His post history is wild. He claims he has dysphoria because he didn’t look “uncomfortable” enough in baby photos, because apparently that’s a thing for TIPs.

It’s funny how blatantly they lie though. Maybe I live under a rock, but I’ve never heard of prescribing hyoscyamine for menstrual cramps (especially not for someone who has no uterus)? His GI said the pain is located near the bladder, which hyoscyamine would be used to treat. His doctors know what’s up lol.

Dude, you’ve been ingesting wrong sex hormones for 16 months, those aren’t “period cramps”, you’re just destroying your body.

Going on birth control really helped ease my cramps. Has nobody suggested this to him? I wonder why.

Maybe he is trying to get pregnant?

Lol. You are right. Taking birth control certainly will not help him get pregnant.

These cretins. I'm currently having ovulation spotting and cramping. They can fuck right off with their colonization of our experiences.

Having body cramps is…. Life. Or, maybe all the hormones are jacking your body up with our fucking with you, just putting that out there…

Having uterine cramps is menses.

I loathe these idiots.

I have this problem, too. Often I think my uterus is up to no good, but what's really going on is I have gas.

I have a really funky cycle and often have my period for weeks at a time. I also have digestive issues. There are days when I’m not sure which is the culprit immediately.

He is a proven liar. I doubt he's having any pain or cramps at all, he's making all of this up.

He's clearly just fishing for advice on how to better LARP menstruation.

We need to handmaiden him some wacky ones

Do you feel like giving all your money to an internet stranger? That totally happens to me too!! Tell ya what, you send me your money now and I’ll return it, with all my money, in two weeks when I menstruate. Then we will have sleepovers and do each other’s hair in a nightie.

If you get PMS symptoms, how intense are they?

Currently on my third day of cramps and in bed with a heating pad. I've seen a lot of transfems mention having PMS symptoms, but I don't often see anyone mention cramps. Wondering if you get cramps, how intense are they and have you seen a doctor at all for it? Mine tend to fluctuate throughout the day, but can be really painful for me at times. I've tried several remedies and few have had any effect. Most recently I was given hyoscyamine, which sometimes helps, but applying heat tends to be the only thing that gives me relief.

Also, where on your body are the cramps? Every doctor I've seen always checks higher up my digestive track, and the GI I saw most recently pointed out that the pain I'm feeling is actually near my bladder. I don't have any urinary symptoms, so this has left me a bit perplexed.

Can’t imagine why his doctor is checking his digestive “track” instead of his nonexistent female reproductive system.

I keep waiting for male physicians to put a stop to this nonsense but I guess I’m waiting in vain. And forgetting that I’m still talking about males. Isn’t it ironic that the same male physicians who will dismiss a woman with a deadly disease as exaggerating and hysterical will treat a disease state that is impossible with a straight face. Even if the tide turns all of this is going to set women back in hundreds of ways.
