FtM HRT effects on orgasms?

Recommended Posts


Bit of a weird maybe awkward subject I dunno so I guess I'll just dive in?

Soo, I've been on HRT for about seven years now and prior to starting on it I used to have pretty good orgasms, like they'd often (I don't remember if it was every time or not) send tingling sensations out through my body, sometimes right to my fingertips, and it felt great and would take a minute or so to fade. But now my orgasms are really kind of meh in comparison, like it still feels good and I get the release but it's not as intense and the sensation doesn't spread anywhere. I don't know if it's because I'm too impatient to work myself up enough to get it to be intense, I had a long term boyfriend till about 3 years or so ago but no one since then to help me get worked up enough. Unfortunately my memory is as leaky as a sieve so I don't remember if I'd already started losing the intense orgasms prior to our breakup. I mostly kind of forgot they used to be better to be honest, but I was thinking about it recently and wondered if this is normal for transguys on HRT or if this is just a me problem. I was on Sustanon for a few years before finally switching to Nebido about a year and a half ago, and I've had recurring pain issues that mean I'm on Decapeptyl as well, so maybe it's a side effect of that, I don't know. I've heard that 'male orgasms' and 'female orgasms' are different so I expected some kind of change to them but not for them to just be rubbish in comparison. So uh, I don't suppose anyone else happens to have had a similar experience or has some know-how on this subject?

While I'm not an expert, I've come at the problem from the other side. The hormones work on your brain. Your brain wiring is literally changing. T is strong as all get out, so I imagine it would have changed pretty quick. I know the physical changes happen faster for FtMs. Less sure about the mental ones. Anyway, I noticed that my orgasms were getting better (though they take longer to achieve) somewhere around six months. While guy orgasms can be intense, they're pretty much BOOM and done. On the plus side (for you anyway) it's pretty easy to reach the finish line. Girl orgasms... well, I need a few (15-20) minutes to catch my breath afterwards but it takes longer to get there and there's a definite afterglow to bask in. Guys don't really bask. They get up and go work on the truck.

You're right, it is a lot easier uh.. to reach the finish line as you say 😅 I'd forgotten how frustratingly difficult it used to be to be honest, and I guess being able to get there so easily and so quickly now certainly doesn't help in giving it time to build up intensity so maybe that's part of why they're less intense for me than they used to be? And yeah, "BOOM and done" is an accurate way to describe it lol it doesn't take very long to recover now

      @Jandi writing is a creative art that is generally done alone. May I suggest warming up with music you love or look up websites that publish Good news stories and turn off the world outside and enjoy your inside. Not every song I write is good but just the practice is enjoyable. Remember all great writers will say...if you want to be a writer then you have to write...that is how you get better. Perhaps check in on Coursera it is free and wonderful courses to help more knowledge to your ideas. My favorite is Pat Pattison at Berklee he as a great course on poetry and lyric?writing. Although I have written for over 45 years he gave me some concepts I had not heard before and I have added them to my writing tool kit.

      Modesty... Seems to be a common trait here and I love all of you for it.

      My parents think I've been brainwashed into thinking I'm transgender and they think Asperger's caused me to be brainwashed. I haven't said anything to them about how it's more common for people on the autistic spectrum to be transgender because they'll probably interpret that as evidence that those on the autistic spectrum are easily brainwashed. Also, I've noticed a lot of LGB (in addition to trans) people on autism related forums, especially a lot of lesbians.

      I like to write.  Sometimes stories, sometimes poems. Lately being stuck at home by myself I've been kinda depressed, and it's surprisingly hard to get motivated.  That seems weird considering I have lots of time on my hands.  But I've been trying to do better with mixed results.

      I have also heard that Transfolks have a higher percentage of being dyslexic.   Dyslexia is more than simply mixing up "b" & "d".   (which I only found out lately, and explains a lot about myself).  It can also involve remembering numbers, (like phone numbers - I've had to write mine down at times so I wouldn't forget it) or spelling can be a big problem - just to name a couple.   Just thought I'd mention it.

      Scuba and specifically underwater photography.  If I could live underwater I would. My long term plan is to get to the point where I can spend 6 months a year in Bonaire do it.

      oh and I can even talk nonsense about video games thus combining the two together.
    • MaryMary
      Hi, I'm an expert at both talking nonsense and video games. I can do both of these for an infinite amount of time so my guess is that you are at the right place. Welcome, it's a pleasure meeting you virutally
    • ThatDarnDodo
      Productivity? Never heard of her. 
    • Carolyn Marie
      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sasha.  I won't be much fun to talk video games with, but I can manage some General Nonsense.  😆  Please look around and post where you like, and if you have questions, we're good for that, too.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you, Shay.  We have a wonderful team here, and actually, I feel it's more akin to a family.  But its all the members, past and present, who make this place truly special.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      @Robin  You've mentioned that previously.  Thanks for the photo, so cool.  I understand Geddy Lee is a big collector of Negro League Baseball memorabilia.  Neil Young is into train sets. I remember when he joined a group to buy Lionel when they were in trouble years ago.
