Latest breakthrough in fertility treatment
Guess what ladies!? That horrid biological clock that ticks ever so loudly in the back of our minds, increasingly so with age, may hold no weight. It’s not yet entirely certain but research is promising.
In the latest breakthrough in fertility treatment, American scientists have used stem cells from human ovaries to produce lab-grown egg cells.
Women are born with a supply of egg cells that must last throughout life. But if these cells can be regenerated, then time is no issue. Our biological clocks will be rendered redundant.
Now, on the down side, cells grown in a laboratory often develop abnormalities, a problem that would need correction before any egg could be accepted for fertilisation.
BUT… researchers are that much closer to making a huge breakthrough in fertility treatment, if the study is validated.
