Fertility Restored – A Case Study

​Fertility Restored 

​Do you love to hear 'fertility restored' stories? I do! As a result, I have shared elsewhere examples such as ovarian function returns and premature ovarian failure pregnancy​.  

​This audio and article below explores another case of fertility restored which feels important to disect with you. It was inspired by an article by Ian Sample of The Guardian in 2016​. This is the gist of that column:

​Moaza Al Matrooshi from Dubai, the heroine in our narrative, had her right ovary removed and frozen when she was just 9 years old. Because she was being treated for a condition that required chemotherapy and would damage her ovaries.

What Happened...

​When she grew up and and was ready to have a baby, doctors transplanted "slivers of that ovarian tissue onto her left ovary, which had stopped working, and on to the side of her uterus". ​Her ovaries responded and, with her fertility restored, this 24 year old young woman went on to have a healthy baby boy!

But how can this happy story of fertility restored benefit you now? Especially, if 24 feels like aeons ago and you are thinking more along the lines of creating new eggs after 40​ or 50? Well, ​I see lots of feminine wisdom jumping out of this for you....

​The first relates to the fact that just "slivers of the ovarian tissue" were used to bring Moaza Al Matrooshi's remaining ovary back to life. This reminds me of a previous post I published exploring ovarian remnant syndrome - which sheds light on just how powerful the ovary is.

Fertility Restored With Just A Sliver

Even when it is not fully in tact. ​It's very important to understand this about your amazing feminine body if you are coping with infertility. Because most of us have another impression entirely about the ovary.

Our patriarchal​, male biased world has drummed into us the idea that our ovaries are very limited  - that their contribution becomes increasingly useless over time. We fear eggs running out​, being too old to have a baby and, more significantly, believe that this attitude stems from an accurate grasp of our creative potential and value as women.

​The patriarchal spotlight rarely shines on the feminine contribution to fertility restored or the amazing resilience and resourcefulness of the ovary. To the point that evidence of healthy eggs after 40​ is viewed -  almost - as female dishonesty. (See my post on ovulation after menopause​).

​So whether you have one ovary left or two​, it will serve you to be aware now of the creative power in just a sliver!

​Fertility Restored - Insight

​​But the part I really wanted to address in this article can be found in the following quote which reveals feminine wisdom you can draw on to transform infertility to motherhood​:

this audio comes about in response to a message I received from Chloe who was 45 and pregnant.

​ "Al Matrooshi went from being menopausal to having the ovary function of a normal woman in her 20s." 
Sara Matthews, Consultant Gynecologist, Portland hospital

Deirdre, how do we deal with pregnancy after so much history? I fear I don't have the tools to be a confident pregnant woman.

​Let me explain how that can support you. Because of our current understanding of age and fertility after 40, many of us - at this point in life - fear or feel that we are in a kind of menopause. Mentally, emotionally or physically - we can find ourselves in a place where we 'appear' not to be up to par (which is the patriarchal perspective on this stage of a woman's life). And we deduce that the end of our creative road is nigh.

. I'd like to support you is just to share what I hear in that question. And what is happening. It sounds like it is that you're reviewing your history of many efforts and many attempts and the feeling of failure where you've tried and it hasn't working for tried and it hasn't worked. And this has been repeated over and over in different ways in your fertility journey in your motherhood journey. And so I'd just like to remind you here that this kind of approach or interpretation of our fertility journey is very much a patriarca one in which success is only seen in terms of the outcome, the project the baby. And you were being invited to engage your feminine wisdom here because that's history his story the patriarchal interpretation and is time for her story, your story the feminine version of what has unfolded for you over the last year to show up here now because if you reflect back on all this journey you will see clearly how each of those experiences have helped you to show-up more authentically to discern Who you really want to be in the world and have added to your empowerment to your sense of serve to your sense of integrity to your confidence and to your allowing yourself to be you instead of having to do this in a particular way at a particular time. This journey has made you step up and say you know I want it now even if the circumstances aren't perfect according to the patriarchal download.

​Engaging Feminine Wisdom

​But apart from providing us with more evidence that menopause reversal is possible and adding to our understanding of what menopause means, there is more feminine wisdom in this for you.

It took ​Moaza Al Matrooshi just 3 short months to evolve from being a woman in menopause to enjoying the normal ovarian function of a woman in her 20s. (I am reminded here of my article on the new fertility calculations in fertility over 50). Wow! That ovaries can transform and heal so rapidly is just phenomenal because if you recall, her ovary had stopped working.

​​And I want you to realise that this creative potential is part of your feminine being. Not alone do you have an amazing capacity to survive dangerous conditions (like patriarchy which has been dangerous for the feminine in so many ways!). That alone is worthy of note.

But feminine empowerment can happen in such a short period of time. This is something you need to hear now. Because it is whispering of the hidden potential of your ovaries that, thanks to these doctors and women like Moaza Al Matrooshi, we are only just beginning to glimpse.

​​Fertility Restored Within You!

​In my view, this story demonstrates that your potential is activated by pouring your Creative Feminine™ into what you really want. As opposed to what you have been. Or what you have been told is possible for a woman of your age.

​So I'm going to invite you two intend to put aside, even temporarily, the limited view of the ovary that we have been force fed. Instead, choose to connect consciously with your ovaries - especially the part of them that is so powerful and resilient.

Because that exists within you now. Even if it feels like it has been frozen for years. Allow this powerful perspective of your ovaries to embrace you. And decide that, from now on, you will direct your Creative Feminine™ only into what you desire most!

I would love to hear your thoughts on this exploration of fertility restored and invite you to comment below. Because your feminine contribution here really matters.

And each of those experiences those baby's those attempts have added to you as a woman even if that's not obvious to the medical model or to patriarchy. And so I'd really be inviting you to really connect with your story in a new way and forget the patriarchal history so that you can write your own story and that links to the form stage of my feminine engagement method. But you are really being invited here now to switch that mantra in your head about failure and last in two one hour gain and empowerment and I'd actually be asking you to go through each of those parent classes and of course many of them will have been difficult and painful.
