Trans men can get pregnant if they have ovaries and a uterus. This is because testosterone, the hormone that is typically used in transgender hormone therapy, does not prevent pregnancy. In fact, some trans men who are on testosterone may still have regular menstrual cycles and be able to conceive naturally.

If a trans man wants to get pregnant, they may need to stop taking testosterone for a period of time. This is because testosterone can suppress ovulation, making it difficult to conceive. Once the trans man has stopped taking testosterone, they may need to wait several months for their menstrual cycle to return to normal.

Once the trans man’s menstrual cycle has returned to normal, they can try to conceive in the same way as any other person. This may involve having unprotected vaginal sex, or using assisted reproductive technologies (ART) such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

It is important to note that pregnancy can be a complicated process for trans men. This is because they may experience gender dysphoria during pregnancy, which is the feeling of discomfort or distress that a person may feel due to a mismatch between their gender identity and the sex they were assigned at birth. Additionally, trans men may face discrimination from medical providers, who may not be familiar with the needs of transgender people.

If you are a trans man who is considering pregnancy, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits involved. You should also find a doctor who is knowledgeable about transgender health and who can provide you with the support you need.

Transgender men, who have assigned female at birth but identify as male, have the potential to become pregnant if they have a functioning uterus and ovaries. However, it’s important to note that not all transgender men have a desire to conceive or carry a pregnancy.

For transgender men who wish to become pregnant, there are a few options available:
⦁ Pausing Hormone Therapy: Some transgender men who are undergoing hormone therapy may choose to temporarily suspend or adjust their hormone regimen to allow for ovulation and conception. This typically involves working closely with a healthcare provider to safely manage hormone levels and fertility.
⦁ Fertility Preservation: Prior to starting hormone therapy, some transgender men may choose to undergo fertility preservation procedures, such as egg retrieval or freezing, to preserve their reproductive options for the future. These preserved eggs can later be used in assisted reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), to achieve pregnancy.
⦁ Assisted Reproductive Technologies: Transgender men who have preserved their eggs or have a partner willing to donate eggs can explore options such as IVF. In this process, eggs are fertilized with sperm (from a partner or a sperm donor) outside the body and implanted into the transgender man’s uterus (if present) or a gestational carrier’s uterus.
⦁ Surrogacy: In cases where a transgender man does not have a uterus or is unable to carry a pregnancy, surrogacy can be an option. A gestational carrier, who is a person willing to carry the pregnancy, can be involved. In this scenario, the sperm (from the transgender man or a donor) and an egg (from the transgender man or a donor) are combined through IVF and implanted into the gestational carrier’s uterus.

It’s important to remember that these options may have varying degrees of accessibility, legal considerations, and associated costs. It is advisable to consult with reproductive health specialists, fertility clinics, or LGBTQ+-friendly healthcare providers who have experience in working with transgender individuals and can provide personalized guidance and support based on individual circumstances.
