A transgender woman has become the first to be able to breastfeed thanks to hormone therapy. However, the patient was forced to smuggle the drug from Canada because Domperidone is now banned in the United States due to the FDA's concerns about cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac arrest, and sudden death.
"We want to present our patients with the full range of reproductive choices and this is one step closer to that", Tamar Reisman, who co-authored the study along with Zil Goldstein, said in a phone interview Wednesday with The Washington Post.
A month into her treatment plan, she was producing "droplets" of milk and, three months in, she was producing about 8 ounces of milk per day, according to the study.
Some accused the trans woman of seeking her 15-minute of fame, to the detriment of her newborn child. Two weeks later, her partner gave birth and the baby's growth and development progressed well during six weeks of exclusive breastfeeding from the transgender mom, after which the parents began supplementing with formula. Wanting to ramp things up a little more, Reisman and Goldstein increased both her hormones and her domperidone intake.
The researchers added: "We believe that this is the first formal report in the medical literature of induced lactation in a transgender woman". The woman procured domperidone from Canada.
"At the time of this article submission, the baby is approaching six months old". However, the woman had to supplement breastfeeding with formula later one because she wasn't producing enough milk to fill the baby's appetite.
The contents of the milk are yet to be assessed, but the baby's good health was confirmed by a paediatrician. Colostrum is produced only at the last stage of pregnancy and during the first days postpartum, and its qualities are different from breast milk.
It's for this reason that Madeline Deutsch, a professor at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine and a transgender woman herself, chose not to pursue an experimental lactation treatment.
