Physiology of human reproduction

Human reproduction is one of the most interesting and fascinating phenomena. Conception and pregnancy are a very complex system in which the body and soul function in harmony with each other.

In order to make reproduction possible, male and female processes must be coordinated and maintained. Hormones play a primary role in the coordination of this process. One can compare hormones with a postman who delivers messages to various addresses.

The hormone "senders" are the glands located all around the body. They use hormones to obtain the reactions required of the recipient organs.
