I'm Terrified of Starting HRT!

You mentioned that you're getting hrt from a nurse practitioner, I am getting my hrt from one as well. I am completely comfortable with her and wouldn't think of changing my provider. She is well versed in Transgender issues.

That's good to know. 🙂
Only reason I'd change my provider at this point is if I moved to Farmington Hills, Michigan, as Dr. William Powers of Powers Family Medicine would've been my ideal choice if location weren't an issue lol.

I suppose what makes me a bit hesitant/uncomfortable with my local provider is that it's based out of a women's health clinic that performs abortions for the most part, and I'm largely pro-life. 😕

Oh hey! A friend of mine sees him. Of course Farmington Hills is maybe ten minutes from my porch.

 

Hugs!

Yeah, I know what you mean.   I had to work through this myself.  They do do a lot more than abortions though. 
I was glad when I could move to the VA instead.

Coolness! I've heard he's like, the premier HRT guru to see and is a bit of a pioneer when it comes to advancements in transgender healthcare. XD

Indeed; and at least the clinic I'm going to refuses to perform abortions beyond 12 weeks...but still; I looked up a 12 week fetus and it looks an awful lot like a little person. O.O

At the same time though I can also understand the need for abortion; I just feel it should be a last resort to save a life rather than an alternative form of birth control lol.

Not something to do lightly.

      That's great Tasha,   I follow a few of trans-women on YouTube.  One is a Pilot, the other two are Flight Attendants, they seem to have full support of their employers.   Best wishes, and good luck with the FAA Physical.   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      This is very good news Emily,   How is everything else going? I hope when you get back to work there's a lift crane on your service truck. I remember when I was a young mechanic, thinking it was a waste of space on the service truck. Later I would use it to set tires, and other things off or on the truck. "Work Smart Not Hard" all of a sudden had new meaning.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      @Niamh funny you mention that but that’s exactly what my child suggested last night as far as adding Xi as his first name and bumping his original name to his middle name! But I think @Jackie C. is right, for the moment don’t need to change the official papers yet until later on. Give him time to make sure he likes that and wants to keep it. And it makes total sense to me that he would want a clean break. I’ll ponder this for a while and try to wrap my head around accepting it. The smile on his face if we do is enticing though. And you’re of course right that he’s going to have enough stress in his life, why get hung up on something that could so easily make him happy. ❤️ I need this forum to help put things in perspective for sure so thank you both tremendously!

      Been trying so hard will do!   Hugs Right Back at You @Jackie C.

      A folded piece of toilet paper held in front of your genitals will keep you from making a mess. There's a little spray but it's actually easier to control than when, for example, you get up to urinate in the middle of the night and the stream from your penis initially forks because the universe has decided to punish you in particular tonight. So yeah, a little foresight and preparation and you're good to go.   After a couple of weeks, I just sat, urinated, cleaned myself then got on my way. Here we are a year later and there are no issues. I'd recommend keeping your Kegel muscles strong with regular exercise, but that's more for sexual health and to prevent leaks.   Hugs!

      Good morning all. Been so busy last couple of days. I did do some investigating this morning and just found out that HRT will not effect me as far as my FAA flight medical. As long as I have no issues on it the FAA has no issues with me so I can keep on flying on HRT. 1 obstacle gone. Moving forward.🤗

      Progress comes when you grab it.   Hugs!

      @Mia Marie first of all - congrats on 6 months. I'm at 8 months and it has been the best decision I've ever made. At my 6 month check my T was still too high and E too low so made adjustments and adding progesterone has helped with breast growth. I think think it matters much (at least to me) what format I receive meds but just am glad I have supervision to adjust to what is best for me and I'm glad you are as well. I'm not well versed in what CBC is and the only thing that comes to mind is Canadian Broadcasting Company and I don't think that's it. I'm happy for your monitored supervision and happy for you deciding on the route you have taken. Has it been good for you?

      Hello All:   I have a question and wanted to know and have heard very little about it so I will also try to keep it as clean as possible.  So after your GCS surgery and you need to use the restroom, I have heard that the first month or 2 when using the restroom that it tends to spray more than be like a stream and when it sprays, it tends to get everywhere and usually due to the swelling and getting used to the new part for going to the restroom.  Then I heard that after awhile when the swelling starts to go down that it becomes less of a spray and more of a stream in time and also you then learn how to better control it when using the restroom.  So was wondering if this is correct and what is some of the post-op girls out their experience with using the restroom from right after GCS surgery and going to the 1 year after or more?   Thank You All   Side note, I have 46 days and counting till April 21st for my GCS surgery with Dr. Crane
