Reproductive health is a broad term and a large umbrella of topics are considered under this category. The reproductive system is a system of organs within an organism which work together for the purpose of reproduction. Many non-living substances such as fluids, hormones, and pheromones are also important accessories to the reproductive system. Unlike most organ systems, the sexes of differentiated species often have significant differences.
These differences allow for a combination of genetic material between two individuals, which allows for the possibility of greater genetic fitness of the offspring. Diseases of the human reproductive system are very common and widespread, particularly communicable sexually transmitted diseases.
These would constitute a number of product categories and sub markets some of which are covered in market research reports. The term includes a variety of topics, such as pregnancy, fertility, menstruation and menopause, contraception, SIDS and HIV. The health and function of male and female reproductive systems would also be considered part of this category.
