This phase is called the 'real life test'. At the same time there started the hormones, thus changed the physical characteristics such as body hair or breasts. For transsexual, this is often a difficult phase in the process, especially because the hormones need time to be absorbed into the body. Many transsexuals have at this time struggling to behave like someone of the opposite sex. At this stage see many transsexuals from a continuation of the process and leave everything just as it was.
Surgical procedures: If even this period has closed, and the transsexual will still follow the transformation undergone some surgical procedures in which the genitals and other secondary sex characteristics are changed.
