anybody have any experience in oral consumption of topical minoxidil apart from that guy on reddit? i've been on minoxidil for years with OK results. the topical application (even though i do it once a day) is a bit too much work but if i stop i will lose the hair im pretty sure.
How soon after restarting prog cycle can I get a blood test to check my prog/DHT levels? What sort of levels for Prog am I looking for? What DHT level would be too high to need duta?
>>25788095How do you know you should increasing dosage of estrogen without doing blood test?
>>25788442You don't. Levels and time is the only way to know.
>>25788442you have to contact your ETHERIC FEMALE SPIRIT and have them assess your RE-MODULATED VIBRATORY ENERGY. It should be very simply for any real tranner.
>>25788095If you are rich just keep uping your dosage forever you'll just piss out the extra no problems
>>25788554Hormones aren't vitamins, that's not how that works.
>>25788575Prove it. Fuck I don't have that meme of the guy pissing on the floor super hard.
>>25788985Nah it's funnier to let people listen to you and die.
I consume EVERY hormone in a 10 mile radius. My levels are in the TENS OF THOUSANDS. I am THE MOST BEAUTIFUL and COMPLETELY IMMORTAL.
>>25788095is there a downside to just doing 8mg sublingual with 2 4mg pills forever? I pass out when i get a shot and i there is no way i could ever do it to myself. Also i can get 4mg for free with my endo. Will get i worse results than injections or patches?
>>25789248Patches are worse than pills. Injections v Pills is arguable and primarily for convenience, though there is theoretical benefit to the way levels cyclee on shots compared to pills that you can't emulate with pills.
>>25789462i mean the pills dont bother me as much as the stress of injections would. It would just be nice to know how much of a difference in more consistent levels it makes. if its just mood and stuff or fat distribution, i dont want to permanently fuck up my breast growth by staying on pills too long.
is there anyone who only got hair growth after adding fina/duta ontop of their hrt?
>>25788182I've seen people who take oral and grow thicc hair all over their face >>25788182
does anyone from AU recommend a particular diy progesterone source?
>>25789790Go to bed ask in the afternoon :(
Can I switch from 2mg oral to 4mg sublingual or is that a bad idea?
is it true that you need to take testosterone if you end up destransitioning down the line or does T production resume like normal? heard some anons talk about this and it scares me
>>25790392Not unless you get an orchie that detrans trip making bordeline off topic threads is just an idiot who constantly talks about how lucky he is to be low t since birth (no facial hair, etc) and yet still talks about wanting to inject t but doesn't wanna go to the gym or actually get more masculine in any other way.
>>25790377I did this and it worked out fine, take one 2mg every 12 hours though
>>25790544ahh, so that means it's no problem if i do end up detransing 6 months down the line? not planning on it obviously but im weighing my options atm
>>25790589Not at all, though your boobs would be fairly sizeable by then.
>>25790620ahh, thank you anon!
>>25791787yeah, i have boobs and i've considered detransing. it's actually a major issue since I don't pass; i'm basically a man with boobs, which is not at all helpful to me
>>25788095I’ve only been on 2mg E and bica for 2 months, but my body hair growth has slowed a ton and it comes in thinner already. Is there a chance that keeps slowing down? It’s frankly already better than I ever thought it would be because I had a lot of it at one pointAlso not entirely sure, but how will I know when I have breast buds? I had what I think was pseudo-gyno before HRT, but my nipples often look at lot larger now, and the shape of my chest has changed a little? Lots of soreness at points. But whenever people describe a breast bid as being beneath the nipple, I feel hard lumps but they’re farther back and I think I’ve always had them because I thought what I was feeling was just fatSorry for the potentially really dumb questions
>>25793748for me it wasnt really an obvious thing to feel, kinda like fat but a little bit harder at the start? just feels like fat now
anybody know if i can start taking ralox a couple months in or if i need to start with ralox from the start?
>>25794504its already not very effective so personally I'd use from the start but budding usually doesnt start until 2 months so technically it shouldnt hurt?
>>25794570I am just over a month in and am already budding. I don't really mind so far and would like small booba but I would hate big ones, maybe I'll look into ralox if it starts to get a little bit out of control
So if I’m on bica and my t is (I think) not doing much anymore, but my e levels are just above cis male values, how concerned should I be about more masculinization rn? Also on fin
>>25789462Wait Im on patches by prescription. Why are they bad?? I heard they were better than pills as they are transdermal.
>>25795541Really inconvenient and get lower/worse levels. All transdermal means is you take it through your skin idk why you'd think that was better?
how long does it take to feel the effects of injections? I'm like 90% sure im injecting wrong somehow even though it should be no brainer, because i dont feel anything. I'm using Lena's stuff for DIY, using a 27g .5 inch insulin needle. i load it up just fine, and it squirts out fine too, but when i actually inject it, i dont feel anything. I did three .2 ml intramuscularly within 3 days while the recommended dosage is .2 ml every 5 days. still didn't feel anything. I rubbed some on my balls too, because testicle epidermis is thin and absorbs easily, and I actually felt more of an effect than when i injected. im like 90% sure something is wrong with the way im injecting because i know injectable hormones hit the bloodstream fast, and i used to do testosterone and DHT gel from when i was repper, and I felt its effects within 30 min to 1 hr easily, so I know how fast hormones can work. Is the needle I'm using too shallow?
Best time for injections to boobmax? Was ramping up estrogen for the past 5 months from 2mg to 6mg (sublingual). I don't have buds anymore, they're like full breast tissue but just about an A cup, easy to hide etc. Haven't felt much pain in that area for a while.
You guys crack the transitioning code yet or is the same old same old
i keep hearing genetics play a factor into HRT's effects, especially with boobs. Should i be looking at any specific family members to compare? My mom and her mom are both fairly busty but my dad's mom was a board
>>25789797its now after noondoes anyone from AU recommend a particular diy progesterone source?
>>25796230TO me it doesnt seem any less convenient than patches and for some reason I was told it gives better levels than pills
>>25796596I was on injections for like 4 months and got paranoid that they were doing shitgoing back to square one with 50mg bica and 2mg buccal. Wondering when I should increse to 4mg or maybe even 3mg?
>>25796596. 2 of Lena's vials? That's even more than she recommend which Is already an absurdly high dose. Why would you do that?
