Sex reassignment surgery


Also known as sex change or gender reassignment surgery, sex reassignment surgery is a procedure that changes genital organs from one gender to another.


There are two main reasons to alter the genital organs from one sex to another.

In both cases, technical considerations favor successful conversion to a female rather than a male. Newborns with ambiguous organs will almost always be assigned to the female gender unless the penis is at least an inch long. Whatever their chromosomes, they are much more likely to be socially well adjusted as females, even if they cannot have children.


Reliable statistics are extremely difficult to obtain. Many sexual reassignment procedures are conducted in private facilities that are not subject to reporting requirements. Sexual reassignment surgery is often conducted outside of the United States. The number of gender reassignment procedures conducted in the United States each year is estimated at between 100 and 500. The number worldwide is estimated to be two to five times larger.


Converting male to female anatomy requires removal of the penis, reshaping genital tissue to appear more female, and constructing a vagina. A vagina can be successfully formed from a skin graft or an isolated loop of intestine. Following the surgery, female hormones (estrogen) will reshape the body's contours and stimulate the growth of satisfactory breasts.

Female to male surgery has achieved lesser success due to the difficulty of creating a functioning penis from the much smaller clitoral tissue available in the female genitals. Penis construction is not attempted less than a year after the preliminary surgery to remove the female organs. One study in Singapore found that a third of the persons would not undergo the surgery again. Nevertheless, they were all pleased with the change of sex. Besides the genital organs, the breasts need to be surgically altered for a more male appearance. This can be successfully accomplished.

The capacity to experience an orgasm, or at least "a reasonable degree of erogenous sensitivity," can be expected by almost all persons after gender reassignment surgery.


Gender identity is an extremely important characteristic for human beings. Assigning it must take place immediately after birth, for the mental health of both children and their parents. Changing sexual identity is among the most significant changes that a human can experience. It should therefore be undertaken with extreme care and caution. By the time most adults come to surgery, they have lived for many years with a dissonant identity. The average in one study was 29 years. Nevertheless, even then they may not be fully aware of the implications of becoming a member of the opposite gender.

In-depth psychological counseling should precede and follow any gender reassignment surgical procedure.

Sex change surgery is expensive. The cost for male to female reassignment is $7,000 to $24,000. The cost for female to male reassignment can exceed $50,000.


Social support, particularly from one's family, is important for readjustment as a member of the opposite gender. If surgical candidates are socially or emotionally unstable before the operation, over the age of 30, or have an unsuitable body build for the new gender, they tend not to fare well after gender reassignment surgery. However, in no case studied did the gender reassignment procedure diminish their ability to work.


All surgery carries the risks of infection, bleeding, and a need to return for repairs. Gender reassignment surgery is irreversible, so a candidate must have no doubts about accepting the results and outcome.

Normal results

Persons undergoing gender reassignment surgery can expect to acquire the external genitalia of a member of the opposite gender. Persons having male to female gender reassignment surgery retain a prostate. Individuals undergoing female to male gender reassignment surgery undergo a hysterectomy to remove the uterus and oophorectomy to remove their ovaries. Developing the habits and mannerisms characteristic of the patient's new gender requires many months or years.

To change male genitalia to female genitalia, an incision is made into the scrotum (A). The flap of skin is pulled back, and the testes are removed (B). The skin is stripped from the penis but left attached, and a shorter urethra is cut (C). All but a stump of the penis is removed (D). The excess skin is used to create the labia (external genitalia) and vagina (E). (Illustration by GGS Inc.)

Morbidity and mortality rates

The risks that are associated with any surgical procedure are present in gender reassignment surgery. These include infection, postoperative pain, and dissatisfaction with anticipated results. Accurate statistics are extremely difficult to find. Intraoperative death has not been reported.

The most common complication of male to female surgery is narrowing of the new vagina. This can be corrected by dilation or using a portion of colon to form a vagina.

A relatively common complication of female to male surgery is dysfunction of the penis. Implanting a penile prosthesis is technically difficult and does not have uniformly acceptable results.

Psychiatric care may be required for many years after sex-reassignment surgery.

The number of deaths in male-to-female transsexuals was five times the number expected, due to increased numbers of suicide and death from unknown cause.


