What is FTM Transition?
FTM transition means the procedure of starting the physical transformation from a female body to a male body through hormone replacement therapy and multiple surgeries such as top surgery, bottom surgery, facial surgeries, and voice changing surgeries.
Before starting the hormone replacement therapy, we must visit a professional physiatrist to have a certified letter of having Gender Dysphoria. You can tell the doctor if you have other mental issues such as anxiety, depression, etc. Then, you can start finding trans friendly endocrinologist who will follow the hormone replacement therapy procedure.
The endocrinologist refers to some medical tests which ensure your blood level and other health charts as well. You should tell him before taking hormones if you have any other disease.
Before Top surgery, you can pass your FTM transition through chest binders, STP packers, packing underwear, etc.
Chest binders decrease chest dysphoria and Top surgery removes chest dysphoria permanently.
