Hello doctor,

I am 27 years old and suffering from severe depression. I have a girly voice, and my secondary sexual characters are also not fine. I have a patchy beard and very little hair on my body. My ejaculation is also transparent.

Kindly help.

I understand your concern. I have a few questions for you.

  1. Are you married?
  2. Are you a student or doing a job?
