Direct Financial costs of mtf transitioning

(1/19) > >>

ChrissyRyan:
What are the direct financial costs of transitioning?   Seems like many thousands of US dollars, depending on what you do.

Some items to consider:

Therapy
Medical doctors
Lab tests
Mtf HRT medicine itself
Hair removal

New sensible size and quality of wardrobe and appearance:
Clothes
Shoes
Halr and beauty
Jewelry
Accessories

Legal

Surgeries

And so on...


On top of that, maybe a financial loss of income because of lost work or lost clients; the loss of what others may have financially contributed for shared living expenses when they lived with you but who have now moved out, so you are paying it all now; and costs of potential moving/relocating.

I'm also counting in my expenses the amount extra I'm paying to be on a PPO plan vs an HMO plan to give me more choice of providers. It's going to be about $5k per year for two years. But I think it will be worth it for peace of mind.
