Attitudes of British Women with AUFI (aged 18yrs and older) towards Uterus Transplantation

I am Dr Natasha Hammond-Browning, a Lecturer in Law at Southampton University. I am requesting your participation in a study collating the opinions of British women aged 18years and older who are affected by Absolute Uterine Factor Infertility (women who either do not have a uterus or who have a non-functioning uterus) regarding uterus transplants and other means of becoming a mother. The survey should last approximately 15 minutes. You will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire. Personal information will not be released or viewed by anyone other than researchers involved in this project.

Any information you give will be kept completely confidential and in no cases will responses from individual participants be identified. As with any piece of research it is important to consider whether there are any risks to participants. The study involves minimal risk to participants (i.e., the level of risk encountered in daily life). There may be no direct benefit to you other than the sense of helping the public at large and contributing to knowledge.

All responses are treated as confidential, participants should be aware, however, that the experiment is not being run from a 'secure' https server of the kind typically used to handle credit card transactions, so there is a small possibility that responses could be viewed by unauthorised third parties (e.g., computer hackers). However, the data would appear only as a string of numbers, so your responses will remain totally anonymous.

Visitors to this web site are welcome to complete the study, although they will receive no credit or monetary compensation. Participation is voluntary. As this is an anonymous survey it is not possible to withdraw your responses after the survey has been completed.

If participants have further questions about this study, they may contact the principal investigator, Dr Natasha Hammond-Browning at

This survey has received ethics approval, Ethics ID 23927. If participants have further questions about their rights or if they wish to lodge a complaint or concern, they may contact Head of Research Governance, Research Governance Office, University of Southampton, Southampton, SO17 1BJ.
