The epididymis is a little known but well-researched part of the male reproductive system. Sperm’s maturation in the epididymis is also a long, complicated process that can be interrupted to render sperm non-functional, and thus create a reversible contraceptive for men.
Within the male reproductive system, the epididymis and the vas deferens make up the duct system of the male reproductive organs. These ducts are connected to the testicles. The epididymis is a set of two coiled tubes (one for each testicle) that connects the testicle directly to the vas deferens. The epididymis has three parts.
