Definition - What does Seminal Vesicles mean?

Seminal vesicles are a component of the male reproductive system that contributes to the production of semen.

Seminal vesicles are also referred to collectively as the seminal gland.

Kinkly explains Seminal Vesicles

Seminal vesicles are a pair of glands that are located behind the bladder, above the prostate gland, and in front of the rectum. These glands hold one of the four fluids that make up seminal fluid. The seminal vesicles work with the epididymis, prostate gland and vas deferens to make up the content of semen. The fluid in the seminal vesicles has a high sugar content which serves to feed the sperm on their journey into the vagina, in reproduction. This fluid also contributes to the sticky properties of semen, a consistency which helps it stick inside the vagina.
