Introduction Folliculogenesis is the production of follicles in the ovaries of female reproductive system. Every month females go through their ovarian cycle, in which the ovaries produce follicles that help to carry out the egg cell necessary for reproduction. This egg cell is carried out to be fertilized by a sperm cell received from males during sexual intercourse. If the egg cell is not fertilized by the sperm cell, then the female ends up going through the menstrual cycle in which the egg is expelled and the monthly bleeding begins and persists its monthly course. The topic of folliculogenesis may be overlooked, but when researching about the topic it is seen how important this cycle is in reproduction. This cycle lays out the platform for reproduction every month, without this cycle the proper hormones would not be able to be produced in the system. Stages of Folliculogenesis The ovarian cycle in a normal female occurs every month that lasts for a total of 28 days. The first stage of folliculogenesis is the primordial follicles, this is when the ovaries produce the first follicles at day zero. Each follicle consists of an egg cell with granulosa cells around it. The job of the granulosa cells is to nourish the egg cell and help it travel through the ovary until fertilization. In the next stage of folliculogenesis the primordial follicles
