Hi everyone, i hope you are all well. Thank you for visiting my page. My name is Tyla, I am a 26year old transgender male. I have been seeing the gender identity clinic since I was 16 and was on testosterone for a year when I reached 18. I decide to come off testosterone in the hope I could store my eggs with the fertility clinic. At that time it wasn’t available at my CCG. I decided to give myself some time and put things on hold to save for it. Egg storage privately can cost anything between £2,500-£4,500.
At 19 I had moved into my own place and saving was harder than expected. Years had passed while I continued to try and seek help from the NHS. It has been a rough ride believe me I had mixed emotions constantly but I always knew I wanted to do egg preservation before going ahead with the rest of my transition.
Last year October I had good news!! I had been accepted to get egg storage through the NHS. I have been to the hospital numerous times now to prepare myself for treatment for egg preservation. Since the COVID-19 this was once again put on hold. I spoke with my doctor on the 2nd July 2020 and they said I’m ready to start as soon as their treatments commence.
I already know from experience to not put timeframes on things, although I decided to start this fund for my chest surgery what would be the next step. It will be costing a minimum £7,500, therefore I am doing all I can now to raise and save the funds for it now. I would really like things to run as smoothly as possible and I am dreading having another long wait of years and years.
Being transgender and not quite fully transitioned is hard to cope with but I stay positive knowing “it will all be over one day” ...
Any donation will be honestly appreciated from the bottom of my heart! Please do share my story as far and wide as you can!

I have created this fund to hopefully help raise funds for my top surgery with a private clinic. All funds raised will be for my transition. It costs roughly £7,500-£10,000 with a private clinic. If this fundraising goes well, I will be hoping to donate to others in aid to help with the initial consultations.
I understand this year has been stressful for everyone. I have suffered greatly due to the closure of clinics and services. Many other transgender people are suffering the same way. Our appointments have been pushed back almost a year. We are all currently facing the uncertainty of being able to access funds from the NHS and them delaying surgery due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The stress the NHS are currently facing too has made me decide and try and do this private. With your help hopefully I can!
