|A 38-year-old woman from London who was declared sterile at 15 is due to give birth this week after receiving a new ovary transplanted from her identical twin sister and becoming pregnant.
After going through the menopause while still a teenager, the woman thought that she had no chance of having her own baby, but the revolutionary new procedure will give hope to thousands of women who long to become pregnant.
Among those who will benefit include the 100,000 British women who have gone through an early menopause.
Women whose fertility has been impaired by cancer treatment will also be offered a chance of experiencing motherhood.
