Sex Change - The sex-change procedure

male female opposite hormones

Sex change, also called transsexuality, is a procedure by which an individual of one sex is hormonally and surgically altered to attain the characteristics of the other sex. A male is changed into a female or a female into a male, complete with altered genitalia and other secondary sex characteristics.

It has been estimated that one male in every 20,000-30,000 wants to become female. The number of females who desire a sex change is not known, but it is estimated that for every female wishing a sex change there may be four males.

Transsexuals usually see themselves as being of the wrong sex early in life. They feel that they are trapped in the wrong body. Though they have sexual desires for persons of the same sex, it is not as a homosexual. A homosexual, one who desires a sexual relationship with someone of his or her own sex, is comfortable with his sex and does not desire to change. The transsexual views himself as a female (or herself as a male) and visualizes his female persona as being mated to a male. As children, transsexuals often will play with the toys of the opposite sex and sometimes will cross dress in clothing of the opposite sex. They also may be more comfortable socializing with members of the opposite sex inasmuch as they view themselves as having similar likes, dislikes, and desires.

Attempts to understand the underlying reasons for a person desiring a sex change have not been successful. Hormone studies have found them to have normal hormonal patterns for their sex. Examination of their childhood and home environment has shown that some transsexuals are from broken homes, others from homes with weak or ineffectual fathers and strong mothers, and still others from homes of loving and sharing parents. Genetic investigations also have found nothing. At least one investigator blames an abnormal prenatal neuroendocrine pattern, so the individual is born with the underlying transsexualism already imprinted. Such a hormonal upset might be caused by trauma to the mother, stress, use of drugs, or other reason while the developing infant was early in growth in the womb. This theory also remains to be proved.


Many potential transsexuals will do nothing about their seeming need to be of the opposite sex. They will marry, have a family, and attempt to fit in with society's expectations for a person of their sex. Secretly they may cross dress in clothing of the opposite sex's in private. Usually their families know nothing of this practice. A person who wears the clothing of the opposite sex is called a transvestite. A true transvestite enjoys cross dressing but has no inclination to undergo a sex change.

Other persons, however, have feelings too strong to subdue and they will eventually seek professional help in their conversion to the opposite sex. The first documented case of a complete conversion of a male to a female was that of Christine Jorgenson. Born a male, he underwent sex-change hormonal therapy and surgery to become a female in 1952. She later married. A number of medical facilities have since been established around the world and specialize in the complex process of transsexualism.

The first steps in the sex change process involve long sessions of counseling to ascertain that the individual is dedicated to changing sex, has thought it through thoroughly, and will be comfortable with his decision. Assuming the counseling provides the physician with information pointing to the resolute determination for a sex change, the patient will move on to the next level.

Hormone therapy, that is replacement of one's natural hormones with those of the opposite sex, is the beginning of the transsexual process. Women will receive androgens, male hormones, and males will be given estrogen and progesterone, the female hormones that are responsible for the secondary sex characteristics.

Male secondary sex characteristics include facial hair growth, larger muscle development, deep voice, and a heavier skeleton. Female characteristics include the development of breasts, a smoother, more rounded body as a result of a layer of fat that men do not have, a voice higher in pitch because of a smaller larynx and shorter vocal cords, lack of facial hair, and certain anatomic characteristics in the skeleton to facilitate childbirth.

Males will be given large doses of female hormones to override the effects of the androgens. Females will receive testosterone, the male hormone. Changes will become evident very soon after hormone therapy begins. The male will no longer grow whiskers and he may lose the characteristic hair growing on his chest. A woman receiving androgens will experience facial hair growth as well as changes in the pattern of fat deposits in her body. Voices in both sexes will change only minimally because the size of the larynx and the vocal cords are unchanged by hormones. The female who becomes male will have a voice uncharacteristically high for a male, and the male who becomes a female will have an unusually low-pitched voice for a woman. All of these observations are based on averages for males and females. Some small males or large females may seem more completely to change because they have the characteristics of the opposite sex to begin with.

The transsexual process is enhanced by surgical removal of the individual's genitalia and construction of genitals of the assumed sex. This is a difficult procedure in either sex, but more so in the female inasmuch as her genitalia are internal.

The surgical procedure on the male involves removal of the penis and the scrotum with the testes. A pseudo-vagina can be constructed from the skin of the penis. This is everted and sewn into a tube that is inserted into the man's body and sewn to the skin. Steps must be taken during the first few weeks following surgery to keep this makeshift vagina open. Construction of female breasts can be accomplished by using fat from the individual's body under the skin over the pectoral muscles. The woman also may wear strategically placed padding to simulate breast growth.

