Woman with world’s first successful uterus transplant is pregnant ......................52813

Istanbul: The first woman to have a successful uterus transplant from a dead donor is pregnant, a hospital in southern Turkey said.

Derya Sert, 22, who was born without a uterus, had been receiving in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment after the successful transplant on August 9th, 2011.

Using one of Sert’s own eggs, doctors at Akdeniz University Hospital placed an embryo into her womb in March.
“Early test results are consistent with pregnancy. The patient is in good health at the moment. We will continue to update on developments in the coming period,” said Akdeniz University Hospital.


A successful birth would provide hope for women who are born without a womb or who lose it to cancer or other disease.
