Motivations before and outcome after Transmen gender confirming surgery

Taken from Journal of Sexual Medicine, volume 14, Number 12, December 2017.

Authored by Tim van de Grift and group from the Netherlands. 21 transmen followed at least a year after phalloplasty or metoidioplasty were asked what motivated them to have surgery.  100% said “gender confirmation.” 78% wished to enable sexual intercourse, and voiding while standing was reported in 74%.  Following surgery the genitalia were used more during sex, 78% vs. 31% before. Patients reported more pleasure, confidence, and less passivity.

Voiding symptoms were notably higher in those who had urethral surgery.
