Structure of a mature human sperm cell

A sperm cell reaches maturity throughout the journey from the testes until it comes out with ejaculate.

This means that, when a sperm goes outside the man's body, it is fully developed: DNA is packaged within the head, mitochondria contained in the mid piece fill it with energy, and the movement of the flagellum (tail) allows it to swim and ascend in the female reproductive tract.
