hello all friends
i started MTF HRT, ( (male-to-female) Hormone replacement therapy),
its the second time i do that and the first didn't go will and end me in a hospital !!
but i i can't live like this
so i make up one's mind to start again
the thing is all article or sit's which talking about HRT , says its Required a medical care
so is there such thing in Egypt ??
i cant find any thing about it ?
and i had a bad experience with crashing on a random doctor and asked him to help

    im curious to know, isnt it expensive? and is there enough awareness amongst the medical community in egypt for this or is it considered taboo?

    it's more a taboo, and I do not think that there is a culture that accepts the idea of the existence of community LGBT, and if there any one offering help, that will be on his personal responsibility, and will charge a lot

      thats very sad. i think there are some doctors who do it but perhaps not safely because its not something that is being monitored or properly explored in this region. MIMI is there a possibility you would consider doing this abroad to be on the safe side? or anywhere else where it is acceptable? of course its very expensive but better to be safe..

    • hi i'm salma , y've just known what transgender means and i'm scared of being so because i've always hated my body especially the top part.And i've always wanted to be a man since my childhood :/ . Also i've never felt being a female , i don't know why

    if you're in egypt , then you should see a psychiatric first, if he diagnosed you with ( gender identity disorder ) he'll transfer you to a Medic who'll tell you what hormones to take ( estrogen for MTF - Testosterone for FTM ) and the specific doses you need, you can't just take any medication however you like, HRT ( hormonal replacement therapy ) can be dangerous and have lot of side effects - trust me, i'm a pharmacist and FTM - .
