Sexual Health as a Trans Man

Hey everyone,

I've got a bit of a dilemma. As a pre-op trans man soon moving to uni, I'll be engaging in sex more regularly in the coming months. My genitalia are 'abnormal' in that I have a vagina and a micropenis as a result of testosterone treatment.

Obviously my penis is not long enough to use a condom with, and having a vagina leaves me at risk to yeast infections and UTIs. I expect to be topping during sex.

How can I go about safe sex when I can't use a condom? And how can I get referrals for gynecology when I clearly look like an adult male?

I'd ask these questions to your doctor and or consultant, I'd also join a specialist groups who will no doubt be able to advise first hand.

For penetrative sex with a penis into vagina use a Femidom. I'd kind be surprised if there isn't special condoms/dams for people with micro-penises.

Good luck with it all.

Maybe female condoms for your partner could work? Should technically reduce the risk of STIs and UTIs, though I don't know how comfortable they are to use.

As for the second question - it should not be a problem. Presumably your GP knows that you are trans and that you are on T, and if you need to be referred to gynaecology, they will explain your situation in the referral letter. And please consider having smear tests until your surgery (I know it might be really uncomfortable from a gender dysphoria point of view, but they can literally save your life).
