Pregnant MtF?

Recommended Posts

Guest Basilo

First, this is not asking if a MtF can get pregnant, and I am sorry if this is in the wrong thread. So, basically, I keep running across articles on the internet saying that a transwomen had a uterus and ovaries grown from her own stem cells. No, as much as I hope this is real, I am highly doubtful of that. So, basically, can anyone find any information on this?

Highly doubtful......(I'd love it, but, doubt it...)

Yeah, that's the website I found too... But something isn't adding up. First of all, I've never heard of this website before and have no idea if it's trustworthy. Secondly, if this were true, it would have made headlines everywhere because of how big of a leap this would be for stem cell research, and because the the general public seems to be interested in these kind of stories... So, what do you all think?

I have never heard of this site and I would think if this was true it would be big news. Note that the story is dated 2009.

I have a hard time buying it.

I had a look at linked article and noticed the date. It's only a few hours off of 1st April, and probably posted as a prank article.

I thought it seemed too good to be true, and it would have made world news, one would think. Ah, well, maybe some day it will come to be.

How fun to speculate, but definitely a prank!

I believe we'll see it become a reality in the next 15-30 years, though perhaps only affordable for the priviledged - doesn't help those of us now. Remember the Human Genome Project? I heard on NPR yesterday that you can now have your entire genome sequenced for $3k and they will give you a report of all the conditions you may be genetically at risk for. It's not fertility, but it's the kind of medical science that will eventually make fertility in MtF and FtM possible.

I'm not buying it aswell.. I also thing Stem cell research is edgy and something bad will come from it.

15 years? Lol, predictions I've read put it at 5-10 years, and that honestly sounds pretty accurate, so....

Having examined several thousand hysterectomy specimens ove an 28 year career in Pathology, the uterus requires a very intricate vascular system. We have the ability to transplant many human organs today. We are the edge of many break throughs in stem cell technology and treatments. I'll go out on a and predict that in the next 25 to 50 years medical science will be able to grow replacement organs up to and including growing a functional uterus fallopian tubes and ovaries as replacement for GG females who lose theirs as well as a functional uterus for TG woman. Imagine the history that would be made to be the first TG woman to give birth.

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess

      Thanks for your thoughts and especially this, Laura Beth. Many of us may have faced clues along the way and didn't understand them until much later in life. It wasn't until I came out to myself, with the help of a therapist, that the confusion I faced throughout my life finally made sense. And yes, the future is brighter.   Gwen

      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize

      One of the great advantages of going to a therapist was having an opportunity to remember and share a lifetime of experiences similar to those you describe.  Somehow being open and honest was a step i needed in finding the strength and confidence to follow my path.   Thank you for reminding me of my past as well as sharing your own.   Hugs,   Charlize

      It all gets a bit complicated at times   Here it it a standing joke about not having to see someone's medical records to know their issues, just sit in the reception at the doctors surgery and listen to the receptionist! Not really funny, but it happens a lot.   For me it is a daily thing as I am not planning a namechange etc in the near future, but only occasionally gets too much. Its always going to be easier wth one name and one gender.   Tracy

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."
