||The purpose of the male reproductive system is to 1) enable the man to have sexual intercourse and 2) to fertilize the female eggs with sperm. Sperm as well as the male sex hormones, are produced by the testes which are paired glands contained in the scrotum. The testes produce sperm as well as hormones called androgens. Some of the male sexual organs are visible and some are hidden. |
The Comprehensive Thyroid Assessment
submitted by Dr. Gary Farr 6/24/2004
The Comprehensive Thyroid Assessment is a thorough analysis of thyroid hormone metabolism, including central thyroid gland regulation and activity, thyroid production and secretion, peripheral thyroid conversion, and thyroid autoimmunity. This test allows the practitioner to pinpoint common imbalances that underlie a broad spectrum of chronic illness.
The Male Reproductive System

The male glands include the seminal vesicles, prostate gland, and bulbourethral glands. These glands allow 50% of the equation for human reproduction to occur. We discuss the male reproductive system.

The testes, or testicles, are the male gonads. They contain germ cells that differentiate into mature spermatozoa, supporting cells called Sertoli cells, and testosterone-producing cells called the Leydig cells. The germ cells migrate to the fetal testes from the embryonic yolk sac. The Sertoli cells are analogous to the granulosa cells in the ovary, and the Leydig (interstitial) cells are analogous to the stromal cells of the ovary.
