I am considering trying female hormones and would like to know if the shrinking of the male genitalia is permanent or not. If I choose not to continue towards changing sex from male to female, are there any permanent effects using female hormones?

First of all, this is a question you should be asking your therapist and/or endocrinologist. Do not take hormones unsupervised! However, I will say this, when a genetic male takes estrogen he will experience permanent breast growth almost immediately. He will also experience minor shrinking of the penis and the testes if he takes it for an extended period. All other hormonal changes are reversible.
