Difference in between Sperm and Semen
Sperm and SemenPondering over sperm and semen and wondering how they differ? Well, semen and sperm are like squares and rectangles. Sperm is a part of semen but semen isn’t a part of sperm. Sperm cells are male gametes. The function of these cells is to find a female gamete with which they fertilize. In this process, sperm enters the vagina by being expelled through the penis. This expulsion is known as ejaculation. When this occurs, the sperm arrives within a fluid created by the accessory male sex organs. This mixture of sperm and fluid is called semen. Semen is also known as seminal fluid containing secretions from seminal vesicles, prostate gland, testicles, epididymis, bulbourethral and urethral glands. Semen also contains citric acid, free amino acids, fructose, enzymes, calcium, phosphorylcholine, prostaglandin, potassium, and zinc.
