The suspensory ligament contains the ovarian vessels. Since that is not an answer choice, it has to be the ureters, as the ureters and the ovarian vessels run posterior to the ovaries (where the ovarian vessels branch off to be contained in the suspensory ligament).





suspensory ligament has ovarian vessels --> ovarian artery + ureter can be damaged in oophorectomy

cardinal ligament has uterine vessels --> uterine artery + ureter can be damaged in hysterectomy