There is no alternative to surgical reassignment to alter one's external genitalia. The majority of persons who experience gender disorder problems never surgically alter their appearance. They dress as members of the desired gender, rather than gender of birth. Many use creams or pills that contain hormones appropriate to the desired gender to alter their bodily appearance. Estrogens (female hormones) will stimulate breast development, widening of the hips, loss of facial hair and a slight increase in voice pitch. Androgens (male hormones) will stimulate the development of facial and chest hair and cause the voice to deepen. Most individuals who undergo gender reassignment surgery lead happy and productive lives.

Gender reassignment surgery is performed by surgeons with specialized training in urology, gynecology, or plastic and reconstructive surgery. The surgery is performed in a hospital setting, although many procedures are completed in privately owned clinics.

I was wondering what happens when you get the reassignment surgery to become a male how would you get it to the size you want it to be. I notice that when you go through the surgery the penis is small and I want it bigger then the size.

I note the assertion in your section above: "Newborns with intersex deformities must early on be assigned to one sex or the other."


This is surely the biggest error you can make. Such assumptions have been made where the risk that the wrong gender is chosen and the individual in later life is left truly stuck in the wrong gender. The individual should be allowed from the very beginning to express which gender they identify with.

What is wrong with the individual directly affected by this situation having a choice in the matter? And for that matter, what is wrong in acknowledging by birth a third physical sex?

Making uninformed decisions on behalf of other people on such basic personal issues can only de described as a human rights violation.

Thank you.
I was just wondering when you get the male to female surgery, how many operations does it take for it to be final, I am considering this operation and its what i want to be happy and I am going to need it before college starts and i only want to have the vaginolplasty (sorry if thats mispelled) surgery, hopefully just one operation...thank you =)

I'm also 16 years old and well basically my questions are similar to Emily's
i'm interested in FtM surgery, I wake up each morning thinking I could be living a different, better life. But knowing I have to spend several more years through the difficulty, its unbearable and I'm also wondering if theres a age requirement, details on counseling and such.

Sex reassignment surgery is about $1,000,000 if you must know you all. You'd have to be a millionaire in order to afford this surgery, without a doubt! The most famous person I know so far that has had this surgery with success is Wendy Carlos or "Walter". Carlos was originally a boy then turned into a female whenever he... I mean, she was born. Technically, this type of surgery isn't 100% accurate so y'all need ta know the facts: trying to change yourself "physically" is the most hardest thing rather than "emotionally" really. If I were you, avoid completing a costly meaning cash, at all times!
hello, I was wondering if, when you have a sex change operation to a boy, are you able to have an erection? And I'm bisexual and wondering if, if I have this operation that I may still "be" with my boyfriend.

My husband had the M2F surgery back in 2002. She had the surgery to remove the penis and testicles. She had it done in Bangkok, Thailand for $5000 which included the hospital stay and recovery in a motel across from the hospital. It cost $1200 for airfare but that is the only costs involved. The hospital care was "Excellent" and the nurses and doctor were extremely caring. I would recommend checking out some of the resources in Thailand as the US and Canada can run over $18,000 just for the hospital stay.
As far as the changes, my husband started taking hormones a year before surgery and developed breasts which are very large now. She also went through psychological counseling for a year previous to the surgery which is recommended.
NO insurance does not cover anything for this surgery and one day maybe they will as it is not the person's fault they were born that way.
Okay, some idiot on here said it would cst a million dollars, that's stupid. People asking the price, it says it in the article. As for age limits, I'm 15 years old and I had chest reconstruction surgery a little over a month ago. I'm satisfied with my results, I do have scars but I'm working on making them fade. The contour is great, I do have a dip in my right side, but I'm working out to build muscle there and even it out. I'm also currently pursuing a hysterectomy and oopherectomy, I've been gathering information for my arguement and have a doctors appointment in a week to talk about it. I have been on testosterone for about a year now, I wasn't able to get hormone blockers. After I turn 18 (because no doctor in the US will preform it on me) I plan on getting a matiodioplasty with urethral lengtheing and scrotal implants, the results for a phalloplasty are not what I want, a matoidioplasty will give be a natural, albiet small, penis, and the urethral lenghtening will allow me to urinate through it. Don't rely solely on this information, search around, there are some great alternatives. Oh, and some people were talking about getting a sex change so they could get a job, that's the most idiotic thing I've ever heard. If your sex and gender match then don't change your sex.

