A 26-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

i have been told i have immature follicles, i would like to know if this means i will never produce a viable egg for ovulation.

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.

Not ovulating: If the largest follicle is only 4mm on CD 12, you are,probably not ovulating this month. You need to discuss this with your fertility MD.

No: If you have confirmed ovulation than the follicle is most likely a cyst. It is not another egg.
