Why does my voice sound effeminate?
Q: My voice is essentially high pitched and it cracks when I tend to raise my voice. It hasn't cracked properly as it generally should happen. People mistake me to be a lady when talking on the phone sometimes. I have got my thyroid levels tested and they have come in the specified ranges. I mean the regular ranges. Could you tell the cause behind the problem?
A:Voice problems are not always related to hormonal imbalance. They could be a result of misuse, sustained use of wrong habitual pitch, etc. The normal range for a male speaker is approximately 90-110 Hz. You need to get a detailed voice profiling done which would include both subjective and objective evaluation of your voice as well as an in depth case history, which would throw light on the cause of the same. The treatment would follow.
