According to Yahoo News, surgery could give anatomically-born men wombs of their own...sooner than you may think. Dr. Karine Chung, director of the fertility preservation program at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, thinks that science is getting close.

"My guess is five, 10 years away, maybe sooner," Chung told Yahoo News.

Uterus transplants are still in research stage, but progress is currently being made.

Dr. Christine McGinn, a plastic surgeon who performs transgender reassignments for both men and women, tells Yahoo News she is willing to bet that "every transgender person who is female will want to do it, if it were covered by insurance." McGinn, who is a transgender woman herself, explains the intense desire to be a mother.
