Hi Kmat,
I have gone through your query and understand your concern towards your feminine symptoms
I could understand that this might be due to some harmonal changes and Gender identity problem that is causing these symptoms
so, I would like to know some more details about your childhood whether you have these symptoms since then ...and any toddler history playing with female toys etc
Anyway I would suggest you to visit your doctor preferably psychiatrist or I can help you if you can provide all these details
I can advise harmone therapy or psychotherapy including life style changes or surgery depending on the severity and intensity of your symptoms
Hope this information would helps you

Follow-up: i keep having feminine thoughts. i wear women's clothes all 3 hours later
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 Kmat,
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