David A. Huddlestonsmith, M.D.
I spent a number of years working with Transgender Patients, and did most of the follow-up care after the initial surgery as I lived in the Los Angeles area, and almost all ofthe surgeries were done at Stanford (F to M) and in Trinidad, Colorado where most of the M to F surgical procedures were successfully accomplished..

To date, there still is no genuine set of rules that the patients and Doctors actually work by, and it is ashame because there are so many people that want the surgery, and they can search and search until they find a surgeon that will not require things such as Psychotherapy, initiation of Hormone Therapy (but no definite amount of time required with many M.D.'s).

Without the "basics" prior to initiation of Hormones and eventual surgery, all too frequently these patients are grossly dissatisfied with the results, even though they know that they did not follow Guidelines such as the Harry Benjamin Standards for Sex Reassignment Surgery, began at Stanford University.

There were a number of suicides, both pre and post-op, and this generally was when the patient did not follow Protocol. Some horribly self-mutilations happened, and sometimes I was the first one to see what mess the patient had made, and see if there was something that could be done to correct at least part of the Surgical Procedure that had been performed.

All in all, I do not recommend it as the results are almost less that the patient was hoping for, as the surgery is not "magic", and it does not cure all problems like some hope for, being a "Quick Fix". I am retired now, but worked with the Transgender Community for somewhere between 10-15 years, and had about 100+ patients that were Transgender- some pre-op, some post-op, and many just starting to learn about what will be happening to their bodies from the very beginning. Most couples (generally Gay) did not stay together post-op as what their partners were looking for had been surgically removed, or the results were far from satisfactory.
i am a male, 17 years old, and no one knows that i want to become a female.
Im curious about the M-to-F surgery: first of all, throughout the surgery, is there any pain involved to the patient? (even before surgery?) and what complications can happen post-surgery? I want to be a normal female, not have an abnormally shaped vagina, or one that malfunctions. Also, during surgery, what is the condition of the patient?(are they sleeping, awake but numb, or what? and what is done to ensure the patient does not receive any pain?) Also, after surgery, how long does it take for the vagina to be prepared for intercourse, and will it hurt when the patient urinates? (or must they urinate using a bag/etc). Please explain to me these things in detail, for I am looking forward to getting this surgery done, and want to be completely aware of what i am going to undergo -- since i can not contact a doctor in real due to the fear of anyone finding out, i'd appreciate it greatly if you would help. Thank You! =)

thank you ,Angela C. Benson
Hello, I am really wanting to have a male to female change.
I am 21 now and I have always been a very feminine male and I have always wanted to be a girl, I haven't spoken to my parents about it though as they aren't the most supportive people in the world with this type of thing. I have however told my friends and most of them support me, a few think it's not right. Basically I wanted to know if there were any decent doctors in the UK would be best as I would rather not travel outside of the country to talk about it. I was wanting to know, when I go to the doctors will they tell anyone such as immediate family? As I am over the age of 18 I pressume not but would be best to know. I was also wondering the same as someone else on the comments, what is the state of the person going in for the surgery eg. awake, numb etc. I really want to talk more about it with someone as I try to act as manly as I can in front of people who don't know or those who think I am joking with them. I literally have no idea how to get things started or if I would be able to go in and tell a doctor because I am petrified of what people will think, I know that doctors have the whole non judgmental saying but in all fairness I have been judged by doctors before and it has made me scared to tell them anything personal about my health. If you could e-mail me more details about how I would start off the proccess that would be great also how much it would cost in GBP to have the surgery as I am working and I am guessing it may take me a little bit to save up for. Thank you in advance.
I want sex reassignment surgery but it's so expensive. I keep checking the prices on TSSurgeryGuide and it keeps going up. Also cost of flying too. :(
I'm a man and want to be a girl, how much would the surgery cost?
im a boy & i want to get a MTF (Male to Female) Sex change , i need to know the cost so i can save up and get the operation done
im a female and really want to be a male. im so uncomfortable in my body and im only 16 years old, i am bisexual. i want to know will i be able to ejaculate/cum/come when i get a penis? what would the cost be, please help me, im getting so depressed about my body the way it is. also, can i get it dont through nhs?
I was quite surprised when my daughter Techla married a bisexual man. She was a mere 20 years old, and I had been her comfort and support all through her teen years, when she chose what I thought was an obvious lesbian lifestyle. My only concern about her marriage to Stanislaus was the issue of fidelity: could she live with the possibility that her husband might have affairs with other men? But now, after two years of marriage, my daughter tells me that her husband is undergoing therapy, which he hopes will eventually lead to sex-reassignment surgery. Techla (prounounced Tek-la, by the way) is happy with Stanislaus's decision, and they both trust me and know that I will "be here all the way" for them.

