Reproductive system

This system is concerned with procreation. It is composed differently in males and females. The male reproductive structures are:

 

The testis

The testis is an oval organ about the size of a kolanut. The pair is located in the scrotum. The testis subserves two functions: production of testosterone (the ‘male’ hormone) and sperm production.

 

The epididymis and vas deferens

The epididymis is a firm structure, attached behind the testis. It is hollow and continues further as the vas deferens. This then pierces the prostate and opens by the ejaculatory duct into the urethra. This arrangement provides a channel through which semen leaves the male genitals.

 

The prostate and seminal vesicles

The prostate is a small, solid gland located at the base of the urinary bladder. It is found only in males and is normally about the size of a walnut. The prostate is wrapped around the urethra, the tube that through which urine and semen move out of the body. It provides about 30% of the volume of seminal fluid.

 

The seminal vesicle is a thin-walled, elongated sac applied to the base of the bladder above the prostate. They produce about 60% of the seminal fluid volume.

 

The penis

This is the organ for copulation. The urethra runs through it and it fits into the vagina in the female during intercourse such that semen may be deposited there. The penis is composed of sponge-like tissues whose structure at any time determines the size and shape of the penis. In the non-excited state, the tissues are empty and the penis is in its flabby state. When excited, the tissues are engorged with blood and the penis is larger and erect.

 

In the uncircumcised state, the tip of the penis (the glans) is covered by a fold of skin called the prepuce. The prepuce is cut away during circumcision.

 

The female reproductive organs are:

The uterus

This is a muscular organ whose function is to provide a nidus for the developing foetus. In virgins, it is the shape of a flattened pear and about 8 by 5 by 3 cm in dimension. The uterus has 3 parts: a fundus, a body and a cervix.

 

The fallopian tubes enter the sides of the uterus below the fundus. The cervix is the neck of the uterus and protrudes into the vault of the vagina where it opens. The body of the uterus tapers downwards from the fundus, and the cavity of the uterus occupies it.

 

The fallopian (uterine) tubes

Each tube is 10 cm long. It has one narrow end joined to the uterus and a wider, trumpet-shaped end with a number of finger-like processes called fimbriae. One of these fimbriae is longer and typically applied to the ovary.

 

The tube conducts sperm to the egg released by the ovary for fertilisation. Afterwards, the product of fertilisation passes back through it for implantation in the uterus.

 

The ovary

This organ is ovoid in shape and smaller than the testis measuring 3 cm long, 2 cm wide and 1 cm thick. It is smaller before the first menses and after the menopause. The ovaries are normally positioned on either sides of the pelvic cavity such that they can be reached through the vagina by the tip of an examining finger.

 

The ovaries produce ova (eggs) as well as the ‘female’ hormones oestrogen and progesterone.

 

The vagina

This is a highly expandable muscular tube about 10 cm in length. Its lower end is the introitus which opens in between the labia on the outside. Its upper end is slightly expanded and receives the uterine cervix which projects into it. The urethra opens immediately in front of the vaginal orifice.

 

The vulva

The female external genitals include the mons pubis, the labia majora, labia minora, the clitoris and the vestibule with its glands. They are collectively called the vulva.

 

All the structures seen in the male are present in the female, but greatly modified for functional reasons. The mons pubis is the mound of hairy skin and fat in front of the junction of the two pubic bones. It extends backwards on either side as the labia majora (larger lips) which represents the scrotum.

 

The labia minora (smaller lips) corresponds to the spongy tissue in the penis, and forms the boundaries of the vestibule. The clitoris has a similar structure to the penis (only smaller and doesn’t contain the urethra) and is highly sensitive to sexual stimulation. It is usually overlapped by the prepuce (foreskin).

 

The vestibule contains the external opening of the urethra and the opening of the vagina. The glands of the vestibule may play a minor role in lubricating the lower vagina.

 

The hymen is a fold of tissue of variable extent and thickness at the margins of the vaginal opening. It may be absent from birth or may completely close the opening, in which case it has to be cut open at the age when menstruation begins. Its remains after rupture by the first sexual intercourse may form small tags.

