Ovaries

Ovaries

The female reproductive organs, attached to the ends of fallopian tubes on both sides of the pelvis. Ovaries release eggs (or they’re supposed to, anyway) and sex hormones into the bloodstream during every menstrual cycle. These guys are small—about the size of almonds—but if you’re doing IVF, they’ll be stimulated to hopefully produce many eggs, and will swell to larger than this.
