I'd make a gallery and date them. Simple and to the point.

 

Hugs!

The gallery feature allows you to save images that aren't available to the general public. If you have questions, I'll try to help, or Jackie (or one of the other mods) can probably give you a quick tutorial. I'm only marginally competent.

I can't seem to make my pictures private, Like i saw the privacy option but the only privacy option it had was "Everyone can see this album", there is no "only me" & i tried clicking on it because I thought it would 'uncheck' the option but it didn't do that either.

Only actual members of the Forums can see the pictures in your albums unless you import them into these posts here.  Non Members get a warning that they do not have permission to view them, that is why I tell members to "LINK" the pictures into these posts instead of inserting them.  Mod's and Admins are "All Seeing" in the Galleries anyway.  I saw your picture and it looks like you have something to show off.  If you are following our rules about what you can put in the Galleries you should not have any problems, and if someone gives you a problem, let the Mods or Admins know via PM and we have ways of fixing things.

I'm removing my album then... since some photos won't necessarily be appropriate down the road since i'll eventually want a reminder of what my bare body looked like at one point... I think instagram has an archive for photos to keep them out of public hands so I'll try that. 
 

Also, I may have something to show off but it's the personality that counts ❤️ Thank you Vicky!!

Can't you just keep them in a specific folder in your phone?  That way they're not out in the inter web.

Good Call Jani. Viv put into a folder in computer or phone that way only you see then. You put then on gram and they easy to hack into

Yes I've already done that, I even have an 2.5" 750 GB HDD dedicated to my entire life photos with family and just everything, even some brainstorming for projects and such are on there still haha. But the problem is i'm afraid of my storage devices potentially becoming corrupted/water damage/lost, like i lost a phone with some invaluable pictures and video on a road trip about 3 years ago before i could back them up to my HDD ? So I wanted an online storage for my albums that way if anything happened to them, i can get them back. So i made an entirely new account on instagram, where as it's private & i'm not going to add anyone with that account. Then i'm going to archive the photos so it's like another wall from the public, i set a 2 factor authentication and an entirely new email account just for the account. I feel 99% confident they'll be safe now! ?

I have a couple of external hard drives for that reason, and one of them is in a fire resistant lock box except when I am synchronizing it with my HD.   Google has a storage place on the Cloud for that, as well as Adobe apps.

      WOW your looking good Berni. You can really see the difference in your before and after photos.
    • ElizabethStar
      My experiences have been a little different. When I first met with my Endo we did the meet and greet, talked about goals, expectations and the risks. She wrote my scripts right there on the spot then sent me down the hall for blood work. I live in an informed consent state. Went beck 2 months later for a check-up/blood work and some adjustments were made. Then Covid hit and it was 5 months before my next check-up and blood test. As of now, I need to check-in with my Endo and see what she wants to do, I need refills by the end of next month and everything is still booked up for weeks.

      Wonderful job! Xxx

      I've been contemplating the same choices but have been leaning toward zero-depth. I just don't see myself dating a guy again. If I find myself in need of being penetrated I still have that other option. But I'm there yet so I can't say that's my final decision.    
    • Jeanette West
      And here I was, looking for a place to ask: when do other girls change their names? I've been on HRT for two years, coming up in four months my FFS, so I was thinking I would file the paperwork with the courts next week. For myself I am sick of hearing my old name and really want to change to my new name.  
    • Jackie C.
      Well, I've got full depth and while I wasn't done HEALING for three to six months, I was fully active after six weeks and able to stand for long periods faster than that. Something like two or three weeks. I weathered a twenty-hour train ride a week afterwards (I hated it, but I got through it). Really sitting was the big hurdle. Dilation was a bigger pain because four times a day for the first month. That really eats into your time.   Surgical time depends on your doctor. Mine can do full depth in three to four hours usually (according to her anyway, I was out for the whole thing).   As for sex, well it depend on whether or not you want vaginal penetration. Your clitoris will work fine either way, but you need a canal if you're going to be using someone's penis from the front.   For me it was a non-issue. While I am very, very gay my dysphoria wouldn't settle for zero-depth despite the relative safety, ease, etc... Honestly, if I could have swung it, I would have gone for the abdominal pull-through method, but it's harder to find surgeons that will do it and I have additional medical concerns.   Even with the upcoming revision (and attendant scheduling nightmare), I'm solidly behind my choice.   Hugs!

      Pretty much what @Phi said. I talked with the Endo, then she sent me downstairs for blood work. Repeat visits for blood work every two months until my estrogen levels were female-normal. That took two or three tries. Then every six months to make sure my body wasn't doing anything too out of the ordinary. Now I'm down to one a year.   Oh, I should point out that I get my blood drawn and labs done about a week before I see my endo. That way we have something to talk about during the visit.   Hugs!
    • Phi
      My first visit was about to get to know each other, talking about my wishes and my goals and possible side effects. They took lots of blood. A week later I started HRT and had to visit every 6 weeks until my dosage was right. These were just short visits for taking blood samples, asking how I feel, whether there are any problems. When E-levels were within range we scheduled the next appointment 4 to 6 month later. When everything is alright, I have to visit every six month.

      You can read plenty of people talking about their first visit to an endocrinologist, but having done that, wondering what happens at follow up visits? And how often they happen as time goes by?

      When was your last menstrual cycle ... I was getting a checkup and this nurse had to ask me those questions...

      Hey  So finally meet with my Vaginal Plasma surgeon. I had to wait two year but it was a goal come true. To tell the truth i had a hard  time concertation as he started to explain the different types of procedures cause i was so exited to be there. He want into great detail about the recovery and the dilate period of each one. He it made clear that he was suggestion a Non Canal surgery. Although, he has done both. \ His best point was the recovery and dilate time . For Canal 3 to 6 months for Non Canal 6 to 9 weeks. He pitch the idea that with a  Non Canal  i would  not need to dilate for live.( 6weeks to 9), not to mention a 3 to 4 surgery compare to 7hr surgery, He also stated that the recovery time was almost double with a Canal pro then not.  My question is has anyone had either and was there a big diff in the sex with a Canal or without To be honest i am self employed. Six months of recovery  time would properly destroy me finically and send me back on to the street or a shelter which i am trying to avoid. So i could use a little advice if you have every found your self in a similar situation and if you regret  picking the wrong procedure   Ty for the support Lexi
