While we have no capability to do studies on males, estrogen levels, and breast cancer, we believe this is something that has been studied in medicine already. It’s our understanding that breast cancer is extremely rare in males of any age.
There is a vast difference between having human estrogen – and having equine estrogen, which is much more powerful and foreign to a human body. Transgender M to F usually use equine estrogen, whereas we offer no estrogen other than your own body producing its own natural estrogen. This would make you more akin to an aging male with higher levels of estrogen. We believe it is safer to use our product with no other hormones.
Transfemme has never had a male customer who developed breast cancer or even a female for that matter either. We know there are risks to changing one’s hormones from male to female – and mainly, to our knowledge, that’s been heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure. We’ve never had a report from a male customer that any of them developed these conditions either.
It is known in medical literature that higher estrogen levels in males can have side effects. Many males develop higher estrogen levels in older age and experience these estrogenic side effects naturally. We have no record of what role overall good health plays in higher estrogen levels and side effects versus say a diabetic.
It would be nice to have some studies in transgender medicine available to read – however, a problem with transgender literature is it will look at equine estrogen which is not a human estrogen and again is much stronger than human estrogen. If you use only our product and make your own estrogen, we would expect that to be safer.
If you want to do your due diligence on the breast cream, you could try running blood work after you have been using it for a few months. We would love to hear what it is doing and see your blood work.
We have several kinds of customers: pre-op M to F who only use our product; pre-op M to F who use our product and other hormones; post-op M to F who use our product only; and post-op M to F who use our product and other hormones. We have more customers who are pre-op when they started with us and got excellent results. Many of them grow better than the genetic females.
How prevalent was transgenderism, hermophidates, gender disorders, and homosexuality before modern times? Do we have more gender bending going on because it is more accepted or because we have more people, or are people made that way? Are people made that way or is it all in their heads from some trauma?
From a biological and anthropological view point real physical factors create gender bending in several forms and are natural consequences of certain stressors in our environment. We believe there are real physiological causes behind transgenderism. That does not mean there are never any cases of other causes but there are physical reasons namely caused by hormones that can create not only a mental feeling of being the opposite sex but also real physiological changes.
The study of population control via breeding patterns is called Population Dynamics. The sex hormones, insulin and cortisol are all involved in the urge to mate as it relates to population dynamics.
Did you know that all fetuses start out as female? At around nine weeks the Y chromosome turns some of the fetuses into boys.
Boys X and Y chromosomes
Girls X and X chromosomes
Did you know mothers under stress can turn their boy babies into girl babies in utero? This is not some theory, this is a proven scientific fact. The amount of testosterone in the mother’s uterus can turn a boy baby with XY into a baby girl by affecting hormone receptors and body and brain architecture. The baby girl can be born not XX but XY and still look and act like a girl.
These girls will be assumed to be 100% XX and no one will know or discover the little girl is a little boy genetically until puberty starts and sometimes later in life. Missed periods, because she has no ovaries and uterus, and has a blind vagina with small testicles inside her abdomen. The testosterone from her tiny testes that, at week nine in utero, should have turned the fetuses into a boy went unread by the androgen receptors.
What is happening and why? Stress on the mother whether it is physical, mental, emotional, light or food promotes testosterone and soaks her body in high cortisol. The cortisol makes mom insulin resistant, which mobilizes blood sugar and takes away her 21-hydroxylase. Because mom has very high testosterone saturating her body and her baby, this makes the baby boy’s androgen receptors retreat. This leaves only the estrogen receptors in the little boy’s body working or a form of testosterone resistance. This works in the same way that insulin resistance happens. Too much insulin floods the body, so they body makes the insulin receptors resist attempts of insulin to get blood sugar into the cell.
The first level of stress can cause boys to be homosexual or to feel they were born the wrong sex and are actually females trapped in a man’s body. These boys got enough cortisol and testosterone in utero to make architectural changes in their brains. Being gay or feeling one is the opposite gender makes you an unlikely reproducer. There was a large increase in homosexuality after the stress of World War II. Mothers who were left during the war and were pregnant had to care for themselves in a vulnerable time. Just as career women who delay childbirth until later in life often have already developed some form of metabolic syndrome, high cortisol and high testosterone.
