Hey everyone,
Just curious about how common it is to have hormonal imbalances pre-transition.

I'll never know because my doctor never chose to do bloodwork pre-T. I'll be finding out my levels for the first time ever in the next month.

I had the testosterone levels of an 12 year old boy before I started HRT.

"Some other hormone anomaly (explain in comment)"

I had excessively high testosterone levels.  That wasn't an option for the poll.
Ill no longer be defined by my condition. From now on, I'm just, Kate.

not excessive, but on the upper end for my age. In a month I have another blood draw scheduled. It should be lower from spiro, I'll just have to see what lower doses can do.

I also had very high T levels when they drew blood to establish my baseline. It took awhile for them to enter and stay in the female range.