Removal of the scrotum and testes also removes the source of the male hormones, so the therapy with female hormones can assume dominance. The secondary sex characteristics of the male will be blunted. Facial hair will stop growing and body contours may change over time to more closely resemble those of the female. The newly created woman will be required to take female hormones for the remainder of her life. Her reconstructed vagina will enable her to have vaginal sex with a male, though of course she is not able to bear children.

Surgery on the female transsexual is more complex. The female reproductive organs are internal, so an incision is required to remove the ovaries, uterus, and vagina. A penis can be constructed and attached, but from that time on the new male must be careful to maintain strict hygiene to prevent bladder infection. Usually the woman's breasts also are removed, leaving a small scar. Male hormone therapy now will be dominant and the new male will begin to grow facial hair and perhaps hair on his chest. He will still be of slight build compared to the average male and will be unable to father children. An implanted penile prosthesis will enable him to attain an erection, and a scrotum containing prosthetic testes will complete the reconstruction and yield a superficially anatomically correct male.

My name is Randy and Im 42. I have stuggled for many years being a woman trapped in a mans body. My hole life i have been made fun of by friends and family because of this dissorber. Or thats what i call it. Over the years i have found out that you are better to be yourself and not allow what other people think of you control who you truely are. We dont ask to be this way and we dont do it to imbarris anyone. We are just like everyone else just born in the wrong body.

Before you think you need a sex change, at least wait for puberty to end. During your teens you will have mood swings and these may make you think something that isn't exactly what you want, is the right move. Experience you bodies real use before changing it completely. (e.g. Wait to have sex first!)

I was born as male now i a 37 years old. The desire began to being a female when i was 13 years old i was interested to accompant with females and i use to prefer their likes and dislikes. After some time i was feeling uneasyness with male outfits so i started wearing female outfits privately. i was confuse that what i am doing is right or wrong but i feel comfort with my desires, i was curious to know about my desire ( changing of sex male to female ) is possible through medical science but i was unkown about this sites. yesterday only i typed my desire in google i show me many of examples regarding my desire.

Till now i weat female outfits privately but i don't want to continue i want to introduce myself as female i can't tolarate anymore this situation. i want to be female and i want to marry a with a handsome male. let me know the total cost and time period. one more thing is the female harmones available in the market for the primary changes let me know.

I am a tomboy and when shoping i do tend to stare more at the boys clothes and think, I want my life as a boy. But i really dont know much and how much it will cost. I do hint to my pearents at times but they think im joking. And i am affraid of comments like 'but why whould you do that? God made you the way you are' But at that all i think is 'Yes God made you the way you are, He set you a path in life and he created you but have you ever thought god may of made you Transexual?

To all of the boys who want to be girls, and the girls that want to be boys:



My heart aches for you. It pains me to see your confusion and struggle in a world that doesn't quite understand you. I know what it feels like to want to be of the opposite sex, to want to be a male and look in the mirror without accepting what I see. To hate myself and feel weak just because I'm a girl. I know what it's like to buy male clothes and hang out with the guys because I feel more accepted and comfortable.



What helped me, what took away my depression, confusion and pain was one man that said "I have loved you with an everlasting love". one man that took the time to see into my heart and say "you are a beautiful woman, I have created you a woman, and I love you as you are". Through Jesus I found my Creator that made me the woman I am, and began to see that it wasn't a shame to be a woman, that I can be strong, bold, beautiful and celebrate the woman I was born. I found my identity in Christ. As he loved me through my confusion, he loves you. Those who are crying for help, this is the best solution. Please write me. amapolagirl@gmail.com

You also can not avoid scarring. For female to male: you will have major scars from the mastectomy. They also skin draft from arm and thigh to do the lower changes. These scars are very obvious. Don't know so much about male to female, but I do know the world is cruel...

For the few small minded posters who are claiming these people are going to be freaks, worry about yourself. Until you're in their shoes..or I should say their body, go on with your content lives and leave them be. What they're going through and doing has nothing to do with you. Good for you that you're content in the body you have. But not everyone is that fortunate. Anyway I have a very dear friend of mine who is about to start the reassignement therapy to go from female to male and I'm one of her supporters. I see the heartache and turmoil she deals with all the time and I really feel that sometimes you have to correct nature's cruel mistakes and do what's right for you. I mean for those who are being closed minded, if you had some kind of damage or deformity on your body, you'd want to get it fixed, this is no different, just more complex and extensive. Well, my heart goes out to you all and I truly wish you the best! I hope you find your happiness and get the bodies to reflect who you are inside. :)

I've feeling like a male since I was 12 years of age. It was during the summer then, when I started pretending to be a boy and I felt so comfortable with it. I respected myself more and I was so much happier with myself.



