Helloo - my first post here yaay.

Anyways just a few questions.
Firstly, just wanted to know if anyone else has had similar experience to me. I'm only just 20, having started HRT a month and a half ago, and noticed nipple sensitivity for the first week, and breast buds by week 2. They have now grown much larger, although the left is doing much better than right (will these even up??). There is some breast 'filling' going on, more in left than right, as with the buds. I've also noticed MUCH testicular atrophy in this absolutely tiny time already (left more than right interestingly enough ha). Skin softer, as with usual stuff...etc. How abnormal is this fast breast growth?? Has anyone in a similar position achieved very nice results with growth? My chest is somewhat large and would be nice to have a B cup for proportion!

Just wondering how abnormal this is lol. In terms of my medication, I'm not even on anti androgen.. Literally only on estradiol. I've heard stories of people waiting for breast growth for MONTHS before anything but for me it seems completely COMPLETELY unexpectedly fast...

But anyways... Yeah. I've also noticed that now the nipples are becoming softer above the buds - do people find this is the case normally? Does this mean they are starting to fill out/buds are maturing? Also how long do the buds last? They are kinda painful at times.... :/

Thankss x

Ohh also - Erections v difficult now, takes much effort. Still have v good/comfortable sex drive, which has reduced from needing to 'release' about 4/5 times a day to once/day if that.

Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

Everything sounds about right so far.

Sensitivity within a week of starting and growth visible to me within the month.
Don't worry as things sound normal so far.

A long way to go so be patient.

So long and thanks for all the fish

I don't know about "normal" - I think it's within the range of normal, at least - but I had breast buds and visible growth by day 5. (I'm a 42DDD now at 4 years in, and still growing a little.) I bet it's a good sign for you. :) Unfortunately, the buds lasted about three years for me, although the more breast tissue filled in around them the less obvious and vulnerable they were.

Yes, they will probably mostly even out, although even cis women usually have one breast slightly bigger than the other.

I've also ever been on E only, and a very very low dose at that.

Thanks for the replies everyone!

@Jenna Marie - so you mean the breast tissue did fill in over time just constantly but slowly? I'm also what I think is a low dose. I did put it in the original post but admin took it out :police: Do you mind me asking how old you are and how long you've been on hrt for?

@Jessika Lin aww how long have you been on? I'm sure it'll be great for you! ;D

Yes, it did fill in constantly; very fast at first, more slowly as the years went by. I was 32 when I started HRT, and it was four years ago last month.

Yeah, we're not allowed to post dosages. All I can say is that mine is within the range prescribed to menopausal cis women - so really low.

It sounds like you are going to have some nice breasts. Good for you. Maybe being younger helps. I'm a B cup after 6 months HRT, nipples are real sensitive some days, & calm the next. Good luck GF.
mtF, mid 50's, always a girl since childhood, HRT (Spiro, E & Fin.) since 8-13. Hormone levels are t at 12 & estrogen at 186. Face lift & eye lid surgery in 2014. Abdominoplasty/tummy tuck & some facial surgery May, 2015. Life is good for me. Love long nails & handsome men! Hopeful for my GRS & a nice normal depth vagina maybe by late summer. 5' 8", 180 pounds, 14 dress size, size 9.5 shoes. I'm kind of an elegant woman & like everything pink, nice & neet. Love my nails & classic Revlon Red. Moving back to Florida, so excited but so much work moving

As others have pointed out it varies substantially from person to person. I am 45 and was on Spiro (anti-angrogen) for six weeks and estrodil for two weeks and I was between a B and a C cup. I know girls who have been on HRT for a year or more and have not experienced as much growth as I have.
