Hair...loss on spiro?


Wichita

Recommended Posts

Not sure if I’m in the right section or not, but it’s hair-relayed, so I’m hoping do.

 

Has anyone noticed hair loss after starting spiro? I’ve been on the spiro/estradiol train for almost a month and I’ve noticed an increase in hairs making an “exit” from my head area.
 

I have debilitating OCD, and sometimes I tend to use a wet wipe, well, almost every where. After a quick couple of passes on my head (OCD sucks, I assure you) I’ve noticed there are hairs in the wet wipe afterward. 
 

I don’t recall seeing this before I started HRT...and my OCD has been at its present level for 3 years.

This Wikipedia link explains the growth and life span of hair shafts which should help you see what is happening.  The Spiro does disrupt the hair growth phase for MALE textured hair on all your skin but your beard areas but that is a good thing since it will lead to the growth of female textured hair.  I would talk to your doctor though about your sterile wipes causing breakage of the hair strands before they have completed their growth cycles.

Ahh. So I’m losing one sort of hair and gaining another? I did not know about that. 
 

I guess I’ll just put this as item number one on my list of things I wish I’d known before I began. It would have saved me a bit of panic last night.

I began losing hair on <dose 1> Spiro. Cut back to <lower dose> and it slowed down. Now on <dose>, one <dose> mg in the morning and <dose> n the evening and we'll see how it goes. But my hair thinned quite a bit.

 

 

 


Yeah I’m hoping it’s as they suggested just swapping one type of hair for another.

 

But we’ll see.

      You do and thank you.  After the last time, something clicked and I'm starting to see the real me in the mirror and in my self image.

      Again, congratulations! Still jealous though. 🥺   Hugs!

      God, I love being a girl!

      My guess would be a realization of, "Nobody is agreeing with me. Maybe I'm wrong?" Good on her. Good on the nurse and like I keep telling you, you look just like a skinnier version of my sister-in-law. She's never mentioned anybody mis-gendering her so I think you're stuck with being "Liz the woman." Congratulations!   Hugs!

      I’m planning on having these done this summer in Thailand, so I will be following your adventure. Good luck! You must be so excited!

      Lots of good stuff in that story.  It sounds like your wife's acceptance doesn't run in a straight line...like a graph that ultimately goes upward, but is kinda jagged along the way.

      She must have really wanted them to retrieve you, @ElizabethStar . The other 'she/her' talk? That'd make me want to accompany my spouse everywhere!

      I don’t know anything about Mexico, but I just had the surgery in Japan—less than a week ago. I can share more about my own experience, if that’s what you decide to have done. Good luck!

      I'm smiling with my eyes. 😷 Wearing my favorite denim skirt...just because.

      Knowing no trans people whatever locally (at least as far as I know) and just living in the community I don't see any advantage to it. To me it is preferable to live in the general population rather than segregation, which would likely bring as many problems as it solves.   Tracy

      Yay! progress! What a happy story!  I took a check into the bank today to get it cashed and the cashier said she liked the color of my nail polish! So nice!
    • AgnesBardsie
      I find this so true! The girl is fearless whereas the boy is a big chicken! Whenever I feel doubts rising I tell myself, "Agnes, you're in charge. Do what needs to be done," and it gets done! It's amazing! Agnes can talk to complete strangers about anything under the sun! I love this girl!
    • AgnesBardsie
      Great question! Number one. Be true to yourself. It's your inner sense that matters, no one else. When doubts creep in, put them under a light and ask yourself honestly where they're coming from. Is it anticipation of someone's negative opinion that is causing the doubt? If so, remember that they haven't actually responded yet. It's the anticipation that's causing the doubt. You know in yourself better than anyone else who you are. Keep your focus on that. Love who you are. Others will love you for who you are as a result. Two more pieces of advice. (1) Breathe! (2) Smile!

      To be honest I’m not completely out yet but my parents know and my friends so I can maybe tell you about that feeling, maybe, that’s more on my experience. I told some of my friends and my partner before saying it to my parents and I did not feel really better because I still had to tell it to my parents so I just kept thinking about this. So maybe idk this is based on me but maybe it’s because you’re still stressed about the fact that your sister and mother don’t know yet. And again you might not feel exactly better after they know or maybe yes depending on their reaction but you might feel it off your shoulders, but like I said it’s my experience and we’re all different. So I don’t really know but at least you’ll have a good end to this, and that you’ll be accepted by your mother and sister even if it might take a while ^^ so good luck! I think you can do it!
