Menopause is a condition that every woman has to accept and go through. It happens when the female body stops producing eggs and can no longer get pregnant.
For some women, it is a welcome change as this means the end of their periods and period related problems, but for others it’s still something quite sad.
Now, researchers from Genesis Athens, a fertility clinic in Greece have developed a blood treatment which is claimed to reverse the effects of menopause, thereby letting women be fertile again.
This unique treatment uses the woman’s own blood to generate Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) which has been known to trigger the growth and regeneration in the human body.
By using PRP, the researchers were able to restart the menstrual cycle in women, who eventually released new eggs years after their periods had naturally stopped.
These eggs were even successfully fertilized, even though we don’t yet know whether they can lead to a natural birth. Nevertheless, this is great news for woman all over the world who want a second chance at being mothers.
The team behind this treatment is now focusing on testing this process further, in order to study any potential side effects, as well as decoding the process itself.
This will help them create proper safety standards and procedural rules for this one of a kind treatment that is yet to be peer reviewed.
This process of vetting the procedure is very important, as the implications of this technology on the way we see the world are quite huge. We will make sure to keep you updated on all the future developments.
