I have been a member here for a couple of months, reading and learning from the post. I am 71 year old intersex male. During puberty is when changes were noticed with my development. My male parts did not develop and I sprouted breast buds. I went through the usual teasing and torment in junior high and high school. My body continued growing and I reached 6'2" and 225 lbs. I started wearing a bra in high school very discreetly. My parents took me to several doctors to try to figure out what was going on with me. I have always presented as male mainly because of my size. Over the years I have been treated with t shots and suggestions of surgery to remove breast and re-do genitalia. The T made me ill and no way did I want surgery. I always had low T and this affected both my mental and physical development. I was put on estrogen in my late 30's and I improved both mentally and physically. My mind had always thought female and changes to during my body have made me feel more female. I love my soft and smooth skin, hairless body, 44 full C breast. I have had an orchi which really helped me. I never wanted srs. An ovary was found during the orchi procedure. So much for the doctors years ago that couldn't figure out my problem. I feel I am a transwomen, but present non-binary (butch). I love life and wouldn't change a thing. Sorry for the long post..

I’ve been searching this site & the internet and am having trouble locating anything helpful. I need someone that I can talk to about my husband, how to best help him, and how to get through it myself. He is intersex and has lived as a man his whole adult life. As a child he was treated as female, but asserted he wasn’t at a very young age. He was androgynous as a teen. Started on hormones at 20 and had top surgery at 22. He is now 33 and his GD is it the point that he can no longer put off having bottom surgery. We met when he was 18, became friendly when he was in his mid twenties, and started dating when he was 29. I just need to speak to women who have gone through bottom surgery with a partner. What it was like for both of them? What was the healing and recovery process? What helped the partner the most? How were they able to get through everything? I’m at a complete loss and need some assistant. I have so many questions.