Size: 500 mg Gluten Free Quantity: 250 Caps Reproductive health formula Energizing herb With saponins Maca (Lepidium meyenii) has been used for centuries by indigenous Peruvians as a food source, as well as for increasing stamina and energy. More recent scientific studies have demonstrated that Maca supports hormonal balance and both male and female reproductive health. Maca is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru. This product contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives. Time-tested intimacy enhancer dating back to the time of the Incas Boosts sexual satisfaction and performance for both men and women Each capsule contains 500 mg of maca root in a potent 4:1 extract Since the dawn of time, man has searched for substances to help enliven the libido, promote sexual prowess, and stimulate the intimate experience. Long ago, in the jungles of Peru, he found it. Maca, an ancient herb used by Peruvian natives for sexual support, is now available worldwide. Men and women across the globe are discovering its invigorating potential to enhance intimacy. Our maca is concentrated for guaranteed levels of active herbal components. Each capsule contains 500 mg of maca root in a potent 4:1 extract. Product label for Swanson Passion Maca : Lepidium_meyenii 500 mg per capsule Lepidium meyenii, known commonly as maca, is an herbaceous biennial plant of the crucifer family native to the high Andes of Peru around Lake Junin.[1] It is grown for its fleshy hypocotyl (a fused hypocotyl and taproot), which is used as a root vegetable, a medicinal herb, and a supposed aphrodisiac. Its Spanish and Quechua names include maca-maca, maino, ayak chichira, and ayak willku. Constituents The nutritional value of dried maca root is high, similar to cereal grains such as rice and wheat. The average composition is 60-75% carbohydrates, 10-14% protein, 8.5% dietary fiber, and 2.2% fats. Maca is rich in the dietary minerals calcium and potassium (with low content of sodium), and contains the essential trace elements iron, iodine, copper, manganese, and zinc as well as fatty acids including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acids, and 19 amino acids.[8] (1R,3S)-1-Methyltetrahydro-carboline-3-carboxylic acid In addition to sugars and proteins, maca contains uridine, malic acid, and its benzoyl derivative, and the glucosinolates, glucotropaeolin and m-methoxyglucotropaeolin. The methanol extract of maca tuber also contains (1R,3S)-1-methyltetrahydro-carboline-3-carboxylic acid, a molecule which is reported to exert many activities on the central nervous system.[9] Many different alkamides were found in maca.[10] Further, maca contains selenium and magnesium,[citation needed] and includes polysaccharides.[11] Maca's reported beneficial effects for sexual function could be due to its high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients;[12] maca contains a chemical called p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which reputedly has aphrodisiac properties.[2][5] Uses and preparation Maca is mainly grown for the nutritional and health value of its root. The majority of harvested maca is dried. In this form, the hypocotyls can be stored for several years.[1][13] In Peru, maca is prepared and consumed in various ways, although traditionally it always is cooked. The freshly harvested hypocotyl may be roasted in a pit (called huatia), which is considered a delicacy. Fresh roots usually are available only in the vicinity of the growers. The root also can be mashed and boiled to produce a sweet, thick liquid, dried and mixed with milk to form a porridge. The cooked roots also are used with other vegetables in empanadas, jams, or soups. The root may be ground to produce a flour for bread, cakes, or pancakes. If fermented, a weak beer called chicha de maca may be produced. In 2010 a U.S.-based brewery called Andean Brewing Company, became the first company to produce and commercialize beer made from Maca under the brand KUKA Beer. From the black morphotype a liquor is produced. Also the leaves are edible or may serve as animal fodder. They can be prepared raw in salads or cooked much like Lepidium sativum and Lepidium campestre, to which it is closely related genetically.[14] The growing demand of the supplement industry has been one of the primary reasons for maca's expanding cultivation in Peru and Bolivia.[15] The prominent product for export is maca flour, which is a baking flour ground from the hard, dried roots. It is called "harina de maca." Maca flour (powder) is a relatively inexpensive bulk commodity, much like wheat flour or potato flour. The supplement industry uses both the dry roots and maca flour for different types of processing and concentrated extracts. An internet query will show dozens of different extracts available, each touting a particular efficaciousness for a traditional use or health claim. Another common form is maca processed by gelatinization. This is an extrusion process which separates and removes the tough fiber from the roots using gentle heat and pressure, as raw maca is difficult to digest due to its thick fibers and goitrogen content. Gelatinization was developed for maca specifically to mimic the activity of cooking, and to allow gentler digestion. Gelatinized maca is employed mainly for therapeutic and supplement purposes, but also can be used like maca flour, as a flavor in cooking. Available also is a freeze-dried maca juice, which is squeezed from the macerated fresh root, and subsequently freeze-dried high in the Andes. Maca has been harvested and used by humans in the Andean Mountains for centuries. Contrary to frequent claims that maca's cultivation was common in what is today Peru, it has been shown that until the late 1980s, maca has been cultivated only in a limited area around Lake Junin, in Central Peru. Historically, maca often was traded for lowland tropical food staples, such as corn, rice, manioc (tapioca roots), quinoa, and papaya. It also was used as a form of payment of Spanish imperial taxes.[4][16][17] It is cited that maca was eaten by Inca imperial warriors before battles. Their legendary strength allegedly was imparted by the preparatory consumption of copious amounts of maca, fueling formidable warriors. After a city was conquered, the women had to be protected from the Inca warriors, as reportedly they became ambitiously virile from eating such quantities of maca. This is of course an appealing endorsement for the masculine angle of maca's recent marketing campaign.[12] Whether or not this often-repeated legendary use is true has yet to be determined. Those who have studied maca's history have not been able to locate formal mention of this particular use historically.[14][18] Maca root powder Health effects Maca is consumed as food for humans and livestock, suggesting any risk from consumption is rather minimal. It is considered as safe to eat as any other vegetable food, however, maca does contain glucosinolates, which can cause goiters when high consumption is combined with a diet low in iodine. This being said, darker colored maca roots (red, purple, black) contain significant amounts of natural iodine, a 10-gram serving of dried maca generally containing 52 µg of iodine.[2] Although this is common in other foods with high levels of glucosinolate, it is uncertain if maca consumption can cause or worsen a goiter.[citation needed] Aphrodisiac claims Small-scale clinical trials performed in men have suggested that maca extracts can improve semen quality, and boost libido.[19][20] A small double-blind, randomized, parallel group dose-finding pilot study has shown that Maca root may alleviate SSRI-induced sexual dysfunction.[21] A 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 56 subjects found that Maca has no effect on sex hormone levels in men, including LH, FSH, prolactin, 17-OH progesterone, testosterone, or estradiol.[22] A recent review states "Randomized clinical trials have shown that maca has favorable effects on energy and mood, may decrease anxiety and improve sexual desire. Maca has also been shown to improve sperm production, sperm motility, and semen volume."[23] In total more than 160 studies into the health effects of Maca have been indexed by the United States National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.[24] A 2010 review of the extant evidence for the effect of Maca on libido, however, found only tentative support for its aphrodisiac claims.[25] Condition: New