I felt beautiful, strong and non suicidal. I loved deepening my voice more than it already was. And in the beginning I wasn't so girly as far as wanting to look feminine & I hated the tom boy look. I've tried out females and I also hated that. I've come to a realization that I am a gay man stuck in a straight woman's body. This is so because straight men are never attractive to me, only gay men are, and I fall deeper in love with them.



I have more wants of wanting to penetrate a man than being penetrated. And I can hardly recognize my birthname. I have to dress like a female but not girly because of my family, they're strict and are against it. And when I move, I plan on getting therapy for this to move on to the next level.



I am 16yrs old going onto 17. Most people have told me it was just a phase, and I know it's not. One conseulor assumed that I wasn't ready until I've explained to her everything that I'm feeling -- how it depresses me to be a female, that I do not wish to be. I'm willing to have a surrogant mother or adopt children, even put my eggs up to freeze and have them fertilize with my male significant other.



I hate bras, they make me feel so uncomfortable & I'm in desperate need to bind my breasts although they aren't big, which makes me very happy. I always imagine that I have no breasts and posture myself like a man. My shoulders are broad, I'd love it more if they were broader and my throat had gotten bigger than it already is, it kind of looks like an Adam's apple and I'd love for my voice to be deeper than it already is. I don't have a feminine voice, I pitch it in public, unless I'm with friends and family.



I have the different types of haircuts/hairstyles I'd love to have. I have the name picked out since I was 12, I still want that name. And I have the excitement of wearing boxerbriefs and the perfect size for my penis. Yes, I'm willing to go through side effects and a scar on my arm to make the desired penis I've wanted, I plan on tatting that up anyway. As time goes by, I become more masculine and in desperate need of becoming a man, and it makes me hate looking in the mirror to see a female. But even at times, I tend to look like a male in the face and other times I look like a female, because of my throat, shoulder and jaw. I'd love for my jaw to become larger and defined and to removed this fat from my face that makes me feminine looking.



I just want all of this to go away, that's my true happiness. A friend has asked me if I could make one wish, what would it be other than being a man. My answer? - I told him, there is nothing else I could possibly wish for more than being the man whom I've been longing to be. And his response was: you really do want to become a man.

I'm 13 almost 14 and I'm a guy in a girls body, so to speak. When I was young I was a big tomboy; I never liked barbies, bratz, etc.
I don't even really like shopping for clothes now, and I absolutely HATE SKIRTS.
When I go to sleep I have dreams about me being a man and "going out" with a woman. I have never told ANYONE about these feelings.
I still like guys and everything, but I don't think any guy would look at me, because I am chubby and I'm not very pretty.
(This might sound sexist, but I don't mean it that way):
I think girls have more of an ability to look on the inside of a person, rather than just the looks. Maybe it is just me being judgemental, but guys seem like the first thing they look at is looks, THEN personality. It has been like that for me.
I am trying to stay a healthy weight and everything and (this next bit will sound really stupid, just a warning) when I've finished fully growing I'll do a weight-loss thing. I dream of being a man, but to be honest, I don't want to spend $50,000 on something that I'm not completely sure of and something that is irreversible.
So, my main message:
All of you girls like me who think they want to be a guy, look in the mirror. Firstly, see yourself as a beautiful person. If you TRULY see yourself as a guy, then talk with your parents.
AND FOR GUYS WHO WANT TO BE A GIRL:
Look through this page.. so many girls want to have your body. You were born a boy and you can produce sperm and everything. If YOU look in the mirror and see yourself truly as a girl, then you also have a talk with your parents.

To help you see your true beauty, try doing this every morning when you wake up:
Look in the mirror and look into your own eyes and very clearly say, "I am a beautiful person, inside and out. No one can decide that for me."
(It is slowly working for me)

Thanks everyone for taking the time to read my extra-long comment. I hope my tip at the end will help you on your way to greatness! (half-quote from Harry Potter 1 ;)

I'm 14 yr's old and Imma gurl. I have the strongest desire to become a guy and sometimes I forget I'm a girl so when I remember I am I'm disappointed to look down and see a girls body. I hate my body because it doesn't look good with boy cloths though I wear them in both underwear and outerwear. What bothers me is that I'm in love with my best friends, Mickey Mouse (nickname) and Baby-K (nickname) but I know they don't like me like that because I'm a girl. But I know they would love me if I was a boy. I want a sex-change because I want to be a boy. My attitube and thoughts are very much like a guys and I would prefer to be a boy but I don't know how my family or friends would react. :( If I ever get enough money I'm getting the surgrey and living my life the way I want without judgement.