The second level of stress increases androgen resistance in baby boys and some of them become tall, large breasted women with little or no body hair, many of them go on to become fashion models. These are the XY boy-girls who have no uterus and ovaries but still look 100% female but cannot reproduce. These XY females receive little or no androgens so they are highly estrogenized and seem extremely female.
Both of these scenarios serve the function of cutting back on the population during times of stress. So while you may not be born as an XY looking female, you can very well have had enough cortisol and testosterone saturation to cause brain architectural changes.
Studies show there are at least 32,000 to 40,000 post-op transsexual women in the U. S.. The estimated number of males in the U. S. between the ages of 18 and 60 age is about 80,000,000. Dividing 32,000 by 80,000,000, means that more than one out of every 2,500 males born in the U. S. has undergone SRS. Based on the number of Transfemme customers we have and how they live their lives, we believe that at least 5 to 10 times as many males in the U.S. alone suffer from gender identity issues.
Have you wondered why you feel you were born with the wrong gender? You were a little boy but felt like a little girl? Some people will blame parents, or blame the person saying they have a “mental health disorder.” A prominent PhD psychologist who is a friend has a non mainstream theory. We share it here for you to consider. He believes that people who feel they were born the wrong sex spent many past lives as the gender they feel they should be now. After living many lifetimes as a female and then suddenly being born a male sometimes leaves the soul who incarnated as a male, feeling they are not male and vice versa. Some people do have recall of past lives and past lives are considered a fact by most of the world’s population, Christianity excepted.
Brain-sex theory of transsexualism
Finding a neuroanatomical marker for transsexualism in the brain would not preclude past lives as the opposite gender from being a cause of transsexualism. We know cells follow a biology of belief and having strong feelings can cause physiological changes, both healing and damaging.
In 2002, the brain-sex theory of transsexualism was challenged by unexpected findings published by Chung, De Vries, and Swaab. They observed that significant sexual dimorphism in BSTc volume and neuron number does not develop in humans until adulthood. Most MtF transsexuals, however, report that their feelings of gender dysphoria began in early childhood (e.g., Lawrence, 2003). It is difficult to see how the volume and neuron number of the BSTc could be neuroanatomical markers for gender identity if they have not yet become sexually dimorphic by the time cross-gender feelings have become apparent. Recognizing this difficulty, Chung et al. wrote:
“Late sexual differentiation of the human BSTc volume also affects our perception about the relationship between BSTs [sic] volume and trans-sexuality. . . . Epidemiological studies show that the awareness of gender problems is generally present much earlier. Indeed, [about] 67-78% of transsexuals in adulthood report having strong feelings of being born in the wrong body from childhood onward. (p. 1032)”
Of course there have been some cases were a psychologist or psychiatrist has evidence that abuse of some type may have caused a gender identity problem but many other cases have no apparent cause. No one wakes up and decides they were born the wrong gender, this is a feeling and a belief that exists for those with gender dysphoria; not a choice. Past life feelings could very likely cause transsexualism. This theory will never be accepted by mainstream clinicians but science does not believe God, Creator or Supreme Intelligence exists either.

My name is Victoria and I have been using Transfemme for about 7 months and have had amazing results. I have went from not even an A cup to a solid B which is absolutely wonderful. The changes in my mind have also been a welcome change. But, one thing I have noticed is that the rest of my body changed has more dramatically than my breasts. I am to the point where I can no longer wear male jeans due to the growth in my hips and the new shape my butt has taken (which I LOVE)…
Anyways I’m wondering if there is a way to slow down the growth on the rest of my body and increase the growth in my breasts?…I love your product and am about to run out, I’m just afraid my body will completely feminize but i will remain with small breasts that don’t match with the growth I’ve experienced across the rest of my body. I love your product and would enjoy ordering more, its just I cannot see myself doing that if the outcome of your product are greater than what I had bought the product for to begin with. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been floored with your product, you have changed my body and mind in the best way possible, I’d just like my breasts to catch up. Thank you for any help, you have been a tremendous help for me when it comes to letting out the woman on the inside.
