Fertility preservation for transmasculine individuals: Online questionnaire

Questionnaire link: https://leicester.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/fertility-preservation-trans-men

My name is Greg Smith and I am a Trainee Clinical Psychologist at the University of Leicester.

I am conducting a study exploring how decisions are made about fertility preservation (also known as gamete storage or egg harvesting). It is hoped this will help transmasculine individuals to explore fertility options that fit with their gender identity and transition goals, as well as help healthcare services provide support around this. The link above includes further details about the study.

Participants are asked to complete an anonymous online questionnaire, which covers a range of topics and experiences based on the time a decision was made on fertility preservation uptake.

Participants must be aged 18 years or over, have been assigned female at birth whilst currently identifying as transmasculine, male or non-binary, and have made a decision on fertility preservation as part of their transition. The questionnaire should take 10-15 minutes to complete.

Full ethical approval has been granted by the University of Leicester, who are sponsoring this research along with support from an NHS Gender Identity Clinic. If you would like to know more about this study I can can be contacted via email (gs308@leicester.ac.uk).
