It was one of the luckiest cards that nature dealt to men, that they dont have to endure the pain of childbirth. Well, boys, get your masculine scream of anguish finely tuned because it could soon be a possibility.
Uterus transplantation is an increasingly emerging procedure in the world of medical science. Top doctors have said that if it is possible in both women and transgender women, there is no reason why it shouldn’t work on men too.
Speaking to Yahoo, Dr. Karine Chung said:
My guess is five, 10 years away, maybe sooner. Male and female anatomy is not that different. Probably at some point, well figure out how to make that work.
A Swedish team have already transplanted uteri that were harvested from live donors, achieving five pregnancies and four births in women. The surgery is dangerous, but its something that many women are willing to risk.
As biological women have many support systems that men don’t, the surgery will inevitably be easier on ladies. However, things such as vasculature that’s needed to feed the uterus and the pelvic ligaments that support the uterus aren’t impossible to create artificially.
However, this kind of procedure is unlikely to be available to just any old Gary. It will cost mega bucks, meaning it will potentially price out some less fortunate people who are yearning to have kids. Oh, andthen there is small fact that we have absolutely no idea how a man carrying and giving birth to a baby could affect the child (or indeed the man) later on in life.
But, to be honest, we’re not entirely sure what all the fuss is about… Arnie did it years ago and even made a documentary about it with Danny DeVito.
