r/Health – New medical procedure could delay menopause by 20 years – Doctors remove a small piece of ovarian tissue, which is frozen to preserve it. When women enter menopause, the frozen tissue can be thawed out and grafted back into the body at a site with a good blood supply, such as the armpit.

TIL many women welcome menopause. Makes sense considering the hormonal yo-yoing a lot of you endure. I had thought of menopause more as going through a kind of second puberty, which would suck, especially considering the physical result in terms of things like lowered bone density, increased visible signs of aging, etc. And my mom’s menopause seems like it has gone on forever and has been very uncomfortable for her. Appreciate the different perspectives.
