Function of Reproductive System

The Reproductive System produces reproductive cells in which the females nurtures and protects developing embryo.

Spermatogenesis

Spermatogenesis is the process of sperm production that comes from the immature germ cell in a male.This process happens in side the testes.While spermatogenesis is happing a male germ cell size increases to form a diploid primary spermatocyte. Then the diploid goes through mitoses phase 1 then its division to form 2 equal haploid.Then each of the secondary spermatcyte goes through mitoses phase 2 to make 2 haploids.Then the spermatids are turned in to sperm which is called spermatogenesis.

Oogenesis

Oogenesis is the when the haploid cells from an original diploid cell, called a primary oocyte, through meiosis. The female ovaries contain the primary oocytes. Oogenesis leads to the production of one egg cell, from each primary oocyte the four daughter cells that are produced when the primary oocyte divides then three come out much smaller than the last one. The smaller cells, are called polar bodies, then leaving only the larger ovum as the final product of oogenesis. The production of one egg cell via oogenesis which normally occurs only once a month.

Disorder in the Reproductive System

Endometriosis is a disorder in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside of it. Some symptoms painful periods,excessive bleeding and infertility.Treatment are pain medications,hormone therapy,and

conservative surgery.
