Did anyone else find they got more screamish after starting mtf hrt? Before I could watch fly-on-the-wall medical stuff on TV without flinching,  now it really makes me grimace.

My squeamishness was driven out of me as a teenager when I watched my grandfather do an autopsy on some guy that had been shot in the chest.

I will admit to feeling a little lightheaded at the beginning.  He asked the sheriff to stand next to me in case I passed out.  LOL.  I came close but fortunately remained standing.

Quick update: about 6 weeks into HRT. Aside previous comments,  I've noticed in the last few days, my emotions seem a little closer to the surface. Not different or stronger,  just that the thick wall that used to keep them all but inaccessible seems a bit thinner. Along with this I seem to be craving hugs,  this from someone who had real issues with any physical contact,  even with family.

Hi Megan,

  I think you will soon if not already notice your skin feeling softer and your moods mellowing. Things may be a bit slower with a low dose but from what I hear things are still going to be happening....good things. You may feel you're on the kiddie ride with your dose, but you can still enjoy it.

  Hugs,
   Laurie

I'm into my 5th week and my skin is definitely softer and I'm calmer (even though a bunny can make me cry).  My breasts look a bit puffy, but might be nothing. 
Smiles, Jessica 💁

  Hi Meagan,

  Glad to read that you are feeling and experiencing more  with your hrt. I enjoy you sharing your journey with us as it unfolds. And yes, it is an interesting ride to say the least. You've so much more to discover. Not just about the joys of HRT but of yourself. I hope you find it as wonderful as I am.

  Hugs,
    Laurie

Yes it is an amazing ride! I'm so incredibly happy! I do have to admit it's due a lot from the support I have from my wife.  I love her so.
Hugs, Jessica 🙋🏼

It's wierd when I step back and think what I'm doing seems surreal,  but every step that lead me to this point has been a positive one in learning and discovering myself. With HRT I feel a bit more like a passenger than the driver,  which isn't that comfortable for me,  but it gives me more time to enjoy the scenery

  I believe that is why those who have been through this already tell us to  "Sit back and enjoy the ride". I'm only a few months ahead of you, so I have more to experience also, but I can still say that to you and sit back enjoying my ride as I share yours through your thread. Thank you for sharing your own journey with us all.

  Hugs,
   Laurie

Quick update: Tried the old equipment for the first time in a week last night (still no drive to do this,  but just checking if it still works!). I'll admit to being doubtful of others comments on how their orgasm has changed on HRT,  but when I finally got there (took longer than normal) ,  it certainly felt quite different and unlike ever before. Milder,  more diffuse and less focused,  but longer lasting.

Hi Megan 🙋🏼 Did you use a little blue pill to help you?  I've been wondering the same.

My Progynova (E) is in little blue pills  but those aren't the ones your taking about are you .
While I don't get any unwanted action down below now. I can still currently 'stand-up'  with some mental and physical stimulation.
My biggest problem is actually getting to climax without getting bored and loosing interest. It's really become a chore just to check if it still works.

As of today I am exactly one month on estradiol HRT and now understand several things about my ex-wife and previous girlfriends.  And that includes things they needed in order to not get bored and lose interest. 
Assigned male at birth 1963.  Decided I wanted to be a girl in 1971.  Laser 2014-16, electrolysis 2015-17, blepharoplasty 2016, HRT July 24, 2017.  Currently part time, will be FT 2018.

I am also more understanding of women's issues. Not just being empathic, but understanding.  I'm sure that certain social aspects that women have faced during history will have a profound effect in how I'm treated and perceived. 
Oh and "my" blue pill and hrt have helped in prolonging orgasm so my wife has more time to be satisfied.
Hugs, Jessica 💁

Quick update: Heading towards 2 months on E,  and a little less on AAs. Still few physical changes,  skin a little softer,  and chest hair growth may have slowed. Reduction in skin oiliness persists,  and I still get occasional mild hot flushes,  but the palpitations I had initially have ceased.
Mentally,  I'm certainly getting more emotional.  I'm not crying lots,  but come close quite often.
I also feel like I'm more reactive to situations,  and a little less measured in my responses.

 Hi Megan (there Moaaaani, I got it right :P )

  It sure sounds like your on your way. btw just want to say your looking better in your avatar too. I'm glad to read your undesirable effects are subsiding and the better ones are well, getting better. The emotions are one of the first other girls mention as you well know so you are on track there. The tendency  to feel them more is exactly what I noticed too. I was always prone to watery eyes when watching tearjerker tv shows, but on E it intensified to tears actually running down my cheeks. After the doc doubled my dose it got even worse. Now I do not need those intentional tear inducing shows. Oh no, I get "emotional" to everyday stimuli. And if something is of real concern to me and I think, "I want to cry" I usually will. I've never experienced a cry on demand ability before. LOL It's not funny though. I cry because I hurt.  I also experience ocular leaks when I see or read something good or happy.  My gosh sometimes I just think I am a walking emotional wreck and today,  I start another increase in my E. I wonder what that will do for my emotions?

  Megan, you are definitely not alone in these strange happenings. Just think what you have to look forward to, girl.  As they say, more shall be revealed. Enjoy it Megan.

 Hugs,
   Laurie

Lawry ,  you and so many others have shared so much here, that I feel totally comfortable with where I am.
I'm so glad to finally feel some emotion,  I felt like a stone with T in my system,  never again!
