New Delhi, Sept. 15 Ad­vances in med­i­cal sci­ence have now made preg­nancy pos­si­ble even among women who have achieved menopause.

Bring­ing cheer to a lot of women, who are now wit­ness­ing menopause quite early in life, the med­i­cal fra­ter­nity is mak­ing use of stem cells nes­tled in the ovary to pro­duce eggs even af­ter menopause.

Ruchi, a 35- year mar­ried lady, work­ing in the na­tional cap­i­tal, kept post­pon­ing hav­ing ba­bies be­cause of ca­reer and when she did want to have a baby, she re­alised she has just hit the menopause wall.

The avail­able op­tions for her to get preg­nant were ac­cept­able to her since they in­volved de­pend­ing on some­one else's eggs. She then came to know about stem cell ther­apy which promised what she wanted. She went in for re­ju­ve­na­tion of her ovary with stem cell ther­apy and within months she had her own eggs in the ovary and got preg­nant.
