A trans-gendered male with a female reproductive system has become pregnant.
He’s having a lot of trouble finding adequate medical care. And Arnold
Schwarzenegger made it look so easy in Junior.
This whole process, from trying to get pregnant to being pregnant, has been a
challenge for us. The first doctor we approached was a reproductive
endocrinologist. He was shocked by our situation and told me to shave my facial
hair. After a $300 consultation, he reluctantly performed my initial checkups.
He then required us to see the clinic’s psychologist to see if we were fit to
bring a child into this world and consulted with the ethics board of his
hospital. A few months and a couple thousand dollars later, he told us that he
would no longer treat us, saying he and his staff felt uncomfortable working
with “someone like me.”
In total, nine different doctors have been involved. This is why it took over
one year to get access to a cryogenic sperm bank to purchase anonymous donor
vials, and why Nancy and I eventually resorted to home insemination.
