    Frustrated

    I'm supposed to be starting testosterone Monday, I have an appointment for a nurse to teach me how to do injections. But because of a pharmacy mess up I might not have the testosterone on time and may have to reschedule. It'd only be around another week but I was so excited and being autistic makes little things like this much harder to cope with :( #Transgender #trans #HormoneReplacementTherapy

    Is there a perimenopause group on the Mighty? I know there's a few private ones on FB, but I quit FB. Anyone else feel like their losing their minds while going through this or have spouses going through it?

    are you non-binary and have thoughts on hormone therapy?

    only recently have I become aware, or allowed myself to be okay with it, hat I am interested in hormone therapy. I believe I look too feminine and want to masculinize my body. I love my body, but I wish I could grow a beard. I wish my voice was deeper. I want to grow more muscle mass. chest hair would be cool too. but I am afraid of the unknown. what if I hate it? what if I don’t become what I imagine in my head? what if my beard is patchy? I don’t want my sex parts to change but I want my body to.

    have you thought about hormone therapy? do you full dose or micro dose? or have you decided against hormones?

    Seems weird to be glad I got my period...

    After 8 months on hormone replacement therapy, I finally had a normal menstrual cycle this month. It seems like a little thing, but I spent a long time having increasingly erratic mood swings and depersonalization on occasion. I thought it was a change in my mental health, but my psyciatrist encourages me to look for a medical explanation. Turns out I have almost no testosterone in my body. Even women should have a certain level of testosterone, but I had way too little, so I was diagnosed with a hormone imbalance, likely due to changes in my brain. I'm now using birth control, not to prevent pregnancy, but to alter my hormone levels. It took a lot of doctors and a lot of medications and a lot of discouragement, but this month was the old normal cycle I remember. So yes, I'm doing the happy dance. It's a little thing, but I feel more like myself. #HormoneReplacementTherapy #hormoneimbalance #moodswingsgalore #BrainAbnormality #alzheimers #AlzheimersDisease #earlyonsetalzheimersdisease #GeneticMutation
