Can you transition from female to male? For individuals transitioning from female to male (transgender men), medical treatment includes hormonal therapy with testosterone. Gender-affirming surgery includes “chest” surgery, such as mastectomy, and “genital” or “bottom” surgery, such as hysterectomy, oophorectomy, vaginectomy, metoidioplasty, and phalloplasty.
How long does it take for male to female transition? Some of the physical changes begin in as little as a month, though it may take as long as 5 years to see the maximum effect. For example, men transitioning to women can expect A-cup and occasionally larger breasts to fully grow within 2 to 3 years.
What is transgender transition? Transitioning is the time period during which a person begins to live according to their gender identity, rather than the gender they were thought to be at birth. While not all transgender people transition, a great many do at some point in their lives. Gender transition looks different for every person.
What is the best age to transition from male to female? The Endocrine Society recommends that they wait until age 18, but because more kids are transitioning at younger ages, some doctors are doing these surgeries earlier on a case-by-case basis.
