I'm not transgender, but I would like to maintain a young and androgynous look because I make a shitty lumberjack type. I know that there are many many ways to mitigate things like facial hair, body hair, etc., but since I figure I've put way more dangerous drugs into my body, I'd ask about hormones.
I've got no interest in estrogen because I don't want tits, but as far as I know, antiandrogens wouldn't give me any, they'd just cancel out the testosterone that keeps the miniscule amount of estrogen produced by all males from giving me tits, and that would take such a long time to kick in that I'd definitely see it coming and stop popping pills.
Can anyone tell me the effects of antiandrogens on the male body without estrogen added? I know what they do combined but I'm not sure what effects come from which drugs. I'd like to know negative side effects too, I'm sure there are some but depending on severity and prioritization they might not be a big deal.
For the record, I'm 21 and skinny, maybe 140 pounds. No medical conditions.
Hello there :) sounds like you need an anti androgen and perhaps incorporate a small amount of estrogen here and there to help prevent bone loss. inhousepharm. does the trick. spirotone is super cheap and I don't think mentioning shaving/plucking/waxing is something worth mentioning. Use lotion! 2x a day all over your body.
Hi Tranchan and anon lurkers :))So I have been taking yada yada for yada yada and it's becoming too obvious that im not a boy. I love the change and I feel comfortable in my skin and regular clothes. In fact, the only time I actually wear male clothes/try to act male is when I'm at work, in public or college. I have to use a brown thingy to cover up my growing boobies, I look fem and unfortunately live from paycheck to paycheck and im so damn scared that i will loose my place, job and be labeled a freak since I live in a small city in fl near alabama. Advice and luv from anon is super kewl and I would love a trans E-buddy or something. ty tranchan <3
I've been wanting to transition for years now and the opportunity where I can begin self medding has finally come at 23 years old. I ordered spiro and estrofem from inhouse, and plan to start ASAP because I'm terribly worried that if I don't start soon I'll be an unpassable hon monster, which I'd rather die than be.
If I do receive a doctor's recommendation to start hrt I'll start shaving the proper way with real razors but for the time being, I'm looking for an electric razor to keep my body hair at bay.
I'm looking for something that would work well for both the private areas and arms and legs. Should I just get your run of the mill foil shaver for men or get one specifically made for women's legs and such?
no expert, but seeing as your hair is still male hair, i wouldn't use a girls razer. Male hair is typically thicker and more course, and a female razor won't cut it quite the same.
Hey everyone, I was wondering if I could get some advice
The situation as it stands:I love to cross dress and my girlfriend likes to fuck me with a strap on. But she says her enjoyment comes more from making me happy. This is great but I'm not sure if that's totally the case. Some times when she has dommed me, she's had this real fire to her. Its amazing. Its like she's totally into it and would rape me if she could. But afterwards she says its a feeling disconnected from her and says it takes too much work to get into that mood.
How do I get her to recognise the fire inside? How do you fire up your partner?
Also she, like everyone enjoys feeling sexy. She says she feels sexiest when she's dressed womanly. The problem is when I'm dressed womanly, she feels less special and like she's now less wanted. Like there's only room for one of each role in her show. I try to make her feel wanted but she doesn't have the best self esteem.
What should I do?
Be her friend. She sees you as a token. Doesn't want to admit it, but it's true. She's troubled by it. Wants to enjoy you as a girl, but is insecure and needs a token male to feel better about herself. Her enjoyment of topping makes her feel shitty because the world tells girls they should feel shitty all the time, especially for enjoying that. To be honest not much you can do. This is one of those things that change with age. When people look back and wonder why they took so long to just be themselves.
I've been on HRT for five years. My T levels have been as low as 130 and as high as 600 ng/l since then, and E's only been around 50-80. Even though I've had female development (tits, skin et al), I haven't had any genital atrophy at all. I've had enough of killing my liver and kidneys just to barely dent my levels, so I'm getting an orchi to end this bullshit once and for all.
I spent five years getting suboptimal results from maximum dosage HRT. Did I fuck myself up permanently, or does the fact that I have tits mean that I'm not totally screwed?

Since you have lot of questions and i have 30 mins at my disposal i am going to answer all.
>how are T levels irrelevant on blockers?
This is a common presumption with most girls, they hope low T levels means the hormone blockers are working well. The truth is a bit complicated. The normal idea is to have a low T but usually FSH and LH levels being low is a good indicator that your body is producing T in lower rates and vice versa, your blood report may indicate a low T but a high FSH and LH implies that your T level is going to shoot up real fast. So mention T level alone is a M00t point. Secondly, SHBG levels also indicate how much of free testosterone and estrogen are available. Normally with high estrogen you will see a rise in SHBG levels. The levels of SHBG will tell you how much of androgens in your body is free and how much is bound.
> How do I know that it's doing its job, aside from these tits?
well spiro is complicated to handle but you have to take a blood report and check for the other 3 levels i mentioned. remember T level alone is unimportant check for the ratio of T to SHBG, this is usually a good indicator.
