Ovarian Disorders

The ovaries are a pair of organs that women have. They are located in the pelvis, one on each side of the uterus. Each ovary is about the size and shape of an almond.

The ovaries produce a woman's eggs. If an egg is fertilized by a sperm, a pregnancy can result. Ovaries also make the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. When a woman goes through menopause, her ovaries stop releasing eggs and make far lower levels of hormones.

Problems with the ovaries include

  • Ovarian cancer
  • Ovarian cysts and polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Ovarian torsion, a twisting of the ovary

  • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
  • Ovarian overproduction of androgens

Uterine Diseases

The uterus, or womb, is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. The first sign of a problem with the uterus may be bleeding between periods or after sex. Causes can include hormones, thyroid problems, fibroids, polyps, cancer, infection, or pregnancy.

Treatment depends on the cause. Sometimes birth control pills treat hormonal imbalances. If a thyroid problem is the cause, treating it may also stop the bleeding. If you have cancer or hyperplasia, an overgrowth of normal cells in the uterus, you may need surgery.

With two other uterine problems, tissue that normally lines the uterus grows where it is not supposed to. In endometriosis, it grows outside the uterus. In adenomyosis, it grows in the uterus's outside walls. Pain medicine may help. Other treatments include hormones and surgery.

  • Adenomyosis
  • Asherman syndrome
  • D and C
  • Endometrial ablation
  • Endometrial polyps
  • Endometritis
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Retroversion of the uterus
