The male reproductive system is an organ system composed of male sperm also known as gametes. This organ system can be divided into a couple of parts. The first part is how sperm is produced and stored in the male body. The second one is what glands generate the ejaculatory process and its function, and the third part is the reproduction cycle and how sperm is deposited and fertilized in the female reproductive system.

Going into further detail, immature sperm cells are accumulated in the testes which are located inside of the scrotum. From the testes, sperm make their way through the epididymis to become mature sperm cells. The genesis of the ejaculatory fluids are produced by the prostate gland, the vas deferens, and the seminal vesicles. The sperm is mixed with ejaculatory fluids made from the seminal vesicles and the prostate. When the semen is made, it is ejaculated through the urethra from the penis. Getting into the reproduction cycle itself from a male perspective, the sperm is deposited into the vagina, through the cervix, to the uterus, to reach its final destination, the oviduct. From here, the eggs in the female body are released and meet the sperm in the fallopian tube of the female.

The female reproductive system is known to house fetuses and the nurturing of them. The female reproductive system is also divided into a couple of parts. The vagina is internal while the vulva is external. The vulva includes the labias, the urethra and the clitoris. The vagina is what is attached to the uterus from the cervix. The ovaries are where the eggs are housed and released into the fallopian tubes. This occurrence happens every 28 days which is known as the menstrual cycle.By traveling into the fallopian tubes, when in reproduction, the egg attaches to the endometrium and when ready, housed by the uterus for the development of the fetus. When this is happening, the female starts to produce milk from the mammary glands to be able to feed the baby once it is born.
