An Alabama woman Stephanie Yarber (25) gave birth to a baby girl after the first ovary transplant in the United States. The ovary transplant came from her twin sister Melanie

“Her pregnancy went great and her labor went great without any complications” said Dr. L. Braden Richmond. Dr. Sherman Silber, an infertility specialist in St. Louis, performed the transplant in April 2004, and Yarber became pregnant only five months later.

Her sister Morgan, who has already three daughters, called the successful procedure a "partnership with God, my sister and me."
Stephanie became menopausal at age 14 and was unable to become pregnant. She had tried in vitro fertilization twice, using eggs donated by her sister, but nothing worked until the ovary transplant.

After almost 40 years research in this area the doctors and researchers finally managed first ovary transplantation in United States.

Dr. Silber said he has since performed the transplant surgery on two other sets of identical twins. He said he believes more infertile women will now seek out the procedure. There have been similar procedures performed outside the United States, like surgeons in China reported a successful whole ovary transplant between sisters more than a year ago.

The medicine goes forward from day to day and makes appreciable progress. The human will benefit from that progress in many aspects like this one with ovarian transplantation. This will awake the hope by all these women who have problems with pregnancy and fertility.