These Tuning forks are with Chakra Color balls. Each ball corrosponds to it’s chakra color. These balls are removable. The Chakras are said to be "force centers" or whorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body, the layers of the subtle bodies in an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation (the fans make the shape of a love heart). Rotating vortices of subtle matter, they are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies. The Chakra Set is a set of Tuning Forks that can be used with the chakra system. There are 7 Tuning Forks in this set. It is based on the mathematical rotation of the planets around our Sun. These forks are NOT based on a musical scale. They work more on the cosmic multi-dimensions of our chakras, our not noticeable bodies or subtle parts. They also work on pathways as well as other gateways of energy. The planetary cycle of the solar System is used to arrive at accurate formulae on which these tuning forks have been created. This links them to our cosmic multi-dimensional selves. Our this self is eternal, very not noticeable and approachable through layers, ladders, gateways and manifold levels of energy. These Tuning forks prepare pathways to a Cosmic Universal understanding of Life and our Soul's infinite relationship to it. In comparison, It is unlike the Harmonic Spectrum Set, which is tuned to the Pythagorean Scale (also known as the Just Scale) and is more in touch with the physical plane of existence and works at a more physical level. The physical plane is more concentrated, crystallized in definite form, cognitive and revolves around the 5 human senses and various parts of our physical body like the tissues, fluids, bones, organs, etc. A Swiss mathematician and musicologist Hans Cousto had developed them. These 7 Tuning forks are based on: 1st Root/Muladhara (also Earth Day) 194.18 Hz 2nd Sacral/Svadhisthana (also Synodic Moon) 210.42 Hz 3rd Solar Plexus/Manipura (also Sun) 126.22 Hz 4th Heart/Anahata(also Earth Year)(also OM Fork) 136.10 Hz 5th Throat/Vishuddha (also Mercury) 141.27 Hz 6th Third Eye/Ajna (also Venus) 221.23 Hz 7th Crown/Sahasrara(also Platonic Year) 172.06 Hz 1st ROOT/Muladhara/BASE- 194.18 Hz – It is related to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality. This centre is located in the region between the genitals and the anus.The ROOT fork is the same frequency as an Earth Day which is 24 hours. The Chakra color is Orange-Red. It is effective on the pubic bone and coccyx. 2nd SACRAL/Svadisthana – 210.42 Hz – This chakra is considered to correspond to the testes or the ovaries that produce the various sex hormones involved in the reproductive cycle.This tuning fork is the same frequency as the Synodic Moon, which is the time of the full moon. This frequency stimulates sexual energy and supports erotic communication. Also good for woman's cycles and for disturbances of the glandular and lymphathic systems.It is also considered to be related to, more generally, the genitourinary system and the adrenals The Chakra color is Orange. 3rd SOLAR PLEXUS/Manipura – 126.22 Hz – The SOLAR PLEXUS tuning fork is the same frequency as our solar systems central star, the Sun. This fork helps in metabolic and digestive systems. The Chakra color is Green. 4th HEART/Anahata – 136.10 Hz (Cosmic OM) – The HEART tuning fork is tuned to the OM vibration and resonates to the Earth Year or the time it takes the Earth to rotate around the sun, which is one year or 365 days. It helps in relaxation.Effective for immune system and circulation. The Chakra color is Blue-Green. It helps in spirituality and devotion. 5th THROAT/Vishuddha – 141.27 Hz – The THROAT tuning fork is the same frequency as the planet Mercury. It is related to communication and growth through expression. This tuning fork is helpful for throat,for thyroid, a gland that is also in the throat and which produces thyroid hormone, responsible for growth and maturation.. The Chakra color is Blue. 6th 3RD EYEAjna – 221.23 Hz – The 3rd EYE tuning fork is the same frequency as the planet Venus. This fork helps in pineal glads. The pineal gland is a light sensitive gland that produces the hormone melatonin which regulates sleep and awakening.. The Chakra color is bright Yellow-Orange. Use this tuning fork on the 3rd Eye, directly between the eyebrows. 7th CROWN/Sahasrara – 172.06 Hz – The CROWN fork is the same frequency as the Platonic Year, which is 25,920 years. It is generally considered to be the chakra of pure consciousness. Its role may be envisioned somewhat similarly to that of the pituitary gland, which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and also connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus.. The color is Red-Violet/ Purple. It helps in Universal conciousness,meditation and unity.It brings joy and happiness.Use this tuning fork on the crown chakra at the top of the head in alignment with the tops of the ears.

