Does a woman have a prostate? What about a woman's prostate
Sihaiwang: prostate is a part of the male reproductive system. When it comes to prostate and other diseases, it usually refers to men. Do women have prostate? What is the function of women's prostate? Let's take a look at the things about women's prostate!
The prostate is the accessory gonad of the male reproductive system. Although there is no 'specific' prostate in women, there are prostate like tissues. There are some glandular tissues around the bladder outlet of women, whose structure is similar to that of men's prostate. These glandular tissues come from the same embryonic tissue as men's prostate during the embryonic period, and the composition of secretion is the same as that of men's prostate fluid.
Female prostate like tissue is related to the formation of female sexual sensitive area (g area), which was discovered by German physician grafeaburg in 1944, so it is named after this area. Area G is located in the middle of the anterior wall of the vagina and consists of the female prostate duct and its surrounding tissues. In 1950, he once again proposed that there was an erectile tissue similar to the penile cavernous body in this area, which would swell after sexual stimulation, obviously protrude to the vagina, and when reaching orgasm, the ejaculation of the urethra would appear, similar to the ejaculation of men. Later, it was confirmed that the ejaculation fluid came from the anterior gland of women, which contains fructose and PSA, different from urine, also known as vaginal ejaculation, also known as "tidal blowing" in the folk 。
What's the difference between a woman's prostate and a man's prostate
1. Women's prostate and men's prostate are homologous. Due to different hormone levels in men and women, they develop into different forms. Women's prostate fails to fully develop because they are not stimulated by enough male hormones. Therefore, women's prostate is much smaller and thinner than men's prostate.
2. The male reproductive tract and urethra are the same channel, and the prostatic fluid of male becomes a part of semen, which has an impact on fertility, while the prostate of female has no significant impact on fertility.
3. Women's prostate is generally not affected by endocrine disorders like men's prostate. Men may cause prostatic hyperplasia in the middle and old age, but women generally do not, but some cases may also have prostatic hyperplasia, resulting in dysuria.
