These then develop into spermatozoa. So each primary spermatocyte produces four haploid sperm. The egg, or ovum, however, is much larger than the sperm and needs to retain cytoplasmic organelles such as mitochondria. In order to achieve this, the primary oocyte does not divide equally but produces one secondary oocyte and a small polar body which contains one of the haploid genomes. At meiosis II the same occurs; the secondary oocyte divides to form an ovum or egg cell and another polar body. So only a single ovum results from each female primary oocyte and all of the available cytoplasm and cytoplasmic bodies are concentrated into this single large cell.
