Gimme Your Uterus

Hysterectomies are such a common way of solving lady-part woes that the idea of a uterus transplant sounds totally foreign. Oddly enough, the uterus transplant, while rare now, might become more commonplace in the future. We can only imagine how difficult it would be to transplant such a blood-vessel rich organ, and that's only the beginning of the trouble with this particular transplant. The first uterus transplant, performed in Saudi Arabia in the year 2000, was rejected after 99 days because of major blood clotting. Weirdly enough, the woman who received the transplant was 26 years old, and her donor was a 46 year old woman with a history of ovarian cysts who was advised to have a hysterectomy (uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but if one doctor says to take it out, maybe don't transplant it into someone else?). On those days when one feels like ripping out her uterus with a fork, the idea of a uterus transplant actually sounds pretty good. {photo courtesy of the Washington Post}
