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 have this lump that hurts when I touch it ...

Okay so I have this lump that hurts when I touch it on my vagina. I have been on testosterone for almost 3 years now. I also experienced appetite loss and a little bit of bleeding when I pee. I am freaking out. I am seeing my doctor on the 26th which is almost a month of waiting. I don’t want to go to the clinic because I’m trans and the ressources are pretty horrible outside of Montreal and I have generalized anxiety. I now it’s too quick but I think it might be ovarian cancer so double the freaking out. Have a good day!


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?


How can I get castrated? What are the effects of ...

I have always hated my male organs, starting as early as age 12. How can I get them removed? What are the effects of castration? Will I become an « eunuch »? I have discussed this issue online, but I would like further information. I have not had any other surgery before.
