Ohio student who uses an Imgur username Selgal has shared intimate photos of her transition from a man into a woman, and the eye-opening images provide additional information about what happens to a body during hormone replacement therapy HRT.
Selgal has documented 17 months almost 1,5 years on this process and provided personal comments about the way she felt throughout her gender transformation. HRT involves taking hormones attributed to gender together with other medications. Those medications include estrogens and antiandrogens male-to-female or MTF transformations and androgens like testosterone female-to-male. In trans women, this therapy may distribute fat to the hips, reduce the size of their reproductive organs, lessen muscle mass and power, increase breast size and limit the growth of facial hair.
To maintain the effects, transgender people have to continue HRT therapy throughout their whole lives. Anyone can write on Bored Panda. Start writing! Follow Bored Panda on Google News!

I'm glad she finally got what she wanted!
It must be really hard to live in a body that doesn't match your soul This comment is hidden. Nobody tells men that they are prettier when smiling, nor do they have to smile to be considered as handsome. When they feel more like grumpy face, it's cool. I know nobody wants to insult, but demanding women or people to smile more is exhausting, and sets under pressure to please. I frequently smile without a concrete reason to, just to improve my mood, but many resist the clinical use of such a "false" smile. You look like a woman, and a grown woman doesn't have to smile all the if she wants to be taken serious.
Well when I typed the comment I didn't mean anything bad, sorry if I looked like a chauvinist. We know you don't mean any harm. That just makes it harder for us to gather the nerve to explain why it sucks. As someone with life-long, treatment-resistant, sometimes severe depression, the pressure to SMILE is overwhelming. I hate being told I'd be prettier if I could lie more convincingly, getting hit with the sledgehammer of happy: My brain is ripping itself apart, and all I want is a pint of ice cream, not a reminder of how unsightly it is to venture into public.
After understanding the psychology behind the recent measles outbreaks though, I've actually begun hiding less during episodes so that other people SEE the suffering.
It's very easy to dismiss something when you never see the reality. I just calmly explain through the tears that, even with treatment, this is normal for me. Then I pay for my ice cream and go back into hiding. For that one moment, someone saw my reality.
And I defeated another bout of agoraphobia. Men are more beautiful when they smile too, so it's not a chauvinist comment. The point is the beginning photos show a sad person, the end photos a happy person. Beauty and happiness shines through the smile.
Welcome back to the 50's, this is not flattery, it is insulting to tell someone how she would look more beautiful than she already is no? This was clearly not intended to insinuate what you claim it did and you are grasping at straws in order to have a reason to insert yourself as the center of attention. Go troll somewhere else.
