Lab-made ovaries may be the end of menopause.
Researchers at Wake Forest University's Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center are testing an artificially created ovarian tissue in rats with the ability to release estrogen and progesterone.
These artificial ovaries may mean a new way to treat or even prevent menopause in women.
Disinterest, pain and the inability to become aroused can make many women just want to avoid sex altogether. These factors can also indicate a medical condition known as Female Sexual Dysfunction, or FSD. As many as 75 percent of women experience FSD, and many women in this number think FSD happens as just another part of life caused by age or changes in hormones. As a result, way too many women suffer in silence. In fact, only 14 percent of women ever talk to their gynecologist at all about sex! Dr. Alqulali offers patients a safe place to talk about sex. She also offers the O-Shot, an injection that alleviates the symptoms of FSD.
