Stopping Transgender: Yes. Fertility is likely to improve after stopping taking feminizing hormones. I worry about your choices you have or are making. Transitioning is more about your mental health than you body health. Are you taking to a supportive therapist? Do you have health care from an expert in this field. Taking the wrong hormones without monitoring your health is unwise. ...Read more
