Doctors have made a true medical breakthrough that could transform the lives of millions of women.
A revolutionary procedure that takes only 30 minutes is designed to “trick” the biological clocks of women and make them think they’re much younger than they are, and it could delay the menopause for up to 20 years, as reported by The Sunday Times.
The procedure is the first of its kind in the world, and it involves removing a piece from an ovary and freezing it at -150C.
The tissue is then held in an ice bank until the woman reaches the menopause, and it’s then thawed and transplanted into them. It then “kickstarts” the natural hormones, and it essentially delays the menopause.
The delay will be welcomed by millions of women who experience serious health problems due to menopause, such as osteoporosis and heart problems.
The procedure will also help millions of women who hope to reduce the draining emotional and physical symptoms of menopause, such as night sweats, hot flushes, memory problems, mood swings, anxiety, etc.
Nine women aged between 22 and 36 have already had the procedure, and one of the patients (34) said that she never felt any pain and the procedure is very straightforward.
Dixie-Louise Dexter, who also underwent the procedure, said that being able to delay the menopause has been life-changing.
The procedure is on offer at a company based in Birmingham, U.K., called ProFaM, and it’s being co-funded by four experts in reproductive medicine.
Professor Simon Fishel, chief executive and co-founder of the company, also an IVG pioneer, said that women are now living longer than at any time in human history, and it’s quite likely that many women will be in the menopause for longer than their fertile period.
So, they’re empowering women to take control of their own health by naturally delaying their menopause.
The procedure costs between $3600 and $8500.
