Uterine factor infertility (UFI) may affect up to 1 in 500 reproductive age women. The uterus is an essential component of achieving pregnancy and carrying a pregnancy to term successfully. There are many etiologies of UFI which may be categorized into either congenital or acquired causes. In this review, we discuss the different causes of UFI as well as the treatment options, which now includes uterine transplant.
