Background: Fertility specialists assess ovarian responses prior to estimating the prognosis for women who are suffering from anovulation. To diagnose the inconsistencies between chronological and biological age of ovaries and predict ovarian response, transvaginal sonography (TVS) ovarian act as an operant method. The aim of the current study was to assess the correlation between the number of antral follicles in both ovaries and the age of women in predicting the ovarian response in intrauterine insemination (IUI). 

Methods: The research design of the present study was a cross-sectional. A total of 171 individuals, who were non-smoker patients and had already undergone a standard regimen of ovarian stimulation for IUI, were selected as participants of this study from the Infertility and Reproductive Health Research Center in Babol (Iran). On the third day of the cycle, TVS was conducted to measure the mean of every ovary and also to count the number of antral follicles on the both ovaries. 
Results: The mean age of our patients was 27.7. The increased aged of women is significantly associated with lower total number of antral follicles. (P = 0.001). The mean ovarian diameter was significantly correlated with high number of antral follicles (p = 0.0001). 
Conclusion: The findings of the present study indicated that the age of women and the ovarian diameter are leading factors to help determine ovarian response as well as basal antral follicle counts.
