How to use "Ovaries" in context?

The Ovaries are two small, egg-shaped organs located in the middle of the female reproductive system. They are responsible for producing eggs, which are fertilized by the male sperm and later developed into embryos. The ovaries are located below the uterus and just in front of the bladder.

The ovaries can vary in size from one individual to another, and can also change in shape over time. They are composed of tissue similar to the tissue in the testes, and are surrounded by the inner layer of the uterus, the endometrium.
