FSH

on May 15, 2016

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) as its name suggests, stimulates the development and maturation of follicles in the ovaries. One of these follicles will become dominant and contains the egg that will be released at ovulation. The developing follicles begin to produce estrogen.

By about the seventh day of your cycle on average (but this can vary widely) the dominant ovarian follicle takes over. The eggs within the other follicles lose their nourishment and die as do the follicular cells. The dominant follicle will release an egg at ovulation.
