Specific_Questions: Well first, I want to remove both testicles,But was wondering will this make me more femmine by doing this, with out testerones I understand taht my other parts also produce the hormone.I do know that the body needs hormones to equal out the system, so as soon as these are removed could i start extenisive estrogen program, also one more question, is any of the skin that the testicles are wrapped in used for furthering my surgery, to become a female, or is it just wasted skin? thanks for the info, your web site is quite promising, thank you, Janice

Good morning Janice,
Thank you for your interest in what we do. You can have orchiectomy without any additional procedure for the time being. You will need 2 letters of therapy clearance as mentioned in the attached. If you are interested in hormones to accelerate secondary sexual characteristics, we do that.
When testes are removed there is some feminizing effect, but usually not that impressive as your skin may get softer, you’ll shave less, there may be very early breast growth, but not to be compared with one breast size smaller than your mother or sister when you are on proper estrogens for 2 years.
Our fee is 600 per year as you will need to be followed every 3 months for a while. Laboratory testing and your selection of a pharmacy for medication is additional.
The advantages of orchiectomy are reduction in the amount of estrogens you need to take daily, less toxicity and some savings. Of course, some bulge reduction. Most MTF patients who anticipate vaginoplasty will save their scrotal skin for labia formation and vaginal depth extension.
After reading the attached, if you believe I am the doctor or you, please initiate a consultation over the phone with our office by sending us your name, address, and telephone number in an envelope along with a check for 250. We’ll
get started ASAP. We’ll have a lot to talk about.
Please keep in mind. This November is a promotional month. Call the office and speak with Anne our amiable office
manager for details.
