To understand how an antral follicle count [see video] ultrasound can tell you where you are on your biological clock, remember that approximately thirty to thirty-five eggs die every day. That is where the number of one thousand per month comes from. They die only because they have initiated their emergence from the resting pool of eggs and have begun their long, three-month development toward becoming an egg that is capable of ovulation.
Thus, when a woman is only twenty years of age, an average of thirty-seven follicles per day leave the resting stage. When she is thirty-five years of age, an average of ten follicles per day leave the resting stage, and when she is forty-five years of age, an average of two follicles per day leave the resting stage.
The School Pulse Panel is a study collecting information on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic from a national sample of elementary, middle, high, and combined-grade public schools. Some survey questions are asked repeatedly to observe trends over time while others examine unique topics in a single month. Below highlights the most recent data collection, followed by findings for additional topics, and a table outlining topic areas for each month of collection. An excel file with estimates and standard errors is available for download and includes results for all months in a single file. See more information about the reporting groups. 2b1af7f3a8
