Baby Born After Ovary Transplant
A baby girl was born in London to a 38-year-old woman who received an ovary from her identical twin sister, a doctor said Wednesday.
The Daily Mail reported it was the world's first full ovary transplant.
"Women can always have egg donation but this is so much nicer and more convenient if it's safe," he said. "A young ovary can be transplanted back at any time and it will extend fertility and delay the menopause. You could even wait until you were 47."
