Male Reproductive System: External Anatomy

4. Male Reproductive System: External Anatomy

Learn about the structure and function of the external reproductive structures of the male. This includes study of the scrotal sac, the parts of the penis and the erectile tissues.

Sperm's Journey from the Testes to Urethral Orifice

5. Sperm's Journey from the Testes to Urethral Orifice

Follow newly created sperm as they make their way from their origin of creation, the male testes, all the way to the exit of the male reproductive tract.

The HPG Axis: Hormones of Male Reproduction

6. The HPG Axis: Hormones of Male Reproduction

Do you know how your body communicates? How does the brain get in touch with other parts of the body? In this lesson, you will learn about how the male's brain uses hormones to communicate to the testes as a way of regulating reproduction.

Female Reproductive System: Internal Anatomy

7. Female Reproductive System: Internal Anatomy

Ever wonder where a female produces her eggs or how they get from the ovary to the uterus? Find out in this lesson about the internal reproductive anatomy of females.

The Uterus and Uterine Wall: Structure and Parts

8. The Uterus and Uterine Wall: Structure and Parts

Learn all about the structure responsible for the development of babies in this lesson on uterine anatomy. Discover the three layers of the uterus and each layer's purpose.

External Anatomy of the Female Reproductive System

9. External Anatomy of the Female Reproductive System

We all know that men and women are different. But just how different are they? Learn a little more about the differences between men and women in this lesson on female external reproductive anatomy.

HPG Axis: Hormonal Control of the Ovarian Cycle

10. HPG Axis: Hormonal Control of the Ovarian Cycle

Everything in the female reproductive system is connected. See how the brain interacts with the ovaries during the female's ovarian cycle in this lesson covering the female HPG axis.

Phases of The Ovarian Cycle: Overview from Puberty to Menopause

11. Phases of The Ovarian Cycle: Overview from Puberty to Menopause

Just like the human body has to grow and mature before it is ready to reproduce the female's gamete, the egg also has to grow and mature. This lesson will introduce the process through which that occurs, the ovarian cycle.

Follicular Phase of the Ovarian Cycle

12. Follicular Phase of the Ovarian Cycle

The female gamete, the oocyte, grows and matures in a process known as the ovarian cycle. Learn about the first part of the ovarian cycle, the follicular phase, in this lesson.

Luteal Phase of the Ovarian Cycle

13. Luteal Phase of the Ovarian Cycle

Each month, the ovaries recruit and mature a subset of oocytes in preparation for ovulation. Learn what happens after ovulation occurs in the second phase of the ovarian cycle, known as the luteal phase.

The Uterine Cycle: Phases and Endometrial Changes

14. The Uterine Cycle: Phases and Endometrial Changes

Just like a woman's ovaries go through the monthly cycle of recruiting eggs, her uterus also goes through a monthly cycle as it prepares for the possible implantation of a fertilized egg. This lesson will introduce you to the phases and hormones of the female's uterine cycle.

The Uterine Cycle: Menses

15. The Uterine Cycle: Menses

Each month the female's uterus prepares for the potential of pregnancy. However, pregnancy doesn't occur the majority of the time. In those months, the female's uterus has to 'reset' itself for the next month. It does that during the first phase of the uterine cycle, menses.

The Uterine Cycle: Proliferative Phase

16. The Uterine Cycle: Proliferative Phase

A woman's body goes through many changes as it prepares for the possibility of pregnancy. Learn about how the uterus prepares for pregnancy by building up its inner lining during this lesson on the proliferative phase of the uterine cycle.

The Uterine Cycle: Secretory Phase

17. The Uterine Cycle: Secretory Phase

The third (and final) phase of the uterine cycle is the secretory phase. During this phase, the uterine tissue regrowth is completed in preparation for the possibility of pregnancy and the implantation of a fertilized egg.

The Female Reproductive Axis: Coordination of the Brain, Ovaries & Uterus

18. The Female Reproductive Axis: Coordination of the Brain, Ovaries & Uterus

Without proper communication between the brain, ovaries and uterus, reproduction might not be as efficient. Learn about how these organs work together to ensure the body is ready for reproduction.

Ovulation to Implantation: Oocyte's Path through Uterine Tubes

19. Ovulation to Implantation: Oocyte's Path through Uterine Tubes

Follow the female's egg as it leaves the ovary and travels down the uterine tube on its way to the uterus - all with hopes of meeting up with a male's sperm along the way.

Amnion: Definition & Function

20. Amnion: Definition & Function

The amnion is a thin membrane that forms the amniotic sac. It is necessary to protect a developing embryo within a mother during pregnancy. This lesson discusses the amnion and its functions.

Cervix: Definition, Anatomy & Function

21. Cervix: Definition, Anatomy & Function

The cervix is a prominent and dynamic part of the female reproductive system. Here we will examine the definition of the cervix, the structure, and function and will finish up with a short quiz to test your understanding.

Fetal Blood: Circulation Diagram & Concept

22. Fetal Blood: Circulation Diagram & Concept

Have you ever wondered how a fetus gets oxygen in the womb, which is an aquatic environment? The answer lies in the way a fetus's circulatory system differs from that of an organism outside the womb. This lesson covers fetal blood and circulation.

Primary Spermatocytes: Definition & Concept

23. Primary Spermatocytes: Definition & Concept

A primary spermatocyte has a lot of work and change to get through on its way to maturity. Learn how each one of these cells is unique, even though there are millions produced each day.

Secondary Oocyte: Definition & Concept

24. Secondary Oocyte: Definition & Concept

The secondary oocyte has survived and continued to mature in an often hostile physical environment. Learn about the road to development for these reproductive cells.

Secondary Spermatocytes: Definition & Concept

25. Secondary Spermatocytes: Definition & Concept

Secondary spermatocytes are on their way to becoming mature sperm, and they do it pretty quickly. Learn about how these cells are unique and how they make reproduction possible.

Seminal Vesicles: Definition & Function

26. Seminal Vesicles: Definition & Function

Semen is the fluid produced by the male reproductive system to carry sperm. Seminal vesicles play a major role in the production of semen. This lesson discusses seminal vesicles and their contribution to semen production.
