Are you pregnant?
And did they do a pelvic exam too?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

This is a friend of mine - no she is not pregnant and yes she did have a pelvic exam. She just never asked the doctor what he meant by full ovaries. I never heard of it and am assuming it might have something to do with cyst?

Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 7 years ago.
thank you for the follow ups. Usually when an ob/gyn such as much self who uses the term Full, or Fullness - this usually means that the is small adhesions or mass in the pelvis such as an enlarge ovary or an enlarged uterus. So, this should be follow up with a pelvic ultrasound to either confirm the exam or to see if there really is anything going on. Sometimes the ob/gyn is wrong and just wants to confirm if anything is actually there or NOT. I would recommend seeing what the ultrasound actually says and what the results are. I hope this helps, Please click on ACCEPT, thank you for your question. If you have further questions. please ask.
