Unexpected Birth: Transgender Man In India Is Pregnant With His First Child.

It’s a common perception that only women can become pregnant but that’s not the case. Trans-men can also become pregnent.

It is believed to be the first instance of a transgender man being pregnant and delivering a child in India. Kerala-based dancer Ziya Paval took to Instagram and announced that her partner Zahhad is now eight months pregnant.

“We are about to realise my dream of becoming a mother and his dream of becoming a father. “

Paval and Zahhad have been living together for the past three years. They were undergoing hormone therapy. However, Zahhad, who was transitioning to become a man, has stalled it to conceive a baby.

The key to pregnancy is for a person to have a uterus and ovaries. If a trans-man —who is transitioning from a biological woman to a man— has retained these organs, then he can become pregnant.

There is also the technique of ̲u̲t̲e̲r̲u̲s̲ transplant, which involves transplanting a ̲u̲t̲e̲r̲u̲s̲ into a person for the purpose of pregnancy. This technique is still highly experimental and dangerous. But it’s a possibility that it might become more common in the future with advancement, notes Healthline.

Mr. Doctor explains, “A person who was born male and is living as a man cannot get pregnant. However, some transgender men and non-binary people can…Anyone who has a ̲u̲t̲e̲r̲u̲s̲ and o͟v͟a͟r͟i͟e͟s͟ could become pregnant and give birth.”

“The first baby born from a transplanted ̲u̲t̲e̲r̲u̲s̲ arrived in Sweden during October of 2014. While this procedure is still in its early experimental stages, several other babies have been born through this method…But many have begun to speculate that this procedure could also apply to transgender women and other AMAB (assigned male at birth) folks.”
