With supervision: While there are no side effects to cross-dressing, once you start putting any kind of drug/medication in your body, there are potentially harmful side effects. Phytoestrogens, naturally occurring estrogenic substances extracted from plants including black cohash & soy, should really not be used without physician supervision, especially in men.

Can anxiety cause rapid heart rate when standing, over 100 bpm, and muscle weakness? I've been experiencing this for a month. Docs can't find anything
