In an announcement today researchers from Cleveland announced that they have used PRP (platelet rich plasma) to restore function to the ovaries of women who have gone through premature menopasue.
Once menopause typically signals the end of a woman’s ability to ovulate, have menstrual cycles, produce her own estrogen, or become pregnant.
However, in this study of a dozen women, the platelet-rich plasma into the ovaries has restored some function, according to the results online today in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society
Usually the onset of menopause is age 51. Early menopause, is as the cessation of ovarian function at or
before the age of 45 years, and happens in about 1/10 women.
Menopause also means infertility, or that you have now concluded the ability to have your own pregnancy, although becoming pregnant is with donor eggs has become a more common fertility treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) has been used for almost 40 years in other areas of medicine and is being used commonly in hair restoration, skin health, libido and vaginal health, as well as for anti-aging skin therapies.
