      It there is even a question, you are not typically Cis then.  You are probably Trans* to some degree.  Try embracing the idea that you cannot check one box (the F or the M) and see where it gets you.  Maybe neither box will do for your life, you may be Fabulous or Extraordinary as far as gender goes. Be ready to celebrate and not fear what you discover, 
    • CyndiRae
      I dunno as an AMAB, If you seem to obsess over what women wear, say,  and do, and it never seems to leave your mind no matter how hard you try, you might be trans.  If you are seemingly jealous of women in all walks of life, you might be trans.  If you want to carry a baby, obsess over menstrual cycles. you might be trans.   If you are called a "girl" or "girly" by others, yet you don't seem to know why, you might be trans.  If you enjoy going out in the world dressed as a woman and being seen this way, you might be trans.  If you enjoy being treated "like a woman" and interacting with others in the feminine role, you might be trans.  Some people have doctors prescribe Estradiol in a low dose and if this medicine seems to enhance your quality of life after a short period of time, you might be trans. A cis male would probably not enjoy E, and the loss of a male sex drive for one example, a transwoman would enjoy these changes, I know I did.  I am sure others will stop by with their thoughts, but wanted to answer this post initially.  I think the best advice I heard and will pass along is to simply "be honest with yourself", once you can push aside all the BS that comes with gender and gender roles in our western world, simply get to the heart of the matter. One gender is not any better than an another, it's a complimentary world out there, I think there are advantages/disadvantages to both the male and female genders. Don't simply trade one box for another, be happy, free your mind, be you, what ever that might happen to be like at any one given time.  Good luck, best wishes in life.  Cyndi -

      Assigned male at birth, questioning my gender identity.  Im definitely either cis male or trans woman.  I know that a gender therapist s qualified to delve into the mental side of gender, but what sorts of things can I do to test my own self? Things I can do, try, questions I can ask myself? Thanks in advance ♡

      I know, there are lot's of answers here, this post is really old, and everyone is different, my "best technique" does not apply to anybody else.  Answer = Have a qualified surgeon "tuck" them for you, it's permanent, it's beautiful (imho), and the medication requirements are much nicer on the body (no more spiro !). 2nd answer (pre-op) = I used a nice tight fitting inner panty (like shapewear), and an outer panty to cover over that, nice and smooth, HRT definitely helped me with this little "problem".  I don't miss tucking, OK ?
