Anatomical description of the ovaries 

The ovaries are located between the navel and the pubic bone and weigh about 30 g and are connected to the uterus via the uterine tubes or fallopian tubes or oviducts. In human physiology it happens that when the mature egg is expelled from one of the two ovaries and is released into the peritoneal cavity it is pushed by the movements of the cilia that line the walls of the tube and by the contractions that occur in the oviduct. In this way the egg ends up in the uterine cavity . 

The ovaries are the female gonads and both produce female germ cells or oocytes (gametogenic function) and secrete the hormones estrogen and progesterone, as well as a small amount of androgens (endocrine function).
