2 Human Male Anatomy Testes Male gonads: produce male gametes & male hormonesSuspended outside body in sac called scrotum, for maintaining proper temperature
3 Human Male Anatomy Epididymis Coiled tube within the scrotum in which the sperm complete their maturationVas deferensA duct that transports sperm from the epididymis toward the urethraVas deferensEpididymis
4 Human Male Anatomy Glands adding nutrient secretions to semen: Seminal vesicles (one pair at base of urethra)Prostate (one lying below urethra)Bulbourethral glands (one pair located beneath the prostate)SeminalvesiclesProstateBulbourethralgland
5 Human Female Anatomy Ovary Oviduct (Fallopian tubes) Female gonads; producing female gametes & hormonesSuspended below oviductOviduct (Fallopian tubes)Transports eggs from ovary to uterus; site of fertilization
6 Human Female Anatomy Uterus (womb) Hollow, muscular organ where implantation, development & labor occurThe lower end of the uterus, called the cervix, opens into the birth canal, the vagina
7 The Menstrual Cycle Follicle Stage In the ovary, the follicle containing the ovum (egg), developsIn the uterus, the endometrium (lining) begins to thickenIn the glandular tissue, estrogen peaksfollicleegg
8 The Menstrual Cycle Ovulation In the ovary, the follicle ruptures, releasing the ovum into the oviductIn the uterus, the endometrium continues to thickenIn the pituitary gland, LH peaks
9 The Menstrual Cycle Luteal Stage In the ovary, the ruptured follicle becomes the corpus luteumIn the uterus, the endometrium builds to its maximumIn the glandular tissue, progesterone peaksCorpusluteum
10 The Menstrual Cycle Menstrual stage In the ovary, the new follicle begins to developIn the uterus, the menstrual flow beginsIn the glands, hormones level off

12 Development Fertilization Union of the egg and sperm; the zygote begins dividing as it moves through oviductImplantationAfter repeated divisions, the blastocyst attaches to the endometrium
13 DevelopmentThe embryo (surrounded by the amniotic sac) produces the placenta (formed from the chorion) attached to the embryo by the umbilical cord (formed by the allantois & yolk sac)Placenta provides food & oxygen and removes wastes during fetus’ development
