Transgender individuals have the same organs as cisgender individuals assigned the same sex at birth. The term “transgender” refers to individuals whose gender identity does not align with their assigned sex at birth. Gender identity is a deeply-felt sense of being male, female, or another gender, and it is independent of one’s physical anatomy.
For example, a transgender woman (male-to-female) who was assigned male at birth will typically have male reproductive organs, such as a penis and testes. Likewise, a transgender man (female-to-male) who was assigned female at birth will typically have female reproductive organs, such as a uterus and ovaries.
It’s important to note that some transgender individuals may pursue gender-affirming surgeries, such as gender confirmation surgery (also known as sex reassignment surgery), to align their physical appearance more closely with their gender identity. These surgeries can involve the removal of certain organs, the construction of new genitalia, or other procedures to alter physical characteristics. However, the decision to undergo such surgeries is a personal one and not all transgender individuals choose to pursue them.
Ultimately, the organs that transgender individuals have are determined by their assigned sex at birth, and any changes to their physical anatomy are based on individual choices, medical interventions, and the availability of gender-affirming healthcare options.
