Introduction to human reproduction
Almost every growing person has wondered how babies come about.
If you are learning with us today, you are probably a big kid, and hopefully, you shall understand this bundle of excitement, and you shall learn to be more responsible in your male-female interactions.
Reproduction generally means the action or process of making a copy of something. Human reproduction specifically is a natural instance of humans making new humans (offspring) or giving birth to new humans (babies).
Reproduction is necessary for the continuity of humans. Without it, humans will no longer exist as there will be no replacement when we grow very old and die.
There are two types of reproduction in living things: Sexual Reproduction (SR) and Asexual Reproduction (AR).
SR involves two individuals of the same species, usually a male and female. AR can occur without the involvement of another, and this is usually found in single-cell organisms and some plants.
Human reproduction involves a male and a female, and traditionally, the interaction of both male and female organs starts the process. This interaction involves the use of the male and female organs.
As children grow up to become adults, their brains work with their reproductive organs to get them ready to reproduce. This reproductive development process takes time, and it is called puberty. To understand this lesson, make sure to read about these: (Puberty For Boys, Puberty for Girls and Menstruation)
Let us start by looking at the female reproductive organ.
