  • Sperm are produced daily throughout a lifetime but human eggs are finite and found in two ovaries near about about 1-2 million immature eggs, or follicles.
  • Over a lifetime, the vast majority of follicles will die through a process known as atresia. Atresia begins at birth and continues throughout the course of the reproductive life.
  • When puberty is reached and menstruation begins, only about 400,000 follicles remain. With each menstrual cycle, a thousand follicles are lost and only one follicle will actually mature into an ovum (egg), which is released into the fallopian tube, called as ovulation.
  • That means that of the one to two million follicles, only approximate 400 will ever mature.(12 * average reproductive years)
