One Month HRT Update

It seems I’m a very neglectful blog owner right now, 23 days since I last posted? Gosh..

Anyway, I have now been on hormone replacement therapy for a couple of days over a month – things seem to be happening a lot more now.

I was told by other transgender women that my skin would be one of the first changes I’d notice, they were all right. Within 2 weeks, I could feel my skin getting softer. 4 Weeks in, my skin feels like I’m a newborn in comparison to how it was before HRT.

The hair on my arms, legs and the little bit of hair I have on my body seems to be getting a lot lighter and feels a lot softer. I can’t say I’ve noticed any massive difference with the hair on my head aside from it feeling softer. I started losing a bit of hair from my hairline about 6 months ago, I’m hoping that very minor damage may repair with the HRT – I’ve heard mixed things about this. I didn’t lose much so it’s not a big deal if nothing happens there.

It’s safe to say that my breasts are firing up for growth, I knock them once in a while and there’s a very odd, pain-like sensation that lingers for a few seconds. Bring on the growth, I say!

As for psychological changes.. I spent an entire day crying over nothing a couple of weeks ago, I’m much more prone to crying over stupid things now & I feel a lot more ‘mushy’ and ‘needy’ than I did before I started the HRT. My moods are everywhere over the last few days, but all in all – I feel amazing, starting hormones was one of the best decisions I have ever made and the changes have only just begun.

I’m gonna try posting here more often, there’s not really a lot to talk about right now though. Since finishing college I haven’t really done much, other than produce music and catch up with friends. Hopefully I’ll be back in college by the very start of September, that’ll be fun.
