Oh, you can use it as a female as long as you know that you won’t be getting pregnant within the year or anything, and you have to actively be on birth control, or even a couple of kinds of birth control. I am totally okay with that. I think having kids is just a weird process anyway, add maternal PKU and birth defect risks into that and I PERSONALLY (I’m not speaking for anyone else) don’t think that the result (child/baby) is worth the trouble. I know that may seem really cold and mean, but hey, at least I know that now and I am taking the steps to avoid bringing a unwanted, disabled child into the world.
