Potential for unlimited number of eggs

Postby options on Mon Feb 27, 2012 10:29 am

How medicine is advancing is incredible. I heard on the news today that research is underway such that It may be possible in the not too distant future to have an unlimited supply of human eggs to aid fertility treatment. The research is apparently being done in America. It's based on stem cells (not sure how this medicine works really) where eggs can be produced in numerous quantities in the laboratory.

This is bound to help so many women - I've heard of really sad stories where women have had their eggs harvested and after 2 or 3 attempts that are unsuccessful run out of eggs.

This is exciting news for the future.
