'Ovary-arm' transplant a success[edit]

Seperate article?[edit]

Shouldn't Plant Ovaries be a seperate disambiguated article?

roving ovaries[edit]

My name is Brita Segerhammar and I am forty one years old and have not had sex at all yet and been on birth control pills to regulate my period and I am now wondering if since I am on a low -ogestrel 28 tabets does that mean when the wheather changes my period does to as well i just am asking right now because of my age and what i am taking thanks. Question: Can a woman's ovaries move away from the fallopian tubes?

yes! the fallopian tubes move all over the ovary, they need to move freely as to move to different ovulation sites. They are not attached to the ovary at all but it is thought that they are attracted to the ovulation site (and thus egg) via chemical chemical signals. Sometimes this does not work and an egg will not go into the fallopian tube but instead "fall" into the body cavity.

Category:Human reproduction[edit]

I propose removing this article from Category:Human reproduction. I have proposed narrowing the scope of that category at Category talk:Human reproduction. Please comment on the category talk page. Lyrl Talk C 15:09, 17 March 2007 (UTC)


I'm an Australian med student. Was under the impression that the *G-Spot* was a load of utter rubbish. Looking for articles to justify its inclusion in the picture of the female reproductive system. Can't find any. Are there any references that you have? Oh, and I accept the existance of the spot (I've seen the articles about that) I mean about the specific location of the spot. I also have concerns about the relevance of it in an article about the ovaries, shouldn't the main pic be something maybe from a human anatomy text of the actual ovaries (maybe a cross section of?). Anyhow, Would be interested to find out about G-Spot either way. Please reply if anyone has any ideas.

retracting ovary[edit]

I had an pelvic obstetrical ultrasonography done this morning, and she told me my right ovary has retracted.. moved away to the far side. but it's nothing to worry about.. so she called in a senior person, and they both whisped and ended up taking more pictures.. I do have a fibroid tumor as well, but it's on the left side. Does any one know what they meant?

 thank you, Aug. 6th - 2008  Goldenkariboo (talk) 20:28, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I had a scan 4 weeks ago and was told they could not find my right ovary. She proceeded to do an internal scan and still couldn't find it? Why would this be? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Citreonc5 (talkcontribs) 14:47, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

How many eggs?[edit]

Can someone add how many eggs is in a typical ovary? I read that a female is born with all the eggs she will produce already in the ovary, but I could not find a number. Thanks ```` —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:20, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

A regular ovary should contain about 2 million eggs on average --Trulystand700 (talk) 03:10, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

One ovary[edit]

What cahnge may occur if only one of the ovaries are working properly ?? Or what might happen if there is only one ovary ?? Would it affect menstruation & ovulation ?? Or would the continue normally ?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Oberoy248 (talkcontribs) 17:13, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


Being the author of an endocrinology textbook -- so far in German -- I think this page is not adequate dealing with the physiology and the anatomy of the ovaries. There isn't any good image (the one on the corpus luteum page is much better than the one about the entire female genitals where the ovaries are not even nicely visible. What is completely lacking is any mentioning of the function of the ovaries. The sentences about the hormones produced are so trivial they are almost wrong. At least they are incomplete: ovaries produce testosteron! and much more than estradiol! This article needs polishing!--B.Kleine (talk) 11:03, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Article didn't mention testosterone production from the ovaries[edit]

I added four reference/citation notes aside the added testosterone link in the hormone section. The article failed to mention that females produce part of their testosterone from their ovaries and adrenal gland.

The sources are all added. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:33, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Ovary - Only intraperitoneal organ WTF[edit]

In the Ligaments section, it is stated that the ovaries are the only intraperitoneal organs in the human body. That is complete nonsense. Stomach, liver, jejunum, ileum, colon etc. are all intraperitoneal organs. The article by itself is okay, I guess, but this is utter nonsense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:26, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
