Does A Transgender From Woman To Man Can Have Children?
Dear Doctor, I want to ask, can a transgender from woman to man have descendants? Or does he experience infertility? Please explain. Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Transgender is a term for people who feel that their gender identity is not in accordance with their gender at birth, including if someone who is born with a female sex feels that he really is a man. This condition often makes the sufferer feel the need to do something to become the gender he believes in, such as dressing and behaving like the opposite sex, even to undergo certain medical actions, such as hormone replacement therapy or surgery (such as genital surgery, surgical removal of the uterus, and so on women who want to be men).
With regard to your question, whether transgender will be affected by fertility, the answer to this question can certainly vary depending on the efforts made by the transgender. If he only changes the way he is dressed and behaves to be like a man, of course this condition will not have an impact at all on his fertility. If what is done is hormone replacement therapy, then this condition can also reduce fertility and reduce the potential for pregnancy, although it is also not impossible at all. Which can cause infertility, is if the woman is to perform surgical removal of the uterus or adnexanya (fallopian tubes and ovaries).
That's all our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with your doctor or andrology specialist, right?
I hope this helps.