>>25788424>>25797797ty for bump stranger. also bumping
>>25798394genetics play a part, but generally the genes will just affect things like their natural hormone production and receptor viability, which your altering with hormone meds and are different cause of not being cis respectively. you also have to consider the development of family members too. in my family every woman both sides was busty but one grandma due to malnourishment and smoking. ymmv but generally regulated hrt if you got to avoid T would give better results.
i’m taking EEn after a month and some of cypro and E and i’m so inconsistent with my dosages bc im so paranoid and judging it on dysphoria or feari’ve done 4.4mg, then 7mg, then 4mg, and today i don’t know what to do. i can stick to 4 and it would be better to be consistent but i’m scared it’s not enough and it seems so small but apparently people do fine on it but i just don’t know and i’m considering 5mgplease pitch your opinion on my unnecessarily complicated situation and what i should do
>>25788095How do I make sure bica’s actually working? My T jumped up to >1000 on it and I know it’s supposed to increase but I’m paranoid. I am feminizing, which is a good sign, and my libido decreased but some days it comes back, and I’m not sure why
>>258014467mg every 7 days
>>25802010Girl's get horny too dummy.
Would anyone here be open to dste a straight girl with a feminization fetish?
>>25802798where r u
Why do people hate Willpower's method? It seems decent enough at first glance
>>25804675I don't think anyone really hates his methods. He's trying things out, sometimes percieved a bit arrogant (it's sperg bluntness, normaloids can't stand it), but he's doing things other doctors aren't and bless him for that. That said the reason a lot of pseudo-intellectuals people dislike it is purely just because nothing is proven (yet, or disproven yet) and people rightfully don't like that there's some sort of cult following for him. What he's doing isn't really a "the powers method" though. He has some theories about E1, E1S, and SHBG, most which have by now anecdotally proven itself to be mostly useless in practice. He mostly just aims to supress T and keep E at a decent level after a while like most doctors, with some things like being open to using bicalutamide, open to giving E implants, and open to giving progesterone, and being very diligent in helping those with hairloss and poor feminization find hidden androgens halting their process. He's a good doctor for trannies. He also says there's no power's method because he alters his regimen based on the patients desires and blood tests like any other decent doctor.>>25802798>All mass shooters are glowiesI was friends with one, they're not glowies, just mental illness and brainwashed online.>>25802010It's normal for T to rise 1.5-2x on Bica so the levels aren't alarming on their own. If you are feminizing and have a lower libido then that's fine. There are other tells like sperm color, body hair growth, body odor. If you need to reduce your T you can slightly increase your E.
>>25801446>and i’m so inconsistent with my dosages bc im so paranoid and judging it on dysphoria or fearThat's not good. You should accept your levels not being 100% perfect for a month and then get blood tests to confirm whether you need to change anything. It's not like your transition will be ruined if your levels are slightly wrong for a month. Stick to a regimen and get blood tested. If you can't get blood tested, then pick a decent dose and stick with it.>>25798394Even with busty parents you shouldn't expect a lot.>>25798707At 4 months in I'd sit on 4mg for many months.>>25798057Depends how long ago since you've been here. It's mostly the same for the past couple years though.>>25796596Probably get a blood test. Your dose of 8mg/5d is really high by the way.>>25789790I've heard good about IHP for Australia, free reship/refund etc.
>>25796596>using a 27g .5 inch insulin needle.you're obviously doing sc with such a needlebecause it sounds like you take valerte so i can't tell exactly but it usually takes 12 days to notice effects from sc
>>25797073best time is as soon as possible for part of the dose and oral for the rest
>>25804946>I've heard good about IHP for Australia, free reship/refund etc.they're site says that if I don't have a prescription customs might block my package, do I risk it?
>>25805150Either risk it or get a doctor to prescribe you.
For medicheck bloodtests, do I just order a women's test or both men and women's? Also how long would I need to go off cypro for an accurate indicator as to my t levels even be given
>>25805657*For mono therapy
.4ml every 2 weeks of 10mg/ml delestrogen is a low dose right? why is that what my doctor has me starting on when switching to injections? should i ask to bump it up before i get my bloodwork done in about a month or should i wait and see?
Hypothetically speaking let’s say I’m on monotherapy.Now let’s say I I’m 20 days over injecting.Is it possible that it spiked my t levels to the point of growing body hair and causing perma changes? Or if I inject will I be good?
Can someone explain "hondosing"?I see it posted all the time and I've been too afraid to ask.Is 8mg of E orally a hondose? Asking for a friend.
>>25805671>>25805657Why would you go off of Cypro for accurate T levels? Also get the woman's one unless you take Bica, then get the sports one as it includes liver function tests as well as T and E.
>>25805806To check if monotherapy is working as intended? Cypro just seems like a bad idea long term and it's been three years
I'm considering starting progesterone because I'm struggling a bit less with money ATM.Is it even worth starting after being on estrogen for years?And if so what dose is good?
>>25805766I can't say for sure cuz not smart, but 20 days is kinda not much so most likely ur fine>>25805775>hondosingHondose is a dose that is too low(gives you levels of E that are too low for good feminization(in the speaker's opinion))>Is 8mg of E orally a hondose?Nopic from here: https://transfemscience.org/articles/transfem-intro/
>>25806703yea but watch out for DHT backdoor balding, but uncommon and most doctors dont know about. Most start on 100mg and move to 200 after a month iirc
>>25806838What the frick is dht backdoor balding lmfao?Is prog rly worth it if there's some weird risk there?
is it ok to crush sublingual
Should I take small amount of hormones if I just want my voice higher? Voice training isn't working and I don't wanna be full trans.
>>25807081Hrt doesn't affect the voice at all for amabs
>>25807081voice is a one way street. surgery and voice training are your only options
>>25807081T makes your voice lowerE does nothing (some people claim their voices got softer on E, but it's not a universal thing and probably just psychological)
Are there any known heart issues to look out for with mtf hrt? Shit runs in my family, and its probably not worth pursuing if I'm going to have my heart explode at 30 just to have tiny tits
>>25808240not really. some blood issues but heart is a okay
>>25808240Estrogen generally makes you live longer and less likely to get heart failure, so that's a good thing for you.>>25807049Yes.>>25806874Not worth it imo, but I'm paranoid and I hated progesterone. Gave me no benefits either.>>25805749That's 4mg EV every 14 days which is insanely low even with an AA. The half life is 5 days and most of your E will be gone within 10 days. If you were planning to do monotherapy you'd normally have 4-5mg every 5 days minimum. If you're planning to still take an AA I would take 4mg a week with the AA as minimum.>>25805766It's not that big of a deal. At least in my experience it usually takes 2-3 weeks on monotherapy to start noticing T going up.
>>25808560No no no, I’ve been on e for almost a year, and haven’t injected in 20 days
>>25808793That doesn't change what I said?Just take your injection and relax. You're not instantly permanently disfigured.
>>25808465Is that just the blood clotting I heard about? I'm at risk for hypertension basically all the time, no matter how healthy my diet is.
