Linde, there’s a place like what you described in Kansas City called the transgender institute. They do something similar however I have no idea exactly what services they offer. I didn’t get the facilitators number for group because everyone left in a hurry. It’s a mixed group so there are both mtf and ftm. The facilitator/moderator is a trans man. I don’t know exactly how they run the group because they seem to rotate moderators. It’s only been one visit.

Could you contact the Kansas City center and see if they know the facilitator of your group?  They might be even the sponsors for it, and could provide you with further help.  I know it is a long way from Springfield to Kansas City, but email and phones work pretty ell for some of the stuff, too.

I really feel that you need some moral support and a little holding by the hand b like minded people who do not want to take advantage of you.

I wish we would be closer to be able to help you with our efforts here.

Hugs

Linde

Thanks Linde, I have not tried to see if they are affiliated, however the center where they have the meetings is independently owned and funded as far as I know. They are very well funded. I’m going to try email but so far all my emails have gone unanswered by every organization I’ve sent one to. It’s a little frustrating because in this internet age you almost always expect a reply of some kind. Maybe calling will be better? I’m really not sure. But I’m going to try whatever I can think of or whatever is suggested.

Sometimes people don't look at their email all the time, specifically if the are volunteers, and for those cases a phone call might help, because if it is a cell phone, it is hard to ignore!

 

I wish you a lot of luck!

My  boobs get on my Tits If you will pardon the expression.

 

Ive been on E for 3 years just gone and have a fair B cup. Its no fun. I cant lay down like i use to. They hurt much of the time especially when im up and down stairs etc. Even sometimes when i bend over to pick something up on the floor. and what makes it worse is i dont think they have stopped growing either. I still get the tape measure out once in a while and even now i have gained half an inch in 2 months. in other words i have added 7.5 inches to my chest since i started. My body is still getting use to it. To think i wanted them  so bad i was even willing to have implants. Glad i didnt. Im not sure if genetics played a part as far as i was concerned as my Mum was a very small lady with assets to match so i have no idea why mine have developed as they have. When they started one was bigger than the other but over time they have evened out to the point you wouldnt notice much diffrence between the 2

 

Be careful what you wish for 😊

Mine are still different.  The left side is about 1/2 cup larger than the right side.  I am also a B, and working on them for close to 5 years now.  They are still as sensitive as can be, and each time I touch the nipples, it hurts.  Having hurting boobs for close to 5 years is not really fun!

Mine are negligible at best. They seem to go in spurts though. The last month or so I have seen some growth, but nothing worth writing home about. But they are at least now very noticeable no matter what I wear from loose hoodies to tight tanks. But it’s only been 7+ months. So I still have a ways to go before I get upset with what I get. My mom is rather busty but her sister isn’t. And my dads family are either dd+ or pine boards. So I have no clue where I’ll end up. No sisters either. What I really want is for my nipples to get bigger. They haven’t changed at all yet. Everyone says they see change there. But not me. Same old boy looking nips. Maybe they’re just taking their time. 

But no matter what happens it’s light years ahead of the hard square pecs I used to sport. So I take solace in that. :) 

Hi! For nipples, try using Nipple suckers. I currently use the manual twist up type, and i just purchased silicone type you pinch to get suction. The twist up type i use now works. Try not to over twist, but more of a comfortable pressure, that will allow you to do more 'repetitions,' and this will help the nipples to build tissue properly with out damaging the skin. Always moisturize and  massage before and after to help with blood flow. Pace your self, and after a while you will notice a difference, and above all be safe and patient!

Best of luck! Ellora.

Just need to share that I thought that I was done with my breast development cause I have a B cup.  But for the past 2 days it started with just my left boob with it hurting and it hurts more so like at the base of my breast almost like a pulled a muscle and now my right side is kinda of joining in and it just hurts.  I am finding myself starting to feel myself up and massage it even more just to make it feel better

Personally, I barely had any breast development since I started my transition in 2016. They are there but not really visible while wearing a shirt for example. Think part of the problem is that I do not gain weight easily since breasts are just fat. For whatever reason, I lost more weight when I got on Estrogen.

Hi! Interesting. I have lost some weight, and a little weight distribution. I’m a little over the 2 and a half mark on my HRT, and haven’t had any breast soreness yet, but I’ve notice some breast shape happening and my nipple area is up to something. I’m having my Orchie just before my three month mark, so it should be interesting how my Doctor changes my Lady Meds. I’m on a low dosage of E and T🚫 atm, and I hope she will increase the E and anything else that might help 😊 

I’m planing on increasing my glute work out after I fully heal from my Orchie, in hopes I can benefit from the HRT to help with a womanly figure. I really want to increase my hip and glutes. I would be happy with a C cup, or at least some breast that bounce a little. 😉. But I don’t need large breasts, just enough. I remember that my mom had nice breasts, so if that plays into it, I should be ok.