But Doctors, please help me (and my children) to cope with the consequences. Stanislaus/Stacey will definitely lose his job, have to change his whole life, and probably move away. We live in Virginia, and if my son-in-law becomes my daughter-in-law, their marriage will immediately become null and void. In this state, they would never be allowed to adopt children. But most importantly, they just DON'T WANT to live far away from home. I will, of course, support (and if necessary, defend) them; but I can't bear the sacrifice of seeing them forced to pick up and move to a state with a more liberal atmosphere. I'm confused, befuddled, and most of all, SCARED. Can anybody out there off me comfort?

I Was Wanting To Know How Much A Female To Male Sex Change Would Cost $? And If I Got It Would I Be Able To Have Children Of My Own Please Let Me know Thanks ...
Hello sir, I am suresh, i want to change my sex from male to female, i want to become a female. Coz i think, i am a female from inside, but caught in a male body. everytime i feel myself a female, please let me know, where to go for this operation, and is it possible in india. As well as, what wud be the total cost. I will not consider pain.
Hey, I'm a 16 year old girl, and I seriously want a FtM operation. I have thought about this for many years, and a lot of my friends support me, along with my little sister. I must know, is there any way to get the surgery for less but with good quality? What is the size of your penis after getting this operation, and does it function like a normal boy? Is there an age limit inthe United States for this operation?? Are there any surgeons or hospitals that are able to do this operation in or near the state of Ohio?
I'm too scared to tell my dad, because he really hates homosexuals and transgenders...How do I tell him? More importantly, how do I tell my best friend? I'm really scared to tell her because I'm worried that it will ruin our friendship.
Thanks for the information.

I have always considered myself as a female trapped inside of a males body, so my question is how much, roughly, would the operation cost, including the dilation tools, estrogen, psychiatrist appointments, and so on.

I'm 17, almost 18. I have just a couple questions. One: I was born a female. But from day one I never felt like a girl. I wore boy clothes. Looked at other girls. First kiss was with a girl. Then in middle school I decided to liked girls, but hid it so my parents wouldn't abandon me. Then I came out freshman year. Then I thought I was transgender. But now I just don't even feel like a gender. I just feel like Damien. I only like girls. But I am not in anyway a gender. What does this mean? And question 2: I hate having breasts, an hourglass curve and having a high voice. But I'm not wanting a penis. Would I still have to undergo testosterone therapy?

