    Does the structure "in which" here look a bit awkward?

    Plus, is it better to use "women" than "a woman"?



    e still many unknown factors in the prospect, in which women with primary ovarian insufficiency hope to use their own oocytes in conception. Evidence has showed us that a woman with POI can get pregnant by using ethinylestradiol or gonadotropin to release hormone analogues to inhibit high concentration of FSH, then administering low-dose gonadotropin to induce ovulation.

    Both OK but "women" without the article would work too.

    Did you mean both "women" and "a woman" okay?
    Another question remained: Does the structure "in which" here look a bit awkward?

    I think bill's 'both' referred to both your questions.
