Ermahgerd! Hermerns!

My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday. :)

Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.

Seat belts are not required but highly advised.  Actually i took me time to feel much and even then changes were slow and subtle.  Enjoy your journey!

Well, so far I feel exactly the same. I'm assuming the oestrogen is just counteracting the initial testosterone surge of the leuproreline injection. Hopefully I'll notice something once that's over. <_<

Time.........  I also felt impatient but remember just like puberty years past for all the changes to be visible.  Oddly i sometimes forget the amount of change that has happened.  Perhaps the most noticeable changes took place when my breasts were extremely sensitive during early growth.  Don't worry you will have the "joy" of the ouchies as well.

 

Hugs,

Its more the fact that mentally I don't feel any different, which is why I'm assuming it's due to the surge in testosterone. Hopefully by next week my T-factories will have shut down and the oestrogen will start to do its work.

For some of us even the mental changes can take a few days. The first thing I felt was a sense of calm. Remember it's not a sprint it's a journey. Enjoy it, Slow and steady is always the best. If the changes happened over night we would loose our minds. I know I would have. 

 

Many hugs

Ermahgerd!

 

I almost peed my pants laughing at the introduction!!!! I have a similar saying that I send out on some birthdays on facebook. Any updates on how you're feeling? I was 46 when I started HRT as well, that was three years ago. It changed my life sooo profoundly that all I can say is ermahgerd !!!! Relly looking forward to hearing  how you're doing. Some dread the crying spells but for me I have learned to appreciate them so much as it constantly reminds me of how hormones put me in touch with my sensitive side. 

 

Still Laughing,

Not hugely different; it's just taken the edge off so that my brain is no longer screaming at me. Also, my skin is starting to get softer and less greasy and I don't stink like a man when I sweat. I'm at the start of week 4 so still early days.

HRT, your mileage may vary....:)

 

For myself by week 4, my mind just felt a lot clearer. Other trans friends I know were complete emotional roller coasters, and other trans friends felt little emotional change. Remember your watching grass grow!!!

      We hear so much about HRT and surgeries here, but the truth is facial hair removal is by far on the top of my list. If I can ever do one thing about myself physically, it would be that.    Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      LOL!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      I'm such a terrible poet that it would be embarrassing. I did write one thing in that forum, but it came closer to being a psalm that a poem. Oh well.   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      Hi Amy,   I agree with MaryEllen. Your breasts should already be getting sore and I definitely noticed a change in the 4th month. My mom is a C cup and I am a solid B after being on HRT for three years. I am also on Spiro and Estradiol.   Tess

      I have to temper my excitement a bit because what's right for me is not absolutely right for someone else BUT, having MY facial hair removed has been thee absolute best thing I've done throughout my transition!!!  I wish I'd done it before I even knew I'd transition one day.  I wish I'd done it in my early 20's when it would have been easier.  I've spent more out-of-pocket money on laser and electrolysis than any other transition related expense and if I had to choose just one thing to do, facial hair removal is what I'd choose.  It's SUCH a powerful gender cue.  I'm obviously biased but it seems to me like anyone who is AMAB but identifies as anything but male, would thoroughly LOVE not having facial hair.  I wish you the best as you discover and express yourSELF.

      Hello Amy, You should start to see some development within 2-3 months. Perhaps sooner. You may also notice some tenderness too.  It takes a cis girl at least 3 years to achieve full breast growth so you should expect to develop about the same. Nope, they don't burst forth overnight.   The general rule of thumb is that you will end up one cup size smaller than your mother but this isn't etched in stone. Hope this helps.   MaryEllen

      Hello All:   I was just wondering if I can get any average estimate on how long it takes for breast development when on HRT.  I have started taking Spiro and estradiol on January 20th 2018 and just wanted to find out from everyone when they roughly started to develop and when?  I know everyone is different, but a good rough time line would be nice.  I am really hoping for a nice average C cup size.  I know my mother and sister are both C cups and not very big C, but just average.   I am just really looking forward to having real breast instead of always using my breast forms.  On the plus side of things, I have noticed that since I have been on HRT, that I have lost some weight in my mid-section and when stepping on the scale, I am 20 lbs. lighter.   Hope to hear back   Amy

      Me too Bobbi, I’m glad you’re doing well...  It truly is never worth it there’s so much here that we don’t realize until after we’ve given up, as they say hindsight is 2020. After surviving incredible odds after a bad accident and being resuscitated several times I can tell you you would give anything for just one more breath right after you realize what you gave up. I spent nearly 50 days trying to get that one more breath and that was enough for me I can’t imagine having to deal with that again. hugs, Jae
    • jae bear
      Yes, I agree it is a bit painful but for me it helps shed light in a place that hasn’t seen it in a long time. hugs, Jae