(I know this is a bit hypocritical, but it's kind of saddening that people are asking questions.)
I was born a woman and feel like a woman and wouldn't change anything about my self. Whoever maid the comment that said will I be able to have children and get periods if I change to a women what the fuck no!! Because they don't give you women organs like a uterus and ovaries they just give you plastic surgery on your genital to make it look like a woman's
After the surgery from male to female can you have an orgasm?
Hello. I'm a 23 year old male. I have been dressing as a female for about two years now but only started that recent because I was self-conscious about what others thought until I went into a local restaurant and everyone there took me for a female. I've always had the inclination that I was born into the wrong gender and have been seeking out knowledge on Male to Female surgery like for instance the cost, area I can get it done, whether or not I would be able to get it on some kind of payment plan, and the approximate time of surgery and recovery time. Can you please help me before it is to late for me to get the surgery?
i am cd..i wanna change my gender..mtf...advice me for more
Hi I've wanted to be a man since I was six. I am currently 17. I was wondering where I should go if I wasn't satisfied with my penis size because it seems like I wont be at first and its very concerning. I've always been into girls but its been very hard trying to find someone because not all girls are into girls, so that makes my life rather depressing. I've thought it through over and over again and I'm entirely sure I want this done. There's just the issue of money and where I should get the surgery done plus where I should go to get anything fixed.
I am 20 and ive been wanting to get a sex change since I was 12 and I was wondering how long the recuperation would be for male to female? also how much it would cost generally for the reassignment surgery and everything else that goes along with it would cost? anyone out there that has had it done and are willing to help me out ill be very thankful thanks :)
I am 20. I really wanted to become female when I was about 7. My mom dismissed it as being nonsense going through my mind. I tried to make myself forget about the feelings I was having and never talked about it because I was afraid of what people, especially my own family might think. When I had intercourse with a woman when I was 15, I really started to feel that the body I'm in does not feel right for me.

I've been on happy for such a long time and I can't take it any more. I live in Columbia, MO and was wondering if there are any doctors in the State of Missouri that perform gender reassignment surgery. Thank you.

You need help. Looking for a sex change. Unbielivable, means of life
Hi I'm Destiny I'm 16 and I've always wanted to get a sex change from female to male. Sadly my family is poor and we have no way to make the money. Everyday I feel trapped in this body and I can't stand it. Can someone please tell me ways to get the full change at a cheap cost? Also I need some help on how I will tell my parents about the decision I made.

I'm an FtM who identifies as gay. I'm worried that the hormones required, to physically alter me to my real gender, may cause me to become attracted to women. I'm quite happy being gay and mentally would be uncomfortable being sexually attracted to women. Is this a possibility?
Is there a part of FtM surgery that gives one an Adam's apple?
hello, i m rozario & i m 30+ yrs old woman. i want to change my gender from female to male. i always dressed like a boy from my childhood. At the first glance, people cannot identify by gender. they think that i m a boy. what should i do if i want to change my gender? has it any age limitation? pls answer me as earl as possible n
I am only thirteen but I really want a FTM surgery because since I was really little I always wanted to be a boy because l though it would be so much easier, and I grew up and I still feel this way and have even had dreams where i just went around being a guy, and if we played it right the cost wouldn't be a problem, but I am really reserved so it would be hard to tell my family this. Not only that, there are about thirty people related to me as aunts, uncles, cousins, and close family friends that would have to be told about this. Also about fifty people I am close to that I would interact with five days of the week that would be shocked by this. How should I tell them about what I want?
I WANT to know if a boy gets female hormones just to get the soft voice and wider hips is it a must that he will encounter breast development without implanting them?
When I was about 17 I went a boy's camp and we ask to a "skit" I did not know what to do and one other teenager asked me dress up as a woman. I agreed putting a drees on, lipstick on on and make up on. I left the the dress for the rest of the night and I felt the the woman in me. The next morning when when I put men's clothes on I knew I was a woman trapped in a man's body. Ever since I know I am trapped in a woman's body and if I knew if I could had a sex change I would have it so people I know now would only know the real me. I wear woman's clothes and always a woman's nightie to bed. My mother accepts me as her daughter. I do not know if too old to have a sex change at 61 at 61.
I m 19 years old girl i want FTM surgery.How much it wil cost? Is there any surgeon for this near North-East State? I fal in luv wit a girl but my family n her family does not like it but i really luv her. Please give a details for the above. Thanking u
I'm curious. My girlfriend and I have been dating for 5 months now but this is the second time her parents figured out were dating. They don't want me dating her because I am a girl. We used to talk about marriage and children and I feel like a sex change is the only way to be with her. But would we still be able to have children if I went through the change?
Hello please excuse the email address i did not make it. I wanted to know if i were to get the bottom surgery on a ftm gender change would i be able to ejaculate. i have asked multiple people and most only know of friends that were mtf so out of curiosity i decided to come here to ask. sorry if its a stupid question but i was just wondering.