>>25809425They're definitely talking about clotting. It can be easily avoided and risk free by being smart about your regimen, but generally while you're young if you're mostly healthy there's no harm in taking the "riskier" ways temporarily if just for a couple years.https://transfemscience.org/articles/estrogens-blood-clots/#risks-with-different-hormonal-exposures
>>25805766no that would only happen if you were to forget bicat. knower
>>25802273would 10mg every 7 days be dangerous?
/fraud/ster heredo you guys do anything to force/promote bone remodeling to expand your hips?
>>25811068I've had hip growth over the years, bone that is. I'm very skinny. It was most noticeable the first year when it was painful to walk for a period. It's very clear that I have had growth, I have no doubts about that. I'm going to try Relaxin soon though, will be interesting to see if that does anything for further growth.>>25809822No, but it's likely a lot more EEn than you need. I did 10mg every 7 days for a period and it gave me 600+pg/ml E2. Waste of money. 7mg every 7 days or 10mg every 10 days would be a better dose, then get blood testing to see if you can reduce it further.
Can someone tell me if it would be better to stay on 50mcg patches and go to 75mcg in a month or go to 3mg oral estradiol but i could just do sublingual and not tell dr.
>>25811172>I'm going to try Relaxin soon thoughcooldo any exercises to promote it?
>>25811204I'd go with oral for now. I'm assuming you have an AA to suppress T?
>>25811324Yes im on lucrin. I might actually need to stay on patches for 3 months since my gp doesnt kbow about hrt but i could switch to sublingual after
>>25811172relaxing can help your hips grow? I'm never stressing again.
>>25812120Relaxin-2, a hormone linked to pregnancy induced hip growth, not Relaxing.https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/sms.12149>>25811276Haven't thought that far.
>>25788095does oral prog actually work for breast growth?just got prescribed 100mg a day, when should i see changes, if any?
>>25812190but relaxin mostly has to do with boosting elasticity and malleability of pretty much everything bones includedpretty sure the hip growth only happens because of the sheer and insane force of delivering, right?you'd need some force driving the expansion
>>25812457Widening of the hips naturally occurs towards the end of pregnancy in preparation for delivery, and during delivery.Wider ribs as well apparently. Might look into corsets for the duration to probably prevent this.
>>25812515do you think other hormones + the relaxin caused it? i mean, i dont think relaxin alone does it
>>25812529I'm not saying it will work, but I'm probably going to try it.Bone growth:https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6545299/Bone remodelling:https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4282454/
Will pic rel get me hondosed?
>>25812643That depends how much you take and whether you take an AA with whatever E dose you take.
>>25812649Someone said i should take 50 bica and 2mg of this for the first three months?
>>25812674Yeah that's fine.
I am fat (obese, my ideal weight is 150lbs from where I'm at) and 27.25 years old. I am light skinned hispanic and only 5'6''. Should I even start? Is losing weight more important first for health reasons? Or can I begin to diet/exercise while on E?
>>25812611No, I'm aware and yes it's true relaxin helps bone remodeling and growth. Rolfe's law is realBut where will the driving force come from? Relaxin isn't selective, and most certainly doesn't signal only for the hips, like you stated, so where will you get the hip expansion from?
>>25812725Wouldnt it be really slow tho?
>>25812817Bicalutamide blocks and increases T and helps convert T to E. You'll get estradiol from both aromatization and from the pills. Will it be slow early on? Sure probably, but it's not a race. Transition takes years. When years have passed you'll probably wish you were more patient early on, 3 months isn't a lot. Up it to 4 after that. Or start on 4, I can't control you.>>25812766There's no need to lose weight before hrt. You can lose weight while transitioning.>>25812775What's rolfe's law?
>>25812775>so where will you get the hip expansion from?Look up hip expansion yoga on yt it's deff a thingAlso does anyone know where to get this mythical relaxin?
>>25812861just that constant force, presumably by hypertrophied muscles, onto bone will force it to adapt to it, likely by increasing bone density and remodelingalthough the process is very slow typically
>>25812899idk if source talk regarding peptides is banned, because peptides are legal, but any expansive peptide source likely has it/r/peptides is a good place to lookand fuck it if im not banned, but geopeptides has relaxin-2im not well educated on relaxin but I know there's specific versions and you do not want to fuck around with the wrong one so godspeed whoever tries
>>25812861>There's no need to lose weight before hrt. You can lose weight while transitioningThank you for the reassurance I was just scared of maybe getting blood clots or heart issues from doing it all at the same time. Is it true that weight cycling helps keep some of the female fat distribution? Maybe I'll get better results by doing it this way. Do you have any knowledge on this? Thank you! :)
>>25812861Ok so take 50 bica and 2 primogyn during the first three months, then get blood test and then change it to a better dose based on my levels right?
i just know theres something wrong with my levels i havent gotten my levels tested because i cant afford it but i just feel like my levels are bad im 8mo hrt and my breast growth has been stalled since my 4th month my nipples have lost sensitivity and dont feel like anything anymore they dont hurt anymore theyre not tender anymore playing with them feels like nothing and i constantly feel like shit everyday i have no energy and i have zero sex drive all my fat goes to my stomach and my skin isnt very soft or smooth. im taking 6mg EV every 5 days. i have no idea what to do. maybe ill try spiffy's estradiol cypionate or something maybe Lilian gave me a shit vial idk fuck idk what to do
is 216pg/ml e and 11ng/dl t good for 1.5 years hrt? am I hondosed?
Hey, i was wondering where i could get needles from for e, im running out and amazon wont let me buy more
I just got blood test results for the first time todayI am taking 10mg EEn every 7 days, 5 months hrtE2 2269 pmol/L (618 pg/L)T 0.9 nmol/L (26 ng/L)I'm a dummy so please tell me what i should do
>>25815044good>am I hondosed?no
What levels of progesterone should I be looking for being at?
>wash skin with alcohol prep pad >wait for it to dry>inject >skin still stings like a bee when the needle goes in What do I do Is there any alternative besides sucking it up or just not sterilizing?
>>25816509Pain only exists in the mind. Believe there is none and it will be gone.
So, do I take cypro and 1mg of e in the morning, 1 mg at night or before bed? Or is it cypro and 2mg in the morning? How does this work? And also, does it have to be at the exact same time every day? My sleeping is kinda erratic.
>E pre HRT 29pg/ml>After 2mg oral for 2 months c, measured at trough: 33pg/mlwhy did my E barrelsy go up at all? My T is at 20ng/dl from AA drug.
>>25817194>E2/day (1 mg in the morning + 1 mg at night)>cypro1/day (you can take it with E, be consistent (take every time in the morning / every time at night))>How does this work?Half-life of oral E is 13-20hrs and half-life of cypro is 1.6–4.3 days (according to wiki) so that's why>does it have to be at the exact same time every day?You'll see results even if you won't do this, but yeah you should try to take your hrt at the same time every day.
hey I hope this isn't like. off-topic or anything.I was just wondering if anyone knew when 5pi ffy is typically available to talk? haven't tried dealing with them before.
