A Swedish pioneering research team recently announced that they transplanted wombs to nine women. These nine women successfully received transplanted wombs donated from their relatives. Their conditions were good, so they are expected to become pregnant soon.
According to the doctors, womb transplanting is a new kind of surgery, so at present, it is just a trial. These women are expected to become pregnant and give birth to their own babies, which, however, can not be guaranteed. Some experts said that this trial provides another choice for those women without wombs.
Dr. Mats Brannstrom is the chair of the obstetrics and gynecology department at the University of Gothenburg and he is leading the initiative. The aim of their projuect is to test whether it is possible to transplant wombs into women so they can give birth to their own children. The women were born without a uterus or had it removed because of cervecal cancer, and most of them are in their thirties.
Brannstrom said the nine womb recipients were doing well. Many already had their periods six weeks after the transplants, which is an early sign that the wombs are healthy and functioning. The transplant operations did not connect the women's uteruses to their fallopian tubes, so they are unable to get pregnant naturally. But all who received a womb have their own ovaries and can make eggs.
Before the operation, they had some eggs removed to create embryos through in-vitro fertilization. The embryos were then frozen and doctors plan to transfer them into the new wombs, allowing the women to carry their own biological children.
For women, uterus is an important organ, which plays an indispensable role in giving birth to children. However, many a woman is suffering uterus diseases, thus making the dream of having their own children a dream forever. The uterus disease refers to lesions in various areas of uterine, such as inflammation, trauma, tumor and precancerous lesions, which is one of the most common diseases in women. Uterine diseases including endometritis, endometriosis
