Chapter 28 THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS Chapter Synopsis In this chapter students are introduced to the anatomy and physiology of the male and female reproductive systems. Emphasis is placed on the endocrine relationships of the male and female systems, particularly the ovarian and uterine cycles. This is followed by a discussion of the methods of birth control, including the advantages and disadvantages and estimated failure rates of each method. The developmental anatomy of the reproductive system is covered followed by the effects of aging on the systems. The disorders of the reproductive systems treated included sexually transmitted diseases (STD's); male disorders, such as testicular cancer and prostate disorders; and erectile dysfunction; and female disorders, such as premenstrual syndrome, ovarian cancer, and vulvovaginal candidiasis.