>>25817480Spiffy?They should be on.
>>25817523oh, that's weird. sent the request ages ago.
>>25817529Their times can be a bit random sometimes.
>>25817523my friend also sent a friend request w/ no responce.would it be super cringe of me to ask you to ask spiffy to check their requests?I'll be a good customer for sure>>25817529 -> this is me
>>25815691I think you should reduce your dose a bit.>>25817208Most important part is suppressing T. Oral half life isn't that long which is why your E seems low. You can increase to 4mg if you want.
>>25818254>Oral half life isn't that longBut still, shouldn’t it be - little bit higher at steady state?Gonna increase dosage and split it bidaily.
My prolactin was 260pg/ml while E at 260pg/ml so I stopped taking cypro in hope it’ll get lower, but now I’m so scared the T will rise I’m pondering if I should take cypro again. What do you think?
>>25818923why not combat the prolactin selectively?vitamin e or b6?
>>25818951How does that work? I have a call with the endo in two days
>>25818987https://www.reddit.com/r/steroids/wiki/sides/list#wiki_lactation_.28galactorrhea.29also there's caberbut that's the nuclear fuck all option
What should i change to my plan?Take 50 Bica, 2 primogyn (pic rel) during three months and then make blood tests
>>25819021I’m not lactating or have any side effects, I feel good
>>25819715I thought you wanted to lower your prolactinthat's how you do it
>>25819148That seems like a good starting plan. I did 2mg estradiol for 3 months before my upping to 4mg. Your way may be a faster start, but still very reasonable.
>>25819819What were your e levels after those 3 months?
>>25819779Oh okay thank you
Anybody from the UK (specifically) bought OtokonokoPharm's dick gel in the past month or so? Last mention of it I heard was a UK anon here saying theirs had been seized by customs so I held off on ordering but when I emailed Lillian more recently she said nobody had reported a package seized.
got my first blood test after 4 months of bica+estradiol (6mg in 3 pills). i got male levels of estradiol (39.1pg/mL), should i panic now? its been suggested to me to spread out the pills throughout the day instead of taking them all in the morning, any other tip?
>>25820381>should i panic?You should not panic.>i got male levels of estradiolWhat matters is that your T (I hope) was somewhere in fem range, so you still should have feminized a bit.>spread out the pills throughout the day instead of taking them all in the morningDefinitely. If you are taking them orally 2 times/day will be good enough, if sublingually/buccally - spread out as much as you want/can, but it should be >2 / day.>any other tipBlood tests should be done right before your next E administration, but you probably already know this
I just got my first blood test after 3 months of hrt (4mg estradiol oral / 100 mg spiro), and I thought I was being hondosed but apparently my levels are good (test @ 26* and estradiol @ 105* H). She’s sticking me on 4 mg for the next 3 months. Should I start looking for extra estradiol, or am I good good?
Is weight cycling something i should do multiple times or just shed and regain once over? How much does it really help with hrt's fat redistribution? And if i should do it at all, how long into my hrt process should i wait before I start the process?transfem btw
>>25820543im using bica for aa so my t levels are also in a male range, but the t is not active if i understood that correctly. idk, i still got noticeable fat redistribution in my body and my tits are starting to grow, im just worried i could be doing much better>Blood tests should be done right before your next E administration, but you probably already know thisMmm i did the test first thing in the morning before taking my pills, so i guess that's fine
>>25820607>am I good You 100% good.>>25820618multiple times, can't answer anything else cuz I don't know :c>>25820662>t is not activesorry I forgot that bica does that, never been on bica myself>im just worried i could be doing much betterNo point in thinking about this, you can't change the past after all. Your feminization should speed up now, so I think you have something to look forward to
Is microdosing (e.g. 2mg oral E forever) riskier than full girlmode? What's the best form of taking E if I don't want full feminisation?
>>25820791>Your feminization should speed up now, so I think you have something to look forward toBecause of spreading the pills? Hope you're right desu. Thank you for answering.
>>25820984>Because of spreading the pills?Yess your levels will be higher in your next blood tests I'm 100% sure.This has to do with the half life of (oral) estradiol
>>25820106Assuming all facts are correct that simply just meansA) They're not usually seized, which makes sense because UK customs are known to do fuck allB) The one person who had it seized never mentioned it.Alternatively C) She is pretending like it didn't happen, but I doubt that's the case, most people don't bother contacting suppliers and go straight to social media for literally everything.>>25820910"Microdosing" as you know it doesn't exist. It's not risky, it just won't do anything. Testosterone will overpower your estrogen. What do you put into "full feminisation"? You can't pick and choose what changes you want and if you try to minimize too much you'll end up getting nothing at all.
>>25788095Where can I order t gel that doesn't require Bitcoin
>>25821258EUAibolitStayHealthyPharmaOnlineFarmacy-HousesPilloidZeemoreUncleDragonOrdnMaybe I missed a couple, but these all take bank transfer, western union, or wise.Just look at all the sites on hrt.cafe and search for t or androgel, or start using Bitcoin as well like a financially free chad and no longer worry about the payment methods being available or not.
does anyone know a good source / sources for luer-lock syringes and tips? I've been using easy-touch insulin syringes for like a year now and im finaly running out of the shitty things. I'm in the US and no, I dont think I can nor would I want to get them from a local pharmacy
>>25819891Only slightly elevated above male range, but my spiro worked and my T went from 900 ug/DL to 100. I had visible breast growth in that time as well. I’m on 4mg estradiol a day for another month, and then I switch to injections.
I'm moving from Cypro to Decapeptyl, a GnRH agonist. I vaguely remember reading something about how you should keep taking your old blockers for a while because agonists boost testosterone for a while. Is that true? Is there any place where I can read about this in more detail? Should I keep taking Cypro for a bit?
>>25821628>Only slightly elevated above male range>I had visible breast growth in that time as wellok, thats the same with me. I kinda fear my barely elevated E levels (at trough) are something to worry about.
Can HRT cause sudden mood swings if your on pills and not consistent enoughI'm guessing with 90% certainty the answer is yes, in which case I move on to the more important worry:CAN FUCKING UP HRT MAKE ME PERMANENTLY BIPOLAT? WHY ARE THERE SO MANY BPD TRANNERS? I DIDNT HAVE MOOD SWINGS BEFOREIM A RETARDED DIYER WITH N O MONEY WHY DID I DO THIS? I JUST WANTRD TO KNOW SHORT TERM IF IT WOULD DO SOMETHING AND HAVE TIME TO MAKE A DECISION BEFORE THE THREE MONTH MARKI didnt even get labs cuz I was overwhelmed and now Ill be out in like 2 or three days...Im so dumb. Im so dumb.
