Age During Transition?

Lock Lock
At what age did you start your transition, if you've started? I'd consider any step you feel is a first step in transition as being the start - whether it's picking a name, getting a binder, or having surgery.

20 here, going to be 21 by the time I get hormones from a Dr. but I voted based on self-identification and self-dosing

I came out at 16 and got my first packer pretty soon after. However I had known, and had been binding since I was 14. I had my first therapy session and name change at 18, started T when I was 19, unfortunately I had to stop both because of my parents and money, I've recently started therapy again, thank GOD. It's about time!

I count my transition as my medical transition.

Yeah, it's hard to put a date on this: I came out as Trans at 19, started hormones at 25....

I got my first binder for my 17th birthday (I had to ask my cousin to buy it for me because I didn't have a credit card and couldn't ask my parents).
I guess I sort of came out to my mom shortly after that because she asked about how my chest was all of a sudden flat.
Started using male pronouns and the name Elliott my freshman year of college and then changed my mind because it felt too foreign to me.
A few months before I turned 23 I started seeing a therapist and started hormones.

I voted for my husband. He was under 18, and started testosterone at 19-I think.

I knew something wasn't right when I went through puberty at 12, but I was too scared to do anything about it until I was 22

I started my social transition a couple of years ago, I'm still waiting on T.

Depending on what you consider "start your transition", I realized what transness was and stuff when I was 14, though I had gravitated to male names before that. As for hormones, I started at 19.

i identified as male at age 2-3. i discovered the term "transgender" when i was 12. i came out to some people then, and have accepted that as the term for my condition ever since. i came out to everyone and started the process of trying to find a doctor/therapist who would get me t when i was 15. i'm now almost 21, and i start hormones next week after six miserable years of indiana screwing me over.

I'm twenty-nine years old and I only just started my transition a few months ago.

I've been Mason since 2007 and Mace since 2002, but I didn't get a binder, start taking DHEA or even think of getting a packer until early this year.

I was about 17, I guess. I'm still transitioning now at 18, but that was when I came out to my mum, transitioned at school and got into the NHS medical system for it, so yeah.

I started at 21. I'm not planning to go on T, but at age 21 was when I started to like, transition in my life. Getting people to use my new name and etc.

I started at 16, that's when I got my first binder and started fully self-identifying as trans. I started my hormones at 17, and surgery is soon to follow, I hope.

Started social transition at 12, started actively seeking medical treatment when I was ... 14?, but only finally got on hormones at 17 (woo, gatekeepers).

Socially transitioned at age 18 once I graduated from my not-queer-friendly high school, started hormones shortly before turning 20.

I made the decision to identify as trans*, rather than tenderly wish I could magically alter my biological gender but otherwise write it off, when I was twenty-one. It's been one fast-paced, all-too-slow, chaotic tumble since then.

Though if we're including when I'd thoughtlessly wish away my birth-assigned sex, that was when I was fifteen or sixteen. I had no idea what "trans*" was then, and couldn't have confidently told you the difference between a dragqueen and someone who was genderqueer at the time. (Though who can confidently categorize anyone at gunpoint, I suppose!)

I'm 19, but already feel like it's too late. It seems like so many people start so early
