    Transgender and new to forum

    Hi everyone, my name is Isobel. I知 new here, so I hope I知 writing in the right place.

    I知 a 19 year old transgender woman (that is male to female), who has had gender reassignment surgery and also taken HRT, which has meant I am permanently infertile.

    I don稚 even know if I want to have children yet, but I知 definitely saddened by the fact that I can稚 get pregnant yet. I struggle with issues of feeling 電ifferent to other females as a result of my infertility, and I was wondering if others in the community share this/have ways of coping?

    Hi Brokenprincess,

    Infertility is hard. It doesn't matter whether you have a diagnosis or are undiagnosed, not being able to start your family when and how you always dreamed is unfair. Thankfully, there are so many ways to grow our families. You can adopt, you can use a gestational surrogate, you can use donor tissue (eggs, sperm, embryos). You might fall in love with a partner who has children from a previous relationship and become one awesome stepmom! When you are ready to start your family (should you decide you want to have kids), your journey will be just as unique as you are and that is a beautiful thing.

    In the meantime, have you thoughts of seeing a therapist? If not, you may want to consider it as they are an unbiased party who can help you navigate your own thoughts and feelings. A therapist who is specially trained to address transgender topics (like fertility after reassignment surgery) may be especially helpful.
