Each month 15-20 follicles begin to grow. Each follicle contains a primary oocyte (2n, 4C) that is arrested at prophase I of meiosis. Immediately prior to ovulation, there is a LH surge, one follicle has an oocyte that completes its first meiotic division (reductional), and this oocyte progresses to metaphase II, where it arrests as a secondary oocyte (1n, 2C). This secondary oocyte is then ovulated. If fertilization occurs, meiosis is completed (1n, 1C). Summary of monthly events within the ovary

Atresia is the degeneration (apoptotic cell death) of any size oocyte or follicle and can occur anytime. 20 weeks gestation: 20 million germ cells Birth: ~ 400,000 follicles (with primary oocytes) Puberty: 10,000 follicles (with primary oocytes) Oocyte nucleus FC Atresia Only 400-500 oocytes ever ovulated Each month 15-20 follicles begin to grow (FSH- dependent process) and all follicles undergo atresia except 1, which typically ovulates one secondary oocyte.
