This structure helps regulate the temperature of the testes

Dartos muscle

This structure is the site of sperm production.

Seminiferous tubules

How many seminiferous tubules are found in each lobule?


These cells may eventually become spermatozoa


These cells secrete testosterone.

Leydig cells

This hormone stimulates Leydig cells to secrete testosterone


The straight tubules in the testis lead into the

Rete testis

The function of the epididymis is

Sperm maturation

This is formed by the union of the duct from the seminal vesicle and the ampulla of the
vas deferens.

Ejaculatory duct

This lies posterior to the bladder and anterior to the rectum and secretes an alkaline,
fructose filled fluid.

Seminal vesicles

These are located inferior to the prostate on either side of the membranous urethra
within the deep muscles of the perineum.

Cowper's glands

This is composed of three cylindrical masses of erectile tissue each surrounded by a
fibrous tissue.


This ligament arises from the pubic symphysis in males.

Suspensory ligament

What is produced by the ovaries?

Secondary oocytes, estrogen and progesterone

This attaches the ovaries and the uterus to the pelvic wall

Suspensory ligament

This is the site of fertilization.

uterine tubes

This is the portion of the uterus that opens into the vagina.


Anterior to the vagina and urethral openings is the

Mons pubis

Skene's glands secrete


This hormone promotes the final step of spermatogenesis.


This hormone triggers ovulation.


This is secreted by the corpus luteum after ovulation.


This is the uterine phase when the thickness of the endometrium doubles.

Proliferative phase

This is the ovarian phase between the end of menstruation and beginning of ovulation.

Preovulatory phase

The septum of the tissue is made up of a subcutaneous layer and which muscle tissue?

25-28 I

What is line "F" pointing to?

29-31 Seminiferous tubules

Which structure is part of the connection of the uterus to the pelvic cavity?

32-35 E

What is line "C" pointing to?

32-35 Ovary

This is the site for implantation of a fertilized ovum.

32-35 D

This opens from the uterus to the vagina

32-35 F

This consists of primary oocyte that is surrounded by several layers of cuboidal cells
called granulosa.

36-40 B

Where is the mature (graafian) follicle?

36-40 F

Where is the corpus albicans?

36-40 none of these choices

This will produce progesterone, estrogens, relaxin and inhibin

36-40 I

What is line "D" pointing to?

36-40 Germinal epithelium

At which location in the figure do sperm and seminal vesicle secretions first join
together in their path to the exterior?

41-45 I

Which structure in the figure secretes seminal plasmin, proteolytic enzymes like
pepsinogen and lysozyme, and citric acid?

41-45 B

Which structure in the figure secretes an alkaline fluid that protects sperm by
neutralizing acids in the urethra?

41-45 C

Which structures in the figure together secrete liquid components of semen?

41-45 B and C and L

Which structure in the figure is the corpus spongiosum penis?

41-45 F

Which structure in the figure is the head of epididymis?

46-50 A

Which structure in the figure is a serous membrane derived from the peritoneum and
forms during descent of the testes?

46-50 B

Which structure in the figure is made of dense irregular connective tissue that forms
septa dividing the testes into lobules?

46-50 C

Mature sperm arrive at the efferent ducts in the epididymis immediately from which
structure in the figure?

46-50 F

Where in the figure is the tail of epididymis?

46-50 D

Which cell in the figure contains a diploid nucleus?

51-55 A

Which list below lists cells in the figure that all contain haploid nuclei?

51-55 C and E and F

Where in the figure will you find mature sperm?

51-55 G

Which cell in the figure is actively secreting testosterone?

56-60 A

Which structure in the figure is the basement membrane?

56-60 H

Menarche is the

first menses

Male reproductive system arises from

Wolffian ducts

Female reproductive system arises from

Mullerian ducts

During fetal development these cells give rise to primary oocytes.


The major hormone secreted from granulosa cells is


Zygote is

a diploid fertilized ovum

This hormone inhibits the release of FSH from the pituitary gland


In male embryos, this hormone is responsible for the development of the urethra,
prostate, and external genitals.


The primary action of combined oral contraceptives is to

All of these choices are correct.

How does the reproductive system affect the skeletal system?

Estrogen causes epiphyseal plates of both to close, ending growth in height.

A Pap smear is a test performed to detect

cancer of the cervix
