Antral follicle count (AFC)

Antral follicle count (AFC)

A count of the number of small follicles in a woman’s ovaries, seen via ultrasound early on in her cycle. Used to measure ovarian reserve, you’ll probably have a lot of these if you’ve been visiting a reproductive endocrinologist, and you’ll definitely have a lot of these if you’re doing IVF to monitor how you’re responding to ovary-stimulating medication.
