really? I didn't think it affected/femenized facial features....TBH I haven't done a lot of research on ALL the effects of HRT.

I'm 5.7 and 155lb and I don't know where I want to go with HRT and the changes. I'm scared.  I do have fantasies about having Cs but I don't want to shave/laser off my chest hair...I want to trim it but not shave it completely...this is all new to me so I'm figuring it all out. TBH I'm worried about what this will do to physical attraction (will my husband still find me physically attractive?)   

Yea...I didnt think so either...but I take transition progress pics frequently and I can def see the diffs. I am 5ft 9in and 150 lbs. I am only going for B cups...atm I am in Tanner Stage 3 with natural breast growth (LOVING IT)....I never had any chest hair actually....minus a cpl strands around each nipple...which I just shave off every few weeks or so...As far as if your husband will find you physically attractive...nobody can answer that but him/her....have you spoken with them about your transition and HRT?

Due to forum rules I cant disclose my dosages but my PCP has me on Estrogen, Spiro and Progesterone....I am also on Lexapro...which apparently also promotes breast growth in rare cases!! Lucky for me...I'm RARE!! lol

But my baseline testosterone levels were slightly below the "normal" range for a AMAB my age too so that may have played a factor in my development so far...idk?

It's been really slow for me.  But I started in my late 60's on a low dose of E.  It has been gradually raised for about 5yrs now.  I had a hard and unsuccessful time trying to get my endo to add progesterone, but he wouldn't do it.  So I added in some over the counter cream (which I'd always heard doesn't work). The jury is still out on that in my opinion.  How ever I was able to switch my HRT to a gynecologist in the woman's clinic and she gives me the P with the E.  I think it helps.

I should say that my mother and sisters were never all that large, so there is genetics.  I now fill the 42 A cup bra.  Not real impressive, but quite real - which was the point anyway.  (I'm 5'10" and around 200 lbs)

As a side note, it was quite early on when I was very uncomfortable with going topless.

Yes...from what my aunt tells me....my mother was not that large either...my sister..Im  not sure...but Im hoping my already low T helps with the process....my skin has always been smooth and soft too...and my hair like baby hair...makes my wife jealous...I guess I was already a lot "female" in physical characteristics before HRT so I guess that might be why...but yes...I absolutely and unquestionably must wear a shirt, and at times a bra to hide my nipples, around my boys now....one being 17 and the other 8....

As for facial changes, I haven't really paid a lot of attention, but I have been told that I do look "softer" now.

There is less body hair, and what there is is softer.  When I first started I shaved my legs now and then.  I haven't in at least two years, and you'd never know it.  Similar with chest hairs.  If I could just get the same with my face…

And I'd like a bit on top too.  Too many years of testosterone poisoning.  I just tell myself I suffered from years of a hormone imbalance.

I am just starting my transition from M2F, but anxious to see and feel my breasts develop.

It is an amazing feeling when you first accidentally bump something and realize what is happening.

Lips definitely come along for the ride. Overall facial fat distribution as well.

 

I started with just under a B cup before HRT, yay gynecomastia! and through a full month of Estradiol only on a lowish dose. Things are working and I can tell my breasts are a little fuller. Not much, but a little bit. Same as all the others here with sensitivity. My hope is they develop better shaping, they're too conical. I have a ways to go before I get too concerned, but I see progesterone in my future.

My endocrinologist said I could get on progesterone after a year so maybe more growth. I want them to naturally be DD so when I can get implants it won’t be as big to get DDD

Yes...I just started Progesterone this morning and I am so very hopeful. Although, so far I am developing relatively fast from my research and observations indicate...but Im old..Im in a hurry!! haha. Mine did start out very conical as well but in the last few days they have filled out more up top and rounded out more on the sides and bottom. Im so excited every day to wake up and see what has changed with them!! lm probably going to be disappointed when they finally stop growing. lol

Anyone have any advice, feedback, experience, etc with Progesterone and if it actually does help with breast growth...and if so, what were you results and how quickly did you see the change?

I tried to get my (VA) endocrinologist to add P to my E prescription, but he wouldn't.  Last year I switched to the gynecologist in the woman's clinic for my HRT, and she was fine with it.  I've not been one to take measurements and such, but I have noticed that I fill out my bra better now.  And they just feel fuller.

At my age I really don'r expect a whole lot, but my perception is the Progesterone has helped.  And of course, they feel great.

Progesterone is one of those things that MAY help some people but not all and not all equally who do take it.  I could not take it, but have been around folks that do take it and they are one of two types with no middle ground, THEY LOVE IT or THEY HATE IT!!  I am happy with what I have which is just a tad bigger than one sister and equal to the other in size and close to my grandmothers (plural). 

 

My major AHAA moment was driving in the hills just north of me where there are some very winding roads with sharp turns and hand over hand steering even at moderate speeds.  Oh did they get banged around by my elbows.

About how long after beginning P did you notice a boost beyond your normal E growth? Do you recall?

Hi.  Did they say why they hated it? were there any major side effects?

tonight I was feeling my little mosquto bites up after the shower. They felt nice. And I thought "maybe I'll be an enby with hairy chest and breasts". I'm okay with that.  I just don't see myself going through electrolysis. ouch.

I don't remember every case, but mostly it was the fact that the results did not live up to their hopes and dreams of the meds as Magic Sauce in their lives.  How many had unreasonable expectations I really can't tell you.  One was mad that she still had to get BA surgery after thinking she would get double H instead of still B cups.

Ah I see. thank you Vicky. :). I will remind myself to not have unrealistic expectations.