Hey, thanks for answering my Q's. I'll talk to my doctor and ask if they can look for those on my next labs.
Also, I bit the bullet and just scheduled a consultation for an orchi. I'm past the point of trying to deal with it, and hopefully GRS is in my (probably distant) future, so shit. Not like I'm gonna use these for anything, am I?
Oh yeah, and while I'm here, I've also been told my voice needs work. I have a voice clip of me talking here, do they have a point or am I okay? (It's of me taunting my cat while he's eating.)
Does anyone know a way of growing breasts that won't actually biologically change you into a woman? I really want breasts but don't want to loose having my own kids
I think the only way then would be surgury. Any hormones that would cause breast growth also run the risk of making you sterile. You could have your sperm frozen before going on hormones, that's the other option.
So, here it goes. I've been strait all my life. The last few years though I've really started to like shemales. To the point that its the only type of porn that turns me on anymore. My fantasy is to be fucked by a shemale. I've used toys but never had the real thing. Just wondering what percentage of shemales are into fucking guys. Is it common or do most shemales prefer to receive.
ignoring political correctness and i-art-trannier-than-thou arguments here is the brute essence. Most CDs and TVs will happily bang you. If you want a functional transgirl with real breast and all, then the she may or maynot top depending on hormones. In my personal experience most top girls are only into women and very few will top men most of them time. Additionally, the rate of functional girl who would top is lower compared to the amount of men who would like to be topped. So you have a huge competition there. if getting banged by functional girl is all that you need, then i suggest a visit to the escort.
What about his same problem in reverse?
Alright.. Having never used a board such as this hopefully this doesn't implode..I'm a 26y/o male, grew up in a religious village, straight as an arrow, yadda yadda.. Moving out 6 years ago has been changing me quite a bit -- skip to current arrangement.. Consider myself bi/pansexual -- have never been with a guy, but.. yeah.. Currently have a girlfriend who considered herself a lesbian before me -- but we just work <3 One factor may be that I have never been masculine outside of the factors beyond my control; voice, hair, etc., etc. We've been together a year and our relationship has brought us into my crossdressing and using makeup at home (mainly just to cover facial hair, lip color, and eye liner). So far I haven't been brave enough to actually take this into the public but lately I've been feeling that I should be making little pushes.. Now, I don't associate as a woman or anything, but I have always wanted to have more fem features.. not sure if that's just andro or what but I have also been looking into growing breasts lately.. I don't want to take this too terribly far as I don't want to fully transition but I do want to be able to come across as fem.. If I ever did go through with this I would want to be able to bind myself.. and she's the only one seeing me naked so I don't need super notable curves for public viewing.. Sorry if this seems jumpy by the by.. just typing as facts relay in my head.. On the note of not wanting a full transition.. I've been looking at vitamins and whatnot -- came across a site that seems legit but also low budget.. testaments are good but I just don't know..Really glad I stumbled upon this board.. seems as though a lot of you are more than willing to share thoughts and ideas so I figured I'd give this a go.. In the back of my head I'm torn if this is right -- wanting to change myself but at the same time hide it at times.. be the me I want to be in my personal life but hide myself professionally..
Comment too long. Click here for full text.
so you want to take the androgyny route. The here you go.
As for andro path, i suggest hanging out with the rave/goth groups in your locale, most andros can be seen in those communities and maybe you pic tips.
So... Here goes I guess.I am a bigger guy (280 right now) and I have recently accepted that I am transgender and want to transition. I am working hard to lose weight. I have lost around 90 pounds since last september. I am not done losing weight, I plan to lose at least 100 more pounds(Ideally 150-170). My question to you is: If I start taking medication now while I'm losing weight will my breasts and butt stay the size they are now? I have decent size manboobs and was hoping that they would stay the same size while I am losing weight. My butt is bigger but isn't particularly toned so I need to start focusing on it soon.Picture not related, best one i could find for now.
loosing weight while taken supplementary estrogen is difficult though not unheard off.
Your breast will grow but only around the nipple parts and as for butt. well it's a common knowledge most estrogen develops bigger butt than bigger breast.
How fast do hormones work? Like would i be able to take them for a small amount of time to change my fat distribution a bit more feminine without developing noticeable boobs so that I could pass either way if i wanted to?
well if androgyny is you aim, then don't take blockers, or take low amount for initial 3 months and stop.
whoremoans, work differently for different people. for some facial feminisation is apparent while for some breast growth begins sooner. One cannot really say which takes precedence, smooth skin, facial feminisation or breast growth. the order various for everyone.
Finally if fat redistribution is your main aim, I am sure this has been discussed before, go to the lower end of you BMI, then take estrogen for a while gain weight and then do severe diet and training to loose the weight. cheers.
Do you know any place on the Internet or (which is more propable) on Darknet where I can find typical crossdressing books in PDF version? I mean, tips on some sites are useful and YT is helping too, but sometimes I like to get a complete source in one piece. ;)
Pic related, everyone on any crossdressing pages is recommending Charlie Anders' [i]The Lazy Crossdresser[/i] but I can't track it down in digital version. Amazon isn't a solution, I don't live in country civilized enough to make them send me a copy here. ;)
So, thanks in advance a lot!