>>25822160>CAN FUCKING UP HRT MAKE ME PERMANENTLY BIPOLAT?Probably not. You're on a very low dose atm anyhow, right? 2 mg/day oral? So that's unlikely to do something like that.
what should I take in order to grow my atom-sized cherry tits into medium/big cone tits?currently on 4mg cypro + 0.18ml lena's juice (/5 days), should I take progesterone? if yes, then how much?I just want to have big conetits, thats all
>>25821971GnRH agonists indeed elevate T production for a short period of time (like a few days/week or so). I don't know if this will happen if changing from cypro, and T is already suppressed, because I'm completely clueless about it since I'm on decapeptyl (triptoreline) myself from the start. Did not really feel the T flare.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gonadotropin-releasing_hormone_agonist#Pharmacology>Agonists do not quickly dissociate from the GnRH receptor. As a result, initially there is an increase in FSH and LH secretion (so-called "flare effect"). Levels of LH may increase by up to 10-fold, while levels of testosterone generally increase to 140 to 200% of baseline values. However, after continuous administration, a profound hypogonadal effect (i.e. decrease in FSH and LH) is achieved through receptor downregulation by internalization of receptors. Generally this induced and reversible hypogonadism is the therapeutic goal. During the flare, peak levels of testosterone occur after 2 to 4 days, baseline testosterone levels are returned to by 7 to 8 days, and castrate levels of testosterone are achieved by 2 to 4 weeks.>Various medications can be used to prevent the testosterone flare and/or its effects at the initiation of GnRH agonist therapy. These include antigonadotropins such as progestogens like cyproterone acetateDifferent GnRH agonists (different drugs) behave a little bit differently in direct comparison in terms of duration till chemical castration, achieved T levels etc.
>>25822160T tends to surpress your emotions, its part of why men are usualy less emotional than women. You adjust to it after a little bit, you're just currently still used to your emotions being kinda deadend and are now realising you're a much more emotional person than you thought. My first 3 months were realy rough and I was kinda all over the place for my first year, but I eventualy got my shit together and I'm a lot more stable. Make sure to have a healthy lifestyle and hobbys outside of transitioning, it helps you become a better rounded and more mentaly healthy person and keeps you from being a total nutcase tranner
>>25822283well for starters drop the cypro, you're on monotherapy doses so an AA is unneedes and just extra health risk at that point. with cypro you wanna kinda slowly ween off over a couple weeks tho. you can try adding in 2mg oral E every day ontop of your injections to try to "jump-start" things but that trick seems to be hit or miss, but its worth a shot. you dont realy wanna take prog until you've gotten the most boob growth you can on E, but if you do decide to take it, 200mg rectal before bed is pretty normal. if you want to more closely simulate cis levels and cycleing (there is limited evidince that this may make prog more effective), you could take 100mg prog every 12 hours for 15 days on 15 days off. how long have you been on E?
>>25822157>>25822536How do you recommend to ween of cypro? I've tried before to do so and get on prog but I keep having this fears of a t rebound/not being suppressed. (can't get bloodtests so)
>>25822400Thank you very much!
>>25822160If HRT makes you BPD you probably just were BPD all along and didnt notice. Women are BPD at much higher rates than men in the first place.
>>25822685just take less and less, if youre on 12.5mg daily then take it every-other day for a lil bit, then every three days, etc, etc, etc. or you can just tank it and stop it all at once, that could be unpleasent and you will likely experience rebound, but thats only temporary. dont worry too hard about the rebounding, but I do reccomend weening off, maybe going from daily to never in ~a month is a good mild timeframe. I tried all sorts of whacky stuff like trying to take bica and cypro at the same time to block rebound and it was a waste of time, money, and made me feel like I was dying, so just dont sweat it too hard. you could temporarily up your E dose to .20ml/5-days to help compensate while you quit cypro possibly, but honestly it probably isnt even needed
>>25822764No i don't think i need to ramp up even more i agree. I already tried to kill my leydig cells by smearing gel on my balls. But interesting about the bica and cypro combi though. I heard a few people doing it but never got back to it, whynwould you say it's a waste of time/what was so unpleasant about it?Tbf I was planning on just not dropping untill i can get an orchi at some point, but weening of slowly may be a better option
the only options available in my country are cypro and spiro. what would be the best option(I've been on spiro on and off for months)
>>25822975pretty much all AAs are bad for your health, especialy liver, and taking both is kinda just asking to feel like shit, I think my E levels were way too absurdly high when I took both which made things even worse. with monotherapy doses of EV (.08ml-.10ml / 5 days) AAs are entirely unneeded because the high E dose is surpressing androgen production anyways. Playing it safe and taking something on the higher end for a monotherapy dose wont hurt you, but long-term AA use very well could
>>25823035cypro, 100%, spiro has much worse common side effects and fails to surpress T in most patients. Take no more than 25mg daily to start, and drop down to only 12.5mg after a couple weeks, theres no need to take more, and make sure to take b12 or vitamins with b12, because cypro tends to lower your b12 which can cause/worsen depression. obviously once you can get off AAs, do so
>>25822536thanks for the advice.>you're on monotherapy doses so an AA is unneedes and just extra health risk at that point.well, yeah I know that actually, I was not taking cypro until some months ago, when I got unlucky and the vial I was using was bad (ie. didnt work), also I will get an orchi soon, so I have been paranoid about T raising after it, so I am taking it as a kind of "failsafe" in case my body decides to raise T right after the surgery.I plan on dropping it off as soon as possible after the surgery> until you've gotten most boob growth you can on Eyeah about that champ... that is fucking rn, I've been on hrt since 17 (was on lectrum injections before that) and my breast growth kinda peaked at 17,6 (so like, almost 2y ago), and dont get me wrong, I'm more than satisfied with results, my hips got wider and my breasts are just so existent enough that my chest can pass as a flat girl's.>closely simulate cis levels and cycleingultracringe, would literally rather rope than follow this gigahon pseudosciencec bullshit>how long have you been on E?again, since 17, im 19 now
I'm 18. Should I drink a lot of milk on HRT? Will that help the changes grow more? Inversely, should I refrain from drinking milk before I get on HRT to make sure I don't masculinize anymore?
>>25823488Milk is just fat sugar water and calories, any other effects it has are memes.
>>25823488>Should I drink a lot of milk on HRT?I don't believe drinking milk has positive or negative impact on hrt results.
>>25823488if you're going for fat distribution.. you'd want to calmax, and exercise those areas with milk hydration. use whole milk for fat. within a few months with normal diet.can gain 10+ lbs of fat np. i drink alot of whole milk. and take alot of e.when i want to lose weight, i just stop drinking milk and eat the same.milk is pretty amazing.can use it to bulk up masc. and also to fem.its just a good drink.. thats all.
