I am a female but I've had male friend with the same question. The answer is the same for both sexes. When I received my first my kidney in 97 the wait time before was recommended before trying was something like 2 or 3yrs but after you get the ok you must not wait. They don't bother to tell anyone until it is too late but those drugs make both sexes sterile over time. I went to the transplant games years ago and I met patients there whom had healthy kids afterwards.
All of my friends unfortunately waited until after they finished college and by then it was too late. However press them or an answer because the time frame may have been shorten to try.View Thread
This will be my second time around in five years and things are a bit different. They have requested a bladder test before they can vote on my status to list me. I assume this test will be uncomfortable but will it hurt then or afterwards? Is there anything I should look for as a potential problem afterwards?View Thread
If you chemically straighten your hair or chemically color you hair I would talk with my hair dresser/stylist about stopping and the best way to transition your hair to it natural state. I stopped chemically straightening my hair that did the trick last time. I also cut off all the old hair with that in it. There are ways to do this over time that won't be such a shock to you in the mirror and you can be emotionally prepared to let it go.View Thread
