Meaning of Urethra
In anatomy, the urethra (from Greek οὐρήθρα – ourḗthrā) is a tube that connects the urinary bladder to the urinary meatus for the removal of fluids from the body. In male placental mammals, the urethra travels through the penis, and carries semen as well as urine. In female placental mammals, the urethra is shorter and emerges at the female external urethral orifice above the vaginal opening. - See link

 

Urethra in Spanish is Uretra
La uretra es el conducto por el que pasa la orina en su fase final del proceso urinario desde la vejiga urinaria hasta el exterior del cuerpo durante la micción. La función de la uretra es excretora en ambos sexos y también cumple una función reproductiva en el varon al permitir el paso del semen desde las vesículas seminales que abocan a la próstata hasta el exterior, es decir, este conducto es compartido por el sistema urinario y el reproductor. - See link
