Normal range of sperm count is ______ million/ml
PSA and Profibrinolysin dissolve the _________ to release the sperm to facilitate motility and migration within the female tract.

______: Mediated by efferent sympathetic stimulation. Ejection of sperm and semen to exterior or into the female reproductive tract.
Sperm ______: includes washing away of inhibitory factors and weakening of the sperm head.
_____: An important protein induced in Sertoli cells by FSH. It binds and concentrates Testosterone within Seminiferous tubules.