So I'm gradually going down the path towards what i'm hoping will eventually end with transition. I've decided to take a appetite suppressant, even though i know it's typically frowned on, but i've read the risks and everything and i think it's going to help. I don't need to lose a ton of weight, so i won't be on it for long. If anyone has anything i really should know that's relevant to transgendered people taking these and not the average person, please let me know. I couldn't find anything that it might have undesirable effects. I plan on following the eating plans that have been posted on here to make sure i don't end up without fat.
The image i put up is my hairline, I'm wondering if that's going to be a problem or if you gals think it's going to grow enough to cover the slight recession. I'm not unwilling to look into methods to stop or restore it, but if it'll grow in fine, i'm hoping i don't have to.
The crown of your head doesn't seem to be thinning and that's a good sign. Your receding hairline may reverse when on a combination of anti-androgens and estrogen, though I've read that regrowth results are very limited.
In my opinion, finasteride is a great anti-androgen (DHT inhibitor) to prevent further hair loss and keep what locks you currently have. In conjunction with using finasteride, you might also want to consider using minoxidil (its brand name is rogaine/regaine depending on where you live) to help regrow lost hair. Applying it on the hairline could promote hair regrowth; though it's recommended for use on the crown and vertex area, it can work on the hairline too.
Offering help regarding appetite suppressants would be stepping out of my domain. As long as there are no drug interactions with HRT and you are otherwise healthy then you should be fine. Contact a professional endocrinologist for more information.
Alright so,I've always had the urge to transition but I, as well as others constantly talk me out of it on the basis of my height. I fear that I may be too tall to really "pass". Pretty much I'm just asking for some other opinions here, I know in the end it's always my choice but it wouldn't hurt to have some insight from the actual community. As of now I'm on the better half of 6"5'. I have a fairly feminine figure/ face already but I worry that my height will just sort of "stunt my growth as a woman" :/ Tips, Opinions?
There are plenty of tall girls who aren't supermodels and who look pretty awesome to me.
I don't think your height will negatively affect your transition. If anything, I've heard that estrogen affects the spine curvature in a way that decreases height without affecting posture. I don't know how true that is as the evidence is anecdotal. I think what makes a noticeable difference is possessing a feminine figure and face (like you say you do), so you're already halfway there.
Moreover, what really matters is having confidence enough to consider other people's opinions and just do whatever the hell you want to do and what's best for you (to paraphrase Robert Downey Jr.)
Oh yeah, by reduced height, I mean by 1-2 inches. Not like a whole foot, that'd be peculiar.
Just wear athletic clothing all the time and say you play basketball or volleyball :)
Hey guys and girls, I just recently found out about TranChan and it has been a great help, but I haven't seen a thread about buying shoes. I know all my sizes and for clothes and whatnot, but I was wondering if you girls had some cheap sites or places to go for shoes. I wear a 10 or 11 in mens, so I would need 12 or 13 in womens which is a lot bigger than most girls feet. Any suggestions on some places. Finding cheap sites is my issue. Thanks! <3
google barefoottess. (too lazy to make a fuxx us url) its great because they cater specifically to larger sizes and have free shipping / handling on returns and stuff. so if something doesn't fit, you can either exchange it for another one or just get a refund without paying shipping.
if you're still in the closet, the box is pretty discreet. oh, and a lot of the shoes are under $100 but still look nice if you're starting out. good luck~~
So, I decided to start transitioning soon and I've done pretty much everything to get myself started but I haven't told my parents yet. I'm not under 18 (I'm 20), so they don't need to sign any medical forms for me or anything, but I just don't know how I would go about coming out to them. I don't really want to skip out on telling them though. Do any of you have any tips for coming out to parents? :3
Since, i am runing out of time to catch a train, I would be brief.
If you have any further queries.....drop a note here, maybe the weekend i would find time to write a detailed explanation,.
I want to make my chest more sensitive and maybe get some growth out of it, but HRT is not an option since I don't want to really become female.Do breast creams work?Anything else?
I'm working on transistioning. Got a bunch of clothes, etc. But i wanna figure out how to make up. any tip? what products should? Also any tip for a more femine figure without hrt yet. As i can not afford it atm
I watch makeup tutorials on youtube for tips. I'd suggest starting with something as simple as the eyebrows, look for an eyebrow shaping guide on youtube (there are plenty). Framing your brows to suit your face makes a noticeable difference and is simple to do.
I would follow what january girl said plus, if you have cash to spare, i would advise you to sit in a mac counter/makeup artist and learn some.
Some of the good products for beginners, i have been told are urban decay and Mac. Also Avene is a good base foundation for all time use , only sold in drugstores in DE. Also I personally prefer bobby brown for a subtle look.
If you want to concentrate on only a few aspects, the as januarygirl said, i would start with eyebrows and eyeliners, followed by camouflage + foundation and cheekbone contourings.
Hope this helps and good luck.
