Ep 4: A Trans Woman's Experience With Vaginoplasty (Part 1 & 2)

Updated: Nov 13, 2020



This episode features an interview between Jul and a trans woman named Hannah. In this episode we talk about what it is like to have bottom surgery (specifically: Vaginoplasty). The interview is broken up into two segments (Part 1 and Part 2). In Part 1 we talk about: how Hannah went about getting the surgery, what preparations she did and how she dealt with post--op. We also talk about the importance of how we talk to trans people about their bodies, what it is like to pee after transitioning, and a few fun stories here and there. In Part 2 we dive into pelvic dilations, orgasms, how trans people are treated in society, and what family means to Hannah.

Hannah's Go-To Post-Op Checklist:



Vocabulary used in this episode:

Trans= Somebody who was not born with the sex that correlates with the gender they identify as. Sex being their genitals. Gender being one of the following= male/female/non-binary/non-conforming.

  • ex: Katie was born with a penis, but identifies as a woman

Cis= Somebody who was born with the sex that aligns with their gender identity.

  • Franky was born with a vagina, and identifies as a woman

Vaginoplasty= A plastic surgery of the vagina that is for women born without vaginas.

  • In this episode we are talking about going from a penis to a vulva and vagina

Body Dysmorphic Disorder= A preoccupation with one or more physical features, which are perceived as being flawed. Historically BDD was used by doctors to disregard trans people.

Bottom Surgery= A type of gender confirmation surgery in which a person's genitalia are altered to match their gender identity.

Top Surgery= The surgical procedure to increase or decrease breast sizes in order to match their gender identity.

Urethra= The anatomical part of the genitalia in which urine comes out of.

Male to Female= A person who was assigned male at birth but whose gender identity and gender expression is female.

  • This can be seen as offensive to use because it is implying the person had to have been previously a male.

Passing= In the context of gender, passing or blending is when someone, typically a transgender person, is perceived as cisgender instead of the sex they were assigned at birth.

  • This can be seen as offensive to use because it deems there are only two genders to identify as, when in reality gender is a spectrum.
