Male sexual anatomy

The organs and glands that make up the male sexual anatomy include:

  • Testicles - after puberty, a person's testicles, placed at the base of the penis, produce male sex cells referred to as sperm. Additionally beginning at puberty, testicles produce testosterone, the male intercourse hormone. A person's sperm production, as soon as started, maintains in the course of his lifestyles; sexually mature adult males produce thousands and thousands of sperm cells every day. The testicles are positioned beneath the penis, outside the frame, wherein the ideal temperature to make sperm may be maintained as it's miles numerous tiers too hot for sperm to be feasible (capable of fertilizing eggs) inside the body.
  • Scrotum - the testicles are protected through a pouch of skin called the scrotum. The scrotum and the muscles surrounding it can pull the testicles toward the frame when they are too bloodless, and loosen up far away from the frame when the testicles are too warm. The scrotum also holds the epididymis.
  • Epididymis and vas deferens - the epididymis stores the sperm after the testicles produce them, and the vas deferens transports the sperm from the epididymis to the urethra.
  • Urethra - the urethra is a duct, or tube, that transports fluids from the inner of the body to the out of doors. In each woman and men, the urethra is hooked up to the bladder and is used to pass urine out of the body. In men, but, the urethra is also connected to the 'accessory glands,' which produce semen, and to the vas deferens, the duct that brings the sperm from the epididymus.
  • Penis - the penis is perhaps the maximum seen a part of the male sexual anatomy. It's far made of parts, the shaft and the head (also known as the glans.) the shaft houses the corpora cavernosa (flexible cylinders produced from erectile tissue that run the period of the penis and assist erections), and the corpus spongiosum (erectile tissue surrounding the urethra). In its reproductive capacity, the urethral establishing on the tip of the penis grants sperm into the vagina. Urine also flows out of the body via the urethral commencing.
  • Accent glands - there are numerous glands that work together to provide semen or seminal fluid. Sperm can stay in the woman reproductive system for as much as 48 hours, and seminal fluid enables the sperm move around and stay nourished. The seminal vesicle produces a fluid that gives strength to the sperm as they seek out the girl sex cellular or the egg. The prostate gland makes a special fluid that allows the sperm pass greater fast thru the woman reproductive machine. Every other set of glands referred to as bulbourethral or cowper's glands, makes a small quantity of fluid that helps guard the sperm on its way via the urethra through neutralizing any leftover traces of acidic urine.

Knee Anatomy - Better Understanding Helps Prevent Knee Injuries!

The knee joint is the meeting point of several bones. The knee bone's connected to the thigh bone at knee joint. The thigh bone or femur is the longest bone in the human body and it sits directly above the knee. Below the knee joint lies the shinbone or tibia down to the ankle. Tibia is partnered with the fibula, which runs along the outside of the leg. The kneecap also called as patella lies in between, protecting the knee joint. When the leg bends, the patella moves on the front part of the femur.

Knee Joint Compartments - 

Arthritis affects the ends of the bones, or spots where the bones in the knee joint move against each other. The joint capsule is a thick ligamentous structure that surrounds the entire knee that contains synovial membrane which provides nourishment to all the surrounding structures. The synovial fluid produced by the synovial membrane lubricates the knee joint. The capsule itself is strengthened by the surrounding ligaments.

Cartilage in the knees - 


Cartilage covers up the knee joint's ends thus keeping the bones from rubbing together and creating friction. This makes cartilage critical to keeping the knees pain-free when one is running, walking bending or squatting. There are two types of cartilage in the knee joint. Meniscus cartilage makes up the crescent-shaped disks on the inside and outside of the knee between the femur and tibia. Meniscus cartilage works like a shock absorber, providing cushion to the joint when walking to running. Joint or articular cartilage covers the bones of the knee, making smooth and friction free movement.


Cartilage is about eighty percent water when we are young, and can lose water content over time to drop to about seventy percent. The knees are filled with fluid that helps to keep the cartilage smooth and slippery. If this fluid is too much can stretch out the joint and less can lead to friction between the bones.

Hence, it is imperative to know how the parts of the knee joint work together, as it is the first step one can take to maintain or restore knee health. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Pain And Quality of Life With Endometriosis!

The tissue that lines the uterus is known as the endometrium. In some cases, it can grow outside the uterus. This is known as endometriosis. Endometriosis usually involves organs in the pelvic cavity such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowel and lining of the pelvic cavity. In rare cases, it may involve the vagina, cervix and bladder as well.

Depending on the location and extent of endometrial tissue, it can be classified into four stages ranging from minimal to severe. Most cases of endometriosis fall into the minimal or mild category which involves mild scarring and superficial tissue implants. Moderate or severe endometriosis can cause cysts and severe scarring. Infertility is also commonly associated with severe endometriosis.

Pain in the pelvic area just before and during menstruation is one of the most characteristic symptoms of this disorder. This is because the overgrown endometrial tissue acts like normal endometrial tissue and is shed during menstruation. The only difference is that since there is no exit for this overgrown tissue, it is trapped in the pelvic cavity. The location of the implantation of endometrial tissue also plays a role in the amount of pain experienced. The deeper the implant, more the pain. Implants near areas with high nerve density are also more likely to be painful than implants in areas with low nerve density.  These implants may also release substances into the blood stream that can cause pain.

Other symptoms associated with this disorder are:

  • Painful intercourse
  • Painful urination
  • Pain during bowel movements
  • Infertility

These symptoms especially the pelvic pain can vary from month to month in terms of duration and intensity.

A few simple changes in your diet can help manage the symptoms associated with this disorder and in some cases, prevent it as well. Avoid processed food and foods that are high in sodium content. You should also avoid high-fat dairy and food that is rich in arachidonic acid. Instead, increase your consumption of carbs and green leafy vegetables. You could also add two tablespoons of walnut oil a day to your diet to help combat inflammation and the other effects of arachidonic acid.

Early stages of this disease can be treated with hormone therapy, but if it has progressed to the later stages, surgery may be needed. This surgery is performed laparoscopically and aims at removing all the implanted tissue from outside the uterus. However, in cases where the anatomy of the pelvic organs has been distorted by the implants, a hysterectomy may be required. This option, however, it usually considered only in cases where a woman does not have any plans of conceiving more children.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
