I want to be a girl. How can this happen?

I'm a 13 year old boy and for a few years now I've felt like I'm supposed to be a girl but I don't know how. Is there any way that I can be a girl and also gain the ability to give birth because I want to feel like the person who I've always wanted to be. Please let me know.

Hi - you have asked this question a number of times now. If you are truly experiencing gender dysphoria, the only solution begins by talking to your parents. After that, you can be evaluated by medical professionals - both physically and mentally - to determine the correct next steps for you. Since you are under the age of 18, you will need your parents' permission (and probably their medical insurance coverage) to be evaluated.

At this time, there is no medical technology that will allow a person born with male reproductive organs to give birth.
