According to Dr Omuku Samuel, who is a gynaecologist at the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, women at menopause can still bear children with the aid of Invitro- Fertilisation (IVF).
The gynaecologist stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yenagoa this week.
Samuel explained that the oestrogen of such women that were lost could be regenerated medically to keep them healthy and strong to bear children once again. He said.
‘‘The IVF process is not difficult. It is normally carried out with the help of doctors.”
‘‘The process is by joining the female and male sperms together; this can help the persons to have many kids as they want.”
‘‘Menopause does not start suddenly, it occurs gradually and it can take up to five years before it can be noticed.’’
He further explained that menopause starts between the ages of 45 and 55 in a woman and the oestrogen hormones makes a woman younger, so when she lacks its, her breast and privates can become dry.
He said it is the oestrogen that maintains the woman’s private part; signs of menopause include waist and back pain, heat and hot flashes.
He adviced women with menopause not to lose hope because IVF can make them to reproduce children again.
