Can the menopause really be reversed?

Sturmey, Roger

Authors



Abstract

Scientists in Greece claimed recently to have “reversed the menopause”. They did this by injecting blood plasma that contains platelets into the ovaries of eight women who had not menstruated for around five months in order to stimulate ovarian regeneration. The scientists later recovered eggs from the ovaries. The eggs were able to mature and reach the stage at which they could be fertilised. Does this mean the end of menopause? At this time, the answer would almost certainly be “no”.
