Side effects of HRT and what happens when you detransition?
« on: January 18, 2018, 12:02:21 pm »
Hey everyone!

I wanted to ask about the effects and side effects of hrt for mtf trans people.

Also, what will happen if one stops taking hormones? Will everything go the way ut was before? Or are there any permanent changes to your body made by hrt?

I want to start in stealth and delay people knowing about it for as long as I can. Usually how long can a person go without other people noticing changes made by hrt?

Are there any long term harms from hrt or any complications in old age?

I'm want to start hrt soon and just want to be properly informed before I take the step; and while Google is pretty informative, I would love to hear everyone's personal opinion here..

Thanks!

In my personal experience the only thing that doesn’t reverse is breast development.  They will shrink some but the breast tissue is there to stay.

The negative is that whatever dysphoria you originally had comes back, seemingly worse than ever.

Love is not obedience, conformity, or submission. It is a counterfeit love that is contingent upon authority, punishment, or reward. True love is respect and admiration, compassion and kindness, freely given by a healthy, unafraid human being....  - Dan Barker
