How can a transgender person get pregnant? Pregnancy is possible for transgender men who retain functioning ovaries and a uterus, such as in the case of Thomas Beatie. Regardless of prior hormone replacement therapy treatments, the progression of pregnancy and birthing procedures are typically the same as those of cisgender women.
Can a transgender woman get a period? Menstruation, or a period, is a part of many people’s lives. For some trans and gender diverse people, getting their period is a normal and okay part of being in their body, and for others it’s uncomfortable and even an actively distressing experience.
Can a male turned into a female get pregnant? People who are born male and living as men cannot get pregnant. A transgender man or nonbinary person may be able to, however. It is only possible for a person to be pregnant if they have a uterus. The uterus is the womb, which is where the fetus develops.
Can a man give birth to a child? Transplanting a uterus into a male body poses a challenge due to the lack of natural ligaments, vasculature, and hormones required to support the uterus. The uterus would either have to be donated by a willing donor or be tissue-engineered using the male’s stem cells and then implanted into the pelvic region.
