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.
