Sherman J. Silber, MD. Director of The Infertility Center of St. Louis, Missouri. USA:
Studies show that if you are pregnant with COVID-19 there is no harm to the fetus. Careful scientific studies also show that certain drugs such as Chloroquine are extremely effective in treating the virus. In addition, experimental studies have shown that getting plenty of sleep can improve resistance to the virus. There are many myths and rumors about this virus, but the data below from well-established academic centers will detail the validity of the above statements. -Dr. Sherman Silber
Her twin sister, who has two children, donated one of her ovaries which the surgical team removed using keyhole surgery. Because both women are genetically identical, eggs from the donor ovary are equivalent to those produced by the patient herself.
Transplanting the ovary into the patient involved microsurgery to reconnect blood vessels as small as half a millimeter in diameter. Three months after the surgery, the patient had her first period in 22 years, indicating that she was ovulating normally again.
“To our knowledge, this is the first successful human intact whole ovary transplant leading to healthy pregnancy,” said Silber. He will present his results tomorrow at the American Society of Reproductive Medicine’s annual meeting in San Francisco.
The surgical tour de force follows previous successes by Silber with ovary graft transplants in which a slice of ovary tissue is grafted onto an infertile patient’s own ovary. The first graft transplant to produce a successful pregnancy happened in 2004, also between two twin sisters.
Silber also presented two other studies at the conference in which his team tested techniques for freezing ovaries for future transplant…
