      What an awesome question. Well it has been known for years that the ovaries don’t scar. In fact the uterus doesn’t scar either. Each month when a women has her period the lining of the uterus is stripped away and it heals again with out scarring. This phenomenon has been remarked upon for over 50 years. Its only recently that we have the technology to discover the exact way this happens and there are a lot of scientists in the world trying to do this. Although they don’t plan to do the same things as I am doing with their research.
