I am 25 year old male who genetically inherited a high pitched
voice.  I have had people tease me about this (or mistaken me for
younger than I really am, but it doesn't bother until I started
dating.  I know a high pitched voice is very un-masculine and makes me
less attractive to women.

I want a solid answer to this:

Is there a prescription supplement/drug/hormone I can take to lower my
voice?  Do I have any other options besides oral treatment?

I don't want to hear "practice lowering your voice" because I want a
permanent fix.

Hello bigman1981-ga,

First of all, CONSULT A DOCTOR. 
Secondly, there are testosterone medications that can help to lower
your voice, along with other things.

Testosterone Buccal is the med I found?
?Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased sexual desire and
ability, extreme tiredness, low energy, depression, and loss of
certain male characteristics such as muscular build and deep voice.
Testosterone buccal systems work by supplying synthetic testosterone
to replace the testosterone that is normally produced naturally.?

Maybe you?re low on testosterone. Ask your Doctor to check your
hormone levels and see if maybe that may be the cause.
If you?re not low on testosterone, vocal training is the way to go to
naturally lower your voice by stretching out the vocal cords. Please
do NOT take a medication that you don?t need. Longer vocal cords
produce deeper registers, so if you can stretch your vocal cords with
practice, vocal training could be a permanent fix.

Stay away from drugs ... never a good idea ...

Maybe if you took singing lessons, the singer teacher could prescribe
a permanent fix ...

Just a thought.

If there is a girl who wouldn't be with you because of the register of
your voice...

you don't want that girl anyway, no matter how much you think you do.
Do yourself a favour and be with someone who accepts you for who you

Try having a sex change

That would solve the problem of attractiveness to women.

What you are asking for probably is not worth only 2 dollars, I would
increase the price of your question to at lest 20 - 30 if you want a
full explanation.

2 Dollars is basically a Yes No answer!

Mark's comment reminds me that the lovely Gene Tierney wanted to lower
her voice and she was told by her studio bosses to start smoking ....

And guess what?

She died of emphysemia.

Nearly always, people with high-pitched voices don't have naturally
high-pitched voices. (Even when they have parents with high-pitched
voices.) A good vocal coach (preferably one who specializes in the
speaking voice) can help you permanently change the pitch of your

The problem with hormones and such is that they have side effects, and
it seems unlikely that an ethical doctor would treat you with them for
something that would be considered an aesthetic.

Kind regards,

Kriswrite has the right idea:  talk to a professional and learn about
your voice range.  You probably can sing lower than your present
speaking voice and can learn to speak using a lower tone.

Join a choir.  They are always looking for tenors, and the folks there
will appreciate you.

I would most definitely consult a vocal coach or other professional on
this--simply forcing yourself to speak with a lower pitch can damage
your vocal cords.

Prednisone. Steroids used to treat all kinds of stuff....mostly
inflammation. I took a lot of it. I had the voice of a bear when I was
12. It has side effects, but if you're desperate...

For what it's worth, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy
Roosevelt were described by contemporaries as having a rather higher
register to their voice than expected based on robust physical size
and occupation. All three had mild speech impediments as well.

Cosmetic surgery? You can have all kinds of tweaks done to your vocal
chords. I think they just cut them.

You can lower your voice with hard training. There's a world-class
soccer referee namend Markus Merk who changed his high pitched voice
by training:

He also wrote a book where he describes how he made it, but it's in
