Ovarian reserve

« Back to Glossary Index

The amount of oocytes in the ovary generated during the creation of the ovary. This corresponds to 400,000 follicles at puberty and less than 1000 at the menopause. This decrease is the cause of the decrease in fertility with age. This reserve is measured by the AMH dosage and antral follicle count.
