How long do I have to be on female hormones to have a MTF vaginoplasty?

Dr. Reed,  I have been a transgender woman for 7 years and my therapist says I may need to be on female hormones for a year before I can have sex change vaginoplasty.  Thus far I have not taken hormones because I pass very well, and to be perfectly honest they’re costly.   Lolita

Dear Lolita,

We do not specify a patient be on female hormones or testosterone blockers such as spironolactone before considering her to be qualified for transgender vaginoplasty.  Some TG women like yourself are very effeminate in there appearance.  More important is that you realize the surgery is irreversible, that you are emotionally stable, that your therapist considers feminizing vaginoplasty “medically necessary”, and that you have been living 24/7 as a woman for at last a year. Sounds like you’re passing with flying colors.

Please look our web-site, for before and after photos of male to female sex change surgery.  Hope you like what you see.
