is suspensory ligament the female equivalent of spermatic cord because they both contain gonadal vessels?

I don't think they are the same thing.

The suspensory ligament is a support structure for the ovaries which happens to carry the ovarian vessels. Simlarly the cardinal ligament is a support structure for the uterus which happens to carry the uterine vessels.

Although if you want to correlate anything to the spermatic cord then it should be the round ligament. In males the spermatic cord exits an inguinal hernia and in females the round ligament exits an inguinal hernia.

i think the round ligament is equivalent to gubernaculum in male.
Its attached from testes to scrotum( so it passed the inguinal canal in the development.
in female the gubernaculum (round ligament) is attatched from ovary to labia(male equivalent to scrotum)
