Hi everyone

This is my first post here - I hope it's in the correct 'circle'. I am a lesbian who desisted from transitioning after sitting on the waiting list for the GIC in the UK. My main reason for desisting was the unbelievable fact that it was so hard to find information on the long term side effects of FTM surgeries and hormone therapy. As I have PCOS, my testosterone levels are 3x that of other women my age, and my lifetime risk of a heart attack is twice my peers. The idea that the smaller female heart could cope with such huge levels of testosterone seemed crazy to me.

It was only when I came across, essentially, tales of woe, that I realised I could not go through with it, which lead me to realise how terrifyingly bad my internalised misogyny had become, that I could discount the risks and go through with something like this in my 20s.

The only problem is that the tales of woe are not that easy to find, are research scant, and not widely shared, especially if you move in the r/ftm or r/traaaans (or however many aaas it is!) circles. So I hope this is okay, but I'd like to create a post about these side effects and the devastating consequences that girls and women are experiencing, and maybe someone else will stumble across it and make a more informed decision. Some will be anecdotal as I cannot find studies (due to the fact that TRAs quash studies so frequently).

TESTOSTERONE 'T' THERAPY

Testosterone therapy is not safe for even MEN to take, one study of nearly 3000 men showed a 50% increase in heart problems - Men have 50% increased risk of heart attack

Testosterone therapy 'advances bone age in children' (as some under 18s are currently being prescribed, or buying testosterone online) - advanced bone age in children - Bone damage

Testimony of a woman on testosterone for over three years; she experienced, amongst other things, "High blood pressure in hypertension stage one, Glaucoma developing from ocular hypertension (from hormone fluctuations), Eye twitching/Dryness/Seeing spots & flashes, Migraines (1-4 times a week), Debilitating body aches, Sciatic leg pain that would wake me up, Chest pain/Shortness of breath/Heart flutters/Palpitations, Severe uterus cramping, Vaginal atrophy, Constant dizziness, Scalp soreness/tenderness from rapid hair loss, Protein in my urine during pee tests, Rise in bad cholesterol on blood tests, depression, emotional changes" - Testimony of 3+ years on testosterone

Blood levels of testosterone can lead to increased of risk of type 2 diabetes - Study on diabetes risk and hormone levels in women and men

Losing almost all hair within a month and developing diabetes - r/detrans losing hair and diabetes

Incontinence on testosterone - Anecdote on urinary incontinence, a further anecdote of 'drip incontinence' - r/detrans incontinence anecdote

Buck Angel (one of the oldest FTMs I have come across, certainly seems to have been on testosterone the longest), had vaginal and reproductive organ atrophy which caused a deadly infection, nearly killing them - NSFW (GORY) Buck Angel post about reproductive atrophy

Detrans woman developed fatty liver and pain after 7 yrs on T - r/detrans fatty liver

Severe pain at the point of orgasm, further reducing sexual function - Testosterone causing pain at orgasm

Detrans woman describes seizures, unpleasant body and genital odour, migraines, poor blood circulation from thicker blood that causes numb/cold hands and feet - r/detrans seizures, migraines etc.

I often see it touted that heart attack risk for FTMs is 'just like that of a cis male' on r/ftm. That seemed like a totally ludicrous suggestion to anyone who understands how anatomy works - women and men's hearts are different in scale, and the arteries and ventricles reflect this. Testosterone thickens the blood, which means the heart has to work much, much harder. FTMs actually have DOUBLE the risk of a heart attack as quote unquote cis men, and quadruple that of women. FTM heart attack risk double that of men

Testosterone causing brain damage after just 4 weeks, and shrinking parts of the brain responsible for language. On a personal side note, having seen what brain cancer does to a person's command of language, this is not too dissimilar. - Study on testosterone causing damage to female brain after only 4 weeks - another study showed similar results in verbal fluency tests - 1995 study on testosterone influence on brain function for verbal fluency.

Further brain issues found in a 2016 Dutch study on FTMs after only 10 months on testosterone - Dutch 2016 brain structure study

Eye pressure and pain (in additional to prev. mentioned gluacoma risk) - Eye pressure r/detrans anecdote

Women have smaller joints than men. The sudden increase of muscle around these joints can cause impingement, thoracic outlet syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. - Carpal tunnel anecdotes aplenty on r/ftm, Carpal tunnel issues dating back to 2003

Vulvadynia (unexplained shooting pain in and around the vulva, trust me... you don't want this), seems to occur more in women who have PCOS and naturally produce more testosterone. Sure enough, others have mentioned it on r/detrans "It has permenently left me with vulvodynia and clitorodynia. My cortisol levels are so high doctor thought I might have brain cancer or adrenal abnormalities ." - Chronic shooting pain in genitals and cortisol issues anecdote

FTMTF describes near death experience from testosterone screwing their blood pressure, then lowering their cortisol so much they went into a coma - r/detrans coma from low cortisol

Enlarged cystic ovaries and psychosis - Amazing article from 2018 about FTM hormone therapy

I do remember reading somewhere that FTMs on hormone therapy had a 12% rate of psychosis or something similar, but cannot find the link. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, please let me know!

