#Transsexual: How to Transition from Male to Female #Transgender #CaitlynJenner #caitlyn

Male-to-female, or MTF, can be used as another term for trans woman. Whether you are a transgender or genderqueer, physical transition doesn't mean one has to have all of the options of having a physical transition. A trans woman may be straight, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, or even asexual. They wear whatever they want, whether it's feminine, masculine, or androgynous. You live your life however makes you feel happy. There is no "right" or "wrong" way of physically transitioning. You can go with whatever makes you feel comfortable.


  1. Practice an effort on passing - clothing, manners, and speech (body language is so so important). But just remember to be yourself. Pick the clothes that make you feel comfortable the most. You can train your voice to sound feminine. This can take a lot of time and work to train your voice at a certain pinch. Help with voice therapy is available through some speech therapists who specialize in transgender voice.

  2. Seek a qualified therapist who knows about gender transition. Seeing a therapist is required before you can get hormones and/or surgery, and therapists can also help with gender dysphoria and other issues you experience.
    • After plenty of thought, if you feel you need to pursue to physically transitioning, your therapist will write you a referral letter for an endocrinologist.

  3. The endocrinologist will prescribe a hormone regimen consisting of an estrogen and an anti-androgen.
    • There are many different kinds of medicine and forms, and all can cause severe liver damage if not monitored by a physician. NEVER try to self-medicate without a doctor.

  4. Know all the consequences:
    • You may grow breasts, depending on age and genetics.
    • Your breasts will continue growing in size for possibly the same amount of time for adolescence (i.e. 6-15 years), but not very substantially if you stop taking estros and anti-andros.
    • Stopping maintenance totally within or even after 3-6 month development period can cause bouts of severe and sudden exhaustion, weight gain, hallucinations, and/or uncontrollable erections.

    It will take several hundred hours of painful electrolysis to remove a full beard (at 75-100 dollars per hour). You should begin this early on as it takes many years to complete and also it is a good test of your pain threshold and commitment. If you have pale skin and darker hair, Laser Hair removal can be a cost-effective and less painful alternative, although it technically is not considered permanent hair removal, but hair reduction.

    Laser hair removal can be used on the body if you have dark hair and light skin. This will cost another 100-400 dollars per procedure, depending on how hairy you are and which parts of your body are being cleared of hair.

    Consider breast implants carefully. Many find that breasts continue to grow, but very slowly, so after ten years you can end up with too large breasts. Many people don't get implants. Both of these are available in the US and overseas. It is considered as a best placement to have either type inserted under the muscle to provide a more natural look. They ride high and settle into place in the first 6 months post-procedure.
    • Saline implants involve a smaller incision near the armpit, and they are inflated after insertion.
    • Silicon implants are similar to gummy bears in composition. The days of these spilling out are gone with technology that has been proven for more then 10 years now.
    • Know that breast implants are a risky procedure, and they may leak toxins. Once you have them, it's unwise to have them permanently removed: your chest probably won't look good. Make sure that you are certain that you want them before you get them.

  8. Facial feminization surgery is optional depending on the individual's circumstances; it can also be very expensive.

  9. Read and learn as much as you can before going forward with your plans. Plan financially as well as it may cost upwards of 50,000 - 75,000 dollars to transition [including FFS] plus you may need savings for time between jobs.

  10. Join support groups in your area or online support groups like,, etc, which will help you get through your transition peacefully and not make you feel like you are the only one transitioning.

Tips and Warnings

  • There will be a period of swelling in your nipples and breast, pain levels vary by individual, make sure you are eating well and are not dieting at the same time to make the best of dosage effects.
  • If you feel ill, consult your doctor.
  • Do not stop HRT unless medically directed to do so, starting and stopping can cause damage to your endocrine system.
  • If you absolutely must self-medicate (which is not recommended, but some poor transgender people do it due to costs), research thoroughly. Seek every nook and corner of this part of the subject.
  • It's never too late to transition. Even if you're an adult, you can still transition and look great.
  • Don't follow what amount of pills they might have taken because everybody is biologically different, we age differently, look differently and act differently, who knows us better than ourselves, so the key is know thy body!
