What Are the Side Effects of Follicles in Ovaries?

Q:
What are the side effects of follicles in ovaries?

A:
Too many follicles in ovaries may lead to infertility and other ovarian diseases. According to the study, a female is born with around 150,000 to 500,000 follicles in her ovaries. By the time she is sexually mature, the number will reduce to 34,000.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the main cause of too many follicles in ovaries. It is a kind of hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. When you get polycystic ovary syndrome, your ovaries may produce numerous small collections of fluid, and the fluid will become follicles in your ovaries.

Too many follicles will prevent the production of eggs in your ovaries, so it’s difficult for you to be pregnant. Besides, too many follicles in ovaries may lead to other problems:

  • Irregular periods.
  • Excess androgen.
  • Miscarriage or premature birth.
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding.
  • Cancer of the uterine lining.
  • Polycystic ovaries.
