    Sexual reproduction is the process in which a male sperm unites with a female ovum to permit fertilisation. Each fertilised cell contains a set of chromosomes from each parent, therefore both the male and female gametes contribute equally to the process of reproduction. This article provides an overview of the normal anatomy and physiology of the male and female reproductive systems. Common disorders of these systems are also discussed.