I'm Ashton.
I'm 15 and I'm gonna be a guy.
I'm not a lesbian because personally I don't like gay people (gay guys, lesbians are actually cool), I'm transgender which means my views on homosexuality can completely contradict with what most people think being transgender is because I'm not gay.
And that gay guy who think we're becoming freaks needs to shut up.
Cause YOU'RE a freak get it chopped off or don't, I'm tired of gay guys at least change into the opposite sex because liking the same sex is grosser than being transgender.
And for all the other people who are saying stuff like that gay guy, this is to you too because until you've lived like this and gone through the mental and emotional struggle these people have had to go through, you have no idea what you're talking about and you sound like a retard, go read a book, because you're uneducated.
Being transgender is hard, and I was surprised when my family and ALL of my friends accepted it, I think they always knew though. :)
I don't look like a girl mostly so if I get the change I don't think it'd be too drastic except you know, I'd have a penis.
Most of my friends and family refer to me as a guy, I am mistaken for a guy everyday.
Straight girls date me knowing what I am, if you aren't afraid to come out you never know what might happen.
If you keep how you feel inside it doesn't work, just do you what you know you need to because that worked out better for me.
I'm so much happier, I'm not alone, I still have my family, all my friends, and a girlfriend who isn't stuck up or uneducated and actually gets me and doesn't care.
If you do what you feel like you need to do, I promise all you guys will be happier.

im a girl but trapped in a boy's body.. im very different with the other guys. i can't fight. i don't know why when i'm a baby i think im a girl. i want to be a girl because i had a compability problems. i use my secondary account, they always appriciate me. but i don't want to leave my original gender, cuz i want to be a great leader. i don't fight, i don't drunk, i don't smoking.



I'm very confused with myself. my apperance look like a normal girl, i don't look like a real normal boy. i have whiter skin, i have smaller larynx, my voice was pitcher. i don't know why i always think like a girl. i always confused what is my gender...



Please... i want to be a girl. if you all know what's the black magic to be a girl, i would like to hear! i can't stop my girly mind (i'm trying to stop it but it still can't, but i not like a gay) :)

Hello,

My name is Tyler, Im 17 years old and for the past 16 years I have woken up everyday and gone to sleep everynight with the same thing on my mind that I want to be a girl. ever since I was about two and I use to wander around the house in my mothers heels. Im in High School now and dealing with gender identity disorder is not easy. I want to become a female very badly by the time I do graduate High School in about a year and a half, but Im low on money (about $10,000 short). Its not easy, and I know for everyone else your struggles are just as hard, thats why we must all take the time time to hear everyones story so we know were not alone! its a great feeling to know there are other people out there that are going through the same thing as some of us. I have wanted to be a female for 16 years, I like guys (Ive actually had a true love for about 2 1/2 years now). I have amazing friends and family who except me for who I am. My looks are not what I desire and I want to change that as soon as I can! Im a 6'3 220 pound guy, within the next year and a half I want to be a beautiful 6'3 220 pound girl and I think I can do it...and I know so many of u can to, because ur not alone!!!!!!! if anyone wants to talk to me, id love to talk to u about ur problems u can e-mail me at clarinetcookiemonster@yahoo.com. Love u all!!!!!

okay im 15 soon to be 16 in dec. ive always felt like i was a man, ive tlkaed an dressed like one. i will tell you now, one of my female friends is slowly going through this process. she is 17 an shes been going through counseling since she was 13, she says its a long process an lots of people try to talk to you about what might happen, an you might not turn out to be what you whated to be. you take lots of pills. [which she said isnt a problem] and im not exact on how much it costs. but she said so far that she knows its over thousands and thousands of dollars. but its worth it. and to respond to [allie] i understand when you say u hate bein a girl because personally pierods r just plan out nasty [depo shot] and yes its kinda hard to tell ur parents her parents r high class know it all. but when she told her parents they were actually okay with it. so you never know what they might say. an if they say no to what you want then they really dnt support you. they might love you but they dnt want you to be a disgrace to the family [in some cases] all i can say is that om 100% all the way with trans. an hope for the best of ya'll

I can honestly say I dont know what I am or who I am. Ive always felt feminin and have wanted to be a girl but at the same time I enjoy being a guy. I crossdress but not for any sexuall reasons, I do it cause it feels normall and right to me. How do I find out who or what I am?? Am I just a feminin guy or is there something else more to me? I just some sort of answer cause this is tearing me up all inside and confuses me alot. Alot of the time I tend to push these feelings aside cause well alot of people I know even my family wouldnt understand but in my room when im alone ill dress up in womens clothing and feel happy, comfortable and wishing I never have to take them off and when I do I hate it. As I said before I do not hate being male but if I could pick I would prefer to be female. If any one can help email me, would be nice to be able to talk to some one who is knowledgable in this and can really help.