>3mg oral dose via 2mg & 1mg pillsshould I split it in 1,5mg bid or 2mg morning and 1mg evening?
>>25823954Splitting is better
all of the pharmacies near me are completely out of estradiol for injections and the earliest they can get it is in august. should I switch back to oral or should I go to the black market? I've already been with out estrogen for a week and I'm starting to get worried.
>>25817523My secretary and I generally take Friday and Saturday off depending on how caught up we are. The best time to catch us is probably 5pm to 10pm Sunday - Thursday (US Central time)That being said, it's really easy for people fall between the cracks sometimes with the order volume we get these days. Ping us again if we don't respond to a message. If you're waiting on us to accept a friend request, it can sometimes take a day or two
How am I supposed to know if my levels are good if I can't take bloodtests? I'm just taking standard doses of e and cypro, but I'm afraid it's gonna wreck my body and brain and kill me or make me clinically depressed or something.
>>25824948Sublingual tablets is fine.>>25825407You can't know levels without blood tests, that's what blood tests are for.
>>25788095Getting blood tests for the first time (privatemdlabs), are these all good? Anything I missed out or should remove? Any assistance is appreciated.
>>25825988you should check prolactin as well. Not an expert but might not need to test estrogens other than estradiol depending on what you're taking either.
>>25825988Unless you're rich or you think a specific hormone like dht or estrogen is fucking things up this is kind of overkill, you don't need all those specific types of hormones you just need to make sure your total t is suppressed. E levels really don't even matter if you're not doing mono and you're at the beginning of your trans, esp if you're starting small then planning to ramp up your dosage over time.You should get a liver panel though to make sure your aa isn't killing you
>>25826226*dht or estrone
>>25823272>>25823272>>25823272someone pls respond, I really want to get conetits
>>25826226For the liver panel, were you referring to this one?
>>25826473Yep that's the one
>>25826370no you dont.
>>25826370basicly from the information you gave, I would say go ahead with 200mg rectal prog, either nightly, or spread out and cycled. there were a few studies where the results made it appear that the cycling trick actualy helped, but the sample size realy wasnt lare enough to say for sure, so it's your call. fwiw, people feel better on stable consistant levels instead of any sort of cycling so just consistantly taking it nightly is probably the easiest way to do it. its quite possible you wont gain much size though, prog usualy helps round things out and can make em a little bigger, but it isnt a 100% magic bullet for bigger boobs.>>25824948just go to diy, plus its always good to have a secret stash of extra estradiol for when shortages hit
>>25826766damn, I just wish to have big conetits, why is life so unfair :,(>200mg rectal progcan I get it in the states using informed consent? I plan to move there in a couple months, so it'd nice to know
>>25826939"Big" cone tits arent a thing. Boobs get round as they develop and grow. If you really want cone shaped underdeveloped tits than just taking E+spiro at normie doctor doses will probably get what you want.
are there any good progress pics?
is 2 months 2 mg oral E3 months 4 mg oral3 months 8 mg oralAnd then switching to a different route a good idea? With bica
>>25827083>spirono thanks, I have love for my body.>"Big" cone tits arent a thingblasphemy!you only say that because you have never seem my friend's>Boobs get round as they develop and growewww, what a tragedy.
>>25788095does anybody know the legal status of selling diy hrt in the uk
>>25826766where do I even get diy hormone?
Wtf which lab do I even into? Holy shit. I have no idea what Im doing.>two almost identical sites>"gender reassignment" what? For surgery??>wildly varying priced>quiz thats supposed to help narrow things down asks if Im male at birth, but doesnt let me elaborate even though one of the sites literally has a panel called gender reassignment>words I dont know that dont look like they match OPWhat the fuck?? And how much am I supposed to pull out of my savings for this, even? This is stressful.Yes Im DIYing for now. No choice.
I just ordered HRT, time to live my dream of becoming a goth twink hon. Wish I did this 10 years ago.
>>25788095I have a mild fantasy about administering someone's T or E shots, but I know I would need to practice first if I ever wanted to do it. Does anyone know how to practice subcutaneous/intramuscular injections without literally jabbing your own thigh?
>>25826939you can probably get prog through some informed consent places, but also know that in the USA female hormones are not controled, and you can easily mail order them from wherever you want. grey-market medication is ofcourse frowned upon by doctors and feds, but it isnt illegal unless its androgens youre ordering... and even then they dont realy care....>>25828250homegirl it's literaly in the sticky.... but yea, hrt.cafe has a good compiled list of trusted pharmacys. I get my injections from otokonoko / lily, just note she sells 40mg/ml which may be stronger than what your doctor perscribed, so check the strength of it before you just go nuts injecting the same ammount you always do
>>25828394its in the sticky? damn I need to get my eyes checked. oh well thanks for the tips!
I just got my exames back and I think I'm being hon dosed. My T is nuked to dust but my estradiol is only 55,8 pg/ml.
>>25828476yep,I mean acording to a lot of healthcare standards, thats "good", but ofc almost all trans healthcare standards were written by creeps to harm trans-fems
C-can my primary care doctor tell from my urine (I take ritalin for ADHD) my hormonal levels? Seperately and probably less importantly since I can literally jjst never even do them, can she tell from my blood tests for having a family history of diabeetus?
>>25828900I dont want to know until she has to...... i might not be on it forever after all
i'm hopefully about to start hrt, but also someone told me i'd need to cut alcohol to start, but i'm currently a little bit of an alcoholic and would rly like to avoid cutting it out unless i have toodo i rly need to cut alcohol?
>>25828900no, unless theyre specificaly checking for hormonal levels, which a regular piss test for perscription amphetamines shouldnt.>>25828929for what its worth... I was drinking quite a bit when I started and I was fine. but AAs are hard on your liver so you should definately try to cut back as much as you can. also estradiol makes you less resistant to alcohol... I found that out the hard way going binge drinking after starting and my T getting propperly surpressed and what was supposed to be "a casual evening and a short booze-cruise home" had me so fucked up and sick that I almost asked my friends to take me to the ER cuz I thought I had alcohol poisoning... but you CAN start hrt while drinking, its just better for you to not. assuming youre gonna mix hrt and binge drinking anyways, make sure to pace yourself more carefuly with your drinks, especialy in the first month, cuz your tollarance may change very unexpectadly....
>>25829243thank you :)i'll keep that in mind
>>25829943no problem! I hope you manage to cut back! I havent quite got my drinking reigned in like I would like, but before I started hrt I was downing a bottle of vodka most nights, and now its just a few beers every night, despite some setbacks. I belive in you anon and best of luck! just keep in mind that getting better with your drinking will also help with your transition, alcohol is pretty hard on your body, so cutting back helps your looks quite a bit!
