Select two different components, structures, hormones, or processes of the reproductive system (one for the male and one for the female) and write a brief synopsis of the impact of a dysfunction of this component, structure, hormone, or process on reproduction. In other words, discuss how a specific problem would make it more difficult or impossible to reproduce (fertilize an egg or become pregnant). Be detailed in your discussion of the anatomy and physiology of reproduction and be very clear about the impact this problem would have on reproduction. Identify any disease or disorder by name.
A table of the reproductive system
Step 1 Create a table.
Create a table that identifies the structures of the female reproductive system and defines the functions of each structure using images from the Internet. Be very clear in your descriptions.
Step 2 Add to your table.
Using the information in your textbook, add the phases of the menstrual cycle to the table you created in Step 1. Your goal is to identify the physiological processes in each phase of the cycle. Be creative. Use images, if you choose.