I am seventeen and I think I might want to become a guy. Every time I look in the mirror I dream of how my body would look like if I were a guy. When I am out shopping I find myself standing at the guys department nearly every time. I few years ago, I was in a group in school who were to decide themes on school parties and somehow a party where boys dress up as girls and girls dress up as boys always was suggested by me.

I think there is nothing wrong with being either gay or bi, transexual or whatever. And I don't think others, who don't understand, have a right to speak in the matter. You are who you are. But I wonder, that if I were to be in a guys body, just how scarred would my body be.. would it be worth it I mean...

please email me if you want to talk

My name is Klaus Scholessinger. That is the name I go by. I am a boy trapped in a girl's body. I'm sitting here, reading these comments and I realize that I'm very much the same as all of you. I have always hated being a girl, hated the stereotypes. I have always gotten along with guys in a buddy-buddy way. And I have had many girls tell me they'd date me if I was a boy. Reading this has given me the courage to start the process. And I would like to just add a comment to amapolagirl. Obviously, you were meant to be a girl. If you can reconcile yourself with it, then you were meant to be one. But some of us have realized that religion only goes so far. We were meant to be the opposite sex. We cannot help what vessels our souls were born into. So we have to change them. Good luck everyone!

Okay, so you want to become a freak? This precedure does not turn you into the opposite sex. You have implants and hormones and injections etc that are not really yours.



The more horrifying reality is waking up and realizing that you are now neither a man or a woman and being stuck like that.

The primary male hormone, testosterone is mainly produced by the testes. Testosterone levels peak levels during adolescence and the early twenties. After the age 30, a man’s testosterone levels drop by about 1% each year. Although subtle at first, the symptoms of decreased testosterone become increasingly evident by the time a man reaches his mid forties.

What the crap? Why do you want to change what YOU are? You say you're a male stuck in a female's body, and vice versa, but the thing is God made you for a reason. I am in so much shock! What have the world come to?

The majority of you guys are 12 - 18. You haven't even began living your life, so how can you say that you wish to be the opposite sex? Honestly, this is ridiculous. Some of you say you're tormented at school, and that's why you want to change. Some of you said you hate the way you're shaped. Well, if that's the case, then you do something productive, and wasting $50,000 is far from productivity.

You should love who you are, and how you look. If classmates say you're ugly, then it's their fault they don't see your beauty. If you're not shaped the same as the male or female on TV, then that doesn't mean you're ugly, or unloved, and it darn sure doesn't mean you become the opposite sex. Again, God created you for a reason; in his image. Don't hate yourself; don't feel insecure about yourself; don't wanna change YOURSELF.

I know you might say that I cannot say this because I don't understand. But I understand completely. I've been insecure. I've been to the point to where I hated myself because others disliked my appearance. That wasn't the signal for me to waste money to become the opposite sex. That just meant that I find "real" friends (that will love me). It meant that I figure out a way to began loving myself.

Wanna know a secret? Every morning, when I wake up, I look in the mirror and I tell myself I'm beautiful; even if I hadn't yet washed my face, brushed my hair, or brushed my teeth. I've learned to grow fond of myself. You should do the same. Now, not all of my insecurity is gone, but my self confidence has evolved. I'm not saying it's not going to be easy, and it won't happen over night, but if you have faith in yourself then others will have faith in you.

If you wanna discuss it more, than you can email me. I'm be sure to email you with positive feedback, but...

YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE; EMBRACE IT! :)

So many, I'm rather surprised. Well to start all of you off, don't listen to those who bash you or say you'll never be happy because you'll still be what you were born as or any of that bull. I don't believe in God either, If I meet the man in the afterlife, power to him, send me to hell for it...It's gladly taken.

As far as your first step, it's to do a little research. Look in your area for a Transsexual Therapist. They'll run you through AT LEAST six months of therapy, maybe even some group where others like us will be, after that it's hormones. They'll tell you a general place to go, between you and your new found friends from Group. After that, you NEED two Psychiatrists in the US to write up a letter of approval and to send you through a test. For a year, live as the opposite gender. After that, they'll point you towards SRS, which is Sex Reassignment Surgery. FTM or MTF, either way. Other countries such as Thailand have it for cheaper then most other countries, but it can be dangerous. Make sure you trust the doctors and see their work.