>>25830164i'm mostly doing vodka, beer and rum, loli consume like, a lot, for my bodyweight, i'm actually drunk rn so taking multiple minutes for editing this postyou're super kind, lol i've been thinking of switching to smoking or thc??
>>25830238weed is definately a healthier option, preferably as edibles since smoke can mess up your voice and make voice training harder. definately avoid nicotine/cigarettes, I used to be a pretty bad amphedamine addict, and honestly that 3 year habbit was easier to break than smoking. i still cave from time to time and I "quit" half a decade ago. i would def try to replace the booze with edibles if you can, I k ow a lot of people cut back/quit alcohol that way, personaly it didnt help me much though ;~;. ive found sticking to beer helps a lot, I actualy dont keep liqour in the house because I know ill cave and drink it straight, so weaker beer is my go-to since its realy hard to drink fast enough to get too fucked up and has helped me slow down a ton
>>25830366i switched to beers too!!!i used to be on vodka, mostly, but i still have it in the housei don't know how much i care about passing at this point, i just want to try est so i don't suii'm drunk rn, do you have any tips for quiting?i don't wanna fck myself over, by drinking too hard after starting
>>25830389idk, there isnt realy a big secret, some people can handle just drinking less, some people need to quit altogether because they cant handle the temptation at all. for me ive found trying to wait as late as I can before I start drinking and going to bed earlier helps, its hard to kill an entire six pack when you only have enough time for two or three beers in the evening before bed. also assumeing stress is what makes you drink, it may be worth it to avoid sources of stress. I dont even follow the news or use social media (ususly includeing 4chan even) anymore,and when I cave and look at stuff like that is usualy what sets off a binge-night for me. honestly on here your best bet is to use the filters to set hrtgen and voicegen to the top, and then use "*" to block literaly everything else. you can try going for dry spells like trying to stay sober for a few days and just sleeping a ton to lower your tollerance, but honestly half the time that just leads to a worse relapse so it isnt for everyone
>>25830501to avoid stress i'd need to drop out of uni, lolso ig i'll keep drinking, i already sleep 15 hours per day, so sleeping more isn't an issuei don't watch the news tho, it annoys me :)i should do that, i'm gonna need hrtgen soon, when i start taking, given my awful lifestylei'll try and stop drinking more, do you have any diet tips?will barely eating fuck up transition?
>>25830738oh yea, you DEFINATELY need to eat, especialy if youre starting out underweight. lots of whole milk and peanut butter is a good way to try to put on the pounds. sorry about the uni thing, im probably not the one to ask since I dropped out of collage due to the stress myself...
>>25830765lol, that's based, idk how i feel about uni and stuffdo i rly need to eat tho? like why?i can gain weight, i just fucking hate it, unless i literally need too
>>25830908hrt cant change your bone structure (not enough to matter at least unless you start at like 12), so 90% of how it feminises you is by distributeing your fat in a way typical for women instead of men. so while you'll get the mental effects, you arent realy gonna get much of anything out of it physical unless you build up fat. a common trick is to weight cycle, like lose 10lb, and then gain 10lb and repeat. the body will prioritise burning away "male" fat and building up "female" fat instead.
>>25830993i'm already underweight already :/so ig that should be easy, thanks to talking to me rnyou've been super helpful, i wish i had ppl like this to help me when i actually start hrti'm sorry i'm kinda drunk rn, and taking so long to respond
>>25831029your welcome! dont worry hrt isnt too complicated and this gen and its stickies can badicly guide you through all of it! I was kinda in your shoes a year and a half ago, drunk late-night chats and all! take care of youself anon, and if you put in the effort, youre gonna make it!
>>25831164i'm super worried i'm gonna fuck everything up cause i'm such a drunk and have such a fucked up lifestyle, plus i have so much stressplus i'm so old already, and i'm so old already i'm literally 19 :(((idk, i ordered the hrt, but i'm legit having a panic attack rn
>>25831185you'll be ok anon! its scary to take that first step, and its all kinda overwhelming, but i promise it'll be ok! just focus day by day on getting just a tiny bit better, and remember not to beat yourself up when you fumble. and dont belive the doomers on here, 19 is still a great age to start and theres a lot of masculinsation that you still havent experience yet at your age
>>25831254i just feel like such a man already, thank you for talking to me rnis there any chance i could still get hips?thats a lot of what i want, i rly want hipsi'm super overwhelmed rn, it's so impossible for me to order hrt, or even talk about this stuff without being drunk
>>25817208Me again, still overthinking my dosage.Would it be better to stay at the lowest E dose that produces changes or aim for „proper“ levels instead?I have two concerns:>ramp up levels too fast and hurt potential better breast development>miss a potential faster overall feminisation by staying lowI currently do experience changes and feel good.
>>25830993afaik it won't prioritise male fat but it will build up more "female fat" when you gain weight. All in all weigh cycling works either way :)
Is it ok to divide 50mg cypro into fourths to get 12.5 mg?
Can i start on 4mg or is it too high? I’ve seen people start on it but Ive also heard starting too high is bad but also there’s no evidence that starting high hasnt any negative effects
>>25832751>>25832866yes you can and 4mg/day E is good
>>25828249Yes, I do.The answer is no.Ironically, however, unless your HRT kills someone (in which case they will delight in slapping a murder charge on you) you’ll likely receive a lesser sentence than drug dealing, since all you’re doing is creating unlicensed and uncontrolled medication and distributing it. And it’ll be very hard for them to find people to testify about how you ruined their lives.
is it normal to have soreness around the area of an subcutaneous EV injection? not sure if i'm doing something wrong
>>25830993Is this something you have to maintain by taking HRT or are the results permanent?
I wanna troon out because it'll be fun, but going through HRT is such a tedious process. Anyone in the UK got any advice on how to start out?
>>25833420literally the OP picture anon
Will I kill myself taking 25mg of cypro every other day and 2mg of e daily without bloodtests?
>>25833444SO MANY WORDS, I don't know where to start. Who do I talk to, which is the most reliable source of getting HRT?
>>25833556kys lazy faggot
>>25833614I'm not FUCKING LAZY. I read the whole thing, it's just a lot to take in. I want a personal conversation about the topic.
>>25833556>SO MANY WORDSWell you will have to read a lot if you don't want to go by the official "my endo will do all the thinking for me" route + pray for the endo to be good at trans care.https://transfemscience.org/ will be useful to you.r/TransDIY might be useful, it is for me when I have questions, even though sometimes people there can give incorrect advice about hrt so keep that in mind.
