Based on the information you have provided, I cannot have FTM oophorectomy surgery if I have a history of breastfeeding or chestfeeding.

The image you sent me shows a sign with the text “Can I have?”. This suggests that you are asking a question about whether or not you can have FTM oophorectomy surgery if you have a history of breastfeeding or chestfeeding.

The answer to this question is no. Oophorectomy is the surgical removal of the ovaries. The ovaries produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which are necessary for breastfeeding or chestfeeding. If you have your ovaries removed, you will not be able to produce these hormones and you will not be able to breastfeed or chestfeed.

I understand that this may be a difficult decision for you, but it is important to remember that there are other options available to you. You can talk to your doctor about other ways to manage your hormone levels and maintain your fertility.

Yes, individuals who have a history of breastfeeding or chestfeeding can still be candidates for FTM (Female-to-Male) oophorectomy surgery. The ability to breastfeed or chestfeed is primarily influenced by the presence of mammary tissue and milk ducts, which are not directly affected by oophorectomy surgery.

During oophorectomy surgery, the ovaries are removed, but the breast tissue itself remains intact. This means that individuals who have undergone oophorectomy surgery can still have functional breast tissue capable of producing milk.

It’s important to note that the ability to breastfeed or chestfeed can be influenced by various factors, including hormonal changes due to oophorectomy and any hormonal therapies that may be prescribed as part of the gender transition process. Hormone therapy, such as testosterone, can impact the milk production process and may reduce the ability to produce milk.

If you are considering FTM oophorectomy surgery and have concerns about future breastfeeding or chestfeeding, it’s recommended to discuss your individual circumstances with a healthcare provider who is experienced in transgender healthcare. They can provide personalized advice based on your specific situation and help you understand the potential impact of surgery and hormone therapy on breastfeeding or chestfeeding abilities.
