite of scrotum which is a cooler setting for the sperm and must be warm for the eggs to develop. Another interesting difference between the two is that males have a continuous production of sperm, and a female’s body stops at menopause. A male is able to produce one billion sperms per month while a female is only able to produce a single ovum per month.