Interesting.  I am a little over 2 years into HRT but mine only hurt the first 6 months, random soreness that got intense sometimes.  Tapered off and nothing since though.

This is all so surprising to me. My boobs have hurt almost every day for like the last 8-9 months. I’m developed up to a full A now and still growing. And I’m a year in. Definitely beyond the hiding stage unless I wore a binder. I’m hoping for a C but accept that some of that’s gonna be silicone. I’m just happy to have anything really. Lol.

Wow, that is interesting.  I was reading online that the average breast growth usually starts within the 3 to 6 month mark and then it tapers out and then it picks back up in Year 2 and have been read that usually year 2 and year 3 are the years when we see the most changes.

 

But then again, this is just average and we are all different and we are all doing different methods of HRT and have different doses and also it comes to genetics.

 

I myself wish I could have a C, but my natural breast is a B and thinking that is how big I am going to get to for natural cause as I have found out that my mom was a B till she had kids and now she is a C, my sister was a B till she got breast augmentation and now she is a C.  My Aunt and grandma are a B till they had kids and now they are a C.  So figure that all the women in my family have B till they have kids so that means I will be stuck with a B till I get Breast Augmentation.

 

Here is a link that I have been liking that has a pretty easy chart on the development and for the most part it shows that the first year is slow off and then year 2 and 3 really take off hard core.  But like how I said, that everyone is different and we all change at different rates

I hear around up to the  two + year mark is when growth occurs, and levels out? I guess it ranges with people. I hope you are happy with what HRT has brought you, inside and out!

The tape and a friend say that I’m a B cup, and when I wear a T-shirt, it’s getting close to when I might have to change on what types of shirts I wear. Cause it’s going from looking like I’ve been “working out” out to, hmmm umm, 😂 😂. But I’m not at my 3 month mark yet, and I’m sure some of this is just weight distribution, soooo. 

A noticeable C cup would be nice, but if they got bigger I wouldn’t mind, and I would still be happy if they didn’t get big. I don’t think I’m going to try getting silicone, at least not until I’ve seen what the HRT and Orchie do to help me. And then I will reevaluate everything. I am actually looking forward to sore boobies, 😂, it will make me feel more feminine 😊. Sure I may regret saying that, but seriously it will make me feel all feminine 😊😊

Lmao! If you have kids around you surely will! My 4 yr old has this super knack for hitting all my sore parts. He kicked my toe 3 times the day after surgery. And he’s jammed his little elbows into my boobs about a million and one times so far. And it never feels any better. Lolol. Other than that it’s not an issue. 

I will say that when they hurt pretty good, they don’t have much sensitivity to anything “fun”. Not like when they don’t hurt. Then they are like little pleasure receptors just itching to get played with. 😜

Oh noes! 😂 I already get kneed and step on in areas I prefer not to be, 😂 I can’t wait til that won’t happen anymore! 😂 

ugh 😂 I guess it will be inevitable that the boobies will be sore and poked, 😂. It will Be sweet and sour tho, cause the soreness is something that will make me happy and uncomfortable. 

Atm, since my libido has dropped a little, my nipples aren’t as sensitive as they were before. And that’s saying something, cause they can feel really good when they are touched. They are as “fun” as the other obvious “fun” places. I understand that things can change how things feel and I’m ready for that. 😊

What does your doctor say? Maybe they can increase your dosage? Or maybe they help trouble shoot what might be inhibiting your change?

Oh definitely, I am a solid A cup now.  And though growth has slowed down some, it hasn't stopped.  Hoping for a B when/if it stops, though from the varied responses, anything is possible :P.

I did find myself relishing the soreness a little just for this reason,  for me it meant the physical changes were getting going and it filled me with immense excitement :).  

 

Getting my weight down and getting back a flat stomach was a ton of work but it also of course make my breasts more prominent and helped me be more content with what I have now.  So no stress either way, even if they don't grow anymore.

I'm at a very similar place in my breast development.  I was at an A cup at month 3 of HRT then my growth slowed a bit...maybe due to being taken off Spiro at month 3.  Who knows?  The pain never ceased during those 3 months off my T-blocker though.  After being put back on a much lower dose of Spiro and a higher dose of E at month 6 to month 8, my breasts have grown a half cup larger.  I currently fit well in some B cup bras but a few others, not so much.  The brand and style seem to make a huge difference even though they are all B cup.  My recent weight loss and overall weight distribution has also made my breasts a little more noticeable.  If I only get to a B cup, I'll be completely satisfied.

ooo thats good 😃 Yes, anything is possible 😃 , and I hope you get the boobies that you feel good with  😃

 

I know right! I love anything that makes me feel like there is progress! No Pain No Gain? 😛  😃 Ive noticed that losing weight has made my chest area more noticeable. I received a compliment, a friend thinking that Ive been exercising , but its actually my boobies slowing showing.  😃😃 !! I cant wait until its Obvious 😃 