It does take a lot of money, I've seen estimates of 50,000$ for MTF and around 25,000$ for FTM. Remember, you still have hormone therapy for the rest of your life too.

Make sure it's what you want.
And don't listen to those who pull you down.

It will take YEARS to complete your change, but don't sweat it. It comes little by little and it's worth the wait. There was something else I wanted to say...

I'll think of it later.
Just take care of yourself..
Oh Jobs, if I remember correctly, it's illegal for them to indiscriminate so you might want to look up on that in your area...
I'm in the US. I'm at the beginning of this process, hope to see you all at the end.

In the last thousand years of the earth and mankind, the evil one will be thrown into a pit and have no interaction with humans whatsoever. After, the evil one must be set free to finish off the old earth. During the thousand years, the depravity of man without the evil one will surpass any evil ever thought of. Even with Jesus ruling and reigning from the throne floating a little above the earth, before settling to the new heavens and new earth, after The Great White Throne Judgement, sin will be dealt with immediately by Jesus, with whatever methods are used to punish and not mentioned, man, in total depravity, will sin before Jesus knowingly rejecting His authority with punishment instantaneously. To show that ultimately, the evil one has already been conquered 2000 years ago, defeated and man needs little provocation to turn into a monster. To look at these pictures in researching a movie for the presence of any truth whatever, it is amazing what the mind can accomplish. God calls homosexuality an abomination. It is learned behavior. No comments please, I know what learned behavior is. Cross addiction to all forms of drugs and alcohol of all types. Both street and pharmaceutical issue, the desire was taken away by God after I looked in a mirror one day and I saw my utter depravity and realized my need for a Saviour. My salvation took place over a period of time. I did not have the ultimate defining moment as some others others have. God has so blessed me with taking the desire for these away when realizing I could not stop them or quit them myself, instantly, never to go back. These were no different than homosexuality, break one command, break them all. Learned behavior, yet, with knees bowed I asked and received with a pure heart. Please don't write to me but talk to God through Jesus. There are so many times he has saved my life physically, which I know about, much less the un-countless times I don't. My life was changed forever, yours can be if you so desire.

to all of those girls trapped inside male bodies, do not wait too long you will regret as I did all those years, start by getting falsies and feel your way into womanhood,I have been using spirotone 100 one a day only no more. if you do you will not get there any faster you will only damage your liver.then after one year you wont have any body hair and your facial hair will be so scarce that you will only need a good pair of tweezers and the pleasure of just be called miss may I help you. I live as woman full time thanks and get a medical opinion before you use any hormones. yours Maurici

I'm Catherine; legal name, Ryan.

I'm fifteen. I've had these feelings for the longest of times; always I would feel more inclined to those things women like, but society has always pushed me towards acting like the man I was ( or wasn't, mind you ) born as. But recently I've decided to take the initiative to come out and tell my parents of this, and they were very accepting. So, to any reading this: Make sure you know your parents before you tell them. Make sure they'll be okay with this. They may want to make you happy, but sometimes they want to make you happy in their way.

I'm sorry but this was written terribly and the first part was actualy offensive to trans people. "views -him-self as female" Why are you using "him"? If the individual is female why are you calling her a he? I'm sorry but you really don't seem to know a lot about the mental elements of being trans..

My name is Amanda. I am 49 and have been on hormone theropy for over a year now.....
Some advice for the younger M-2-Fs, If at all possible start transition as early as possible...Also try and start Hormone theropy as early as you can....If nothing else, try and get put on hormone blockers, to stop the onset of puberty....F-2-Ms this goes for you as well....This will stop breast growth and prevent the start of menstration cycles....
Basically you will be stuck in the pre adolesant stage untill the start of hormone treatment....
M-2-F your breast development and ability to pass will be much better starting younger....
But remember...you loose your ability to have children....Inly option for this in the future is adoption....And remember socity has not grown up enough to fully accept us.....We still suffer at the hands of them who dont understand....
Join support groups near you, and on line....Becareful of the online groups some are unsafe...and never give out your address or phone number....Email is ok...you can delete that....Their are always them who want to harrass you.

Me and my partner are talking to universitys about transsexualism, we are also trying to open a mobile home park for the trans community....somplace where we can be safe and be ourseves....
If anyone has questions about transition or the park...Feel free to contact us.....
we do screen all our emails, and you should to as well....
Safty is one of the most important things you can do when going into transition.....
Be safe...Be happy, and be yourself....

