What does Left ovarian follicle mean?

Thanks for posting your query.
Both of our ovaries- left and right release an egg or ovum every month. This ovum develops inside a follicle in the ovary which ruptures around 14th day of the cycle to release an ovum. The released ovum is then fertilised with a sperm which results in pregnancy.
The formation of the follicle in the left ovary is referred to as left ovarian follicle. This is a normal physiological process and in every cycle, these follicles are formed and then regress with the hormonal changes in the body.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