Pro-STP is a formula especially compounded for senior men. Its natural ingredients may support the healthy functioning of their body, e.g. its main component saw palmetto, helps maintain the healthy functioning of the prostate. The prostate is a chestnut-sized gland situated between the bladder neck (urethra) and the rectum. It is found only in men, and it plays an essential role in proper sexual function, In older men, hormonal changes can cause this gland to become enlarged (known as benign prostate hyperplasia or BPH). An enlarged prostate, by pressing against the urethra and the bladder, can result in discomfort, decreased urine flow, more frequent urination, and other health problems. Prostate problems are prevalent enough in older men, that regular prostate medical examinations are recommended for all men from middle age onwards. BPH is usually associated with changes in hormone metabolism that increases the ratio of plasma estrogen to testosterone, and causes the accumulation of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), one of the substances though to be responsible for BPH. Studies have shown that extracts from the fruit of the small palm tree, saw palmetto, may have an inhibitory effect on the conversion of testosterone to DHT, and also inhibit both estrogen and androgen receptors in the cells, without interfering with testosterone. Nettle contains several anti-inflammatory flavanoids, and, as a diuretic, has been shown to be helpful in clearing uric acid from the body. As well, nettle may help support the hormone binding proteins in the blood. Flaxseed is rich in antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids, and has shown anti-inflammatory properties. Bioperin is an extract of black pepper, and studies have indicated it significantly enhances the body’s absorption and utilization of several vitamins, minerals and herbal agents. As an antioxidant, Selenium promotes the protection of cells against certain harmful effects of free radicals.Zinc is a key element in the normal functioning of the reproductive organs. Package: 60 tablets Ingredients: Saw palmetto berry extract (std. 45% EFA & sterols) 300 mg Stinging Nettle Leaf Extract 150 mg Flax seed oil 150 mg Pygeum Africanum Bark Ext.

Symptoms of Reproductive Diseases

Problems with the reproductive system may present as follows. Some of them may overlap with symptoms from other related systems like the urinary and the endocrine systems.

