Regarding the timing of the menstrual cycle, the antral follicle count (AFR) is recommended to be done between the second and fourth day of the cycle. It should be noted that day 1 of the menstrual cycle is considered the day on which menses ends.
On the other hand, as for the time in reproductive life, a woman not only can, but should have an AFR at a gynaecological check-up at a young age, even if she is not seeking pregnancy. In this way, the woman will be able to know her ovarian reserve in order to anticipate and avoid possible complications, for example through fertility preservation, if she wishes to become a mother in the future.
