have you heard of a womb transplant? it is another option that can substitute surrogacy or adoption. are there successful cases of such performed already?

I haven't heard of one..sorry! This womb transplant is so new to me, and I don't know if there is really such a thing.

Geraldine - June 4th, 2010 8:15 AM

Yes, there is. As a matter of fact, there are many successful cases happened in US and UK already.

Womb transplant is like giving every women hope especially those who are having infertility problems a chance to conceive. But seriously sake, i don't really believe it.

Really? So how does it works? The womb meaning the uterus is transplanted to a another person, that is really cool.

There are successful cases of womb transplant. This procedure usually is recommended for women with infected uterus that is not capable of bearing a child.

ISPRose - February 9th, 2011 5:41 AM

i don't think this exists, but i had heard of uterus transplant. are they the same?

Miss.Junky - February 9th, 2011 8:07 AM

this exists, In fact, the world's first womb transplant was carried out in 2000 in Saudi Arabia on a 26-year-old woman. The womb donor was an older, living lady who had had her womb removed for medical reasons. The womb was attached to the recipient's blood supply, and she was given immunosuppressant drugs similar to those prescribed for recipients of kidney transplants.

Gynaecological surgeons believe that a revolutionary new womb transplant procedure may offer hope to women who are unable to get pregnant because their wombs have been removed, are weak or damaged, or because the women themselves have been born without a womb (also called the uterus).

Womb transplants are also now being looked into for application for transsexuals. The advances in science has made this possibility closer to reality. Transsexual women who will have successful womb transplants can bear children and make them "fully complete" as a woman. That is the only thing lacking for transsexuals because they cannot bear a child due to the lack of internal female reproductive organs.
