Stem cells isolated from menstrual fl uid have mesenchymal stem cell like properties and have multilineage differentiation capacity. Menstrual fl uid has ease of access in collection and repeated sampling is possible in a noninvasive manner. Also, rapid culture of these is possible in numbers that are suffi cient for therapeutic use. They are, hence, looked upon as a novel innovation and are fi nding a place in the current medicine practice.
