My understanding of the female reproductive system is that the 
ovaries are enclosed by a transparent vascularized mesovarium.  
This is continuous over the ovaries and onto the oviduct.  The 
mature eggs pass from ovarian follicles into the central lumen of 
the ovary and then into the oviduct to the genital pore.  They 
shouldn't be in the coelomic cavity at any time.
