I feel feminine now

Since my proatatectomy I have felt very feminine. I think it was in the works before, but now it's what I desire. Does this happen to others? I want to know...

On the other hand, I'll bet the majority of us would say we feel 'less masculine', on our honest days, anyway  ;-)

And I suspect that means much the same!

Hello Bill and welcome to teh site

How long ago was your operation and are you on any hormones.

After almost three years on hormone therapy, I've noticed slight changes in my reaction to things/people; I find it quite interesting; but then, I've long thought that the world would be a better place if men were more in touch with their feminine side!

I'll soon find out if it's permanent.

If you are post prostatectomy before / without hormones, however, then I think it's much more likely to be a psychological thing. As distance between you and the surgery increases, it will likely fade away. But if you find it distressing, you need to seek professional help.

Bill, I’m nearly 12 years now since Dx and I’d say that I’m more sensitive now to feelings, one does get used to the hotties but the cold spells I don’t like.

All this is quite different from "feeling feminine". Bill I needs to explain what he means. HT brings out our gentler side as the testosterone is suppressed, but I doubt that most of us would say we feel feminine as a result!

Likewise. I think my wife would like me to stay on them wether I need them or not.. I always felt I was from Mars, but now more from Venus these days. I think I'm now from somewhere in between. (I know that makes me from Earth)!

Hello Bill, Yes, oddly I find myself in the same situation. I feel like I have the sex drive of a teenage girl and certainly the sexual response of one, I don't mean that I'm attracted to men, merely that an orgasm is as difficult to come by as one.

I have recently taken a couple of surveys regarding the female side of the male brain, and both have come out as me being 90% woman. The wife (oddly) seems to still like the new me.
