'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.

Hi, I was trained as a medical laboratory technichian. In regards to g-spots and their location you must first asses the nature of developing nerve clusters. If a female not of full adult growth, generally complete in the midtwenties(contrary to common report on the Internet, but through observation of human growth through peers and self over the course of 30 years), has sexual intercourse or sexual trauma before these nerve clusters are fully grown they will become malformed, move, or have little function( sensitivity). This also applies to the loss of sensitivity nerve clusters of the clitorous being damaged through teenage masterbation or sexual trama as a child. If you look into what is put on the Internet to teach upcoming women about their bodies and sexuality you will find that they have been teaching them that orgasm for some is merely a psychological release (emotional response and psychological profit) as opposed to a physical one. They are taught "it hurts at first" or "it gets better eventually". They are actually damaging their organ and nerve tissues. In my personal surveys of women I have found that internal stimulation of the vagina is not reported to be pleasurable until the mid to late twenties. Growth hormones in certain foods also cause a growth of certain nerves before their natural growth and the correlating development of the pleasure center of the brain which would cause neural misplacement or nural entanglement, terms I have coined in relation to thinking on the consequences of our societies use of growth hormones on our nutritional supplies. Ofcourse nothing about such things is discussed both due to the corporate nature of food supplies and the traditional lack of concern for females issues.

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)

I went into surgery with the understanding that both ovaries and the cist on my right ovary would be removed. The doctor told me in recovery that surgery went fine that I needed to start on hormone shots because I was in menopause. For three months I took hormone shots. I was having really bad pain in my right side. I told the doctor he said that I shouldn't be hurting and basically that I just wanted pain medicine. I went to the ER they did a CT scan found a mass on my right side were my ovaries were. I spent two days in the ICU. After being discharged from hospital I went to the doctors office he did an exam and scheduled exploratory surgery to remove the mass. I went to another doctor for a second opinion he did a sonogram and blood work. I had a fully functioning ovary. So I had to have surgery again to remove the right ovary. My question is, how could the first doctor miss taking the ovary out? The paper work from the first surgery said he took both out. (talk) 21:10, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Query moved from article space[edit]

I have moved the following from the main article. Keith D (talk) 12:42, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

==Ovarian aging==

I would like to rebuke the information in the first paragraph of this section, the mathematics behind the number of oocytes lends to all references on the number of said cells to be incorrect, there cannot be a million oocytes at birth. Using math, if a primary follicle is 25μm in diameter then that would make the ovaries combined size 25 meters large. (2.5x10^7μm ÷ 1,000)⇒25,000mm; (25,000mm ÷ 1,000) ⇒ 25m. In order for there to be one million oocytes in an adult ovary they would have to be 25 nanometers in size, the diameter of a microtubule. Wikipedia's page on folliclegenesis references the size of a primordial follicle being even larger at 30-50μm (measured in partial millimeters), which would yield a combined ovary diameter of 30-50 meters in diameter. A micrometer is one millionth of a meter or one thousandth of a millimeter which is one thousandth of a meter. A meter is 3.28084 feet. This count would require the ovaries to be a combine into a size of 90 to 150 ft in diameter, the average adult ovary is reported to be 5cm.
