The genitals that transgender people have vary depending on their individual biology and gender identity. Some transgender people may have the genitals that typically correspond to their assigned sex at birth, while others may have had surgery to change their genitals to match their gender identity.
For example, a transgender woman who was assigned male at birth may have a penis and testicles. However, she may choose to have surgery to create a vagina and vulva. Conversely, a transgender man who was assigned female at birth may have a vagina and uterus. However, he may choose to have surgery to create a penis and scrotum.
It is important to note that not all transgender people choose to have surgery on their genitals. Some transgender people are comfortable with the genitals they were born with, while others may choose to have surgery for other reasons, such as to improve their physical comfort or to make their bodies more aligned with their gender identity.
Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to have surgery on one’s genitals is a personal one that should be made by the individual transgender person in consultation with their doctor.

⦁ The genitals of transgender individuals can vary depending on the individual’s gender identity, their personal choices, and any gender-affirming surgeries they may have undergone. It’s important to recognize that not all transgender individuals undergo surgical interventions and that transgender people have diverse experiences and bodies.
⦁ For transgender women (assigned male at birth, but identifying as female), the genitals they have before any surgical interventions are typically male genitals. Some transgender women may undergo gender-affirming surgeries such as vaginoplasty, which involves creating a neovagina, to align their physical appearance with their gender identity.
⦁ For transgender men (assigned female at birth, but identifying as male), the genitals they have before any surgical interventions are typically female genitals. Some transgender men may undergo gender-affirming surgeries such as phalloplasty or metoidioplasty to create male genitalia. Others may choose not to pursue surgical interventions and may use prosthetics or packers to create the appearance of male genitals.
