Although women may suffer POI trying to conceive by natural or artificial, no measure of this is effective, helps them get own children. Based on the findings from previous studies that a few of the women with POI own immature eggs, is " asleep " in the ovaries, the two scientists from Stanford University and St Marianna was looking to " wake up " the eggs and " end " they grow during the maturity period.

The research team discovered that the eggs were kept in the immature status by 2 " brake " biology. The drug can either remove this break. The strange thing is, the remaining brake will be disabled when the experts cut into piece's ovaries before recovering a few of them.

According to the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers tested the method for the treatment of 27 female volunteers suffering from POI. In 5 of these women, the egg is stimulated to develop sufficiently to be able to use in vitro fertilization ( IVF ) .

As a result, IVF has failed in 1 case and are still being monitored in two other cases. However, a woman is pregnant and gave birth to another healthy baby boy is 1. The researchers revealed that the woman had been due to new methods of early menopause four years ago, when she was 25 years old. Researcher obstetrician Kazuhiro Kawamura directly to her successful Caesarean section.