Hellohello. I'm Elizabeth, 15, female. I've always seen my self as one of the guys. Never really been into the whole female thing. I've always wanted to be a guy. I've tried my best to dress like a guy and hide it from my parents because my grandmother and not so much my mum are hard on me about being a girl and "lady like" and my step-dad that died almost 5 years ago had always raised me like a male sense I was born. And I've always played and hung out with the guys. I've wished to be male sense I was 12. And playing dress up I would always be the male. I've wished to be a bisexual guy sense I was 12. There is nothing is this world that would make me happier, well besides finding love. But the only people that know about me would be my closest friends (5 of them, I have trust issues) and my uncle knows. But, I see myself as a guy in a few years. I want to be a guy now living a teenage guy life. But, I can't. So I really don't know what to do.

This is to all transsexuals that are in their teens or younger. It is much easier for you now to be accepted than it was for me when I was your age. If you have the chance and the insurance coverage , I suggest you see a dr to make sure that your feelings are pure ,and that you know without a shadow of a doubt that you want to become the opposite sex ! I knew what I was at the age of five, but back then , if something like that was even brought up , you probably had a good chance of being locked up somewhere heavily sedated ! All my life has been very painful and loaded with spells of deep depression ! To be honest with you , I don't know how I made it this far ! I plan on transitioning in about 1 year from now. I never got to enjoy my life as the real me ! Don't put the way you feel off because someone else doesn't understand ,it is your life to live ,nobody elses. I hate to see others end up like me , not being able to spend those special years growing up as the wrong gender !

Simply because you feel you were born in the wrong body doesn't make that the case. Regardless of how you change your body and identify, you will always be what you were born. So if you are a guy who becomes a girl and dates guys, you're still attracted to the same sex; it's just not as apparent, because you no longer appear as what you are, only as what you feel. However, if that makes it easier for some to handle who they are, more power to you. Just don't expet others to think it's ok, and certainly don't bash homosexuals for doing exactly what you are doing only on their natural bodies. Thanks and God Bless.

I was born male but changed my sex to female in Thailand last year. The operation may be a little painful but I felt happier ever since. For those who desire a complete change, I would suggest going to Thailand. Those surgeons are experts as they have performed this kind of operation routinely. Its better to start young to look more female. I went for SR when I was 20.

Friends,

I have been involved with the T community for 20 years as a M2F trans person. Although I am not having the surgery etc. I have similar feelings as you and today is the best time in history to deal with this complicated issue. Do yourselves a favor and check out International Foundation of Gender Education or IFGE. Type IFGE into your address bar and begin your exploration. This is a great resource for the facts and any information for all gender variant folks. Call or email them, subscribe to their Tapestry mag and you will get the answers you are looking for. The sex change procedure is very serious and you really need to explore this carefully. Once performed it can never be undone. The costs right now when it's all said and done is an easy $50,000or more for everything, so start saving. Again, get the facts at IFGE, they can provide you information for free as well as counselors trained in this stuff.

I wish you all the best and whatever you do, do NOT let people like "Charlotte" burden you with their BS, it's their problem not yours so pay them no attention.

Good luck,

Everybody that wants to change you just have to do it and be happy with who you are no matter what people do or think of you. I have been living as a woman since I was 18 and everyone knows how much happier I hve been in the last ten years. The last step to womanhood is the removal of my genitelia. I have a loving man and a good job so just be patient and everything will be just fine.

What can I say that hasn't already been said. I am a 26yrs old male, but ever since I was 12yrs old I've always admired a females life. They have a wider variety of clothes they can wear. They are so slim and small. They can unleash their emotions at anytime w/out fear of being told "Be a Man". I've wished upon the stars every night, thrown coins in wishing well and made a wish on a birthday cake. I even went to Disney World (wear wishes come true) and wished on their stars, but I'm still not a girl. There really isn't any part of being a girl that I dislike. I would happily take the good w/ the bad if it was possible. I really want to be a girl more than anything in this world. However, after reading everyon'e comments and doing research that a M to F procedure would mean that I wouldn't be able to bear childen or get my monthly visitor, I've decided that if I can't be a girl fully, than I'm going to have to continue my life as a depressed guy who will hopefully get a miracle and will just magically wake up one morning in a girls body. I will continue to wish for that miracle and I wish everyone that feels the same way I do ALL the luck in the world.

