I’ve been struggling with my gender identity… Is the want ...

I've been struggling with my gender identity for the past couple of months, though I feel like this has been an ongoing thing I never noticed until now. Every spare moment I have I'm questioning who I am, who I want to be, and who I want to be perceived as. The main issue is that I don't feel comfortable being seen as a girl anymore. I've tried using some different pronouns to see how I felt, and it was nice for a bit, but I realized there was still something missing. I think I'm still in a lot of denial over how what's missing is the fact that I want to be perceived as a boy, but I feel like I can't have that, because physically, it's logical that I'm not one. Plus, I'm scared of even considering transitioning, it feels like a huge step that I don't know if I'll ever be ready for. While most of the time I'm yearning to be a guy, there are a few times where I feel okay as a girl. It's just so confusing, and I don't want to stick with something and then regret it later. I also feel like, is the want to be a man a fetishization thing? Because when I see healthy and happy male relationships in books or shows, I feel a sense of happiness from it and can relate to it to an extent. Does that mean these feelings of dysphoria are based on that? Because while it's one thing to put yourself in another character's shoes, I feel like there's a bit more to these feelings than that. Any insight would be really appreciated! Bao

I was assigned Male at birth and I just don’t ...

Hi, I have talked to a Psychiatrist at Interligne saying I didn't feel right in my body. I was assigned Male at birth and I just don't feel male. I feel like I'm in the ''middle'' but leaning towards the feminine side which is my problem. I wish I could stare at myself in the mirror and not feel bad about how I look. I would love to look more feminine in all parts but this is not what I see. The person at Interligne told me to ''Grow hair, shave body, makeup, do my nails, etc.'' but I already do all that in my daily life and still not happy with my body/face. I just told the Social Worker I talk to about this ''problem'' that has existed for me for many years now and they sent me here. I have a family doctor which I don't feel comfortable telling all this and I don't know what to do, I am lost. A request has been submitted for me to meet a psychiatrist I think (It's not confirmed, the Social Worker is working on the demand) What should I do? Jae

I’m unable to reach orgasm… what should I do?

Hey! First of all this is a super website and i'd like to thank you for making it accessible to all. My question is pretty embarrassing but i don't have anyone else to ask to and i'm kind of worried. Since ever i started masturbating a few years ago, i always used the shower head on my clitoris to reach an orgasm because i didn't have to directly touch my private parts or else i would be really uncomfortable. But the problem is that now whenever i feel a bit better and i try to only stroke my clitoris that got to 1 inch after my last growth spurt, it turns me on but only very slightly and i clearly can't reach orgasm. I have a high sex drive so this is frustrating. I'm worried that when I finally get to take testosterone to help with my transition, my clitoris will grow but my sexual desires and sensations won't change and i'll never be able to get an orgasm just by touching myself. Do you think I should be worried and go see a doctor? Thanks a lot!

Should I take hormones to become a girl?

I'm a girl trapped in a boy's body. I've only cross-dressed once, but it was the best feeling of my life! The thought of painting my nails and wearing make-up gives me amazing thrills. Is it a good idea to use horomones (when I'm in college) and completely and legally change my identity so that no one knows that i was John but was always Mckayla?
