Prostate
...  prostate is a very important organ of the male reproductive system that makes person a man. Its main function is to keep and secrete a slightly alkaline fluid, white-milky in colour that is the part of semen. Generally, it constitutes 25-30% of the volume of the semen along with spermatozoa and seminal vesicle fluid. This prostatic fluid has longer survival and better protection of the  ...

Ductus Deferens
...  Ductus Deferens is also termed as the vas deferens and it forms part of the male reproductive system of humans as well as some kinds of species. There are a couple of ducts that can be found in it which are all muscular tubes that are surrounded by smooth muscles. It connects to the right and left epididymis and moves sperm by way of the ejaculatory ducts. In humans, each of the tubes is  ...

Seminal vesicles
...  of the most important tasks of the male reproductive system is the production of liquid which is termed as seminal fluid. This is the one that goes out with the sperm when it is propelled towards the outside of the body during ejaculation. In many mammals, including humans, the majority of the seminal fluid is produced on the seminal vesicle. The organ is composed of two vesicles, which are  ...

Spermatozoa
...  male reproductive system is composed of the following: male gonads or testes, epididymis, vas deferens, prostate gland, ejaculatory duct, seminal vesicle, penis, corpus cavernosum, and the urethra. The penis and the testes are the major reproductive organs of man, while the rest are part of the reproductive process. The vas deferens acts as the passageway of the sperm from the testes to the  ...

Pituitary Hormones
...  by way of the axons of the infundibulum, reaching the lobus nervosa. The lobus nervosa houses the hormone and releases it when the hypothalamus calls for it. Oxytocin (if released) journeys to the female reproductive system and triggers fetal gestation contractions. After birth, this hormone helps with the ejaculation process of the mamary glands and the areola for lactation. A high oxytocin  ...

Ejaculatory Duct
...  the prostate gland. The male urethra has two functions. It could serve as the urinary system and a part of the reproductive system that allows the urine and semen to pass through. This part of the male reproductive system also tell when the tubular ducts are about to  ...

Spermatic Ducts
...  spermatic ducts are the complex part of the male reproductive system designed to transport and store sperms. Basically, its responsibility is to keep the sperm cells until they are ready for release, and to transport them to the urethra by passing through the testes. These ducts does not form the semen - it forms through the reproductive glands. The so-called glands make additives to create a  ...
