Blood Supply and Lymphatics

Blood supply to the ovaries comes from two different sources: ovarian and uterine arteries

The ovarian arteries are the branches of the abdominal aorta that pass to the ovaries through the suspensory ligaments and provide the principal arterial supply to the ovaries and uterine tubes. These arteries anastomose with the second blood source to the ovary, the ovarian branches of the uterine arteries, which arise from the internal iliac arteries. Relatively large vessels arising from this region of anastomosis pass through the mesovarium and enter the hilum of the ovary. These large arteries are called helicine
