Transgender man regrets his transition and decides to become a woman again

Alia Ismail was born and raised as a woman but decided to become a man in May 2015. He started taking testosterone and even underwent surgery to modify his body in 2016. Eventually, he grew a beard and went by the name Issa.

However, after six years of identifying within the male gender, Alia realized she would be “much happier” living as a woman again and in January 2021 decided to regret her transition.

Since then, she has gone back to wearing women’s clothing and has stopped taking testosterone.

The young woman also underwent laser hair removal on her face and body to remove traces of her manly appearance. Despite some criticism from the transgender community, Alia says she just wants to raise awareness and use her voice to help others who might be struggling with their identity.

“I didn’t think I would ever be this feminine person again. I was always very fluid, I was a ‘tomboy’ until I was 18. After that, I was very masculine from 19 to 27, when I was living as a trans man,” she said.

According to her, “I looked like a man, there was no doubt about it,” but she experienced several emotional episodes that made her regret her transition. Now, her biggest drive is to help other transgender women and men to be able to accept themselves as they are.

“I feel like I’m in the right place for me right now, at this moment. The biggest advice I can give you is to really listen to yourself, follow your intuition and know what’s best for you. That should give you all the signals you need,” she said in an interview.

She assures that she is comfortable with her identity and because of that she can guide others with the same problem she had. “Just because hormones weren’t the path of a lifetime for me doesn’t mean they won’t be for someone else. I want to help people on all sides of the conversation because I’ve been there,” she concluded.
