    Abstract

    Reproduction is a device that is evolved for the survival of diverge species of organism by producing continues streams of new generation. This becomes imperative in order to escape extinction of the species since, no organism is immortal. Reproduction in mammals requires the existence of two separate sexes; male and female, each sex produces specialized sex cells known as the gametes in their primary sex organs, the gonads. Testes are the male gonad and the spermatozoon form the mature male gamete, while ovary is the female gonad and the mature female gamete are called the ova. The process involved in the union of a spermatozoon with an ovum is fertilization which gives rise to a new individual. This process in human being has raised concern over the population bloom on one hand and infertility on the other hand. Infertility is not a curse as many societies still considers, but rather, it is a biological disorder and basic research is most important to address both the above concern.
