Well I have a T check this Monday so we will see. Though I do not think I’m physically incapable but it’s more a mental component of I don’t care about it and it’s not a priority in my daily thinking. Certainly not as it was when I was living fully male.
Which again makes me very happy. My issue also is I’m not in a relationship where sex can even happen nor does anyone want me in the regard. That plays a big roll too.
Amanda I'm sorry to read of your disappointment and sorry that youve had to be rescheduled. Perhaps it's just as well if that hospital isn't going to be welcoming, you certainly wouldn't want to spend any time there. Or perhaps it's a technical issue, who knows? At any rate, you'll get there!

Hello and welcome Piper! You needn't feel shy. I lurked for more than a month just reading before signing in at the encouragement of my gender therapist!
Lots of good information and friendly folks here.
You probably want to make sure your T is high enough. T blockers may not even be necessary, and can apparently even be harmful and prevent future breast growth if your levels get too low. This is according to a few sources including my doctor.
From what I understand the "O" just takes practice. I'm sure you will learn if you try. They are not the same as before. I have had different types even before discovering who I was.
I’m not trying overly hard to speak differently as my voice therapist has my baseline voice at gender neutral. I do feel I emit a more feminine voice and somewhat softer then before. I was told by my VT that I sound somewhat shy with being extremely confident in action.
But I do have lots of work still in that.
I appreciate the nice comments. I do feel confident in my female look now since I have finally seen that women from the inside come forth and I even show pride in myself. I’ve always have been an overly confident person though so this is not new to me. Lol
🤣 At least you will always remember it!
You've started the ball rolling now. Have fun being yourself in public. You know there's no going back now right?! 😋 It feels too wonderful.
And it is totally awesome that you are passing in public already! Are you using your female voice?
One thing I love about going out as myself is that even though I know I don't pass, most people treat me well, especially women. That affirmation is euphoric all on its own.
I ve always known that on some level but never thought I’d have to relay on my brain so much for this. Lol
My lady meds have shut down the works down there. I’m both happy and sad.
I don’t know if I will ever have an “O” again.
Interesting... LOL I never thought of it in the past tense. For those who aren't following, here is the difference (I think this is what Alex means):
Present Tense - to pass a test. This occurs every time someone looks at you or interacts wirh you.
Past Tense - to pass a threshold, such as a finish line. This happens once.
Is that how you were thinking of it Alex?
I certainly believe it does for me and of course, what's right for me may not work for you. I might be reaching for something you don't want, at least not as a total transformation.
I am feeling my way along this path so I am not ready for GRS yet, and I may never be. But I think I am interested and ready for HRT and am looking into BBL right now also. This is my journey and it may not match yours exactly. 😊
Very interesting. Have you by chance seen a physician to ask what might be causing this? Unexpected bleeding like this could be serious medical condition. If you haven’t done so already, I would highly encourage you to have it checked out.
It’s a wonderful feeling (with the exception of your confrontation). Please be careful when being confronted by irrational and immature individuals like that. You definately don’t want either of you being a statistic.
As I’ve mentioned to you before, I truly doubt you will have much misgendering in public and accept that most people see you as a woman. It’s affirming as anything and never seems to get old. I’m really happy this is happening for you and it’s likely going to continue much more often as you blossom.
My lady meds have seemingly made this even more important...we’ll, for me at least. Sometimes even a single thought can make all the difference. I knew this was true for many if not most cis women but until about a year ago, I had no idea transitioning would change things so dramatically in a trans woman.
