Doctors Develop Procedures That Could Delay Menopause For 20 Years

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) experts in Britain have developed a surgical procedure that could postpone the onset of menopause for up to 20 years. The procedure advances by removing a small piece of the patients’ ovarian tissue which is then sliced up and frozen for the purpose of preservation and later implantation. On reaching the ideal age for menopause, the frozen tissue is thawed out and grafted back into the body, thereby restoring the woman’s declining sex hormones; halting menopause; and also putting off adverse health conditions. The surgery is now being offered to women who are up to the age of 40 by ProFam, a Birmingham-based company, at a cost ranging between £7,000 and £11,000. Simon Fishel, the founder of ProFam and president of the UK Care Fertility Group, sa...
