About The  Female Reproductive Organs

The vagina, the uterus, the two fallopian tubes and the two ovaries constitute the internal genital organs of the female body. They are all connected. Women are at  risk when using the powder on their genitals, sanitary pads, diaphragms, and in condoms. Talc particles easily make their way into the vagina and can  travel deeper into the reproductive organs.
What Are The Ovaries?

The ovaries, a pair of tiny glands in the female pelvic cavity. They  produce both the female sex hormones that control reproduction and  fertilization to form embryos.

Each ovary is a small glandular organ about the shape and size of an almond. The ovaries are located on opposite sides of the uterus in the pelvic cavity and are attached to the uterus by the ovarian ligament.

Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer starts  in the ovaries. Ovaries are reproductive glands found only in females (women). The ovaries produce eggs (ova) for reproduction.

 

  • Epithelial tumors begin in  the cells that cover the outer surface of the ovarries. Most ovarian tumors are epithelial cell tumors.
  • Germ cell tumors begin  from the cells that produce the eggs (ova).
  • Stromal tumors begin from structural tissue cells that hold the ovary together and produce the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.
