Hi, if you lost your uterus but not your ovaries, you can still have babies from your own genetic material by hiring a surrogate to carry the pregnancy and using IVF. I know this is not what you are asking, but overall it might be cheaper (although it's not cheap!) than would a transplant, even if such a thing is available. The real problem with a uterine transplant that makes it something of an antithesis of what you want is that you would be on anti-rejection drugs, presumably for the purpose of being able to have a baby, for which purpose people usually stop taking all drugs because they might damage the baby. Anyway, I have never heard of a uterus transplant and that might be a big reason why, also they just might be too complex an organ (with their stretching and need for muscular support) to do a transplant with. Good luck in your search, and if you don't find what you need, do consider the surrogate and IVF option. Again, good luck.
Hello, here is some information I found online. I am sorry though, it seems that it has only been successful in mice, where the mouse was actually able to give birth after the transplant. The young female in Saudi Arabia, the first human uterine transplant patient, had blood clot complications and the uterus needed to be removed.
