There is no shame in questioning your gender identity or taking the necessary steps to discover the truth about your gender. Everyone deserves to be happy with who they are, and for transgender women, there are concrete, actionable steps you can take to get there.
If you or a friend is looking to explore this significant part of themselves, read on for some helpful information.
What is Feminizing Therapy?
Feminizing hormone therapy involves pills, creams, and other products that contain elements that trigger a hormonal reaction in your body. This hormonal reaction can enhance female secondary sex characteristics (breasts, hair, skin.)
If you are a transgender woman, Transfemme® feminizing hormone modulation therapy can make you look and feel like a woman. This is because your body, from head to toe, matches the gender you identify as. (This is why feminizing hormone therapy is also referred to as gender-affirming hormone therapy.)
Feminizing hormone therapy includes different types of medication. The two most common are testosterone blockers and estrogen boosters. Human bodies typically have certain levels of testosterone and estrogen (males have more testosterone, females have more estrogen.) Transfemme® feminizing hormone therapy changes your hormone levels such that your body’s estrogen levels get a boost as you aromatize your testosterone into estrogen.
It’s important to note that a “full” feminizing hormone therapy is not required of all transgender women. Likewise, you do not have to “pass” as a woman to live comfortably as a transgender woman, a sissy, or a T-girl.
Some transgender women opt only for breast enhancement pills, which soften their skin and improve their hair. Some make it a goal to transform their whole bodies to look and perform as women in society but still do not decide to undergo sexual reassignment surgery. There’s no one way to live a transgender life – all are welcome and celebrated.
Benefits of Feminization
Relieves gender dysphoria
Gender dysphoria refers to the stress that one feels as they cope with the reality that their appearance doesn’t match the gender that they identify as. With feminizing therapy, your physical attributes can match the gender you feel you are, which can resolve any emotional conflict you feel around that.
On that same note, emotional conflict can lead to much other related stress. It can affect your self-esteem, how you behave around or interact with others, how you are around your partner or family, and more. For example, making your appearance match your gender identity can help you have a stronger sense of self.
Improves sexual satisfaction
When you’re more self-assured and can perform as the gender, you truly identify as you’re better able to communicate your sexual wants and needs with your partner. From identifying certain physical limitations to exploring kinks and fantasies, sex becomes a more liberating experience.
Feminization improves the overall quality of life.
