The Prostate Gland secretes an alkaline fluid that helps the sperm live longer in the relatively acidic environment in the vagina. This helps neutralize the environment and allow the sperm to function and maximum capacity.
A pH of 10 is an alkaline pH. Pathogens prefer an alkaline environment. When the pH becomes alkaline enough to kill pathogens, it will damage your skin.
The seminal vesicle provides nutrients and energy for the sperm as well as providing compounds that make sperm alkaline, which helps the sperm survive the highly acidic environment of the vagina. The prostate makes semen even more alkaline
the sperm uses the head to swim.
Acid kills sperm and the vaginal has a low pH level (acidic) this is why the sperm are suspended in seminal fluid (alkaline) to help nourish and protect the sperm form the acidic environment of the vagina.
It would depend on how alkaline the lake was. The sea is slightly alkaline and you can swim in that. However, I wouldn't advise that you go and swim in a lake with a pH of 14! I think this question would do better if it was rephrased.
if it is not in alkaline medium d sperm would die and cannot give fertility
What are the chances of pregnancy when sperm do not swim properly?"
No, sperm can only swim inside the vagina.
No it is not bad, Healthy cells are alkaline you know.
The vagina is acidic, sperm are alkaline.
An alkaline environment is required in the duodenum to activate intestinal and pancreatic enzymes
The semen helps it to swim
Basically, the alkaline pH of the seminal fluid is to protect the sperm. This is necessary for a couple of reasons: - The vagina is slightly acidic, while the sperm are made to be in an alkaline environment. If they had no alkaline protection from the semen itself, they'd die when they hit the vagina, which kills the entire (evolutionary) point of having sex. - Urine is acidic, and there's often some leftovers from some previous peeing in the urethra. The semen neutralizes the urine, lettin gthe sperm go through without dying.
An alkaline phosphatase is any of a group of phosphatases which are most active in an alkaline environment.
Their sperm are flagellated. The sperm of ferns, like those of mosses, have flagella and must swim through a film of water to fertilize eggs.
on average what distance can sperm swim inside a womans body in an hour?
Sperm has tails and they swim like tadpoles
Sperm learn to swim once it reaches the seminal vesicles. The vesicles provide fluid loaded with fructose that provides motility for the sperm
Yes and no. Ferns need to live in a moist environment in order for the sperm to be able to swim to the egg and fertilize it.
sperm mature and learn to swim in the semifinouris tubules
