Can A Woman Have Children With One Ovary
What happens if you replace one woman ovary with one mans teste surgically, would she become self-fertile?
Here are some...: Nice question to prod along fictional exploration. Realistically, such procedure bears no medical merit as far as what I could speculate in medicine at this time; technically, it would be extremely difficult if not impossible; financially, very unnecessarily costly; and functionally, it would not be self-fertile. Genetically, ovo-testis does exist in rare occasions but not function. ...Read more
Its better for all: Women with pcos have increased number of eggs. This however does not reflect the quality of these eggs (chromosomal make up) which is reflected by age.
