You are not alone.

Up to 20% have regrets about their “sex change.” Sex change procedures are not effective, say researchers. Ten to 15 years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate is 20 times that of comparable peers.
Regret is NOT rare. See the evidence.

Here we reach out to those considering detransitioning.

Hormones, surgery, regret:
I identified as a transgender woman for 8 years

My name is Walt Heyer and in April of 1983 I had “gender reassignment” surgery. At first I was giddy for the fresh start. But hormones and “sex change” genital surgery couldn’t solve the underlying issues driving my dysphoria.

I returned to identifying as male more than 30 years ago. I learned the truth: Hormones and surgery may alter appearances, but nothing changes the immutable fact of your sex.

I met a wonderful woman who didn’t care about the changes to my body, and we’ve been married for over 25 years. Now we help others whose lives have been derailed by sex change.

Get psychological help

So many people who change genders realize later that abuse in their lives contributed to their gender distress feelings. Changing genders is not the proper treatment for overcoming childhood trauma or abuse. Find someone who will address the underlying source of your distress without prescribing hormones or surgery. Avoid those who are “transgender cheerleaders” and advocate for transition. 

The law is on your side

Employment law protects you as you go back. Legal identity documents can be changed back.
