Do men and women have the same number of genes?

As far as I know, humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, each one which contains a particular amount of genes. But in the "last" pair, men have a XY pair chromosome, and women have a XX pair chromosome. Does the missing "leg" of the XY pair make men to have fewer genes than women, and if so, how many genes do each sex have?
