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.

      My wife's family has been visiting for a few weeks and we've recently been at the Northern California coast for the last few days. I let my wife's brother know that I was trans two days ago and he was very supportive. He also asked if I would tell his kids, my niece and nephew (11 and 13) so that no one would have to keep any secrets.   I talked to my niece when we were out for a walk and she was fine with it, even a little happy since I think she felt special to have someone share a secret with her, and we have good connection with each other.

      Later, in the house, with my wife's sister, her brother and my niece, I told my nephew.

      Me: blah blah blah, so it's important that I let you know that I'm trans
      Nephew:  Really?
      Me: Yes...it's something I've always known...blah blah blah
      Nephew: (thinking for a few seconds)
                       OK (gets back on his device to look at stuff)
      We started chatting among ourselves again until a minute or two later...
        Nephew: I can't believe this is happening! How did I not know about this?
      (silence)
      Me: What? Nephew: They're going to make new seasons of the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon! This is the best day of my life!   It kind of put things in perspective for me. 😂 Our transitions are important to us, but there are more important things in a galaxy far, far away!

      My description probably doesn't do it justice but it seriously made me laugh out loud for quite a while!

      Welcome Natalie.  You are certainly not alone.  We are blessed today to be able to be open and share with others who understand and are living a similar reality. Glad you've joined us.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Julie i'm glad you've joined us here.  I was 63 when i went full time so i know how great it feels to know who i am regardless of how i had to present.  Today i can't see myself going back to pretending.  i'm simply enjoying living my life as myself. Let us know how it goes.  The support i found here and from other trans friends helped me a great deal(and still does).   Hugs,   Charlize
    • Jani
      Yes you're correct.  My electrologist has said you have to catch them at the right time.  Which is why I have a regular weekly appointment.   At first it seemed like everything was growing back but eventually the time on the table paid off as the hairs got finer and then were banished.   
        I've joked that its like B D S M without the B!      Hang in there.  No one promised this was easy!

      Oly, i reread the poem you posted earlier.  I know things may seem impossible at this point but that is only temporary.  The fact that someone saw a scar may well be an opportunity to ask to get some help from a medical professional who can help you deal with life's difficulties.  You don't have to be specific about the why's to a family member.   I was very self destructive for years but that has passed and life is generally really good.  I got professional help and also spent time here seeing how others were dealing with similar problems. You might want to post an introduction in that forum.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Julie I'm glad you're on your journey and have joined us.  Many of us here started later in life.     This is good!     Jani
    • Jani
      That's one reason why this forum exists.  You are among friends and can be yourself here.   Jani

      Dakota I would speak with the pharmacy manager or head pharmacist the next time you are in the store, whether or not you have a script to be picked up.  She obviously breached the level of confidence and privacy you are owed.     Jani
    • VickySGV
      The truth that they need to know is that you did it in reaction to a stressful set of situations that you are discussing with competent medical personnel who are helping you to get out of the stress, and trying to help keep you safe.  You will tell them more of the story when the real root of the problem is better known, and when your medical team thinks you are ready.   If they go snooping further, shut up and get away from them.

      Take care of yourself. Other than lots of water like others have already said. If I am hot and sweating cold or ice water can really make me sick. Anymore I pretty much drink room temperature water except in restaurants with food. good luck with the meds. 
    • Rachael
      Sorry to hear you had a bad experience.  When I picked up my first prescription only the spiro made it, the doctor sent the other one and I went back in a few minutes. The pharmacist said oh they found the other one let’s see what you got, she pulls it out of the bag and looked at it then me and in a quiet voice leaned across the counter said this is, this is estrogen is that what you were expecting I replied yes. I thought she handeled it well.  Hope it gets better for you.

      My partner manages a bunch of pharmacies in CA and I know if one of his pharmacists did that he'd want to know and be sure to talk to them about how to talk with trans patients (hint: it's with the same respect for privacy you give all your patients). So if you are upset enough to want to write a note to the store, I think that would be totally appropriate. 
    • OlyVersion1
      One of my family members saw where I cut myself, and I don’t really know how to explain to them why I did it, because I am not out to them yet. What can I say to them?
    • VickySGV
      This is mild compared to what could have gone on thankfully. It could be a training issue too.  The "on lable" use of Spiro is more common.  She now belongs to the 16% of people who know they have met a Trans person. She needs to be aware of her awesome new status.You aer understandably miffed however.