Dear Doctor,
Can you have sex after the surgery is complete?
I was wondering if you have the right body build to be a man. F.Y.I.. I am a 17 year old girl. I just have never felt like i am really me.. i mean, I have always envyed guys they can strip all most nude and everyone is fine, but God help us if it was a lady who wants to do the same thing. So my entire life I have always told everyone that ... this a bit strange but, I said that i was born a puppy i'm a girl now but when i grow-up i'll be a man... I was ohhh about 6 or 7. Please help me find balance between me being a girl or for me to be a guy.

Castiel Driver
My name is Castiel.
I am a...female.

Sorry to bother but I can't seem to get over my insecurity with the the lines of my DNA also known as the genetic make up.

My parents don't get me with the identity confusion.This is one of my most severe major problems.I can't get over it,when someone tries to explain that being a girl isn't bad,it makes me feel worse.I wasn't ment for this role in life.I have the mind of a man,dress like one,and get very uncomfortable with remarks of feminicity.I was wondering,what complications could be risked after the FTM surgery.Is there any risk of infection or tissue disentigration?What requirements does the hormone therapy meet?What is the best surgery that meets all/or most male attributes erectile function? If you are too busy I understand.But I've been needing this FTM since I was 7.That is a long time for the depression to last within insecurities of Severe Gender Identity Disorder.I am 14 and I would like to get a better understanding for this procedure.When I am hanging out with the guys,they don't see me as a person.I had always lied about my gender and never wanted to believe i am a girl.I cant stand looking in the mirror and seeing myself as this person.Herbal remedies to decrease breast size,they dont seem to work.Everyone sees me as a freak.I cant stand the girl name,the girl body,or girly voice.So i figured the only way to get past all of that is to have the FTM.Is there anyway to have full erectile function without complications.Full function of the testies?What area of the body is the best donor skin?What time shall it take to find full recovery?Is there any monthly therapy to check recovery?Sorry for so many questions,but if if you can at least help me find a few answers,i will thank you greatly.

Hi, I am 17 years old about to be 18 and i am seriously considering a sex change and i was wandering if someone could give me some info about it, or maybe tell me someone i could contact. if i could only just change my appearance instead of changing everything about me (my genitals) that would be nice. i would like to loose my boobs though. If you could help that would be amazing.

Thank you.

Hi,I had Sex Reassignment Surgery M to F in January of this year in Thailand at the Piyavate Hospital my Surgery was performed by who I consider to be the best in the world and the Dr / Surgeons private clinic is in Bangkok. My Surgery went well and all was completed successfully in 2 hours 15 mins, I had only a small complication of where my body rejected the Anaesthetic and I had a very low blood pressure but they got that under control and I regained as normal but the next day it seemed that I had developed Delirium and because I was so unsettled I caused myself a tear in the lower area were the stitches next to the Neo Vaginal entrance now is and I had to have this tear mended and restitched.
It has now been 4 months and I find that the area that was mended is very hard and can be quite sore and tender and I seem to have what I believe is a sharp stitch or something hard that causes some discomfort when Dilating and for this reason I am being very un practicing to perform this chore sometimes and only once a week at times depending on how I feel after the sharp pain from the last attempt. Also I have an amount of pain around the upper pelvic area across the bone region and this is still sore to apply some pleasure and I can only hope that this discomfort is normal and will go away within the 12 month healing period. Other than that I am happy with the outcome and I am now living a normal life as I was such as before my surgery still on HRT Proginova but glad to now not be on any Testosterone Blockers, mind I should say that Sex is not an issue as I am not interested in that being any major factor in my life and relationship as just being myself healthy and living as now normally is more than life itself so I wouldn't change back even if I could and we all know that once you have undergone this surgery you can never go back. So to everyone Be true to yourself and think hard of what it really means to you and your life before deciding to go as far as I have mind you I had lived 25 years as a full time Female in daily society before I made the choice and I thought every thing out over many hard years.
I am a seventeen-year-old male that has been living with gender identity issues for years. until recently, I have had no one to help and support me in my secret dream of being a woman, due to the fact that I live in a staunchly Catholic household. Reading this article has been very helpful for me. I have been researching SRS and other things pertaining to gender reassignment, and for the most part, I have come across many sites that don't seem to consider the existence of transgender lesbians like myself. This article said nothing about any definite sexualities that are supposed to apply to a whole minority, providing a neutral atmosphere. For that, you have my thanks.

