New options for infertile women

New options for infertile womenBritish researchers have found that a recently discovered protein called kisspeptin can stimulate the release of reproductive hormones in infertile women, suggesting that the hormone could help restore fertility.

In animals, kisspeptin has been shown to play a role in reproduction as well. In seasonally breeding rodents, such as the Siberian hamster, researchers have shown that shorter days lead to diminished production of kisspeptin, which is accompanied by the loss of the reproductive urge. Injecting the hormone into the animals in winter restores the ability to mate.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
