Hormones of the Ovaries
The Location and Function of the Ovaries
- The ovaries are oval shaped.
- Each ovary is approximately the size of a large grape.
- The location of each ovary is within opposite ends of a female’s pelvic wall, embedded on either side of the uterus.
- Each ovary is attached to specialised tissue connecting them with the fallopian tube
- The ovaries play a key role in the female reproductive system.
- Ovaries secrete two main hormones which we know as estrogen and progesterone.
- Ovaries produce egg cells that maintain a women’s reproductive system.
- The Ovary is also considered an endocrine gland due to its secretion of hormones.
