[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]I have recently had a transvaginal ultrasound in which my ovaries were measured. Where the normal ovarian volume is 6 mL for women my age (35), my volume is only [B]0.6mL[/B]. That makes them the size of either an 8 year old girl or an 80 year old woman.

For background: I have two children (18 & 11), I have been on BC pills since I was 15-ish (except very short periods of time that resulted in my 2 pregnancies), I started my period between 14 & 15, I have had bleeding between periods for about 10 years, and 2 weeks ago I went off BC because I had bled for a month straight.

I guess my question is, does the extremely small volume of my ovaries indicate new-found infertility? I read that BC will make a woman's ovaries shrink but by how much? and for how long? :confused: [/FONT]
Your ovaries shrink to some extent when they are suppressed (like BC pills or something). I'm not sure if they shrink that much but it is possible. Did you ask the DR or ultrasound tech?
