It will be argued that it follows from the principles of Ca2+- physiology and homeostasis that all individuals of a sexually reproducing animal population have a personalized gender behaviour. Thus, subdividing gender-behaviours in hetero-, homo-, bi-, trans- etc. which all result from a differential use of the very same basic physiological principles, is too primitive a system that may yield false sociological interpretations.

Treatment of GD enables the individuals to continue their life in their affirmed gender. For some transgender individuals, this implies the same as for cisgender persons, marriage or/and children. Members of the transgender population have the same desire for offspring, for the same reasons as the cisgender population, and fertility presents one of the most delicate issues. Infertility in trans-women is caused by orchiectomy as a part of the GAS. Conversely, hysterectomy and oophorectomy eliminate the chance of pregnancy in trans-men.
Cross-sex hormonal therapy also has an impact on fertility, but such treatment is not a definitive cause of infertility, due to the possibility of reversal. Three decades ago, Payer described that estrogen in trans-women leads to the reduction of testicular volume and has a strong suppressive effect on sperm motility and density . Testosterone therapy for trans-men leads to reversible amenorrhea according to Van Den Broecke's study in 2001 . Patients are usually at full reproductive age at the initiation of their transition and a clear majority of them express the desire for reproductive potential after transition [29, 30].
This is almost impossible, as irreversible transition means losing the option for having children. Dunne reviewed sterilization requirements for transgender people in Europe and found sterilization as the only possible option in 20 European countries; this means that any chance for biological offspring is lost with this transition .
This discrimination deeply undermines the fundamental bioethics law, and societies such as WPATH and the Endocrine Society advocate for counseling and detailed explanation of the consequences of treatment and viable options for fertility preservation. In addition, the possibility of sterility following the use of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones gives rise to further controversy and ethical dilemmas, as do options of cryopreservation prior to the start of cross-sex hormonal therapy and uterus transplantation for trans-women.
Results from Steensma et al. showed that majority of children developed homosexual orientation after completion of the GnRH treatment . As for potential consequences, Hembree recently reported no long-term consequences in follow-up studies of GnRH treatment .

Celebrate the "women with-in"
40 years x 12mths x $ x "arrgh" = " I want inclusion "
Will instructions specify how often to dispose of and replace with new? LOL

now i've heard my partner panic when she was out the night before and drunk and panicked thinking she'd left something in there over night and thinks she will get blood poisoning or shock or whatever it is that happens if you leave them in
I know it can be deadly if left unattended
I guess they wont have to worry about that either

that's the one toxic shock
well there you go male to female trans , never have to worry about toxic shock , or periods , or pregnancy
two things there that pretty much define being female
The sample consisted of 127 adolescents ( 79 boys, 48 girls ) , who were referred for GD in childhood ( < 12 years of age) and followed up in adolescence.
We found a link between the intensity of GD in childhood and persistence of GD, as well as a higher probability of persistence among natal girls. Psychological functioning and the quality of peer relations did not predict the persistence of childhood GD. Formerly nonsignificant (age at childhood assessment) and unstudied factors (a cognitive and/or affective cross-gender identification and a social role transition) were associated with the persistence of childhood GD, and varied among natal boys and girls.

Ok, it's time........It's time for me to go live on the moon or Mars, or some other planet.
Always sanitary products will remove the Venus symbol, historically used to represent the female sex, from its products to be inclusive of transgender and nonbinary customers.
It appears we can no longer live in a world of facts. Facts like only females menstruate.
When a menstrual pad box triggers (sorry I hate that word, but I can't imagine any other word that would be more appropriate right now)
enough people that a little symbol ruins their life.
On a very sick note, some men that have converted go so far as to use feminine products in a manner they weren't meant to be used.
Use your imagination... Will makers have to start putting anal instructions too?
It's time we have a reset button. Maybe Americans have too much time on their hands. This is even too cra cra for me.
