Study Notes

Female Germ Cells

  • Around 1-2 million female germ cells are present in the ovary at birth.
  • During childhood, most oocytes undergo atresia, a process of degeneration and resorption.
  • At puberty, the approximate total number of female germ cells in the ovary is around 300,000-400,000.

Spermatogenesis

  • The process of spermatogenesis and spermiogenesis takes around 64-74 days.

Prenatal Development

  • In the fifth month of prenatal development, the total number of female germ cells in the ovary is around 2 million.

Test your knowledge of spermiogenesis and oogenesis with this quiz. Choose the three correct statements about the development of female germ cells and oocytes. Topics include prenatal development, total number of germ cells, and the fate of oocytes during childhood.
