Let’s Talk About Eggs!
You are born with all the eggs you will ever have…
As women one of the functions of our reproductive system is to produce eggs. This begins before we are even out of our mother’s womb. At about 5 months while still in our mothers we have about 6-8 million eggs in our ovaries. No new eggs will ever be made after this. Eggs die constantly approximately 10,000 die each month. At birth we have approximately 1-2 million.
At puberty a girl is left with approximately 300,000-400,000 eggs.
Let’s do everything we can to keep these eggs safe!
