What it Does:

The reproductive system, which is actually part of the endocrine system, is a collection of internal and external organs that work together for the purpose of producing offspring.

In women, the ovaries produce and release progesterone and oestrogen, promote the healthy development of female sex characteristics during puberty and ensure fertility. Oestrogen also prevents abnormal blood clotting and keeps bones strong.

In men, the testes produce testosterone which encourages sperm production and leads to secondary sexual characteristics.
