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.

They were definitely worth the wait :)

Wow! I prefer the candids over the artsy ones, fyi.

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.

      Hello "Girl inside my head", welcome!  Certainly do dive in and look about, and ask questions.     Do you have a name that you use, that we could call you?  Cheers, Jani  
    • Jani423
      That's what I took it to mean, that they could do more.  I think he was just giving an honest appraisal.  30% in top management is really good and I would think this is a high number for financial businesses overall.      Jani

      That sounds pretty good. I wonder why he said it was a "mixed review," unless its just to say that more work needs to be done.  Thanks, Jani.   Carolyn Marie

      New user as of today.    I struggle as a male but I'm a female trapped in a man's body.    I think and act like a girl but in a man's body.    I someday hope to be the real me.

      Thank you all so much. I really appreciate your responses!   The consensus seems to be to keep it to myself, and be prepared to document potential harassment, and only then make an issue out of it. I think that is the route I'll take. Phew - that's a load off!   @tracy_j, your experience sounds a lot like my potential situation. I really appreciate you sharing that.   I've read the HR policy on the dress code, and it says not to wear anything casual - to keep it business appropriate, which I think even in the unlikely event I'm brave enough to wear woman's clothing to work, so long as it's business-attire, it technically shouldn't be an issue. I took your advice looking at legal issues, and if I'm understanding it correctly, both my state and the federal law protect against discrimination based on sex which may include pregnancy, gender identity, or orientation as well as biological sex organs.

      Congratulations Shawnna on your one year anniversary.  I hope all your dreams come true!    Jani

      Wow, it's been a year on HRT. I have come a long way in a year. If you told me I would still be on cloud 9 back then, I wouldn't have believed you. But here I am and still feeling great. Thank you all for being here and supporting me through this last year. I am looking forward to the things to come.    Hugs    Shawnna
