Male And Female Urinary System Quiz! Test

The urinary tract system is charged with disposing waste from the blood in the form of urine, and this is not to say that blood should be seen in the urine. If it does, it can be a signal for something being wrong. In human anatomy class, we got to discuss the reproductive system in-depth, and the final chapters were in the male and female urinary systems. Refresh your memory by taking this test.
