Transition your body, Destroy your mind

Sometimes posts are so good that they need a bigger audience as big as possible. We wanted to share with a few more people who follow TReVoices.


Original Article : Gender Dissent

by, Magpe


“Gender affirming care” is a profitable and growing area of medicine (USD 131.4 million in 2019) but because of the patients’ often undiagnosed mental health co-morbidities, gender ideology's domination of society and culture, and the dubious ethics of the treatments, much is still either unknown or obfuscated. There is a diverse body of information about the benefits and detriments of these treatments but little has been said of the studies which show that induced menopause, inevitable after the surgical removal of the estrogen-producing ovaries (oophorectomy) can lead to young-onset dementia, a devastating condition for the sufferer and a huge burden on society.


It’s doubtful that when a girl or woman first gets the idea that she’d like to become man, she’s thinking about the long term effects on her health. She more likely has the “gender goals” presented in the WPATH Standards of Care masculinization package:


"In FtM patients, the following physical changes are expected to occur: deepened voice, clitoral enlargement (variable), growth in facial and body hair, cessation of menses, atrophy of breast tissue, and decreased percentage of body fat compared to muscle mass.”


The medical interventions (”gender affirming care”) needed to achieve these effects require taking exogenous testosterone in amounts which are dangerous to the female body. (For an interesting examination of the effects, this ‘trans’-directed website is worth checking: https://www.gires.org.uk/should-trans-men-have-a-hysterectomy/). Although she may not have begun her “transition” thinking she’d like to be rid her ovaries, at some point in her metamorphosis the “female to male transitioner” (FtM) will probably have an oophorectomy. Some oophorectomies are for elective or preventative reasons including: to stop gender-invalidating menstruation and unpleasant Pap tests, to lower the need for a dangerous dosage of testosterone, to eliminate the risk of ovarian, uterine and cervical cancer, and to eliminate the possibility of pregnancy.


Whatever the reason, an oophorectomy is not a walk in the park; there are real consequences to removing the estrogen producing female gonads, like an increased risk of cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. This message is often deliberately obscured for the FtM community, though.


Although there may be different side effects after ovary removal in females taking testosterone vs those who are not, all will go through induced menopause. The changes that happen in the female body after natural menopause (average age 51) are known: osteoporosis, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, memory loss and other joys of aging. What happens when menopause is induced in a comparatively young woman? After an oophorectomy, hormones levels drop sharply within 24 hours. These women report more severe symptoms than experienced by women who’ve had natural menopause, including depression and anxiety. Alarmingly, many studies have also shown “significant linear trends of increasing risk” that the younger the woman is when menopause is induced, the greater her chances of developing cognitive and motor impairment.

According to this 2019 study from researchers at the Universities of Toronto and Northern British Columbia :



“… significant cognitive decline is seen when comparing cognition before and after surgery in younger women with induced menopause, particularly in the areas of verbal memory and global cognition. Risk of cognitive impairment is increased for women who undergo induced menopause before age 49 compared with referent women, with risk increasing with younger age at surgery. The earlier the age of induced menopause, the steeper the cognitive decline, particularly in episodic and semantic memory. As well, higher levels of Alzheimer's disease (AD) biomarkers are associated with younger age at surgery. Women undergoing menopause before age 40, regardless of type (induced or POI), have poorer verbal and visual memory compared with women with spontaneous menopause.”


A recent study from Shandong University confirms that menopause before age 40 brings a 35% greater chance of dementia. The implications for the FtM community, who often get menopause-inducing surgeries at a young age (23.9±13.8 years in this 2018 study of 159,736 hysterectomies performed on FtMs between 2013-2016) are serious.


A study from 2012 which compared 2 cohort studies showed that the more gynecologic surgeries women had, the greater the risk of cognitive impairment, and they hypothesized the cause as estrogen deficiency. in fact, from the Danish study: "Hysterectomy with unilateral oophorectomy increased the risk by 110%, and hysterectomy with bilateral oophorectomy increased the risk by 133%". Even without the other complications, cognitive impairment should be enough to give a person second thoughts. Studies show that women can be treated with estrogen to counter the negative effects of an oophorectomy; however this is probably not an option for women trying to pass as men and planning to continue testosterone for the rest of their lives. So, what happens to the relatively young women who are facing rapid cognitive decline?

When dementia afflicts those younger that 65, it’s called young onset dementia. Harder for doctors to catch, it can be mistaken for depression or other conditions, and diagnosis is often delayed. Young onset dementia sufferers lose so much. They might have a young family of dependents they can no longer provide for when they stop working or driving. They have poor overall health. There might be financial responsibilities that can’t be met, like a mortgage or college fund. They may need assistance to perform the basic necessities of life, such as eating, grooming, and understanding their surroundings.

As a woman who underwent a total hysterectomy at the age of 40, due to a BRCA one mutation I can totally concur that even while taking estrogen replacement therapy my cognitive decline and memory issues prevail. My two daughters who st 16&18 claim to be ‘non binary’ havr seen this transform my kind into mush at times. Even with having seen me go through this and still going through it at 46 they still defend these ‘ gender affirmative treatments’ at least for now neither one of them wants to remove their ovaries but they both express interest in double mastectomy and could probably get it done with insurance paying most of it…. Frightening.
