Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Can you tell me more?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Hi. Sorry about late reply. I'm very nervous. Also if there's a time difference, I'm in the UK and it's 10:20 am where I am now. So I just want to say that I feel that I have gender dysphoria. I am biologically female but I've always felt like a boy, and I'm uncomfortable with my feminine voice and appearance. I'd just like to know how I can get a diagnosis if possible?

I'm on Mountain Time USA.

It is fairly straight forward for you to begin the process of physically transforming from a female to a male. Unfortunately, it take some time -- often years -- and you have to jump through a bunch of hoops...

Here is where you can start the process through the NHS:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/gender-dysphoria/treatment/

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

I wish you the very best on your transition :)

the process sounds a bit daunting, but I've looked into the treatments and I feel ready to start hormone therapy. Can you prescribe testosterone directly or do you make referrals? Thanks very much :)
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 6 days ago.

We can not prescribe medicine online.....it is against the law.

Your GP can refer you through the NHS system or you can start the process though the link I gave you above.

I wish you the very best in your journey.

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter.
