Tenderness after the first 2 weeks and felt the little ball thing on the 3rd week.

8 months HRT and I'm still an AA.
I used to think I was an A, but I measured wrong.

Could feel the bud after a month or so. Still feels the same a year in and the doc says they are still going strong. ^^
It never really "hurt" per se. Feels tight. But when I poke them/bump into something it feels sorta like a bruise.

It started about 2-3 months in and it has been over 4 years and they are still growing. Currently a 42DD and trust me you don't want them this big. They are always in the way.

47yo

On hormones for about 2 months now.

Moderately overweight

Itchy nips within 2 weeks

Soreness/golf-ball sized firmness behind nips, about 1 month in.

Boobs don't bounce or jiggle yet, but they do noticeably protrude from the chest. I have a "valley" between them. Small valley, but there nonetheless.  :)

Yes, they are sore like a bruise.

Thanks for the replies. I was afraid it was just wishful thinking on my part. Since I started out with "moobs" anyway, I don't have to worry about the fat getting there! ;-)

Thanks,

My experiance with boobs is the following.
Sore and throbbing by the 2nd day, by the first week I felt small lump forming, now I have puffy nips, half tennis ball sized buds. Ive noticed they shrink in the day, and swell up at night, they tend to be tender at night to, hurts just turning over as they swing about, where as during the day they dont bother me at all unless I poke em.
Umm..also if I squeeze em some clear stuff comes out the nipple and surrounding bit.
Oh if they get played with for 5 mins or so they get overly sensitive and then everything feels like sandpaper!
This is just on fin though, not full hrt.

I've been on Estradot for 3 weeks now, and as far as i can see i have had slight over all breast size increase. my question is, when did everyone start taking testosterone blockers? Is this something that i should be doing now already? ???

I noticed growth around 2 weeks and started to get pain behind the nipple around 2.5-3 months. I've heard the pain usually comes around 3, but age, genetics, yada yada makes a difference.


It's been the same for me. Sore and tender nipples at about week 2 and noticeable breast buds at week 3. I've been on Estradiol (injections), Spiro, and Progesterone for a little over a month. It all actually kind of crept up on me. One day a friend was checking in on the changes and said they noticed through my shirt that they look a little different and it was true. However, they seemed bigger/more swollen last week... I'm wondering if it's a cycle thing that's trying to start because most of the women I know have their periods during the last week of the month.

For me, I started both at the same time. (Spiro and E)

My doc said transitioning involves two meds: E to increase the estrogen, and an anti-androgen to reduce T levels, so I got both. Some docs may not use this regimen, as transitioning is still very much an "art" not a "science."

But it sounds reasonable...plus I *HATE* having testosterone in my system, and I told him that!

for me, I noticed the nipple get puffy really quick, and within a month ive had soft tissue growth in the area, but the breast buds started growing, around week 5.
I think I really hate just about everything today >:(

I guess mine started growing around 3 months in. They were noticeable at 4.5 months. I will say, they grow separately and at their own pace left leads, right was slightly smaller for a while but seems to have evened out. At 7 months they fill an a cup bra. Im 21 years old, 5'9.5" and 145lbs, bmi around 21. Im a healthy weight without much fat. im pleased with them and think its possible they are slower because of my build, but probably not by much.

Mine started to grow very fast, just a couple of days in. And the pain started at about 2 weeks or so.


Still hurting as hell and grows like there is no tomorrow. I hope that they will continue like that for a while longer :D.

I try to remember, "A watched pot never boils"...seems like the girls itch, then hurt, then pause....and seemingly overnight they've grown.  A period of rest...then itching, soreness, then pause...and again they grow.

But try not to dwell on them. A peek and a daily massage (like if you're doing a breast exam) seems to help both them and the person from whom they're developing.

Greater sensitivity to my nipples by 2 weeks, and pain at 3 weeks. Flat-out noticeable growth around 5 weeks. I'm coming up on week 8 and it's quite noticeable.

I was on spiro (low dose) for a month before.

I am 50 yrs of age. I started my HRT at the end of March 2012.
In Apr-May-Jun I started on Spiro.
Jul-Aug-Sept (current) on Estrace (Estradiol).
My breast buds started about 2 months ago. In the last month alone the growth is astonishing.
My buds are the size of peach pits at this point and extremely tender.
My areolas are 50% larger than pre-hrt. My nipples are also 50% larger and overall breast tissue is developed to A cups. My small breasts literally levitate. This is truly amazing and frightening for me.
Although I have dreamed of this all my life, the reality of my new breasts is in advance of my mind adjusting to the changes. I hope my therapist sessions will help.
I have also noticed how clumsily I move my arms. It seems almost every time I move my arms across my body, I am bumping into my breasts. This is incredible as I am now learning all over again how to move and am quickly learning to be very careful.
When I sleep on my side I am acutely aware of my little breasts falling slightly under their own gravity.
Is wearing a bra while sleeping an ok thing to do? I mean so I dont bump them in my sleep?

Other obervances at my 6 month interval....
My face is changing and softening somewhat. I barely recognize myself when I walk past a mirror.
There seems to be new lines on my face. Is it just my age? or does the hormones age us?
My skin overall softened dramatically after only one month on Spiro.
Facial hair grows slower. My hands and feet seem slighly younger and my fingers slightly thinner.
My butt is slightly larger, rounder.
I am very tired all the time. I experience mild chest pains like in my heart and I am wondering if my dosage is too high?
My legs seem to be 1/3 thinner and this is truly amazing. Real girl legs, yehoo!
Erections are barely possible and only with great effort. I am still capable of orgasm but the erectile tissue is barely working and the ejaculate is no more than a thimbal full of seminal fluid.
Although I think and fantasize about sex, I have almost no desire for it at this time.
I am completely unable to have penetrative sex with my partner for the last 4 months.
I am eating way too much since I quit smoking 6 months ago and have a real problem to eat less despite seeing a dietician.
I have also become far more emotional. I cry or feel like crying over trifles....weird. It is really hard now to not get emotional. Perhaps it is the stress, anticipation of change, worry of the future and the worry of losing more friends that is causing this lack of self-esteem.
My father has almost dis-owned me and he is the only family i have left. This is the worst of it.
I have lost many friends who at first assured me of their loyalty, then quietly vanished one by one.
I have been out of work for 18 months and this is not good.
Have not legally changed my name as yet and live 50-50 m & f.
I am truly in the neutral zone.
I am sorry to digress beyond the thread topic but I am new here so please forgive me.
I hope things go better soon and thanks to all of you brave people who kindly share your progress.
-Trish

I've got a rather detailed accounting of what I experienced a few threads down, but yea, all of that is very normal. I'm just over two years and my chest is still growing, I'm an A cup and am starting to wonder if I'll ever pass this size. The ball does form from time to time and I get really sore for a few weeks then it goes away and there's slight growth. Every few months it happens.
