This situation may differ from that in rodents, who do not undergo critical decreases in follicular reserve. Recent data in the mouse identifying germline stem cells in adult animals [4] has not been reproduced in women. Ovarian reserve is the major predictor of the age at which natural menopause will occur. Toxic exposures to agents that destroy ovarian follicles such as smoking [1], ionizing radiation, medically treated depression [5], low socioeconomic status [6] and possibly galactose consumption [7] have all been shown to reduce the reproductive life span of women.

There is evidence that folliculogenesis is accelerated [27], however, and that follicle growth dynamics are altered. For example, studies examining follicle growth directly and comparing findings in perimenopausal women to mid-reproductive aged women have observed that follicles begin to grow earlier, but grow at a slower pace and ovulate at a smaller size [28]. There is a strong and consistent association between the monotropic FSH rise that is the hallmark of the perimenopause and decreased inhibin B concentrations, thought to reflect the diminished number of competent primordial follicles available for recruitment in older reproductive-age women [19, 29–33].
