Australian doctors helped a woman without ovaries have babies


Associate professor Kate Stern, head of fertility preservation of Melbourne IVF and the team proceeded to a delicate intervention putting back the ovarian tissue not in the abdomen of the young women but in an unusual position in the front wall of the abdomen, under the skin and muscle. After that, the woman received a gentle hormone stimulation. The ovarian tissue began to work and two eggs have been produced this way. The fertilization in vitro wasn’t a problem and finally the implant in the woman’s uterus was made.
Now, the 24 years old cancer survivor is happy to attempt twins with her partner. The result is pretty incredible and doctors appreciated this will be a way to help in the future many other couples found in a similar situation.
