Definition

Location
Spermatogenesis occurs inside the Oogenesis occurs inside the
testis in males
ovary in females.
Stages
All the stages of spermatogenesis All the stages of oogenesis,
occur inside the testis.
other than the last stage,
occurs inside the ovary. The
last stage occurs inside the
oviduct.
Releasing
Sperms are released from the Oocytes are released from

later.
Continuity
Spermatogenesis is a continuous Early stages of the oogenesis

period. The rest of the
process occurs after the
puberty. Only one ovum is
produced per month until
menopause.
Spermatogonia/Oogonia
Spermatogonia is developed from Oogonia is developed from
