Is there a connection between the ability to conceive and the number of follicles?

“With an increased number of growing follicles, more oocytes will be released, and there will be a higher probability of releasing a healthy oocyte (even in younger women, 25% of oocytes are abnormal),” says Ralf Zimmermann, MD, medical director of Neway Fertility, one of NYC’s leading fertility centers specializing in customized and affordable natural fertility treatments.

An oocyte is an egg released from the ovary (from inside a follicle).

Dr. Zimmerman continues, “Therefore, the pregnancy rate will be increased, but also the chance of having a multiple pregnancy will be increased.”
