The urinary system is a part of the body that clears waste from the blood and sends it to the bladder, where it’s stored until and released during urination.
The urinary system includes:
- Kidneys: These bean-shaped organs filter the blood and remove waste products.
- Ureters: Urine travels from each kidney through the ureters to the bladder.
- Bladder: This balloon-shaped organ stores urine until urination. It has muscles that relax and squeeze to expel the urine.
- Urethra: This tube carries urine from the bladder outside the body during urination.
