A sex organ or reproductive organ is any part of an animal's body that is involved in sexual reproduction. The reproductive organs together constitute the reproductive system. The testis in the male, and the ovary in the female, are called the primary sex organs. Mosses , ferns , and some similar plants have gametangia for reproductive organs, which are part of the gametophyte. The cones and pollen are not themselves sexual organs. The primary sex organs are the gonads , a pair of sex organs, which diverge into testes following male development or into ovaries following female development.
Ambiguous (Uncertain) Genitalia
Disorders of Sex Development
When a child's gender is not clear at birth, the child has atypical genitalia ambiguous genitalia. This means that the genitals don't seem to be clearly male or female. You have 46 chromosomes in each cell of your body. These are grouped into 23 pairs. The 23rd pair determines your gender. Females have two X chromosomes, and males have one X and one Y chromosome.
Every minute of every day, a baby is born. Most babies are easily seen to be a girl or a boy. Imagine how confusing it must be when we don't know the sex of a newborn? This is rare, and it can be very upsetting for parents.
Ambiguous genitalia is a rare condition in which an infant's external genitals don't appear to be clearly either male or female. In a baby with ambiguous genitalia, the genitals may be incompletely developed or the baby may have characteristics of both sexes. The external sex organs may not match the internal sex organs or genetic sex. Ambiguous genitalia isn't a disease, it's a disorder of sex development. Usually, ambiguous genitalia is obvious at or shortly after birth, and it can be very distressing for families.
