How to make my adam's apple bigger?

Recommended Posts

Guest ThePenguin

Can you make your adam's apple bigger pre T?

Also how do I locate the AA on my neck? I can feel quite a large lump at the front but is it just an extra prominant windpipe ridge? The other ridges aren't nearly as prominant though.

-.- eugh, don't say there isn't a way...

Not pre T or on T as far as I have been able to discover-but look around-lots of men don't have a prominent Adam's apple and some women do. It isn't an important clue.

Better to spend your time on mannerisms and posture etc than worry about something that won't make a difference.

I am accepted 100% as male now and I don't have much of one though my voice has deepened a whole lot.

This is kind of an interesting topic. In my support group the adams apple just hasn't come up. No one seems too worried about it, they seem more concerned with their feet and hands. Facial hair and the enlarged bits down below!

Personally, I just want to build up some muscles and grow some facial hair and all will be right in my world. HOWEVER, an adams apple would be pretty cool, so I hope it comes too.

Sorry I don't believe that there is anyway to ensure an adams apple. It just is physiology.

I'm Pre T and have always had a prominent Adam's apple for some reason. More prominent than some of my male friends, to be honest. You can guess how that would lead to a lot of jokes.

I don't know why that is though. It might be genetics, because my brother has a prominent Adam's apple as well, but it might also be because I'm sickeningly thin. Might also be because I've been doing all these neck exercises to get a deeper voice. Mentioned it here: http://www.lauras-playground.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=41678

It would be nice to know if there was an actual way to make it more prominent though. Nice topic.

Thanks Falcon!

I saw your post the other day - I tried it and it worked! My voice sounded so deep at school! I even shocked a few people! But it's pretty much worn off now but I will definitely keep doing it!

Can doing those exercises make it bigger?

If I stretch my neck and look upwards, then and only then can you barely see mine. Otherwise, there is no way anyone would ever see it. My pictures I have posted on my profile you cannot see anything. And no, I have not had a tracheal shave. So while Adam's apples are typically considered by the general public to be a "male thing," observe (discreetly of course - hehe) other males / females and one quickly realizes it is definitely not an absolute "gender cue."

I honestly don't know if the exercises will make it bigger or more prominent, but this is what I look like: http://xrl.us/bmwpjg

Sorry, I don't have any normal photos with me right now. I'm the kind of person who avoids cameras, and obviously, that photo was made for other humorous purposes. XD Still, you get the point. Apart from the smiley face, this photo hasn't been edited in any way.

I read somewhere that people with larger vocal cords have more prominent Adam's apples. The exercises strengthen the vocal cords, but I don't know if it makes them bigger or anything. Can't be certain.

      Sounds like you are doing very well.  Back when I started things out on the name change, I could not do the gender change until after GCS.  Several months after my GCS and all the changes for me made, they changed the laws -- for the better -- so I would not have had the long drawn out  program that I had to do.  Keep your head high and you will make it, and laugh about all of the hassle.

      I have been wanting to legally change my name and gender marker for close to a year now. I am now divorced and living as a female as much as possible which has it complications. Today I went to see my regular doctor for a refill of my pain killers; I was dressed as Laura as I usually do since starting my transition. I have to go by my male name there because they won't use my preferred name like I do at my gender doctor's office. The doctor's nurse comes out and basically stands next to me and asks the front desk clerks if I had checked in for my appointment using my male name. She is told that I have so turns around and calls my name, to which I get up. She has a bit of a stunned look on her face and leads me to the examining room to wait for the doctor. I get my new prescription from the doctor and leave to pick it up at the pharmacy. When I get to the pharmacy the assistant pharmacist has some fun trying to find me in the system due to me going by Laura there and the name on the prescription was in my male name.    Before I have to see the doctor again which shouldn't be for about three or four months I will have to get the name change and gender marker taken care of.  I should also get it done before I see the psychiatrist this summer some time. I have started to receive mail in my preferred name which I was afraid was being sent back for some reason. As I posted else wheres my counselor has told me I am doing well at picking out appropriate outfits to wear that will help me fit in. The hormones have been a blessing in many ways, from slowing facial hair growth, allowing me to relax better mentally and changing my body physically.    Laura Beth

      Being safe online is definitely top priority but I think online dating can be done safely. I have a friend who is a cis woman who went on a few dates with a trans guy before he told her he was trans. Once he told her, she immediately called me to tell me about it and she was really sweet, if a little misinformed. She just kept saying, "but he's so HOT. He's definitely a man!" I had to roll my eyes and tell her that yes, trans men are men and can be just as conventionally attractive as cis men. Last I heard they were still dating and it was going great

      I love your stories, Charlize! I once had a friend who owned a red Nissan. His had big tires and looked more like a man-toy. I still miss my first Toyota (new), which got excellent mileage and didn't need a single repair in 135,000 miles. The second was geared for towing and guzzled gas. There's a huge auto show going on in Detroit over the next week and I hope to go and caress a few truck fenders   Gwen

      I can get why your friend is down. Dating for a cis man is hard (at least according to my own anecdotal experience). i dated with a male presentation for 1 month after separating from my ex wife but before coming out as a trans woman.   How many woman I actually dated? 0 To how many woman I talked online? 0   Dating is hard if you are not super pretty, lol

      I find that topic interesting.   Ok, I get that that's dangerous but more and more dating work with online dating sites. I personally make sure the other person know i'm transgender as soon as possible and I chat with this person for quite a bit before meeting in a neutral place with plenty of people. I'm not that active in dating because that's something that confuses me a lot but I had a couple of dates and it worked 1 or 2 times already.   I don't want to mislead people but at least here in Canada I don't have the impression that it's more dangerous for a trans woman then for a cis woman. My ex had a couple of dates too and I would say that she had stranger stories then me.   My feeling is that if you have an active life and you wait to find someone in real life you can wait a lot since there's so much people dating online.   to me the advantage of dating online is that I can put a transgender flag with "proud to be trans" written on it and write that I had the surgery in my description. I call that my "douchebag filter" In real life it can be more awkward and take too much time for the other person to know and ending up being more dangerous.   Dating only trans people, at least here in my local community, do not seem like a realistic option since we are too few. Finding the right person would be next to impossible...   well, that was my 2 cents on that. I,m actually surprised by the comments so far.
