Are there any controversies about uterus transplantation between family members, especially between mother and daughter?

By Dr. Antonio Requena Miranda (gynecologist).
Last Update: 12/31/2021

Personally, I don't think it would be any more of a problem than donating any other non-vital organ between family members (in fact, this is done with kidneys). The uterus is a very important organ as it "houses" the fetus for 9 months but does not provide any genetic information to the embryo.
