Fertility Preservation for a Teenager with Differences (Disorders) of Sex Development: An Ethics Case Study.

Fertility preservation has become more common for various populations, including oncology patients, transgender individuals, and women who are concerned about age-related infertility. Little attention has been paid to fertility preservation for patients with differences/disorders of sex development (DSD). Our goal in this article is to address specific ethical considerations that are unique to this patient population. To this end, we present a hypothetical DSD case. We then explore ethical considerations re...

Fertility desires and reproductive needs of transgender people: Challenges and considerations for clinical practice.

The majority of transgender and gender nonconforming persons seeking medical care are of reproductive age. Hormonal treatment and sex reassignment surgery, which are used in the management of gender dysphoria, compromise fertility potential. Children and adolescents with gender dysphoria have specific treatment regimens starting with puberty-blocking medications. According to international guidelines, fertility preservation should be discussed before any hormonal treatment, although our knowledge on the rep...

A heuristic inquiry on the role of person-environment interaction in suicide risk among transgender youth.

Elevated levels of suicide risk among transgender youth have alarmed both public health officials and researchers from various disciplines. Despite nursing's robust involvement in suicide research, literature reviews indicate a lack of nursing research focused on suicide among transgender youth. Most of the existing literature pertain to predictive factors in either the individual or environmental domain. There is limited research examining how interactions with the environment in of itself might be a predi...

What's in a Pronoun?: The Ungovernability and Misgendering of Trans Native Kids in Juvenile Justice in Washington State.

Recognition of transgender identities and best practices in care for trans youth in juvenile justice settings have been gaining increased visibility. However, in interviews with juvenile justice defense attorneys, I have found that even attorneys who want to be supportive and affirming of transgender youth struggle with consistently affirming the youth's pronouns, especially in the case of Native trans youth. In this article, I will explore the ways that systems of "justice" are not set up to recognize tran...

Preservation of fertility in patients with cancer (Review).

Survival rates in oncological patients have been steadily increasing in recent years due to the greater effectiveness of novel oncological treatments, such as radio‑ and chemotherapy. However, these treatments impair the reproductive ability of patients, and may cause premature ovarian failure in females and azoospermia in males. Fertility preservation in both female and male oncological patients is nowadays possible and should be integrated as part of the oncological healthcare. The main objective of thi...

Breast Reduction Following Hormonal Therapy in a Transgender Female Patient.

In male-to-female gender transition, individuals request a number of interventions, including hormonal therapy, to promote feminizing characteristics. Estrogen-based medication is prescribed to increase breast development, decrease facial hair, promote feminine adipose tissue deposition, and soften skin. Surgical breast augmentation to supplement unsatisfying breast growth after hormonal therapy is a common and well-studied course of management for such transgender patients. In a departure from convention, ...

Oncofertility in urologic oncology: Fertility preservation for women undergoing cancer treatment.

Gonadal Tissue Cryopreservation for Children with Differences of Sex Development.

Infertility is common for individuals with differences of sex development (DSD) and is a significant concern to these individuals. Fertility potential in many DSD conditions is poorly understood. Gonadal tissue cryopreservation (GTC) for fertility preservation (FP) is offered to children with cancer undergoing gonadotoxic therapy. Our team sought to expand the field of FP by offering and evaluating the success of GTC for individuals with DSD.

Variations in Testing for HIV and Other Sexually Transmitted Infections Across Gender Identity Among Transgender Youth.

Transgender youth are at high risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), but their rates of screening are unknown. This study sought to quantify HIV and other STI testing levels and to examine variations in testing levels across three categories of gender identity: transgender men, transgender women, and nonbinary individuals. Between June 2017 and June 2018, 186 transgender youth aged 15-24 years were recruited into a randomized trial of home HIV testing ...

Fertility preservation from the point of view of hematopoietic cell transplant specialists-a worldwide-web-based survey analysis.

With the increase in cancer survival, men and women have a chance to conceive children post-recovery. This study aims to better understand hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) specialist practices and opinions related to fertility preservation for hematological malignancy patients.

Results were reported as a ...

Series: Medical options for care for gender diverse and transgender youth: Updates for gynecologic and reproductive health providers Title: Part 1: Psychosocial Overview of Gender Affirmative Care.

Transgender and gender diverse youth and their families are increasingly presenting to adolescent gynecological providers for education, care, and referrals. These youth more often face mental health and social disparities that frequently go unrecognized or unaddressed by providers. A gender affirmative approach focuses on providing emotional validation, psychological safety, and support to young patients and their families. With better understanding of the unique needs of transgender and gender diverse pop...

The effect of hormone therapy on sleep-disordered breathing in transgender patients has not been described. We present three cases of patients undergoing gender reassignment and treated with hormone replacement. The first case was a transgender woman (assigned male at birth) with a prolonged history of severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) that resolved following initiation of female sex hormones. The second and third cases both address transgender males (assigned female at birth) in whom OSA developed follo...

Cigarette Smoking Among Youth at the Intersection of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.

The purpose of this study was to identify subgroups of sexual and gender minority (SGM) youth who are most vulnerable to tobacco use. We analyzed data from a national nonprobability sample of 11,192 SGM youth (ages 13-17). Age of cigarette initiation and current use were modeled using Cox proportional hazard and binomial regression. Sexual and gender identities were explanatory variables and the models were adjusted for ethnoracial identity and age. Approximately 7% of the sample reported current smoking....

Establishing reproductive potential and advances in fertility preservation techniques for XY individuals with DSD (differences in sex development).

Discordance between gonadal type and gender identity has often led to an assumption of infertility in patients with differences in sex development (DSD). However, there is now greater recognition of fertility being an important issue for this group of patients. Currently, gonadal tissue that may have fertility potential is not being stored for individuals with DSD and, where gonadectomy forms part of management, is often discarded. The area of fertility preservation has been predominantly driven by oncofert...

The Knowledge, Attitude, and Self-Reported Behaviors of Oncology Physicians Regarding Fertility Preservation in Adult Cancer Patients.

There is a growing concern about the fertility preservation for adult cancer patients of reproductive age. Very little literature exists about fertility preservation of cancer survivors in Chinese text. This study is first to describe the knowledge level, attitude, and practice behaviors among physicians concerning fertility preservation in adult cancer patients in China. A cross-sectional survey with 30-item was conducted to assess Chinese oncology physicians' knowledge, attitude, and behaviors regarding f...

Satisfaction, disappointment and regret surrounding fertility preservation decisions in the paediatric and adolescent cancer population.

With over 80% of paediatric and adolescent cancer patients surviving into adulthood, quality-of-life issues such as future fertility are increasingly important. However, little is known about regret around decisions to pursue or forgo fertility preservation (FP). We investigated the risk of decision regret in families involved in making a FP decision and explored contributive factors.

Sexually transmitted infection positivity among adolescents with or at high-risk for human immunodeficiency virus-infection in Los Angeles and New Orleans.

Gay, bisexual, and transgender youth and homeless youth are at high risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). However, little recent data exist describing STI positivity by anatomical site among those groups. We determined the positivity of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) infection, Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) infection, and syphilis antibody reactivity among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and homeless youth.

Hormone replacement therapy: informed consent without assessment?

Florence Ashley has argued that requiring patients with gender dysphoria to undergo an assessment and referral from a mental health professional before undergoing hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is unethical and may represent an unconscious hostility towards transgender people. We respond, first, by showing that Ashley has conflated the self-reporting of symptoms with self-diagnosis, and that this is not consistent with the standard model of informed consent to medical treatment. Second, we note that the ...
