Recorrido del semen

Son los testículos el sitio del escroto donde se produce el semen. El epidídimo es una estructura enrollada que corona los testículos y recibe espermatozoides inmaduros de los testículos y los almacena por varios días. Cuando se produce la eyaculación, el semen es expulsado desde una extremidad del epidídimo hacia el conducto deferente. Posteriormente, el semen se desplaza a través del conducto deferente hacia el cordón espermático en la cavidad pélvica más allá del uréter y detrás de la vejiga. Allí, el vaso deferente se unen con la vesícula seminal para formar el conducto eyaculatorio, el cual atraviesa la próstata y se vacía en la uretra. Cuando se produce la eyaculación, los movimientos musculares rítmicos impulsan el esperma hacia adelante.
