Every time you go to this bank and withdraw money, your bank account decreases. Now imagine doing this every single month. Eventually, your money is going to run out! The same theory applies to a woman's "egg bank."
Over time their egg supply decreases. At the time of birth, females have around 1-2 million eggs. Once young girls begin puberty and they reach menarche, age of their first menstrual period, this supply decreases to about 400,000.
Each time females go through a complete menstrual cycle and ovulate; their egg supply decreases even more. The average women will ovulate around 400 times during their reproductive life. Each time a women goes through a full cycle, they are losing several hundred eggs per month.
Now you may be thinking how in the world is this possible to lose all those eggs if I only release 1-2 eggs each time I ovulate? The answer that question in simple terms is yes; unfortunately, this is correct.
Women do only release 1-2 eggs per ovulation, but ovulate follows the rules of survival of the fittest. Only the healthiest of eggs get released from the follicle each month. Several hundred to upwards of a thousand immature eggs will die off due to a process that we call Atresia or natural cell death.
As women, our bodies can do some many amazingly wonderful things! We can grow human life and then, in turn, give birth to (hopefully) a beautiful, healthy baby. Although pregnancy and motherhood may not be for all, our bodies are equipped with the most prestigious organs to make this all happen.
Because of this, over time our female organs begin to age and lead to the oh so wonderful time we call menopause! Menopause can be a real buzz kill and is unfortunately unavoidable but rest assured ladies you are not alone!
There are several lifestyle modifications, medications, vitamins, and supplements that can help ease you into this transition. CBD oil is a great supplement that can help make this time in your life a little more manageable.
