Not necessarily: Immature follicles are present in the ovary at the beginning of each cycle and respond to hormonal stimulation as part of the "maturation" process to produce an egg. If you are NOT having menstrual cycles or worse, never had a menstrual cycle at the expected time of puberty, then that is a much more serious problem necessitating GYN MD evaluation.
