Conditions with symptom: 'male and female genitalia'
I am so embarrassed by my large vulva and I feel like it isn't normal at all. I think there is a lack of focus put on the female genitalia and how it should look during the teaching of sex education and because of this I feel clueless. I hate it and it makes me extremely self conscious and I feel like a freak.
I have the same thing, large labia and vulva. I dont like swimming togs and dance/cheer shorts. When you reach 18 y/o you can get surgery. Im 15- hang in there babe xxxx
I am 51 have some breast discomfort in my left breast and my GP has made an appointment to the local hospital, but I’m and my husband are not very happy in me seeing a male consultant and there is no female consultants. Are there female only clinics?
I'm a transgendered male to female and I'm 62 years of age.Like your featured transgendered lady ( Jenny Ann )I had the cosmetic surger just over 2 years ago through the NHS. I have been on hormone patches probably about 8 years.Would it be possible to undergo breast augmentation and facial femanization on the NHS? Although I have female breasts they are very small.Also my face is quite masculine!
A lot of women aren't happy with their faces or boobs...why should a woman, just because she's transgender, get cosmetic surgary... My boyfriend has seen my breasts once in 5 years and I'm so insecure about them I've never even worn a 'low' top...it impacks on my life every single day...yet to have tax payers money spent on giving me 'dream boobs' when kids need education and hospitals need resources to *save lives*...I'd never ask the NHS for new boobs etc... Think about what you're asking.
Welcome to being a female. No you should have to pay for it Like the rest of us!!!!!!!! I have depression linked to my body and how I was born, yet I never was given NHS cosmetic treatment. I was told I would develop normally and not to worry. At 10 years I accepted this that somehow the abnormality would morph to normal. It didnt. Now Im too embarrased. And Id be ashamed to ask for NHS to pay for the cosmetic treatment.
Hi, I am Male 31 years old, I am experiencing quiet a lot of different problems in my bodies. Gynacomastia (male boobs) and its so embrassing that people always tease about as a very good female boobs. Acne scars since my childhod. Rosacea or Red swollen nose (formng lumps and heat boils), patches of vitiligo and excessive hair growth. Not sure if there are people with so many complications. Can i get any help. Thanks Santy
I'm a seventeen year old male, throughout my life I've intermittently experienced a longing to be female. I was raised free of any kind of "you are a boy play with x" or "that's girly" from my parents. I've generally always detested the male physique , facial hair and the like and I've always wanted to be cute. anyway wanting to and knowing how to isn't a problem for me as such, rather knowing how to tell people how I feel. I likely won't change due to there being no real way to get rid of a masculine skeletal structure. But just not bottling it up would be nice so any advice on how to tell people?
Bottling it up never works forever, I would go talk to a GP or refer your self to a clinic and speak with a professional. Once you have a chance to get it all off your chest you will find it easer to talk to family etc and not run the risk of loosing your cool. Tell them face to face, write them a letter or even just a text message (Though would probably say you need to talk about something important with them rather than saying it there.)
hi im a female as i was born with inside testicals but its letting out male sperm should i be worried?
Hi , my mum was abused by a dentist when she was a little girl and therefore has avoided the dentist for most of her life. Its only as I entered my 20's did she break down and tell me her reason. Her teeth are in a really bad state and Im petrified its so unhealthy for her ( shes in her late 60's) I am desperately trying to find a FEMALE NHS dentist in the local area to try to help her feel comfortable as a male is a no go. I have looked but am struggling. Can you point me to a website or anything that may help so i can find a female NHS dentist in Liverpool/ Merseyside/surrounding areas? thanks
When I shave my genitalia area then I get red spots and I become itchy and sore for a few days. Should I try waxing or something because I like to be hair free down there but I can't stand the itchiness?! xx
Never shave, Always wax! It take ages for the hair to grow back and when it does the hair is less coarse and sparse. Also, no spots or itching.
I had the same problem. Try and use a hair removal cream such as 'Nair'. It is quick, pain free and cheap. Very affective just be careful of your extra sensitive area. Hope that helps!
I too have what I think is a skin tag by my vaginal area for 2 weeks now, and have noticed clear discharge, I don't know what dr to see about this, but know I would prefer a female to see it. My GP won't have any appointments until after Christmas, and my OB/GYN is male. I am wondering about just going to a dermatologist who accepts my insurance. Can anyone just tell me what to do? Thx!
Hi Maureen, I would advise you to see your Gp if there is discharge Regards
