The urinary system or renal system is the organ system that produces, stores, and eliminates urine. In humans it includes two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder and the urethra. The female and male urinary system are very similar, differing only in the length of the urethra. Urine is formed in the kidneys through a filtration of blood. The urine is then passed through the ureters to the bladder, where it is stored. During urination the urine is passed from the bladder through the urethra to the outside of the body. About 1-2 litres of urine are produced every day in a healthy human, although this amount may vary according to circumstances such as fluid intake.
