Scientists at Stanford University of Medicine have developed a radical new treatment to stimulate egg production in infertile women who suffer from 'primary ovarian insufficiency' a condition that causes early menopause.
Dr Aaron Hsueh and Yuan Cheng, who made the discovery, explained their work in a video produced by Stanford University.
The scientists said the treatment could be a "real breakthrough" in treating infertile women, but that more studies, particularly on women whose infertility is caused by other factors, is needed.
