Default Could stem-cell research create genitalia?



If someone lost their testicles, ovaries, or other sexual organs and wanted to recover them; or in case of sex-changes they wanted to be able to reproduce naturally (womb, sperm and eggs production, etc). Could stem cells achieve all that, in theory?

no they will have to make a lot of changes for them to have working sex organs. well i think dude one will be more easy to make work but female will probably will never happen.

The hard part would be getting the complex muscles and nerves to link up again... But I think they've done genital reconstruction before, so growing them would seem to be easier
