In brief: Q for REI

Imaging does not tell us gynecologists everything we need to know.
I will refer it to some of our leading fertility subspecialists on healthtap. Thanks for asking.

In brief: Enlarged ovary

Normal ovaries vary in size from one woman to the next; cycling women the ovarian size changes at different points in the cycle, and most women the right and left ovaries are a little different.
Were you told what size(s) the 'enlarged' ovaries were? Generally anything less than 5 maybe 6 cm is likely normal.
