The effects of gender transitioning, particularly the effects of testosterone exposure in transgender men, on the oocyte and embryo development are largely unknown. Based on prior studies suggesting that the extracellular RNAs secreted by the ovarian follicle cells reflect the oocyte and embryo biological state, the investigators propose to use these extracellular RNAs to gain insights into the effects of testosterone exposure in transgender men on their oocyte and embryo without impacting the clinical IVF process.
