Stem cells for Menopause

Menopause is a normal phase all women go through as they age. Menopause describes the changes a woman goes through around the time she stops menstruating, thus marking the end of her fertility period. Menopause usually occurs at around the age of 51 and is marked by hot flashes, poor sleep, mood changes and issues with the vagina or bladder. Stem cells have shown to lower these symptoms gradually and sometimes remove them.

Stem cells for fertility

Stem cells restore the ovarian functioning in women who suffer from premature ovarian failure and regulate their hormones.

Fertility preservation

Freezing your eggs early can improve your future prospects of pregnancy!

At the time of birth, the ovaries of every newborn female infant contain millions of eggs. Their numbers will have decreased dramatically by the time the female enters puberty. Even in the most fertile years, every woman loses many eggs each month due to aging processes. Additionally, the quality of the remaining eggs deteriorates.

Once a woman turns 40, only every tenth woman’s desire to conceive naturally is fulfilled. From age 45 onwards the birth of a child is very rare. Most women are well aware of the limits to their fertility. However, many women are unable to realise their wish to have children at the time that is biologically optimal - either for professional or health reasons or because they have not yet found a suitable partner.

Thanks to modern freezing techniques (the specialist term is “cryopreservation”), the female fertility reserves can now be used more efficiently and unfertilized eggs can be preserved for a planned pregnancy in the future. A condition for this, however, is that the eggs are preserved at a fairly early point in time - ideally between 20 and 30 years of age. This is supported by current medical data.