I'm maybe the lucky one that has been trough the changes and today I'm a happy girl even though I was born male.



I love my hormones and I'm not worried at all that I will need to take them all my life as people with diabetes has to do the same.



So if you feel you should become girl or boy, male or female go for it because the main goal in your life should be that you're happy with yourself.

your opening remarks are some what inaccurate. Most transexuals do not have the desire to be with someone of their own sex. It is a misconception that men want to be with other men so they want a sex change to do so although that is sometimes the case. Most transexual males are attracted to women and want to be a woman. They will still be attracted to women after they change, so in a twisted way, they are homo sexual in that it would make them lesbian.

I've read all the comments here and my heart goes out to you because you feel that you were born in the wrong body. Please don't be angry at me for saying my opiniion but no matter what you, say or take, you will never be the opposite of what you are. This has nothing to do with religion by it's just the way things are. I am an African American and will always be. I DON'T WANT TO BE WHITE. I'm just using myself as anaology. No matter what I did, (ie: like Michael Jackson) I can never be a white woman. No skin bleaching, nose job, hair straightening or blue contacts will ever make me white. So I say the same to you that suffering with accepting how you were born. You can get your penis cut off, your vagina sewn up, take hormones, get breasts added and removed. IT WILL NEVER MAKE YOU SOMETHING THAT YOU WERE NEVER BORN INTO. I'm sorry if I'm hurting your feelings because that is not my intention. I just think that you need to love yourself and the body you were given because the reality is that, when you become the opposite sex, you body still won't funtion like the opposite sex. You won't have a period or be able to have a baby if you are MTF and you won't be able to fertilize the egg or create sperm if you are FTM. So your most intimate/sexual relationships will never be like they are supposed to be and that's whether you want children or not. Men and women are diffrent. I think you should loveo yourself and who you are and accept the body you were born with. The other thing that the article did not tell you is that there is a very high suicide rate among people who actually go through with the sex change, esp the men, because the surgery is irreversable.

I'm mentally female and have been for as long as I've lived, or can remember. I'm at the point where I can't stand being in a male body anymore. What people say and how I'm treated is just horrible. I don't want to deal with it anymore and I want to change to a body I'm happy in. Nobody around me supports me. My family loaths the idea as do many others. I have two very close people who support me, but it's hard with how many people like to torment others.

I have always felt really feminine and wanted to be a girl. The only problem is telling those around me (esp. my family) that I want a sex change. I'm 26 now but I think in the near future my dream may come true.

Some of your info is not accurate. MTF transsexuals will still have facial hair even on the hormones. The only way to remove it is laser treatments or electralysis

I have wanted to be a man for as long as I can remember. I am now 56 & I feel like my chances are getting slim. It's so hard for me because I am married with 7 children. I have not yet told anyone the way I am feeling, and this is because I am scared of the way they may act. Imagine; I have children, they will then have 2 Fathers and then I am risking them of getting a "slaging" at school. It's not fair on them. My youngest is 10. I put myself through this for them. But maybe now it's time for me to be selfish and do what I want for once in a while. If only there was a way I could let them know without hurting them. I need help on what to do. HELP!?

I question the statements in the article that facial hair will stop growing after either taking female hormones or removal of the testes. It has been well established that male facial hair will NOT stop growing in those circumstances, unless the treatment has been started before the age of puberty. Instead, it is necessary that the prospective male-to-female patient remove the hair by electrolysis or laser to prevent growth.

this information has helped me.... i appreciate it. i hope over time ... sometime soon ... they'll find out how to install ovaries. i want to bear children after my sex change from male to female. i am 17 i live in Broken Arrow. i sat here and thought if i don't have the procedure i will live miserably and be depressed all my life i need this change I'm uncomfortable in this body. i resort to gay men for sexual needs... and relationships but I'm not a guy... except in body if i do get it done most guys might want children so they might not want me since I'm sterile or they might not love me for once being in a male body .. they may think strange of it... last resort was suicide and the only reason i don't want that is i don't want to hurt all around me ... i don't want to rune lives for my death ... i want to help people in life... that's my goal i want to be a psychologist. i first need self help I'm aware of that but I'm determined and i also came to realize true love wont leave me if i was a male at once or if i couldn't bare children. i will go through with the change. it may take a while because of finance but i will take it one step at a time.

Well excuse me for being born in the wrong body and wanting to be happy...gosh, you may not be intending to be mean, but you sure sound like it. It's not stupid if it keeps you from going crazy, now is it?

I've made up my mind, I'm going through with it and I've figured out my problems...so forget about it...message directed to "Lanny".--.--"
