Suppose a normal woman has never borne a child. How many mature eggs would she have produced in her lifetime? Your calculation should be based on two clues-

(a) Eggs are produced at the rate of 1 egg every 28 days (one menstrual cycle).

(b) A woman’s total reproductive period is 13-45 years.

Answer :

Total reproductive period = 45 – 13 = 32 years

Total eggs produced = Total reproductive period x Number of eggs produced in one period

=32 x 12

= 384 eggs approximately
