The ovaries are two tiny glands found in the female pelvic cavity. They play a very important role in a woman’s reproductive system as they produce sex hormones – estrogens and progesterone and also contain the female gametes that form an embryo once fertilized. These glands are located on either side of the uterus and connected to it by the fallopian tubes. Every month one of the ovaries releases an egg through the fallopian tubes to the uterus to start the menstrual cycle.
Important steps in an Ovarian Cycle
Gonadotropins are hormones that act on the ovaries (or gonads) causing them to produce ova, which results in the Ovarian cycle. There are two main stages during this cycle known as:
During this stage or phase around 20 Graafian follicles within the ovary start to develop under the influence of the FSH hormone produced by the pituitary gland. While these follicles develop they begin to release estrogen into a woman’s blood stream. The estrogen activates the endometrium (mucus glands) in the uterus causing it to expand. This marks the start of the uterine cycle (menstruation cycle).
On the tenth day of the follicle phase, out of all the developing follicles only one will outgrow the rest till it is mature. When it reaches 18-20 mm in size it will rupture to release an ovum on day 14 or 16 of the uterine cycle, resulting in a woman’s ovulation process.
The ovary will experience more changes once the ovum is released. The follicle cells change as fat globules accumulate in them. They grow larger in size and turn yellowish in color. These are luteal cells and the follicle turn into corpus luteum. In case of pregnancy the corpus luteum will continue to grow and support the embryo. If conception does not occur, the corpus luteum will become smaller and slowly degenerate. The endometrium that had been primed hormones slowly peels off the uterine walls causing the start of menstruation and the beginning of another Ovarian cycle.
