Pregnant MtF?

Recommended Posts

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...)

Hi Basilo,

I always thought it would be awesome to be able to bear a child, and so much of my angst revolves around not being able to; after all, only GGs can bear children. Your post made me wonder, so I did a lil' seach...

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.