Im happy that you feel content with everything, that is the outlook to have. I will be content too, and I dont plan to get top surgery, I want to be as natural as possible. I do need to work out more, the hrt will only do so much, especially if i want a nice figure 😃

      Yes I agree to staying online. At least you have friends you can relate to here which is good, epecially if things get tough.   Tracy

      Good luck! I don't know how well it will relate to your job but I have a general link here which gives a flavour of things in the NHS.  It, and the links from it, may be a help. https://www.nhsemployers.org/retention-and-staff-experience/diversity-and-inclusion/policy-and-guidance/sexual-orientation   Private companies do not usually publish their policies online (as far as I know) but NHS trust and probably local government documents are likely to be available. A quick look found this for Newcastle: http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/downloads/policies/Personnel/GenderTransitionatWorkPolicy201808.pdf   I had a little look and found some info which private companies give but it would take a bit of searching to find details specific to gender, but may exist although maybe only in large companies. I did come across a council document though:   https://wolverhampton.moderngov.co.uk/documents/s36286/Appendix - Transgender Guidance Notes.pdf   Tracy

      I'm sure as Carolyn Marie said, most of us had doubts.    Me personally, I had a lot of doubts the months before I got on hrt. But by the time I got it, I reasoned that I'd never be happy to keep going on as a man. So I took the plunge, and so far transition has been pretty gentle to me. I'm very content with my choice and where I see transition taking me now.    Really at the end of the day, it's your decision though. If you aren't already, maybe consider talking with a gender therapist, or find a community meeting local to you. Some ways to get some perspective.

      Hello, Crystal Elaine, and welcome to Trans Pulse.  I want to start by congratulating you on being open minded, non-judgemental, loving and supportive.  It is wonderful to hear about, as its not as common an occurrence as we would hope.   What you've done together so far is a great start.  Other suggestions I can make include letting him dress and sleep in a nightgown (some have sexual relations this way, and I hear it can really invigorate a couple's sex life).  Helping him with makeup, buying a wig, wearing small items of jewelry (that he can hide from others, like an ankle bracelet) can also help with feeling feminine.   I'm sure others will have great ideas, too.  Thanks for asking, and best wishes to you both.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
    • Carolyn Marie
      Many of us have doubts about virtually every aspect of our transition.  Having doubts and questions about HRT is not only normal, it is logical and sensible.  That's because HRT carries risks, as does any prescription medication, and those risks can be significant, especially if you have some types of pre-existing conditions.   My advice is to read as much as you can from reputable sites and publications, starting with the WPATH Standards of Care.  There is a whole lot of good information about it, including on this web site.  Being informed and knowledgeable is important.  I've had to educate some of my own doctors, which is not an unusual thing.   If you have specific questions, we'll try to answer them, but we aren't medical professionals, so be guided by your doctors and by your own informed mind.   Carolyn Marie

      Hey everyone,    Thanks for all the advice from my last post.    Today, I went to an endo doctor, and they say I might be able to hopefully start hormones in the next couple of weeks. When they told me that, I was excited but still hesitant. I always keep thinking that I'm going to have regrets or something. Is that normal? Did any of you have this feeling when starting hormones?    Thanks in advance!!

      My husband recently discovered by complete accident that he likes cross dressing. When I say by accident, I had seen videos of boyfriends/husbands doing their girlfriends/wives makeup, and I asked him to do mine. After he was done, I asked to do his. To both of our surprise, he really liked it. Now we are pretty adventurous in the bedroom, and we decided this could be a fun role play (my husband is into domination/humiliation). However, he didn't feel dominated or humiliated. He felt empowered and "pretty" to use his own words. For the rest of the night, he wore one of my dresses and a full face of makeup. The next day, we went out and bought a wig to complete his look. That night, I taught him how to do his own makeup, he put on one of my dresses and his wig, and he absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, it made me feel extremely uncomfortable. When I looked at him, I didn't feel like I was looking at my husband. I felt as though I had lost my husband.    After discussing this with my husband, he explained that he just liked not having to feel masculine. He likes getting in touch with his feminine side. Now my husband is a correctional officer who grew up in a strict southern baptist household. We have been exploring his sexuality together recently, and he has come to the decision that he not attracted to men, but he does still like to dress as a woman. He does not feel as though he is a woman, he is just tired of feeling like he has to live up to the standard masculine social norms.    We decided that I may have been uncomfortable because we just jumped straight into it instead of easing in. So we have decided to work up to him completely cross dressing by doing things that are deemed feminine. Last night, we did a foot scrub, painted our toe nails, and did a facial mask. I would love suggestions of other activities we can do to not only help me ease into the idea of my husband cross dressing, but to also allow him to do what makes him feel comfortable and helps him relax. I would also love any advice on what has helped anyone else through the same situation.   I love my husband dearly, and it's been a while since I've seen my husband that happy and relaxed. I am trying to support him the best that I can, but I am also confused by this.
