2 Objectives Identify structures of the female & male sexual anatomy Explain the female and male reproductive cycleUnderstand how STI’s are transmitted, who’s at risk, and ways to decrease the risk of contractionList the 3 different types of STI’sUnderstand how STI’s can be asymptomatic, yet still have chronic effectsDifferentiate between the various STI’sIdentify treatments for the various STI’sUnderstand the complications of STI’s
3 Female AnatomyLabia majora & minora: protect the vulva, urethral opening, and vaginaClitoris: consists of erectile tissue and results in swelling during sexual arousalOvaries: eggs produced hereFallopian tube: extends from the ovaries to the uterus, fertilization occurs hereUterus: fetus develops here, two parts: fundus & cervixCervix: connects the vagina & uterus
4 Male AnatomyPenis: root – attaches to the body, shaft, & glans penis - covered by foreskinScrotum: holds the testiclesTestes: sperm and hormone productionVas deferens: long tube through which sperm travel during ejaculationSeminal vesicles: secretes fluid, providing nourishment & enhancing sperm motilityProstate: secretes thin, milky fluid into the urethra, increasing sperm motilityCowper’s gland: secretes the lubricating fluid, sperm left in the urethra from a previous ejaculation will combine with the fluid to form the pre-ejaculate lubricant
