Keep Ovaries and Live Longer, hey women!

The ovaries are part of a woman's reproductive system. They are in the pelvis. Each ovary is about the size of an almond. The ovaries make the female hormones - estrogen and progesterone. They also release eggs. An egg travels from an ovary through a fallopian tube to the uterus. When a woman goes through menopause stage , her ovaries stop releasing eggs & make far lower level of hormones.
