Eye on Health: Talking Gynaecology with Dr. Rosa Lee Sant

View descriptionShare

03 July 2018: Every year, 21,000 women in the UK develop a gynaecological cancer. Yet it seems women are still too shy to speak up, with a fifth of women feeling unable to speak to their doctor about their symptoms.

We're spending an hour talking all things gynaelogical, as Dr Rosa Lee Sant from Prima Vera clinic in HealthCare city joins us.

Scientists have taken early steps towards developing an artificial ovary that could lead to improved fertility preservation treatments. The technique is aimed at helping women at risk of becoming infertile, such as those who receive chemotherapy.

The Danish scientists removed parts of the ovary and altered them so they could potentially be transplanted later when the woman wants to conceive. Experts say the work is "exciting" but human testing is still needed.
