Some nonbinary people who were assigned male at birth want to look and sound in such a way that most people will see them as women. Feminizing hormone therapy does this. It is a medicine that a person takes on a regular basis, which makes them go through many of the same changes that women went through at puberty. Some effects of it last only as long as the person takes that medicine, and will go away if they stop, such as looking like a woman (due to skin texture, body odor, tending to have less muscle, and where the body stores fat), and some changes to the genitals and sexual responses. Other effects of this medicine are permanent once they happen, such as growing breasts. Feminizing hormone therapy does not make a person's voice get higher.
