- Slide 1
- Slide 2
- Produced by endocrine glands Male endocrine glands = Testes Female endocrine glands = Ovaries
- Slide 3
- What happens when a male or female goes through puberty? Why?
- Slide 4
- Testosterone Secondary Sex Characteristics = Enable body to produce gametes Lower pitch voice Causes the testicles to descend Changes in body form Growth of beard/body hair Throughout the life of a man, his body will continue to produce testosterone, although the production rate will decline in old age. Females also produce testosterone Helps with osteoporosis & production of estrogen
- Slide 5
- Estrogen & Progesterone produced by ovaries LH & FSH produced by pituitary gland Luteinizing Hormone Follicle-Stimulating Hormone Functions = 1. Secondary Sex Characteristics = enable body to produce gametes Development of breasts Change in body form Growth of body hair 2. Enable body to prepare for pregnancy **Men also produce estrogen and progesterone!!
- Slide 6
- 1. The release of a mature egg from a follicle 2. The preparation of the uterus for pregnancy
- Slide 7
- Begins a puberty Ends at menopause Normal (average) cycle is 28 days can vary greatly and is affected by illness, stress and other factors.
- Slide 8
- Four stages: 1.Follicle stage 2.Ovulation 3.Corpus leutem stage 4.Menstruation
- Slide 9
- Four stages: 1.Follicle stage: FSH stimulates maturation of egg in follicle. Estrogen from follicle stimulates uterine lining to thicken. This takes 10-14 days to complete
- Slide 10
- Four stages: 2.Ovulation Mature egg released from follicle. FSH inhibited by estrogen -> stimulates release of LH This happens around/on day 14.
- Slide 11
- Four stages: 3.Corpus luteum stage 10-12 days in length Burst follicle develops into corpus luteum -> produces progesterone Progesterone stimulates further thickening of uterine lining.
- Slide 12
- Four stages: 4.Menstruation occurs if no egg is fertilized. Progesterone secretion decreases Uterine lining degenerates Tissue/blood are discharged from body
- Slide 13
