Trans male pregnancy, also known as transgender male pregnancy or transmasculine pregnancy, refers to a situation where an individual who was assigned female at birth but identifies and lives as a male becomes pregnant. This can occur when a transgender man retains their uterus and ovaries and has not undergone surgical removal of these reproductive organs.

Trans male pregnancy is possible through assisted reproductive technologies such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF). In IUI, sperm is directly inserted into the uterus, while in IVF, eggs are retrieved, fertilized with sperm in a laboratory, and then implanted into the uterus.

It’s important to note that not all transgender men desire or have the ability to become pregnant. Each individual’s reproductive goals and choices may vary. Trans male pregnancy requires careful consideration and planning, including discussions with healthcare providers who have expertise in transgender reproductive health.

If you are considering trans male pregnancy or have questions about fertility options, I encourage you to consult with a healthcare provider specializing in transgender healthcare or reproductive medicine. They can provide personalized guidance, discuss available options, and support you in making informed decisions based on your specific circumstances and goals.
