Hello and welcome to HCM,

The vaginal ultrasound describes both the ovaries.
One of the ovaries undergo a cyclic change under the influenze of hormones.

During the cycle, a number of follicles develop in the ovary. One of the follicles enlarges and ruptures to release an ovum or egg.
After release of the egg/ ovum, the follicle shrivells up and this process is called involution.

So, there is nothing abnormal. This signifies that the ovaries are functioning properly.

I hope my answer is of help to you.
Kindly post your feed back before closing the query.
Thanks and take care.
