Most of them have -ová.
Kováč – Kováčová
Ľupták – Ľuptáková
Výboh – Výbohová

When is surname ended with -a or -o, first you remove it and only then add -ová.
Konôpka – Konôpková
Kňažko – Kňažková

When it's ended with -ec, remove "e", but "c" not.
Moravec – Moravcová
Nemec – Nemcová

When is surname adjective = ended with -y or -ý, you just replace it with -a/-á.
Čierny – Čierna
Šťastný – Šťastná

But when surname isn't adjective and it's still ended with -y, you just add usual -ová. (most of surnames like this are Hungarian)
Héderváry – Héderváryová
Nádašdy – Nádašdyová

Suffix -ová is required for all Slovak women, but when they aren't Slovak by nationality, or marry non-Slovak husband, it's not required to use it.

There's also -ská suffix in Slovak surnames.  E.g. Lánsky – her wife is Lánska.

True, for example Magyars in Slovakia don't distinguish between male and female surnames. Magyar women in Slovakia are allowed to use their surnames in Magyar form – e.g. Aniko Kiss, although they even change it – the first is surname and then name, Kiss Aniko.

In Slovakia a family looks like this: Father is e.g. Peter Kováč. His wife is Anna Kováčová (her maiden name+surname was Anna Kráľová, but she completely took over her husband's surname). Their children are Alexander Kováč and Alexandra Kováčová – they took over their father's surname. Simple.