Congratulations on your transformation to womanhood! We really enjoyed reading your TransFemme testimonial letter and we would love to have your photos? Can you share more about how you feel and the process you went through for the benefit of the other Transfemme customers and transsexuals?
Having a female shape is not a side effect, this is what happens to all women. You get hips, and breasts. You could look at your mothers and any sisters you have for an idea of what kind of body you will have? Almost all women have hips slightly larger than their breasts. Of course your age, what you eat and your exercise program all have an effect.
Now that you have a woman’s estrogen and testosterone levels you also have to deal with normal female pattern weight distribution. If you eat a little extra it goes to the butt and the hips! This is what almost all women deal with when they get older and even sometimes young women deal with now. The good news is your larger hips and buttocks should be maxed out by now. It’s not like they grow indefinitely to larger proportions while your boobs stay the same, that would be abnormal.
I think we should look at your diet and other health status. Please send us a copy of your dietary intake for one week, along with photographs of yourself and any blood work you have. We also need to know what your temperature is during the day and when you wake up? If your thyroid is low that could be why you have extra curves/fat on your hips and buttocks. You will also notice any male pattern baldness stops and you will not get a man’s beer belly if you gain weight.
Please also send us a list of any health problems you may have, any medication you take and all supplements you use.

Thanks for replying to me so quickly. Yes, you’re right about the Bountiful Breast/Transfemme breast pills making one feel happier. I don’t know why this is, I found this very strange, approximately 4 weeks after I started taking the male breast enlargement pills, I felt happier, as if I’d won the lottery!! Maybe you know why this is, is it because of what the ingredients are that’s in them? Also, is this the same for biological females or does this just happen to us transgender males (M to F)?
At no time have I experienced any tingling in my nipples as other T-girls have said has happened to them. And my areola haven’t increased in diameter much, maybe 5mm, which is really nothing but then again I have only used these for 23 days. But the fat is now on my breasts whereas before all I had there was skin and bone. I find this absolutely amazing that these little pills can do this to a biological male!
What Bountiful Breast has with these pills is almost as good as having a ‘genie in a bottle’, and that’s something that I’ve always wanted! You are the Magical Male to Female Genie! I am excited to see my results in a few months from now.

Yesterday was a bad day for me. As a T-girl who is just starting out, I am doing a lot of research online to help prepare me for the upcoming changes in my life. These changes have been long, long awaited! I don’t mind telling you that because I feared the judgment of others, I kept silent. I kept this from my parents, siblings and friends. So for 48 years I have lived for others and not for myself. But, no more.
Yesterday, during my research, I was on YouTube searching videos of those who are in transition. I came up on a young (25 yr old) who has been on HRT for 12-14 months. I started crying and I couldn’t stop. I cried for all those lost years, wasted years. If I had only spoken up, I might have gotten the help I needed then, that I’m finally getting now. I hope that I’m not too late to enjoy being a female.
Doing little things help, like getting a manicure/pedicure I did last week and I don’t want to cut these beautiful nails! Yesterday, after my cry session, I went to the salon that did my manicure and had the lady there wax my back and chest. It feels wonderful. Although I’ve only been on Transfemme since May13, 23 days, I believe I look like I have breasts! Thank you for listening, I will continue to post more of my results.
A beautiful voice completes your journey from Male to Female. Male to Female Voice Phonoplasty is a procedure that changes the voice of a male into a female voice in order to help establish your sexual identity. After all the work you have done to achieve a feminine appearance your voice will round out your look and make you seem that you were born in a female body.
