Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX

The electrotherapy if used with over voltage can burn the skin but it have not effect on the ovaries. the ovaries are located up high with the uterus and Fallopian tubes.
The bleed might be due to damaged skin and not due to ovaries.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask

Thanks

I did it all over the pubic area I think thats where the ovaries are or close to it, because thats where I felt a lot of discomfort, I dont have pain but am worried, and I read that I should not do it in the ovaries, but I did not know until now.

Thanks for the reply

The ovaries are located so deep and up that they cannot be reached without surgery. so do not worry. you have not damaged you ovaries. its just your pubic area you have involved and no viscera.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask

Thanks
