    I like crossdressing and I like being a female and I want to have a more feminine look like having a feminine figure and a little bit of bust, but I don’t think I want to get HRT, so is there a way to achieve something like a transition without HRT?

      From my viewpoint you will never be happy with your transition if you do not use HRT. Most trans girls start with Spiro to reduce testosterone. Those that cannot use Spiro have to have their testicles removed. We all want to be female and how can you do that if you have a male level of Testosterone in your system.

      Estrogen can be from pills, patches, or injections.  It will make your skin softer and some hair will not regrow. After the first month I have not needed to shave under my arms. My breast have grown well but there are many trans girls that cannot get adequate breast growth, especially if they are real skinny.  So don’t assume if you start Estrogen those around you will see a quick change in your external appearance.

      Also, neither I or anyone I know that have tried bovine estrogen have seen any results from it. Go the best route and see the therapist and get your HRT letter and get the real hormones.

      But the most important and soonest benefit we receive from Estradiol is on our gender dysphoria. When you have the right type and amount of hormones in your system our dysphoria reduces and it seems our emotions stabilize. Yes we do get more emotional but episodes of depression and anxiety will reduce.

      That is a great article.Thanks for sharing it.

      I live in an area where I don’t feel safe being me, and I have started doing things this article suggested. Even then it is risky.

      During my last session with my therapist, she brought up Low dose HRT. I don’t know if I have the courage to actually do that. Argh!

      I did that for many years and the only thing I miss is my thinner body.  When I started HRT, even though I was warned I would gain weight, I did gain and quite a lot!  Before HRT, I had some fleshy breasts and with the right pushup bra, I could attain some cleavage.  Now that I’m on HRT, I’m now a natural B-cup, and want even more!   I’m not into women with large breasts, but I want them – on me!

      I was wondering the same thing and I found this article.

      Hope it helps 😁

      I just recently realized that I needed to transition, but being gender-fluid, I don’t want to completely move away my male identity because I still identify with it, also.

      Xayum, there is social transition and there is medical transition.  Each have a number of steps to consider, so it’s not clear exactly what you are wanting to do.   I think you should be seeing a therapist to help you with either or both, but I in effect was well down the road to social transition before any medical changes.  In fact that used to be the standard of care to live as the chosen gender for a year before any medical changes.
