Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

This innovative fertility treatment – Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy – can revive an older woman’s dormant eggs for fertilization. If Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy is successful, the patient may be able to get pregnant naturally. If not, fertility treatments such as IUI or IVF can help the patient achieve a pregnancy.

Expected Results of Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy is used to wake up and coax a woman’s nonfunctioning ovaries into producing viable eggs. Dr. Hugh Melnick has helped two women conceive naturally and achieve a live birth through Ovarian Rejuvenation. A third woman who conceived naturally unfortunately suffered a miscarriage early on in her pregnancy.

The therapeutic effect of Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy may take three to six months to be observed by the Doctor. Tissue transformation is not immediately obvious.

Beneficial results will be noticed between 2 to 4 weeks. Patients are monitored monthly for six months through blood tests to determine if the therapy was successful.

  • Therapeutic effects last 5 to 7 months
  • Periods will return to normal in 50 percent of cases
  • Symptoms of menopause will lessen
  • Increase in sexual drive
  • Improved quality of eggs

Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy
