Coordination of the hypothalamic-pituitaryovarian axis is via blood-borne signals, and the ovaries synchronize ovulation and the stimulatory and inhibitory feedback loops to the hypothalamus and pituitary. The duration of the menstrual cycle and the timing of ovulation appear to be determined by the ovary itself.

During each menstrual cycle, a cohort of many follicles begin their developmental course; however, typically all but one will undergo atresia via apoptotic programmed cell death. The number of follicles that begin growing in each cohort appears to be dependent on the size of the residual pool of inactive primordial follicles. Follicular development is characterized by an increase in the size of the oocyte, which becomes surrounded by a membrane called the zona pellucida. The granulosa cells surrounding the oocyte also proliferate and transition from squamous to cuboidal shaped.