I have a friend who is transgender and she's been taking hormones for awhile now. She wants to go through with the surgery but is afraid because she has HIV. What kinda infomation is there for her and anyone who has similar situations.
Is it ever too late to do this surgery? Should I look for psychological help?
I would like to know if after FTM operation a person can have functional penis for sex also can produce sperms and have his own kids without sperm downer or does it need an extra operation? And how do put penis do u implant from a downer it or just put an artificial one
30 year old female can go for this ftm surgery. How much it cost what are the step by step procedure for the surgery. And this surgery is possible in India or have to go outside India. And very important does the govt allow this surgery . the society accept this change and the person change identity is accepted by law in writing. Is this surgery is successful . please write to this email .
I'm 27 and I'm in college, also a single mother. I was wound what is the cost to get started with those hormone pills. I been wanna to become a man but I didn't know who to talk to. So can you help me out, in I stay in Texas. So are there some where close by.
The curious one
Hey I've been thinking this for a while and I just have to ask this question:
What if someone does indeed want to be both male and female at the same time?
This might seem stupid question but is it possible to achieve that via sex change?
Again if this seems stupid that's just because I really don't know much about this stuff so sorry for that.
hey I'm female and I'm very interested in the ftm surgery. Everyday l imagine myself being a guy, actually from peoples perspective they see me as a guy. The way l dress, walk, talk even the way l do things reflect that l was supposed to be a male. I really want to know if they are pills to stop me from going on my monthly periods and how the sex change really works.

Thanks for your lessons and soon l will want to do the FTM surgery.
I was wondering how much it would cost to get the ftm surgery. I haven't felt comfortable in my body since I was 10 and I'm 18 now and I wanna get this so bad. It would make me feel so much more comfortable with myself. When you get a boner will the penis get stiff or hard like normal? What are the steeps of preparing for this surgery? And how much would it cost with insurance?

please help me i turned girl to guy but uncompleate male organ
I am a 19 year old female that would like info on how to get a SRS, the general out of pocket costs, and all complications. I am very much into martial arts and training...I would like to know if I can do that after all the surgeries. Also what kind of psychological treatment would be necessary for this? I don't see why when I already have the mentality and mannerisms of a male.

I just want to know how long it would take to transition and how long i should wait to start my plastic surgery afterwards.
I have felt most of my life at least 35 years that I was a women trapped in a man's body I really don't feel I want to be with a man but I would love to be a woman when I dress up as a woman I feel more secure about myself confident I was just wondering is 45 years old to have reassignment is too old I want to be a woman so bad I can't explain should I try therapy first when I dress up I feel so much better of myself Where is closes place in west Virginia you can have reassignment done
I'm happy I found this. My friend wants to be a male so I can send a link to her.

Hi I'm a transsexual. I changed 13 years ago. The question I want you to be aware of is stokes, blood clots, complications years later after having SRS surgery!
I went through total transition with several University sex change transition programs. The surgery will defiantly effect your health 10 or 20 years down the road. I have lost two transsexual sisters due to strokes and other issues. They both died many years before their time, in my opinion.
If you have diabetes, or heart murmurs or other preexisting medical conditions you probably may die way before your time. Doctors should have a time table of physical repercussions or effects of making through the first 8 years of HRT treatment. I believe that after surgery it will exacerbate you experiencing debilitating conditions years down the road.
What situations after SRS might contribute to shortening your life. The answer is all most anything e.g. accidents, drug- personal abuse, smoking, high blood pressure
The thing is SRS weakens your bodies ability to recover from most medical issues.
Even if you just take HRT (hormone treatment alone) if you stay at higher hormone rates for over 8 years you circulatory system, liver, pancreas,heart and other parts of your body will experience debilitating side effects. I had swollen legs. I could hardly walk at- times now. After 8 years on HRT I got of hormones. I suggest after 5 years dropping it back or get of hormones after 5 years. For nearly 10 years I daily used estradiol 2mg, Spirolactone its anti androgen, Modraxal Progesterone . My doctors gave me these pilss to help my gender dysphoria but like I said it will catch up with you!! Medically Spirolactone was designed as a blood pressure medicine. So My negative side effects is blood pressure now is hypertensive 1 sometimes hypertensive 2. Ten years ago my blood pressure was 170/82, so now its 198/100 sometimes 200/100. This could cause a person possible stroke. In 10 years my weight shot from 180lb to 340lb. However, my transsexual sisters who died- had always kept their weight down, but they still died from different issues related blood clots. Why doesn't the medical field have or keep records on all the repercussion and compllications of these drug treatments. Until extremely accurate medical statistic are ascertained I advise you to change your name, social security, your clothing and the way you walk and talk to your transgender gender you feel you are, but you don't need die 8 or more afterwards because the medical knowledge is out there to protect your health.

