Holy Hormones Journal: Holy Hormones Honey! Reawakening the ovaries by the very same technology that has created premature menopause in the first place? Am I missing something? Women – do we really want our bodies and our ability to have babies controlled by medical technology? It was this very technology and the byproducts, toxins – depleted nutrients in our foods has gotten us in this mess in the first place. And now we – WOMEN – have to turn around and be grateful for this very same medical system to bring our ovaries back to life?
Ok – this may be harsh for women desperate for a baby – however, this is a dangerous trend. Let’s look at the big picture. Put adolescent pubescent’s on steroidal synthetic birth control at an early age – after they have been born with hormone imbalance from hormonally imbalanced mother’s who have been on steroidal synthetic birth control for generations; depleted nutrients in our diet – and therefore Mother Nature – her brilliant balance and check system, prevents our bringing babies into the world who will not thrive.
If the ovaries have shut down – there is a reason. Common sense. Do we really want medical professionals to wake them up until the problem is understood? Did you read anywhere in this article about the health outcome of the one infant that was born?
Early menopause: Baby born after ovaries ‘reawakened’
October 1, 2013
Doctors in the US and Japan developed the technique to remove the ovaries, activate them in the laboratory and re-implant fragments of ovarian tissue.
The technique, reported in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, has resulted in one baby being born, with another expected.
The findings were described as early, but a “potential game-changer”.
The 27 women involved in the study became infertile around the age of 30 due to “primary ovarian insufficiency”. The condition affects one in 100 women who essentially run out of eggs too young, leading to an early menopause.
Women have a fixed number of eggs at birth and those with the condition tend to use them up too quickly or are born with far fewer eggs in the first place.
Eggs in the ovaries are not fully formed; rather, they stay as follicles and some mature each month.
The teams at Stanford University, US, and St Marianna University School of Medicine, Japan, were trying to activate the last few remaining follicles, which may be present.
They removed the ovaries from the women and used a combination of two techniques to wake up the sleeping follicles. First they cut the ovaries into fragments, which has been used in the past as a fertility treatment. Then a chemical to “take the brakes off” egg development was applied.
The fragments were put back at the top of the fallopian tubes and the women were given hormone therapy.