Women have higher pitched voices than men because of the frequency and resonance caused by the size of the larynx, throat and mouth. A male voice generally ranges from 100-150 Hz and female voices range from 170-220 Hertz. Men produce low voices because they have bigger chambers of the throat and mouth. This can be changed by a trained medical doctor who performs surgery altering the larynx, pharynx, and the chambers which produce the vocal sound. Your male sounding voice can be altered permanently to a female sounding voice.
There are 5 major methods used for Male to Female Voice Phonoplasty.
1. Cricothyrodiopexy: Cricothyroidiopexy was in the favor surgery from 1983 and 1990. It works by pulling the cricoid and thyroid cartilages forward to a fixed position. It is considered safe because it does not require cutting of the vocal folds. However, it is not being used a lot in United States because it requires an incision in the neck and does not provide long-term satisfaction.
2. Laser assisted thyro-arytenoid muscle resection: This surgery was proposed by the French otolaryngologist Dr. Jean Avitol in 1995, laser assisted thyroarytenoid muscle resection uses a laryngoscope to expose the vocal folds, and reduce the size of the thyroarytenoid, and raise the voice frequency by increasing the tension of the operated area. The advantages are that it is done through endoscope and does not leave a scar in the neck. However, it has limitations in raising the pitch of a very high-pitched voice.
3. Laser assisted voice adjustment: LAVA: Dr. Lisa Orloff of the University of California introduced this surgical method of vaporizing only the mucous membrane of the vocal folds that cause the biggest waves using a laser under endoscope. Thus, it strengthens the mucosal wave the vaporized membranes produce a scar while recovering, and increases the tension of the vocal folds. The advantages are that it is done through endoscope and does not leave a scar on the neck. The disadvantages are that it requires a long recovery period and there are limitations in the increase of voice frequency.
4. Vocal fold shortening: This is a method that raises the voice frequency by shortening the frontal vibrating part of the vocal folds. Dr. Gross has reported in 1999 that the fundamental frequency of a voice had increased up to 201 Hz, and there was an average increase of 81Hz. This surgery can be done under endoscope without incising the neck, and it has brought very satisfactory results in long-term observations. However, it is not available for every patient. This method is currently the most widely for transsexual phonoplasty, and is bringing very satisfactory results when performed with other feminizing medical treatments.
5. Thyroid cartilage and vocal fold reduction: Proposed in 2000, this method incises the anterior part of the thyroid cartilage and reduces the vocal folds. It is available for males with very thick masculine voices and big thyroid cartilages, and it is very effective in getting high-pitches! However, if the vocal folds are excessively incised, it is difficult for the voice to recover.
As you can see there are various methods that can be used for transsexual phonoplasty. However, you need to first check the larynx, the vocal folds, the vocal membrane wave and the movement of the vocal folds through laryngeal stroboscopy. After a general voice check-up, it is important to predict the best voice condition and select the appropriate surgical method. It is very dangerous to perform this type of surgery without checking your voice condition first. A previous check-up must be done to predict the maximum voice condition you will be able to produce and to select the most beneficial surgical technique for your particular case.
Your voice quality is determined by your larynx, the condition of your vocal folds, the chambers of your throat and mouth, and your lips. The vocal folds, larynx, and the chambers of the throat play the most important role in creating the voice quality and timbre. Everyone will have different results based on their genetic limitation, the type of surgery they chose and who performs the surgery, along with the other treatment options used for overall feminization.
Transsexual women have the structures and the chamber of a man, if their fundamental frequency has been raised through vocal fold surgery, the voice becomes neuter as it passes through the chamber. However, the timbre (the resonance) can be modified through vocal treatments and voice rehabilitation by altering as the features of the chamber are self-changeable. When performed with the change in fundamental frequency, it is possible to produce a low sounding feminine voice.
The voice feminization therapy must be provided by skilled medical professionals at a facility where surgical vocal treatments are normally performed. You cannot be assured of getting great results by someone with little experience in peforming voice surgery specifically for transgender people. Your voice feminization therapy should be provided by an experienced voice specialist under an accurate diagnosis.
