"Hi, My name is Alexandra and I am MTF. I get a lot of conflicting opinions on how to go about transitioning, ie. some say it's better to do electrolysis, hormones, voice work first and others say that it should be that SRS is most important and the rest can be done later. So with all the conflicting opinions which is right? Or is there no wrong and right just what works best for me? "
