Arvind Vaid, IVF expert at Indira IVF Hospital, said the patient, Sharmin Imam had earlier undergone diagnostic laparoscopy followed by laparotomy for severe endometriosis with severe bowel adhesions.

“We suggested her to undergo IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment with donor eggs. After transferring three embryos, the woman tested positive for pregnancy. Later, she underwent an ultrasound in Dhaka and was diagnosed with heterotrophic/heterogeneous pregnancy,” said Vaid.

Vaid said: “A timely diagnosis of heterogeneous pregnancy and intervention often results in successful outcome of the intrauterine foetus. Imam’s post-operative obstetric scan revealed a healthy intrauterine sac of seven weeks with cardiac activity of 146 beats per minute. Therefore, she was discharged two days after the surgery.” (IANS)

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
