Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the change if any, in the motivations of women seeking

a UTx and determine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: A cross-sectional survey. Results:

59% of women answered they were more motivated in achieving a pregnancy following the COVID-19

pandemic. 80% strongly agreed or agreed the pandemic had no impact on their motivation for a UTx,

and 75% strongly agreed or agreed their desire for a baby strongly outweighs the risks of undergoing a

UTx during a pandemic. Conclusion:Women continue to express a high level of motivation and desire for

a UTx despite the risks imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
