Abstract

Uterus transplantation (UTx) provides a new pathway to parenthood for patients with absolute uterine factor infertility. The application of reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization, embryo cryopreservation, and frozen embryo transfers, for this unique population, is particularly nuanced and continually evolving. There are important pretransplant and posttransplant reproductive considerations for physicians and patients anticipating UTx. As with any rapidly evolving medical innovation, efforts to consolidate experiences and knowledge by centers offering UTx is paramount.
