There are cur­rently 5 names in this direc­tory begin­ning with the let­ter O.
Oligomen­or­rhoea
Men­stru­a­tion occurs too infre­quent. It is a form of men­strual dis­or­der char­ac­ter­ized by a men­strual cycle that is too long. This is the case when the total cycle is more than 35 days (max­i­mum 90). Due to changes in hor­monal bal­ance, oligomen­or­rhoea occurs mainly after the menar­che or before menopause and is nor­mal dur­ing this period. 

Ovar­ian cyst
A sack-like cav­ity formed in or on the ovaries and filled with fluid, which is usu­ally harm­less The ovar­ian cyst can have a diam­e­ter of a few mil­lime­tres to over 15 cm. 

Ovaries
Part of the pri­mary sex­ual char­ac­ter­is­tics where eggs and sex hor­mone are produced. 

Ovu­la­tion
The moment in which the unfer­tilised egg is ejected from the ovary and then received by the fal­lop­ian tube. In a healthy and nat­ural men­strual cycle, ovu­la­tion takes place peri­od­i­cally and is often in the mid­dle of the cycle. Around ovu­la­tion are the fer­tile days.

Ovu­la­tion bleed­ing
Inter­me­di­ate bleed­ing that can occur at the time of ovu­la­tion (mid­dle of the men­strual cycle).
