Sperm and seminal fluid mix in the ejaculatory duct and enter the prostatic urethra during ejaculation Accessory Glands: Seminal Vesicles
Seminal Lie on the posterior wall of the bladder and secrete 60% of the volume of semen
Join the ductus deferens to form the ejaculatory duct
The composition of the gland secretions include: High concentration of fructose that is easily metabolized by spermatozoa Prostaglandins that stimulate smooth muscle contractions in both male and female reproductive tract Fibrinogen that forms temporary clot within the vagina after ejaculation
When the inactive sperms mix with the seminal fluid they undergo the first step of activation and the flagella start moving (in some book this is done by the help of the prostate)
The secretion of the seminal gland are discharged into the ejaculatory duct under the control of the sympathetic system Seminal Vesicle Accessory Glands: Prostate Accessory Glands: Prostate Gland Doughnutshaped gland that encircles part of the ______ inferior to the bladder
Milky, slightly acid fluid, accounts for one
third of the semen volume
Plays a role in the activation of sperm
