No they do not. Women get their periods because we have internal female organs (ovaries, fallopian tubes, etc). When a male to female transexual gets an operation, there are no internal female organs that are built. The only thing that is built is a vagina that you can see from the outside. So since they do not have ovaries, etc. they cannot get their periods.