I'm taking 5mg EV every 5 days and my E2 came back as 163pg/ml.Is this level alright?Not doing mono btw
alright now that the dust has settled - should I just apply estro gel to my balls?I'm on a pathetic 50pg/ml on four pumps of estrogen gel after 1 and a half years, can't take pills bc my liver almost died when I tried them and injections don't exist in my countryso ig my last chance is to apply gel to scrotum? does that actually help? what are the dangers? how long do I need to let it dry?
>>25828252>>25835626Nvm Im being dumb probably.
on my second week of DIY, today I noticed my hands are pale white, I have a dull pain sometimes in my forearm and when I hang my arms down by my side my veins are fucking huge and my hands get super red.How worried should I be?
>>25788095Are there any particular risks or problems with starting hrt while losing weight? I ended up putting off starting last year to lose a tonne of weight, and while im near my weight goal (still got 15kg or so to lose), im tired of waiting.
>>25836017What do you take and how do you take it?
otokonokopharma Isn’t working. What do I do for penis t gel?
>>25834129Since nobody is saying anything I guess it's an okay result?
>>258382261mg sublingual progynova morning and evening, and 12.5mg cypro daily
>>25833664DIY, the “official” route may as well not exist, and it’s a 50/50 chance your GP will actually just stonewall you even before that. Private gatekeeps too, so DIY then move to private after 6months to a year of you feel the need/want an easier time getting HRT
>>25832958given that at any given time the uk postal system has actual controlled drugs going round it without trouble, what are the chances i will be caught and prosectuted if i did this do you think
>>25841248depends on whether you're too retarded to use stamps
>>25838508theyre not? i was just about to order from there :(
What is the recommenced starting dose for estradiol cypionate combined with an AA? I see 2mg, is that 0.002mL? I don't see syringes that go down that far. I'm sorry I'm retarded :(
>>25838508>>25841800They work, their site just offline for a couple hours which it does from time to time.
>>25841810> I see 2mg, is that 0.002mLthat depends on the strength of the specific vial you're using.
>>257880956 months in, the only change I had was significant breast growth (unwanted) and apparently pale skin (tho it still looks bad even if I take care of it). Levels are fine aside from dht maybe (15.5 ng/dl). What do?
I'm going to start HRT soon in US.I'm in a forever-red state and can't get any teledoc hrt because of weird laws. Is PP really going to hondose the shit out of me? Is it worth trying to find a proper endo or is PP gonna be good enough? Is there a way to go in there and get the "best" setup for beginning mtf HRT? Would appreciate advice or what specifically I should ask for.
>Go to Walmart>Walgreens>CVS>None of them have syringesWhy the fuck is this so hard?
>>25844237Dont they have like weird charity things to keep heroin addicts and people otherwise dependent on meds from using unclean needles?Im on subling so IDK but maybe look into that? I dunno how blue your state is.
Poorfag here, what would happen if I just started on injection monotherapy instead of doing sublingual and AA until Tanner 3? I'm assuming it would just mean smaller boobs? Would adding progesterone in to my routine later on fix that? Pills are like 75$ a month whereas injections are like 75$ a year for me
how can I increase stroma in the breast?
>>25842236Anyone? Am I doomed to look exact same or worse no matter what hormones I take?
if i accidentally have too high levels for 2 months and then fix my levels will my boobie grow again or did i stunt them by having absurdly high e2
>>25842236>6 months in>Am I doomed to look exact same or worse no matter what hormones I take?Why would you be, If your levels, which you didn't even say and you should have, are fine, then feminization should be happening no matter what. 6 months isn't much.>>25847804>too high levelsyou should have said your levels / dosage, but whatever they were you're most likely fine. My first 2 months I had too high levels for 2 months too, it didn't stunt my breast growth.
>>25847969idk my levels yet im having them checked this week i just wanted to know if its possible i stunted them. i was on 4mg oral and cypro for 5 months until i switched to 6mg ev every 5 days, ive been on this dose for around 2 months now and my boobies are acting weird and i just feel bad idk. im this anon >>25814533
>>25847969378 pg/ml e2 and 16.5 ng/dl test at thorough last time I've checked (around month to two ago). I'm still on the same dose, but I plan on adding duta and bica to deal with dht as I'm still losing hair at pretty rapid rate
>>25788575fuck even if you eat too much vitamin A, you dieit's fat solubility that matters here and estrogen is very much fat soluble!
>>25848002>possible i stunted themI'm on 4 mg oral and I was taking it sublingually in my first months of hrt and it didn't stunt anything so I think that's not what happened to you.I did try to check you levels with a simulator and if those are the levels you have(and I might have made a mistake here somewhere because that's my first time using this simulator), they don't look ideal to me because IN MY OPINION your levels are too high, which can be a problem. I experimented a bit, injecting 2 mg / 3days (for example) would give much more stable and uh lower levels. It is better in my opinion because I personally don't think too high levels are doing any good. I should again mention that I don't know what I'm talking about because I have 0 experience with injections so I may be totally wrong here, so sorry if that's the case, I'm just trying to help.https://transfemscience.org/misc/injectable-e2-simulator/
>trying to order from favskinhousegenuinely wtf is this, that 'pay to' dropdown doesnt even contain anything
Is it possible to recover from being hondosed for almost a year? Throught my first 8 months of transtition I didn't managed to hit female range of E though my T is nuked. I dunno if my lack of progress it caused by this or just shit genetics. Will E above 200 pg/ml kickstart some bigger changes?
I'm about to start HRT so I got a blood test. My T levels are above 900 ng/dL which if I understand correctly is quite high. Does this mean I should start at a higher dose? My initial plan was to start with 2mg e, 12,5 cypro every day and slowly go up from there but I'm worried I'm gonna be wasting months on a dose that's way too low to actually suppress my T.
so, I am gonna ask here because apparently I am too dumb to figure it out myself, what’s a good starting dose for bica and E gel? can I get some general advice? as far as I understand:bica would be 50mg a day the first month and 100mg after (obviously getting blood tests after the first two months)for gel I honestly have no idea, I don’t know how often I would need to reapply nor do I know the dosages… (for that matter, how long does gel last sealed?)note: I chose E gel because patches seem hard to find rn and pills are out of the question because of my incompatibilities with inactive ingredients and they’re worse for my factor v leiden (yes, I know hrt should be a hard no with this but I would die quicker without)
>>25848795am in a similar situation, was hondosed for 1.5 years with levels far below female range but with completely nuked Tis there any hope after such a long time? all I got in 1.5 years was a cup boobs
I'm on 5mg every 7 days of intramascular EV for more than month right now. At trough my E is ~120 pg/ml. Endo says it's fine but I dunno. She kept me at 1,5 mg oral E for 3 months without any AA so I don't really trust her.
Does HRT in your 20s affect IQ or brain mass?
