Should requests for donor insemination on social grounds be expanded to transsexuals?

Donor insemination may provide an answer to transsexuals with female partners who have a wish for a child. Although the follow-up on children born in the context of these families is non-existent and the follow-up on transsexuals after sex reassignment surgery (SRS) is limited, fertility centres might consider accepting the requests of transsexuals with a female partner. Between 1997 and 2001, nine couples presented themselves at the Centre for Reproductive Medicine of the Dutch-speaking Brussels Free University, of whom five couples were accepted. Nevertheless, some caution is called for because transsexualism is socially not accepted. Moreover, transsexualism is still considered to be psychiatric condition. The following recommendations should be taken in consideration. Treatment should be limited to female-to-male transsexuals with a female partner. A multidisciplinary team of specialists should carry out the diagnosis for gender identity. Developmental problems of the gender-disordered child might interfere with socio-economic, psychological and emotional stability in adulthood. The period of sex reassignment should be nearly completed.
