Absolute Uterine Factor Infertility (AUFI) is the final hurdle for assisted reproductive treatments. Uterus transplant trials are happening worldwide; in order to advance the debate around uterine transplantation (UTx) this article considers selection criteria for clinical trials from a UK perspective and makes recommendations for future selection criteria for UTx treatment. Recommendations advanced include the use of donor eggs, access for single women and women in same-sex relationships, prohibiting participation of women who are already mothers, and a preference for deceased donors and bioengineered uteri. With UTx treatment on the horizon it is important to proactively consider future selection criteria.
