What to Know About Transgender Medical Transitioning: Male to Female

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

According to center4research- The focus of this article is medical transitioning from male to female, the process by which transgender individuals change the way they look so that their physical characteristics match the gender they feel. [2] Transgender is defined as individuals whose social or psychological gender identity is different than their sex assigned at birth. [2]

Transitioning isn’t necessarily medical. It can involve changing one’s name or one’s pronouns. It can involve changing the way one dresses.  Medical transitioning can involve medical treatments (hormones) and can involve surgery. Experts agree that there is not one “right” way to transition.  Transitioning can involve any combination of these changes or it can be any change that allows someone to more comfortably present to the world. [2] What is most important is that someone’s transition process reflects their needs and what works best for them and their body. [1] While there are many social ways to transition, such as coming out to friends, using different pronouns, or using a different name, this article will specifically examine the medical treatment options in the male to female transition process. 

For someone considering medical transitioning, it is important to know the risks that are associated with specific medical treatments and to decide if the likely benefits outweigh those risks. It is essential to realize that many aspects of this medical transition can be very expensive, so make sure to find out what will or will not be covered by insurance. The goal of this article is to provide information to help individuals make an informed choice, choosing the safest options that will provide the most benefit.

Before beginning transgender transitional medical treatment, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) recommends meeting with a mental health professional for a gender dysphoria diagnosis and psychotherapy. [1] According to the American Psychiatric Association, a gender dysphoria diagnosis is when a person’s physical or assigned gender does not match the gender they feel. [23]  Most doctors will not offer most medical transitioning options unless the individual has this diagnosis. However, some medical procedures, such as facial feminization surgery or laser hair removal, do not require meeting with a mental health professional beforehand.

After receiving a gender dysphoria diagnosis, one can consider whether or not to choose hormone therapy. If a person chooses hormone therapy, it is usually followed by a period of living publicly as a trans man or woman before major surgeries are performed (this is called the Real-Life Test and it will be discussed later in the article). [3]  Hormone therapy is usually recommended prior to most types of surgery. [1]

Hormones, surgery, regret: I was a transgender woman for 8 years — time I can’t get back

At first I was giddy for the fresh start. But hormones and sex change genital surgery couldn’t solve the underlying issues driving my gender dysphoria.

They are all very heavy topics and difficult to comprehend. I have a very good friend who has a transgendered family member so I know what it is like up close and personal. I have to say there are mental health issues on all sides. Parents think they are doing the right thing based on their own brainwashing and programming to be “accepting” and love is love, and be who you wanna be crap without ever considering the monstrous act they are committing. Show me one transgender that meditates alone with nothing for 30 minutes. NOPE they don’t exist. #MentalHealth #BrainWashing #Programming


This horror show is exactly what happened to anyone with an Oscar. Let that sink in. I don’t know that for sure but I suspect it to be true. The only way you get famous in Hollywood is if you are transgender. Many not by choice, born into it and all the other Satanic crap they get up to.

      Don’t be a chump. Cutting off your genitals to become a woman is dumber than chopping off your head to become a genius.
