A few years ago a trans female in Nova Scotia was having abdominal pains, she went for a check up and her doctor found out that she had "a small uterus and she could feel multiple polyps". How much years testosterone use has had on harming her uterus and creating those polyps (pcos?) is unknown. But there is enough in the medical literature to safely assume a clear correlation between her female troubles and her injecting high quantities of testosterone. The treatment for her issues was estrogen therapy, which she out right refused, her only other option was to have a hysterectomy. She apparently had other female relatives, including her mother who have had trouble with their "female parts", which makes me wonder was this family history disclosed to the doctors who originally began her on testosterone. Were that info known, I find it difficult to believe ANY doctor could ethically prescribe testosterone to a female who has a family history of uterine trouble when testosterone can increase the risk of uterine/ovarian issues in women who have no family history at all.
She received a hysto, which her medical insurance did not cover since she could have had proper non invasive surgery treatment with the use of estrogen therapy. After getting a bill for $3400 dollars for the surgery she refused to pay and has since filed a Human Rights Violation. This is not only outlandish, it is an abuse of the time, money and energy that Human Rights groups could be spending on those truly in need! She had an option, something which millions that Human Rights groups seek to help, have none. And it is these demands for "special rights" by the Trans Politic that so often get attributed to gay and lesbians when we fight for EQUAL rights! There are countless medical issues that millions may prefer but instead must settle for a less than satisfying treatment because their insurance doesnt cover them. Some of us ourselves have had to make these same difficult choices or know loves ones who have. It isnt fair, but we make the most of it without abusing systems working to stop human trafficking or halt the gutting of womens rights etc.
Regardless of whatever distress this young woman may feel about her body, she has NO right to distress Human Rights systems with her angry selfishness.
