Women lose 700-1000 eggs every month? How many eggs does a female produce in a lifetime?

Came across this infographic that states that a woman loses between 700 to 1000 eggs every month, and that got me wondering.

So, how many eggs does a woman produce in a lifetime?

According this website below, every woman is born with about 1 million eggs.
However only about 300,000 remain by puberty, and only 300 - 400 of them ever ovulate.

WebMD says that the majority of eggs within a woman’s ovaries steadily die on their own. This deterioration is unaffected by external factors, so a woman's egg supply continues to decrease whether or not she has a regular menstrual cycle. Even when a woman is pregnant or on birth control, her number of viable eggs decreases constantly. Once a woman reaches menopause, her eggs are completely depleted.

So, I decided to do the Math to find out how many years (post puberty) that a woman has before hitting menopause.

Assuming 300,000 eggs at puberty, and assuming losing 1000 every month, it means that it would take 300 months to deplete the whole eggs.

If 300 is divided by 12 (1 year) it would take 25 years to deplete the eggs.

Which explains the conventional belief that once a girl sees her first menses , her countdown to menopause begins.
The wisdom (or generally accepted belief) is that the earlier a girl sees her menses, the earlier she would also see her menopause. Which explains why some women see their menopause at 40 while others see theirs as late as 50!

In that area, nature cheats no woman really.
