Reproduction Questions and Answers (Q&A)

Castration is the removal of testes before puberty. The testes are responsible for producing testosterone. The testosterone in turn is responsible for the secondary sexual characteristics such as the voice.

The testis need a temperature of 1 degree less than the body temperature. If the testes are removed, the hormone is not produced in the body and the boy remains a boy, without maturation of the external genital or the development of any secondary sexual characteristics. It is the same as a male being born without testes. He will still be a boy, but he can never become a man or reproduce.

Spermatogenesis is the process of formation of male gametes. This process happens in the seminiferous tubules of the testes. Primary spermatocyte divides into secondary spermatocytes, and each secondary spermatocyte divides into two spermatids. The method of spermatogenesis is completed in the testes. Spermatids then mature into sperm to be able to carry out in the process of reproduction. The entire process takes about 74 days to be completed. Oogenesis is the process of formation of female gametes called ovum. The process takes place in the ovaries.


Before birth, the process of oogenesis begins. At puberty, primary oocytes divide to form secondary oocytes and a polar body. Secondary oocytes divide again and create an ovum and of cold body. Oocyte matures outside the ovaries. The entire process takes days to years to be completed.

This is true. FSH is a follicle stimulating hormone (that’s what FSH stands for), and according to Biology-Pages, it does different things in a male than it does in females. This is why the cell receptors are different; since the functions are different, it makes sense that the receptors for this hormone are different. In a male, it aids with producing sperm. In a female, this hormone helps with assisted reproduction (in-vitro fertilization, for example).

LH, on the other hand, stands for “luteinizing hormone”. Again, it plays different roles in men and women, since it also has to do with the reproductive organs and hormones. In males, this hormone helps kick off the secretion of testosterone. However, in females, it promotes the ovulation during a menstrual cycle.

It should be seminiferous tubules and LH, for sperm is produced in the ST with the Sertoli cells and LH stimulates the follicle.

The main function of reproduction is to make sure that people will be able to make certain species survive. There are a lot of living things who would like to make sure that their lives will go on and on. The reproductive system of males and females would have different functions.

The female reproductive system will be in charge of releasing the egg while the male reproductive system will be releasing the sperm. When a sperm successfully penetrates the egg, that is the time when fertilization will occur. Just remember that it does not mean that just because fertilization has already occurred, this will continue. There are some instances when fertilization will happen but will not continue.
