Starting HRT at 17 vs 18
« on: March 02, 2017, 08:06:57 pm »

I've been done growing height wise since I was 14 (I'm positive). I have a full beard, & chest hair so I'm pretty much done with puberty. I just want to know what the difference would be to start HRT after high school. Would there be big differences? Thanks :)

Well you may think you are done with puberty and such but you are not. Testosterone will still have a growing impact on you for a few more years. Tho, the bulk of the damage (assuimg you like me hate facial hair and body hair ect). In that case nah, not much else will change that dramatically. Still, the sooner one can start on HRT the better IMO

How about hip growth? Will I get some more now if I started or will it be around the same as if I started at 18.