 

  • Urethral discharge
  • Painful urination
  • Increased urinary frequency
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Painful intercourse
  • Genital sore
  • Painful scrotal swelling
  • Pubic and genital itch
  • Genital rash
  • Delayed puberty
  • Infertility

 

Urethral discharge

This is usually only noticed by men and always requires further investigation. There may be associated symptoms of urethral irritation and the underlying disease is likely to be an inflammation of the urethra, which is often infective and sexually transmitted.

 

A pussy discharge suggests gonorrhoea, whereas chlamydial infection is more likely to give a scanty slimy discharge. Sometimes the patient only notices the discharge in the morning, or by staining of his underwear. Prostatic secretions, which are normal, may present as urethral discharge in men who have abstained from sexual intercourse or masturbation.

 

Painful urination

This is called dysuria.  It is a specific form of discomfort arising from the urinary tract in which there is pain immediately before, during or after urination. The urine is often described as ‘burning’ or ‘scalding’, and there is usually associated increased frequency of urination and decreased functional bladder capacity. Infection and cancer of the bladder or urethra are the most important causes.

 

Increased frequency of urination

Increased frequency of micturition results from polyuria, a reduction in effective bladder capacity, or irritation of the bladder or urethra. The commonest cause of polyuria is excessive fluid intake, whereas reduced functional bladder capacity is seen most frequently in patients with prostate enlargement and obstruction of the bladder outlet. Lower urinary tract infection (cystitis) causes bladder irritation and an increase in urinary frequency. Some patients with neurological diseases, also have frequency of micturition.

 

 

Vaginal discharge

An itchy vaginal discharge is usually suggestive of thrush. Smelly discharges are usually due to parasites and bacterial infections or retained foreign bodies such as tampons.

Normal discharge can occur after sexual stimulation or during pregnancy, but is not itchy or offensive. Vaginal discharge may also arise from infections like gonorrhoea, chlamydia or herpes.

 

Painful intercourse

Pain on sexual intercourse is called dyspareunia. In women, pain around the vulva can be due to inflammation. Pain that is deep in the vagina may result from infections in the pelvis (pelvic inflammatory disease), inflammation of the womb and other gynaecological diseases, particularly endometriosis.

 

Genital sores

Painful ulcers are usually due to genital herpes or trauma, whereas a painless ulcer may be due to syphilis. However, syphilitic ulcers can be painful. A genital ulcer lasting for a short while is most likely from syphilis or herpes unless proved otherwise; herpetic ulcer lasting more than 1 month is caused by AIDS.

 

Painful scrotal swelling

An infection of the testis may occur following a sexually transmitted infection. Painful scrotal swelling is also a feature of surgical emergencies such as torsion (twisting) of the testis.

Other causes include trauma to the scrotum and recent vasectomy (cutting of the vas deferens).

Testicular infection in sexually active men below the age of 35 is likely to result from gonorrhoea or chlamydia. In those over the age of 40, it is more likely from bacterial urinary tract infection. Testicular cancer may sometimes present as a painful swelling.

 

Pubic and genital itch

This is usually due to pubic lice, scabies or other inflammatory genital conditions, such as allergic skin disease, but may be psychological. Sexual or household contacts may also complain of itching due to pubic lice or scabies. In pubic lice infestation, you may notice ‘crabs’ and nits on the hair shaft. Itching at night is suggestive of scabies and is likely to be generalized except for the face.

 

Genital rash

An itchy rash on the vulva or tip of the penis is seen in thrush, scabies and inflammatory skin conditions. Non-itchy rash may be seen in syphilis. Drug reactions or cancer of the vulva may present as a genital rash.

 

Delayed puberty

Puberty is considered to be delayed if the physical features of sexual maturation have not started showing up by the age of 14 in boys and 13 in girls.

 

Genetic factors have a major influence in determining the timing of the beginning of puberty. However, because there is also a minimum body weight that is required for normal puberty to start, the onset of puberty can be influenced by other factors including, chronic illness, excessive exercise and starvation.

Psychological stress and damage to the testes or ovaries from infections, trauma or surgery, drugs or irradiation, and tuberculosis can cause delayed puberty. Any other condition that can cause low levels of sex hormones may also be a cause.

 

Infertility

Infertility affects around 1 in 7 couples of reproductive age, often causing substantial psychological distress. In women, infertility may result from absence of ovulation or from abnormalities of the reproductive tract that prevent fertilisation or implantation, most commonly damaged fallopian tubes from previous infection. In men, infertility may result from reduced sperm quality or number. In many couples, more than one factor causing subfertility is present, and in a substantial proportion no cause can be identified.
