Bizarre methods of curing any number of ailments are prevalent across a myriad of cultures, yet I don’t think anything comes close to beating the ovaries of an aborted female fetus.

It has been reported that at the No. 2 Hospital of Zhengzhou University in China, the ovaries of an aborted female fetus were transplanted into a 28-year-old woman.

The woman, who hails from the northern part of the Henan Province, was said to be “easily stressed and suffer(ed) from mood swings, disturbed sleep, and insomnia.” All of this took place over the past two years, and was accompanied by an increased coarseness of her skin.

Labelled “menopause syndrome” due to the “pre-senility” of her ovaries, the bizarre transplant appears to have been a success as her symptoms have subsided and she has been able to get some decent rest.

Whether or not she has absorbed the powers of the aborted fetus is unknown.
