The Importance of Sperm Cells in the Reproductive Process
The unique body of a male is incomplete without the unique reproductive organ that leads to the complete summation of the reproductive process. Similarly happens to be the case of sperm cells that are the most beneficient releases of the human penis, which is considered to be the origin for transmission of semen to the female egg during the time of procreation. Talking specifically about a male reproductive system, it is specially designed to produce, collect, and transport sperm to heighten the causes of pleasure and mating at the same time.
Covering both on the exterior and interior pelvic cavity, the male organs are unlike the female genitalia that grounds over the testicles, the complete duct system comprising of the sperm duct (vas deferens and epididymis), the accessory glands comprising of seminal vesicles and the prostate gland) and the penis. Usually, after a male attains puberty at the age of 18, he is supposed to produce around millions of sperm cells that extend up to 0.02 inches long.
The production of semen occurs through a stepwise process. First, the system of small tubes in the part of testicles known as seminiferous tubules stores and nurtures the germ sperm cells, which is, in turn, turned into sperm by the male hormones called testosterone. These specific cells divide and transform into the minute structure like tadpoles that resembles with a short head and a usually long tail.
These tails throttle the sperm to a tube that is located behind the testicles known as epididymis. For around five weeks, the semen travels through this epididymis and transforms into their developmental stage. Once it is discharged out of the tube, it moves into the vas deferens. Usually, during the time of stimulating ejaculation, the sperm gets mixed with the seminal fluid. The same whitish liquid gets released during masturbation, which is produced by the likes of accessory glands. When semen is formed, it ejaculates from the penis, bypassing the urethra chamber.
The production of new cells takes about a period of 64 days. It is known as spermatogenesis, which means the body replenishes the semen to make production possible to regenerate up to a count of around 20 to 400 million sperm cells to maintain a healthy supply of concentration.
The usual effects of counting low sperm than the usual amount are called oligospermia, and that of the complete absence is known as azoospermia. It implies the hormones are not able to originate more germ cells, which also leads to problems of reproduction in the long run. The underlying problems can even cause the inability to produce a child if hormonal imbalances or chromosomal inability or any problems that block the sperm passage are not treated with proper medical assistance.
The problems generally affect low sex drive, swelling in the testicle portion or other hormonal inefficiency that can lead to other prostate problems and cause deficiency to the health by several erections or ejaculation disturbances.
It can be taken away from the above that sperm cells distribute sufficient health and nourishment to the semen that every man ejaculates as the final product. Problems of precum or absence of sperm can cause by several daily lifestyle problems. Like always, the prevention of unhealthy substances is better than checking up on a medical professional.
