Yahoo Parenting reported on Thursday that an 18-year-old girl who began her “transition” to male last year, took steps to ensure “he” could have a biologically-related child.
Cole Carman, who lives in San Francisco, decided that in addition to major surgery and hormone therapy she would undergo another medical procedure: having her eggs harvested.
The idea, however, came from the doctor treating Cole with hormones, according to Yahoo.
“I’ve always known I wanted to have kids of my own, so when my endocrinologist talked to me about it, it was a no-brainer,” Carman told Yahoo Parenting.
“During the procedure, a doctor used a needle to harvest as many egg follicles as possible, freezing them so they can be thawed and fertilized at some point in the future,” the report states.
