i have had these feelings since I was a teenager. i used to sit in class and wonder how it felt to wear a skirt and underwear everyday. then when i was old enough i began to buy and wear womens clothing. everthing from underwear to tracksuits. i use women's face cream and deodorant it feels right. i hate havibg to wear male clothing and act like a bloke when i go out with friends. at home i act and live as a girl. i exercise as a woman. it hurts that i cant be one.

Brief Answer:
Brief answer..I advise you to get your harmone levels checked and karyotypy

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
I have gone through your follow up query and understand your concern towards your symptoms since you are a teenager... I would suggest you to get your harmone levels checked and karyotypy done
It could be gender identity problem in which psychotherapy sessions can be given... which includes a trial period of around one year to lead life in the gender which the individual prefers to be with.... like dressing up like a girl, being in company with girls and behaving like a girl in your case
So this helps you too to get a clear idea that how far you can get acclimatized to the preferred gender
Then it can be treated by harmonal therapy and reconstructive surgeries including lifestyle changes etc
So, I would suggest you to consult your doctor regarding these details and follow accordingly
Hope this information would be helpful
Thank you