Anecdotally, as other users have observed (been a lurker for a while), transmen seem to die or become cripplingly ill a lot younger than average. I've read stories of transmen who have died in their early 60s or late 50s. I will update this if I remember the name, but there was an FTM writer who wrote about transhealth, and died in their 50s, from a heart attack. There is also the tragic case of 'Nathan', who was allowed to die age 44 after a 'three failed sex change operations' - FTM ends life at 44 after failed operations

TRANSGENDER FTM SURGERIES

Nipple necrosis (where the tissue dies and falls off) - Chest surgery risks

Numb chest, nerve hookup delayed, itching - Anecdote on what the period immediately after surgery is like

Anecdotally I have read some cases where the nerves never fully hook up, and there is permanent numbness, tingling or under the skin itching. Again, will update if I find more sources on this.

Abcesses not healing, having 20+ surgeries and still not getting to the required 'place' - 20th surgery due to huge complications

Eight malpractice suits against Dr Curtis Crane, who left women with bleeding or rotting parts of their arms sewn to their pelvis, without the ability to properly urinate and no sexual function whatsoever - 8 malpractice suits that, like 90% of malpractice suits against the medical industry in the USA, never get to trial.. wonder why

WARNING GRAPHIC. ALT phalloplasty, where 40% of it rotted off, left the patient in a wheelchair for 7 months and with no sexual function, no ability to urinate and needing 'leech therapy' to help with blood flow - NSFW GRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHS AND STORY

I am trying to find the link to the story I found where feces started building in an FTMs scrotum as their surgical complication, will add as soon as I can.

Anecdote of FTMs losing the entire neophallus post phalloplasty operation At least one FTM has lost their entire neophallus

Wearing a diaper due to bowel issues post phalloplasty - NSFW post phalloplasty incontinence diaper

Phalloplasty left this patient with an ileostomy - Ileostomy and psychological effects of phalloplasty. This patient posted later that they 'I fucking regret the fuck out of that shit.I thought I could take on the world, I thought I could fight every person’s battle who had horrible complications—I thought that’s what I was doing with this law suit. I was also told that by being truthful, I would ruin the idea of this surgery for many people to come after myself. NO. In order to truly help, I feel as if I need to be truthful, with myself first, and then others. It’s taken me a while to be honest with myself, but it’s made me so, so, so much happier. ' - Facebook post. 33 surgeries in total later, they had the ileostomy removed. -Bag removed

Rectal fistula from phalloplasty -Just a facebook post, not nsfw

I will add more as I come across them. Please post any anecdotes, or links to studies, that you come across. I'm hoping that if even one woman or girl comes across this, it may save her health problems in the future.

Thank you, I hope the links all work fine as it is my first post!

You mentioned testosterone thickening the blood.

The kidneys filter our blood. I’ve read cases such as the FTM having kidney failure, not telling her doctors she’s a woman and thusly wasted their time when they couldn’t figure out why she wasn’t getting better. They eventually found out and she had to have a kidney transplant.

Personally when I found this fact out, it incensed me. I do need a kidney transplant myself (I’ve been on the list for two years waiting for a match) and to hear that someone, who basically intentionally fucked up their own kidneys with hormones that aren’t meant for their body, got a kidney transplant ahead of me (whose kidneys have been shit since birth).

And she blamed her doctors for “not knowing how to treat trans patients” when she was the one who lied and put her life at risk.

Hi Sinead

So sorry to hear that. I had a quick google - was this the case you were discussing? - https://thebodyisnotanapology.com/magazine/the-amazing-failing-body-being-a-trans-person-with-kidney-disease-2/

It's full of so much bad science I can't quite believe it... "First, most men do not get kidney disease. I (as a transgender man) take hormones to synthetically achieve the appearance and chemistry of a cisman. The testosterone that I take is no different than what most men produce and what some cismen take to regulate their hormones. Testosterone does not cause kidney disease or all men (trans and otherwise) would have or develop it. "

Not sure she's aware that women are not supposed to take cross sex hormones, and her body is not male? Every single organ in her body is female, and designed to work with female 'chemistry'. And that the once a week intramuscular hormone dump is not comparable to what men naturally produce, and does not spike like that 56 times a year.

That is extremely frustrating for you. I hope you get your transplant ASAP.

Yup.

She’s so deluded she’s on a planet beyond Pluto.

Yes, men get kidney disease. I’m sure the men outnumbered the women on the transplant ward I stayed in (for 4 months). They certainly outnumbered the women in the dialysis wards. I saw more men than women in the renal ward.

I have a friend who works in urology and he says that women are more likely to have chronic, but milder kidney issues and men are more likely to reach full kidney failure. A quick google search seems to confirm this. I wonder how much of that is related to body chemistry, and how much is related to how men are generally less likely to get medical treatment in a timely manner?

More women get kidney disease but men are more likely to reach the point where they need a transplant if they get it.

