FTM Bottom Growth: A Guide from Female-To-Male
Does being a trans man mean you should have a penis?
A human penis is such a massive part of a male identity.
After all, there is a good reason most men are so sensitive about their male appendage, which raises the question.
Should all trans-men have a penis, and is it possible for transitioning females to get a penis?
In this article, we will explore FTM (female-to-male) bottom growth and discuss how to start FTM bottom growth.
An FTM bottom growth is a hormone replacement therapy that stimulates the enhancement of the clitoris, making it grow in width and length.
A female-to-male bottom growth is a transition process for biological females who want to assume a masculine identity through hormone therapy.
During the transition, a transgender male goes through a personalized hormone therapy treatment that promotes the development of masculine physical, sexual, and physiological characteristics.
Testosterone hormone therapy is one of the safest methods for trans males to transition from female to male.
Under the supervision of trained professionals, a transgender man takes doses of testosterone for a specified period until the clitoris expands in size and length.
Depending on your body type and the hormone you take, you may start noticing changes between three and six months.
How to Start Bottom Growth
Can you promote bottom growth without using hormone therapy? Definitely!
Because of medical, legal, economic, or personal reasons, some trans men can’t use testosterone hormone therapy to stimulate bottom growth.
Fortunately, there are various ways you can use to get your bottom growth, including the following:
Bottom growth using DHT creams and Testosterone creams
If you want a synthetic version of testosterone hormone therapy, consider using Dihydrotestosterone creams (DHT creams).
DHT creams are ideal for someone planning to undergo bottom surgery to help stimulate genital growth.
Although you can purchase DHT creams online, it’s advisable to use them under the supervision of a licensed gender-affirming care expert.
You can also use testosterone creams or gels to promote bottom growth.
While they serve the same purpose, testosterone creams are better than gels because they are less irritating.
Testosterone gels contain a high percentage of alcohol, which can irritate your genitals.
Bottom growth using pumps
A pump is a sex tool that helps stimulate bottom growth temporarily.
Pumping involves sucking the clitoris to increase its size, especially during sex.
A pump can help you increase arousal during sex by increasing blood flow into your clitoris, making it easy to maintain an erection.
Pumping for l can help increase your clitoris because the tissue continuously stretches beyond its original size.
Whether using testosterone, creams, or pumps, everyone has a unique experience.
The best way to approach bottom growth is to work with health professionals to guide you.
A licensed healthcare worker will help you get the best medication, counseling, and aftercare treatment.
While hormone therapy is fantastic, it’s not for everyone.
Consider other options if you don’t want to stimulate bottom growth but desire a masculine-presenting appearance.
Consider undergoing a gender–affirming bottom surgery, including phalloplasty or metoidioplasty, which can help cure gender dysphoria.
Factors Influencing Bottom Growth
It can be frustrating when you experience delays during the transition.
Your bottom growth may take longer than expected, depending on various factors, including the following:
Amount of testosterone you take
One major factor influencing bottom growth is the amount of testosterone you take.
If you take higher doses of hormones, you will likely have higher chances of success, obtaining an impressive-size clitoris.
A trans man taking a smaller dosage of hormones may take longer to attain the desired clitoris size.
So, does this mean you should take more hormones to get a bigger trans-dick?
Remember, you must use hormone therapy under the supervision of a licensed health professional.
Another major factor influencing bottom growth is your body type.
Every vagina is unique in size, shape, and color.
The size of your clitoris will affect how much you can stimulate during the transition.
While a typical bottom growth can range between 1- 5cm, you need to factor in the size and shape of your clitoris to estimate how much growth you can stimulate.
If you want maximum bottom growth for your clitoris, you may need to take testosterone for up to 3 years to get the best results.
As a trans- person, the desire to get a body that reflects your gender identity, including a penis, beard, or a deep voice, is intrinsic and visceral.
Unfortunately, you can’t just close your eyes and wish for your clitoris to transform into a penis magically.
If you genuinely desire to change from female to male, you need gender-affirming care to stimulate bottom growth.
While not mandatory, some trans men opt for an FTM bottom growth to treat gender dysphoria.
So, how do you start your FTM bottom growth?
Here is everything you need to know about an FTM bottom growth:
Every experience is unique.
Gender transition is personal for everyone.
Your FTM growth process is unique and incomparable to anyone else, so knowing what you want and what to expect is important.
Don’t rush to use hormones because your friends are on testosterone without proper guidance on what to expect.
Think of transitioning like growing up; everyone goes through the process, and we all end up with different traits and characteristics outcomes.
Does FTM bottom growth start when you begin taking gender-affirming hormone therapy?
No! Be patient.
Your clitoris won’t extend in length and width the first day you use hormones.
Clitoral hypertrophy takes time, and you probably won’t see results in months.
You may start witnessing FTM bottom growth after two to three months.
Remember, notable physical changes around your genitals may take longer than three months, depending on varying factors.
Some trans men can experience bottom growth within three months after taking hormones, while others take up to five months to see results.
Bottom growth heightens sensitivity and sensations
The clitoris is a pretty sensitive area, especially when transitioning.
While taking testosterone gender-affirming hormone therapy, you may experience physical, medical, and psychological changes, which may be temporary or permanent.
For most biological women, the clitoris is usually under the shaft hood, keeping it hidden and protected.
Depending on sensitivity and size of growth, you may experience uncomfortable physical sensations.
A bottom growth exposes the clit to constant friction and contact with clothes, which can be new and uncomfortable.
While bottom growth can be uncomfortable, it’s relatively painless.
Depending on your level of sensitivity, you may feel like you are packing, making you feel like you need to adjust your crotch.
You may experience burning, itchiness, or internal pressure, but nothing extreme that may require medical help.
You get a better sex life
Sex will never be the same once you transition from female to male.
Enhancing your clitoris can significantly enhance your sexual experiences by increasing sensations.
A bottom growth stimulates clitoris growth, making it more sensitive to sexual stimulation.
As a trans man, you may experience arousal frequently because of the heightened sensations, making it easier to have sex regularly.
Transitioning from female to male can heighten your sexual pleasure, giving you intense orgasms.
Trans men have higher chances of achieving orgasms than women because of the hypersensitivity around their enlarged clitoris.
Additionally, having a larger clitoris can make you more confident, allowing you to pursue and enjoy sexual pleasure.
You are more likely to achieve sexual satisfaction if you are comfortable with your physical appearance and your gender identity aligns with your body.
Most trans people experience hypersensitivity during hormone therapy, especially down there.
Since having bottom growth isn’t an excuse to walk around looking like you have a hard-on or an STI, you need a strategy to reduce hypersensitivity.
Find comfortable underwear
One way to manage bottom growth hypersensitivity is to wear spacious underwear.
Consider wearing underwear and pants that provide adequate space for your extended clitoris.
For instance, you can wear large boxers to reduce friction around your bottom.
Lube comes in handy
Another strategy for reducing hypersensitivity is to reduce lubrication.
Lubricating the area around your clitoris can reduce friction when you move or wear clothes, reducing discomfort and hypersensitivity.
Consider using skin-sensitive lubricants to minimize irritation or allergic reactions.
Stop using packers (for a while)
Consider waiting a few months before wearing a packer after getting bottom growth.
Packing increases contact with your clitoris, causing stimulation that may be uncomfortable.
If you can’t stop packing, consider wearing packers only when necessary.
A FTM transition can significantly enhance the mental and physical well-being of transgender men.
Using hormone therapy, a biological female can develop masculine sexual characteristics, including an enhanced clitoris, giving them physical characteristics that align with their identity.
