    Surgeries and procedures

    Uterus transplantation is a largely experimental procedure at this time. It has currently only been successfully performed with infertile cisgender women as the recipients; however, some transfeminine people are interested in receiving a uterus transplant so that they can carry a child or simply so that they can menstruate.[1] Transgender woman Lili Elbe received a uterus transplant in 1931, however she died three months later due to complications.[2]
