4 month HRT update with charts, pics and flying monkeys!

Recommended Posts

Guest Jaded1

Aright... well maybe no flying monkeys, but I will not disappoint otherwise.

So my partner decided that in all of my pics I am so "posed" that she snapped some candids one night before we were getting ready for bed.

cue 70's porn music!

bow-chica-bow-wow!!!! (or as I recently heard: brown-chicken-brown-cow

Just kidding.

As far as the changes, it is basically more of the same since my last update.

The difference is, I will now also post my lab results. (rest easy mods, no dosage or such info shall be posted.)

This first one is my Sex Hormone Binding Globulin results on top and my Testosterone levels on the bottom.

This one is my Estrogen levels.

Still not nearly as high enough as I would like (not by a longshot) but still not bad overall for low dosages on both medications (spiro/premarin)

edit,,,

sigh... before you could see this thread, it was intercepted by the rule police and I guess posting a thread with 4 whole linked pics is too much for one post. Well it is either that or the site has just had enough of me for today. So once this actually hits the boards, I will post the second post with the pics of me.

Seriously? Wow. I guess I am just hypercritical of myself.

Although I did compare for the first time a pic that was taken the same day as my avatar pic and these and I was pretty impressed with the changes.

Although I am planning to have FFS (Once HRT has had a year or two to do it's thing.) as that wonderful mountain of an addition from my jewish heritage otherwise known as a nose has gotta go on Jenny Craig.

You all are far too kind.

One thing that I just kind of smile at now is the fact that I always used to think to myself when seeing some of your photos is that "Wow she looks good but I'll never be able to photograph myself in one of those spaghetti strapped tank tops as my shoulders are way too big and manly and I have chest hair for days and am flatter than the areas between Elena's Scottish Highlands...

Don't ask me why that was just one of my silly hangups.

Definitely feel as though, little by little, but I am getting there.

4 Months? Wow. Very impressive, you are very beautiful.

Is that much drop in testosterone about typical?

Absolutely nuthin wrong with the highlands there! That's where most of my family came from before crossin the pond. It just sucks having a nose that looks like one of the more jagged peaks off the Firth of Clyde! I've been back there a couple times to visit my Great Aunt Agnes on Skye, she's the one suggested my middle name be Aideen. ;)

Talk about a loaded question.

I have NO idea what is considered typical regarding T drop.

So much has to do with each of our body chemistries, age, etc.

It probably wouldn't hurt to maybe have a thread where people could post this kind of info up as I did but again, (cue mantra of HRT:) "Your Mileage May Vary."

As long as you are under the care of a medical professional that has experience with this kind of stuff, your ship is being piloted well.

      I felt having someone to talk to with out judgement really helped me too. In some ways it was an outlet for my anxiety's about coming out to my family. Once that was done, the therapist was their to help me navigate my transition with all its ups and downs.

      Hi Arianna, The thought of coming out to family is terrifying early on. Heck, it's terrifying until we've done it. At first it was a petrifying fear for me. In time, I just couldn't keep up the double life with them. I had to be able to be me. Both my parrents have passed, so I chose my younger sibling and sent her a coming out email, then held my breath figuratively. The next morning the reply came. She not only accepted me, she was very supportive! As I read it I laughed and wept with joy and relief. My two older siblings accept me too. I'm now Carla with my family, and have been for almost a year now. Even my oldest sister who I was most afraid would reject me accepts me.  On the other hand, the one who was my best friend has not accepted me as Carla. And I thought he would accept me. We never really know.  I hope one day you are able to be yourself with your family, whoever you turn out to be. Just remember it's a jourrney, there's no need to do everything fast. Take your time and do things when you are ready. There's no rush to even put a specific label on yourself yet.  Explore yourself. Get to know who you are. And above all, love yourself. We will love you until you can love yourself!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      Hi Natie   Welcome   It's good that you have taken your steps. It is something you would always wonder about, and need to explore.   I know cultures and people differ, but do not write off your parents completely. It is good to stay in contact, even if they never know the full extent of your change. I live as androgyne, and am usually dressed female. My brother, for one, along with his wife have seen me dressed in a local supermarket wearing girly clothes (skirt, tights etc). I suspect they were not impressed, but in our family there is no direct predjudice.  I have never explained anything to the family, except my partner and son. As I am not physically changing (surgery) and unlikely to officially change gender I think, for me, it would be too complicated (especially as my mother is very forgetful so I would have to continuously explain things). They accept me as I am with no problems.   You will find your way. Just to tread carefully for the first few steps until you get to know yourself and your environment better. You will become more confident with time   Tracy x

      Hi Eva   Welcome   I know the feeling of lack of trans folk as I don't know any at all here, although it is some while since I last investigated. Logically there must be many! It does not worry me, and I have a steadily changing circle of friends, but the change in viewpoint means I just have to be aware of how may partner may see things.   Tracy

      Very good news   Tracy

      The Web research site Snopes.com looked into this case, because of the predictable right wing media misinformation being disseminated.  You can read it for yourself here:  https://www.snopes.com/miguel-martinez-transgender-bathroom-controversy/   The bottom line is that yes, this case is horrific, the perp is evil and needs to be locked away, but the crime has nothing to do with access by trans women to public restrooms.  The folks who are most outraged by the transgender aspect of this story are the same folks who try to ignore all the politicians, priests and rich businessmen who have been accused or convicted of or admitted to sexual assault over the years.  Where was, and is, the right's outrage about that?   Carolyn Marie
