Hormone Update #5 (Almost Three Months on HRT)

=> Two Months Ago…

So, it's been some time since I wrote the last update. A lot has changed, and I’m really happy about all of it!

The most impactful effect of HRT so far has been the mental effects. I am feeling much more connected to my emotions. I cry more easily now, which has led to some problems with managing all my new emotions. But it is good to be able to cry, the threshold at which I can choose to let out my emotions through tears is now much lower and at a level I’m more comfortable with.

It was listed as an effect on the internet, but I didn’t really expect my skin to change, but I feel like it’s definitely become more smooth, especially on my arms. Unexpected, but I’m the last one to complain about it.

In terms of breast growth: without going into much detail, a lot has happened, and I’m very happy about it!

I will soon have an appointment with my endocrinologist where we will check my sex hormone levels as well as levels of other body functions, and from then we will see whether adjustments will be necessary. All I can say is that right now I’m very happy with the decision to start HRT and I really don’t want to stop!
