See, here, Annie isn't lying. At any point. She might not be telling the ENTIRE truth, but, she isn't lying at all, right?
And now Wendy knows Annie's history right up till she became Annie. Probably told.. as Annie. *headache*

You work on those eggs, Annie.

I dunno personally I think she is kinda lying with the whole can't get pregnant "yet" I mean she may not be lying to bree (I have a feeling I got that name wrong becUae I'm kinda half asleep here) but she could be lying to herself. No matter what she does she wasn't born a women meaning she can never have children biologically :/ I'm sorry if any of this comes off as offensive, I honesty do not mean it to, but unfortunately it is the cold hard truth.

@bloody_rose: Actually, they've performed uterus transplants for ciswomen in recent years and as it becomes less experimental they've been talking about doing so for transwomen. While the transplants are only temporary and long enough for those who had them to have a kid and then remove them due to potential rejection it's not out of the realm of scientific possibility that one day she might be able to carry a child.

@AndreaAD: oh I had no idea that was even an idea, that is amazing :D I really hope that eventually gets all the kinks worked out. For both infertile women and trans women.

Everyone who wants a child, deserves the chance to have one :)

@bloody_rose: @AndreaAD: It's also possible than in the future biomedical science will develop to the extent of taking a person's own stem cells then inducing them to grow into any specified tissue in vitro (probably using a collagen scaffold).

So potentially there exists the possibly to artifically grow a uterus for transwomen from her own tissues. Obviously the birth would have to be via c-section (the opening in the pelvis wouldn't be large enough for conventional delivery) but there'd be no issues of rejection.

Ovaries would be considerably harder, but it may be possible to take a stem cell, remove the DNA, replace with that from one of their (previously frozen) sperm, add the DNA from a partner's gamete and induce mitosis. However, there'd probably be numerous regulatory hurdles to overcome in addition to the practicality.

Lili Elbe

The first "successful" MtF SRS was started in 1930, with four surgeries, and was finished two years later.

From Wikipedia {but I've read it elsewhere if you really don't trust an online encyclopedia}:

"The first surgery, removal of the testicles, was made under the supervision of sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld in Berlin. The rest of Elbe's surgeries were carried out by Kurt Warnekros, a doctor at the Dresden Municipal Women's Clinic. The second operation was to implant an ovary onto her abdominal musculature, the third to remove the penis and the scrotum, and the fourth to transplant a uterus and construct a vaginal canal."

So in truth, they have done this before. Unfortunately, Lili only lived 3 months after her final surgery in June of 1931, on 13Sep31, due to cardiac arrest due to her immune system rejecting the uterus.
