hi there, i'm new to the group as i've just registered...in my early years i felt a bit gender neutral but dressed as a guy (I'm biologically male), i loved the colour pink (still do!). when i was around 11 years old i felt as if i had to try and be a guy (mentally), i sort of succeeded at this until a few years ago, when i was about 20 i felt that it wasn't right for me and i reverted to my more feminine mindset.

Other things during my earlier and then teen years were (and still are) that I felt that my hips should have been wider (i don't know why, it's just how i felt/feel that i should look). Along with the wider hips, part of me has wanted to wear simple (basic skirts/dresses) womens clothes since primary school (1988 - when i was 6). A partial conclusion i've come up with in terms of my identity is that i'm basically a tomboy/androgyne in thought (but not body yet).

Also, does anyone have any ideas if it's possible for me to take hormones in smaller doses to feminise myself a little?

sorry if this post was long winded, hope you all are having a pleasent day :-)

I highly recommend speaking to a therapist or other professional for real advice on this. If you are considering hormone therapy, you need a professional to help decide what is right for you.