Realistic expectations are one reason I encourage people to sign up to this and similar forums.  I knew from talking to others that As were more likely than Ds.  They told me to check my female relatives, that I'd most likely end up smaller than them.  My mother was small.  I checked a photo of my grandmother, and she was small.  So I'd have been ecstatic with Bs.  I am a small A, but they are real and they are mine!  Woo-hoo!

Yeah, that's all that matters to me as well.

 

In answer to another question -

I started using a P (plant-based) cream before I was able to switch doctors.  I had always heard that these things didn't work, but hey, why not.  I do feel like it helped a little, but it did help my mental state.  I told the gynecologist about this of course when I started seeing her.  She kind of dismissed it.  We had a nice talk getting to know each other.  I told her I wasn't expecting a whole lot and mentioned my mother being small.  She just kinda laughed and pointed out that she was on the small side as well.  She wrote me the scrip for the P (caps) which I take now before bed.  (they say it can make you sleepy)  I still use the cream on them because I like how it feels.  My latest labs came back fine.

I've heard that it can really affect some people's moods in a negative way as well. Things I've read suggest:

  • It may help with maturation of the breast (rounding out, fullness)
  • It may do nothing for your breasts
  • It may stunt breast development (matures the breast before they reach their size potential)
  • It may cause moodiness or negative emotions
  • It may increase libido
  • It may improve sleep
  • It may increase body hair growth

      I note that most of the "backing off" touted in the article concerns Gay and Lesbian rights.  Nothing so far about the anti-trans laws and regulations that DeSantis and his ilk have gotten approved.  The only saving graces for our community in Florida have been in the courts.  So, as the saying goes, I'll believe it when I see it.   Carolyn Marie

      It's kind of like the very slow recovery after a devastating hurricane (which mercifully I've not lived through). Rainbows do tend to appear post-storm.    About the Don't Say Gay settlement. Teachers are now allowed to talk about LGBTQIA+ stuff & to be LGBTQIA+, as long as it's not part of the curriculum. So still no formalized education allowed.    The overall impression on the culture of Florida and its influence on US and world culture has had its effect. I do consider myself an optimist and a realist, and do not mean to seem pessimistic. It is good that DeSantis has cooled his jets to whatever extent he has. But the collateral damage here (and by extension elsewhere) is palpable. Yes, people rejoice - we can gather once more and celebrate pride. But it seems to require more guts than just a few years ago bc so many h8ers have been enabled and empowered by policies and demonizing rhetoric over the last few years.    The wonderful thing about hurricane recovery, returning to that comparison, is that it often brings out the very best virtues in people such as compassion, kindness, generosity, and a deeper sense of fellowship and goodwill.

      Seems like they caught him pumping gasoline onto a political fire for sure.  I do think that for the time being he has been cooled down a bit.

      I am not completely sure what you mean here.  To be "held responsible" means that they have been investigated and brought to justice by any number of legal and financial means.  That would be a good thing, and has been done recently in a case for slander and libel where the organization agreed to pay its victims many millions of dollars.  In that case the victims were NOT Trans, but the platform was "held responsible". If you mean simply "found to be responsible" by evidence obtained from various credible sources, then of course there are options for the victims to pursue to "hold them responsible" in monetary or terms of personal freedom of the officers.  There are many such organizations that do foster hatred of our community and we have taken different forms of action which includes exposing their hatred and intentions to other public media.  It is not a "what if" the groups do this, it is done regularly.  As long as they are deemed to be private and not government supported, the best we can do is avoid such places.  If the site is Government Supported, then there is a chain of legal events that one or many legal organizations that support the Trans Community can bring actions to have corrected via the Courts or other agencies as dictated by law.

      Florida’s LGBTQ+ residents relieved after easing of DeSantis’s anti-gay laws Past 12 months show evidence of radical change in political climate, starting with judge again allowing children at drag shows. Leaders of Florida’s much-embattled LGBTQ+ communities say the worst of Governor Ron DeSantis’s three-year onslaught against them may be over, with the official start of Pride month celebrations only days away. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/article/2024/may/27/florida-lgbt-law-ron-desantis

      I have four purses. A Coach purse being the only big-name brand but it's not in great shape. I might get another Coach purse because I like their design.

      Happy Memorial day. As a veteran of the armed forces. I know the sacrifice that has been given by others like me. Each and every service member signs the check up to and including my life, payable to the Untied States of America. Some have had this check cashed, either in battle or because of it. Today we honor those men and woman.   It is sad that some people just think it is a extra day off to raise hell and get drunk.   Today I honor my father and brother in law, two uncles, and all of those I have met while in uniform, who have passed.     Hugs to all.   Kymmie

      I always hated wearing hats but am finding some new love for them now, especially with longer hair to try to control.

      Hats can be fun.  A nice sun hat with a wide brim.  You gotta watch out in the wind though.

      The tornados made our news here. Death toll 18 so far? Yikes. It seems like the USA is infamous for them, unfortunately. Stay safe, y'all.   Public holidays to revere our veterans and war dead are sacred. Our equivalent is ANZAC Day on April 25th each year. To those who served, THANK YOU.

      Good morning everyone,   Yes, @awkward-yet-sweet it was very strong weather day down South and in the Midwest. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they recover. It’s also good to hear that you and yours are doing well too.    My day started early as Parker needed to go outside to do his business and potty. Since it was dawn and flag etiquette requires all USA 🇺🇸 flags to be flown at half staff from sunrise until noon in honor of our fallen veterans, I took care of my flag. I fly it 24/7 on a lighted pole following the www.starsandstripesdaily.org guidance.    Later today we will be gathering at our son’s house for a cookout. Other family members will be bringing their dogs to be introduced and socializing with Parker.    Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