Hi I am a 17 year old Female who is VERY uncomfortable with my body ! First I would like to start off by introducing that I was born with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) which is a common inherited form of adrenal insufficiency. This disease is due to mutations (genetic defects) in the genes coding for several enzymes needed to produce vital adrenal cortex hormones. In other words my body cannot produce enough cortisol and aldosterone hormones. As an infant this disease caused abnormal growth of my clitoris so by the time I grew up to notice what was going on I developed a penis. Most doctors normally solve this problem immediately at birth but I was unlucky and had to wait 11 years to have surgery. As a young child who just wanted to be normal I soon realized that I was already normal and that my parents made the wrong choice of taking away my purpose and pride. Even after the surgery her i am today even worse but still undeveloped my urine is coming out of my vagina whole and the whole I'm suppose to urine out of is missing? I am so messed up that it even trigger my mental health I'm depressed and have suicide thoughts daily can anyone contact me and identify some kind of science to the madness ! Please help me
I'm confused on this topic and I want to change my gender to Male, but I'm only 14 years old. I only have a few questions.

1.) How young can a girl be to get Sex Change Surgery in the United States?
2.) Am I able to join the military if I change my gender?
3.) How can I get a really low surgery cost in the United States?
4.) Will changing my gender show on my personal records when I get a job?
5.) Am I the only 14 year old looking into this?
1.) How young can a girl be to get Sex Change Surgery in the United States?
Here in Charlotte, the only doctor offering SRS offers it from 16 and up. Presumably, this includes WPATH pre-requisites of referrals from two psychiatrists and living full time as a man (in your case. As an MtF, I'd live full time as a woman instead) for a year, too.
2.) Am I able to join the military if I change my gender?
In the United States, trans people (both FtMs and MtFs) can serve openly as of 2016.
3.) How can I get a really low surgery cost in the United States?
Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to find a low price for surgery. Provided you can get the folks on board, you could probably start a gofundme to start working on affording hormones, therapists, et al. I tried to get mine on board, but they still haven't responded.
4.) Will changing my gender show on my personal records when I get a job?
I assume it would be brought up, but I'm currently unable to transition to female, so I wouldn't know.
5.) Am I the only 14 year old looking into this?
Well, I turned 16 a few weeks back and first looked into SRS at 13 (although I didn't know I was trans until a few months later). I've also met two other 16-year-old MtFs on a forum, so I'm sure you're not alone in this either.

Hey, I am a 12 year old female. I was wondering if I could get the surgery of a female to a male WITHOUT seeing a therapist also talk about lowering the price a bit. I don’t want to tell my mom I want to do this because she is just gonna say “why do you wanna do this, I’ll lose my baby girl if you do this” and I don’t want to tell her because she might cry and I don’t feel comfortable talking to her about it. What do you think I should do to explain it to her? My friend is getting this surgery, should I ask her what to say to my mom about it because she told her mom? Can you help me explain it to my mom? Can you also get my surgery done ASAP. I need to find a way to explain it to her without making her cry and me getting uncomfortable.

Hi I'm 16 years old and I was born more like my mother than my father. I'm male but I always felt uncomfortable as a male. I found out about the possibility of gender change and was curious to change to a female. But I'm having the difficulty of even suggesting this to my family. Is there a group that can. Support people like me? I was also wondering how much would it cost to change from male to female. Also I live in Scotland. I would really appreciate some help in this as its very hard to tell anyone. Thank you
