Presenting Jody the guinea pig! Again...

Recommended Posts

Well tonight I started using Efflora, a generic version of Vaniqua. Twice a day, four to six weeks to see results.

It's supposed to turn facial hair, notice I didn't say thick woolly beards, into fine soft slow growing girly peach fuzz. So what? No more regular shaving. Maybeee??? even waxing. I've been studying how that's done. Do it wrong, way bad day!

Why doesn't she just spend her money on electrolysis? I don't know, maybe I played with too many chemistry sets when I was a kid. Just to know if it can be done. Just to be different. Maybe I'm crazy?

This will take a while, I'll bump this thread then.

I often wonder about strange ideas like this. I'm not a scientist, just my own science project. So things I have wondered may never be known.

Like for instance: Can a pre-op successfully take Livetra for a bigger, well you know, after starting HRT? I could not find any information so I was too scared to personally try it. Even the drug manufacturers were tight lipped. In ten days I personally from experience will never know. Just another of my theories, the hypothesis I will not have proven. That idea forever goes to the shelf, I'll be post-op. Sigh...

Oh wait, I wonder if it would help a post-op. Just for a moment picture this; she meets a well endowed gentleman and desires him to help her dilate more naturally? She takes the Livetra to gain extra depth... Ooooh, touch my navel... touch my navel! Giggle. It's getting late and I'm only getting sillier. I have the pre flight jitters, so insomnia prevails.

Wow! This Efflora tightens my face better than mint mask and ot stays on. Maybe I found the fountain of youth? Go to bed Jody! OK tuck me in. Hug. JodyAnn

I'm sure you are excited dear one. i'm a few weeks away from a procedure myself and it tends to fill my mind at times. If that face stuff works let me know. It seems cruel that most of my body only has soft thin feminine hairs while my face can still be sandpaper. I keep thinking of climbing into the chair for some electric zaps but i haven't been found guilty yet.

Hugs,

Charlize

Just back from my zapping session last night, and if there was someway to side step this, I would have ! But 15K + and 3+ years later it's getting done, ouch...

May the magic elixor come to your facial rescue

Hugs

Hi JodyAnn, please keep us posted on how that works. I have had 3 laser hair removal sessions to date and started HRT 3 weeks ago. My beard has thinned and grows far more slowly but still annoys me. If there is a way to get around the smell of burning hair I would be all for it.

Hugs,

Allison

Dateline Arizona,

Day two: Only a very small amount is required to do my whole face and neck. I washed my face from yesterday's two applications, shaved dry and then applied the morning amount. It rubs in like lotion. Five minutes about, it has absorbed and my makeup goes right over it. It feels sort of like foundation. I noticed the dry shave was smoother with less razor drag. Very small difference but noticeable.

The 1.5 gram tube costs $40, I bought two at $67, four only costs $119 and their are coupon discounts and free shipping. A whole bunch of information for Eflora is on the web. It is a prescription drug. For me mail-order is a huge savings from Walgreen's. Don't misrepresent, or try to pull a fast one and it always comes without a hitch.

I am also wondering if Eflora will help with electrolysis? I could slowly let my facial hair grow out for sessions, tweezing would be about the same as a genetic woman. The hair growth wound not be a dead give-away and out me. At the point the hair is removed with wax it will come in even slower. The hairs will be soft with no blunt ends so stubble is not a scratchy deterrent.

More as it happens. Sorry, no film at eleven, well except the Eflora film on my face. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program. Hug. JodyAnn

Quick update: I'm not planning daily reports, but today's tid bit.

Realizing this medication works slowly, I'm not tauting any immediate results. I have been able to make subtle changes already. I have stopped using my Dermablend concealer, the Eflora when rubbed in is moist enough for powders to stick to and looks just fine. A wonderfully small amount is needed full face so it could be more cost effective than I first thought.

Another cost factor maybe is less frequent need to purchase new razor blades. I use Schick Titanium at about $12 a month any decrease can be factored as a cost reduction of the medication. More when results actually show. Jody

      I didn't get misgendered at work today! I wore foundation in addition to my usual eye and lip makeup, and though (to me anyway) subtle, it seemed to make a difference! I waahed it off before bed, but I'll do it again and take a pic tomorrow so I can get your thoughts...

      Thank You both for the replies!    I haven't considered the downloadable pamphlets, because she doesn't speak english (there isn't too much information about this in our country) , and I thought it was enough what I was explaining to her, but I might be saying something wrong, or she might misunderstood me somehow. I don't know yet, so I'm gonna try again.  I'm gonna post an introduction soon, and I'd like to interact with the people here. I found transgender people are one of the most patient and nicest people out there, so thank you for blindly accepting me! :)    Heiko

      Thanks so much for the advice! I  just talked to my parents about cutting my hair, and they seem cool with the wig idea too!  ٩( ᐛ )و

      They’re all so cool! Keep up the amazing work!

      I got some makeup that was serviceable but pretty crappy from Amazon by just blindly guessing what would work for me, but later after I came out to some friends they went shopping with me at Macy's where a very friendly attendant matched with some makeup, did my whole face, and gave me some samples to keep using before I bought anything. Are you out to anyone who could take you yet? It's way less intimidating if you're not going by yourself.

      I do have comic ideas in mind. But for some friends I might start being their concept artist, they said they would pay me. That's the goal

      My current therapist (not specialized in gender identity issues) is the first and only person I've shared the daily struggle I face with my body .  She tried to understand me at first but dismissed it after only two sessions. Her reason: my posture wasn't "manly" enough to qualify as FTM. Many of my hobbies fit the "male" category though, that is the "geeky male" category not the all "macho" one. I don't like sports but I'm quite into gaming and comic books. However, like many, I also enjoy non "gender specific activities" of course. I don't act "manly" so it is easy for me to hide the fact that I'm not ok with my female body. The way I move and speak hide my male self. My posture is shy and awkward and my vocal cords only seem to produce girly sounds. I wish my voice was deeper but it isn't. I'm a bloody soprano leggero, which is rather high. With vocal lessons though, my voice has dropped but just slightly so, it's still very girl-like. I'm not into skirts or dresses, I attempted to be but ended up going back to pants. I like t-shirts with images from movies and games but I also like skinny trousers with prints.  What kills me ends up being the way I move and talk. My awkward, shy and geeky self makes people perceive me simply as a quirky girl.  I've been experience body dysphoria ever since I was 12 (I'm 24 now). Still, my therapist didn't believe I could be trans because I don't "act like a man" and the fact that I've never felt attraction towards a girl and like blokes instead didn't help me much.   I don't believe you have to fit the male stereotype to qualify. So what if your tastes aren't all considered "guy tastes"? If you feel miserable in a female body, no matter your interests, there's indeed a possibility you might be FTM.   I've scheduled an appointment with a therapist who specializes in this matters and I'm hoping to finally be properly heard. Maybe you could do the same. I think it could help you clarify your situation. I find it a bit scary though. I'm afraid it'll make me go into an even darker place. Still, I believe it must be done. Think about it. No rush.    I hope this helped a bit. I really wouldn't discard the possibility. I know cis guys who share many interests, no matter what gender this interests are normally associated with.

      Do you have plans as a book or comic illustrator? Writers and businesses pay illustrators well and I'm sure there are many venues that would appreciate your talents.
