Jan 24th, 2016: Grow a Vagina

While I have heard the taunt, grow some/grow a pair, of balls, I don't think I've ever heard the suggestion of growing a vagina.
Of course it would be a ridiculous task... until now.
They're doing right now in laboratories.



First of all, I didn't know there was a need, I'd never heard of Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome.
So I didn't know 1 in 5000 girls are born with underdeveloped or missing vaginas.
Everything looks cool and normal on the outside, but the plumbing is missing on the inside.

TYWKIWDBI says

Quote:
Medical researchers took a vaginal tissue sample from each patient, who were between 13 and 18 at the time, and used them to grow cells in the lab. After four weeks, the researchers had enough cells to layer them on to degradable scaffolding...

Six months later, the patients were able to menstruate and have sexual intercourse for the first time. “After the operation they were able to function normally,” Atala told reporters. “They had normal levels of desire, arousal, satisfaction and orgasm.” Some may also be able to have children.
I find this all quite amazing, finding your god is flawed is traumatic, but finding it can be fixed by science... priceless.
If I had one of those put in me, I could perform the other thing suggested to me so often.
Hey Congress! no stem cells were harmed in the making of this post.

From the original Washington Post story, there were only four patients in the study. I bet the parents of the 13-17 year olds were super thrilled that this detail was added.

Hahahaha. I hadn't spotted that.

Yer clearly not looking at the right funny parts of the Internet, Bruce

I love that she just turned 94 and has apparently just always been as spicy as a bowl of jalapenos.

I was speaking of personal experience, Snake.
