Transvestites in Malaysia have turned to contraceptive pills to become more of a woman.
They believe that the drug will help convert their manly bodies into the more curvy female figure.
According to a front-page write up in Utusan Malaysia, several "mak nyah" or transvestites are taking contraceptive pills as they heard that it would "give them breasts, softer skin and a feminine voice", reports The Star Online.
"They (transvestites) are willing to carry out such 'medical experiments' and even risk their health just to realise their dreams of becoming women.
"They are even willing to buy contraceptive pills that are sold at the pasar malam (night market) and along the five-foot way," the report said.