Just wanted to add, I was 37 and pregnant when I had kidney failure. I hardly saw women younger than me in the wards, especially while getting dialysis (they were mostly women in their 60s/70s).

There were men my age in the wards.

First, most men do not get kidney disease

No, but you’re not a man. That’s the problem. Men’s bodies were developed to handle testosterone better.

What a stupid, stupid woman. I can’t even feel sympathy at this point.

Thank you for posting! I'm so glad you are here with us and safe from harm. I hope you can find peace and liberate yourself from the burden of internalized misogyny.

Resources like this are incredibly important! Not only do we have limited data on the long-term side effects, but it seems like a lot of people are trying to sweep the dangers under the rug. I had no idea about many of the side effects and risks that you posted, and I'm sure I'm not alone.

Slightly off-topic, but I've seen a disturbing trend on Youtube where young transitioners discuss serious complications they have had while completely dismissing them. There was a young TIF I saw who seems genuinely sweet, I found them through a video about how they almost died from top surgery and had a very long painful recovery with many setbacks. They talk about needing blood transfusions, being laid up in hospital, serious infections, and internal bleeding for almost an hour while constantly reassuring that what happened to them never happens and not to worry about it.

Hi humblebee - I have seen the exact same sort of trend, it is exceptionally odd. "This never happens, except when it happened, but don't let that put you off!"

It lends credence to the idea of trans ideology as a cult, the constant discounting of the bad personal experiences so that others get the same 'treatment' - potentially with the same negative or deadly consequences.

I'd like to find more to add in the section about surgery re: top surgery, because it does tend to be seen as the 'safe' and 'easy' option compared to genital surgery. Do you remember the channel?

Sounds like trauma bonding, honestly. The complications could arguably been seen as a right of passage or induction into the cult. They all suffer together and think it makes them stronger.

I could see having that attitude if whatever happened to you was rare. Kind of like a “hey, look at this really rare medical issue I had.” But this doesn’t seem to be rare.

I know someone who recently had their uterus removed (they’re a FTM) and the surgeon fucked up, putting them in the hospital for a month.

That's the thing, I so rarely see 'smooth' transitions without moderate/ severe hiccups. And yet the 'this never happens' stuff persists...

Here's an article on the long-term consequences of steroid use in teenage girls.

Health consequences of PEDs continue to plague ex-East German athletes

I peaked as soon as I heard about teenage girls getting prescribed ACTUAL GOD DAMNED STEROIDS in pursuit of an impossible fantasy.

Brilliant article (horrifying contents but great source of info, thank you!)

Thank you, this is very comprehensive. Saving this post for future reference!

Wow, this is amazing! Have you thought of getting this published on FeministCurrent or 4W? This really needs a broad hearing!

Thank you very much - I wouldn't know how to go about that, but I'd be open to any info being copied over for sure!

If people know who SciBabe is, she posted a few days ago that her brother Leo passed away in his sleep at 40 years old. In the pictures she posted it is pretty obvious Leo was a TIF. I wonder if SciBabe will look at the science of cross sex hormones.

Hi - just looked up and absolutely a TIF. So desperately sad. :(

I wonder when we will start looking into this as a matter of absolute urgency.

[–] Eava 12 points

It's been 10 years since Chaz Bono was on Dancing with the Stars. My guess is we're going to see a wave of women die like this in the next 5 years, and the medical malpractice cases will start snowballing.

[–] Tnetennba 9 points Edited

I don't mean to be flippant about someone who's passed away, but I feel like Leo is a very common TIF name. It's uncommon for actual men to be named Leo in English speaking countries and it references both astrology and Leo DiCaprio, an actor loved by weird people.

I feel like TIFs out themselves just as much as TIMs with their name choices, but that's a discussion for another post.

I absolutely agree. If nothing else gives trans identified people away, their weird name choices absolutely will. TIFs tend to pick names that are still so...female somehow lol. TIMs tend to pick fairly normal names that are spelled very abnormally, or a name that's just absurd in every way possible.

This is a fantastic resource - thanks so much for posting! Wonderful first post :)

Clicked the diaper picture, you can 100% tell that is a female-bodied person in the "from behind" picture. The way she balances, the waist, the shoulders, the hips--it's all just yelling "woman!" at you.

I can't read all the gore stuff but man, the ileostomy etc. are just rough to read.

To quote my mum, don't fuck with nature, there'll be hell to pay.

Hi everyone, I've found more things I had bookmarked and added (seizures, coma, sexual function issues). Thank you for your comments so far!

Scott Newgent is very honest about everything that went wrong. The exposed arm nerve, the failing heart and lungs, all of it.

Very good point! Unfortunately because Scott's twitter has been suspended/removed I can't remember where the articles were posted about these dreadful complications.

Scott's website full of info about what happened to Scott as well as many other resources and a contact form to reach Scott directly are here: https://www.trevoices.com/

Also, Scott is looking for volunteers, and would probably be glad to post any resources you have found that aren't already on the Trevoices website.
