Nice to hear from you, Chelsea.

I am sorry you hurt your back and that you cannot work but at least you can get plenty of rest after working those long hours.

Please try not to worry about what people may think due to your HRT physical changes; I know it is difficult to ignore the matter completely but you are on your way to living as the woman you were always meant to be. Take heart and enjoy the ride.

Hugs to you

Pamela

Chelsea, thank you for updating your thread.  I am sorry to hear about your back injury.  Hopefully, it will be okay in a few days.

I am not surprised that you are getting reactions from other people.  As we have been telling you for a while, you are beautiful.  Continuing to present as male must be difficult. 

I am glad the PBJ diet is working for you.

Hi Chelsea,

Glad that your ok, well apart from your back x.
Been wondering if you're ok after all that's happened so really am relieved that you've replied again.
Fall is just around the corner so might make it easier hiding your new developments under loose clothing, hopefully that'll give you more time to prepare for the bright future you face.

Glad your back

Sophie

Back in May I told my nieces Joni and Beth about me transitioning. That was just about 4 months ago. I don't know if you girls remember but this morning Beth came over to check on me because I hurt my back. I told her on May 5th and she has not seen me sense then until today. The very first words out of her mouth was " OMG you look just like a girl! " I was in full guy mode with my pj's on no makeup, hair a mess and all. She ask if anyone else had said anything yet and I told her about the funny looks I got a couple times. Is it possible that I'm getting close to male fail this early? Either way with back pain and all that made my day. She might have just been trying to make me feel good I don't know. It worked cause I cried for 10 minuets lol.

I just wanted to share the experience with her this morning. No matter how bad I'm having it right now I am so happy with my results so far. Those little blue pills are amazing.

Hugs,
 Chelsea

Definitely possible, it sneaks up on you. I've gotten it a few times now though it usually doesn't last.

Believe it!  It does sneak up and others that see you infrequently will certainly know something is up.

Rest well!

Dear Chelsea:
Aside from other life issues that are on your mind, this update of yours is wonderful to read. Your experience of being misgendered and male-fail is an important milestone in your early journey. 
It is as @JudiBlueEyes stated in her reply post:
   "Believe it!  It does sneak up and others that see you infrequently will certainly know something is up."

So, i am still wondering if you are going to that car show this month ??? I would imagine that you might consider going as Chelsea ... just look in the mirror...  male-fail will start becoming more common as you are out and about.

Thanks you again for keeping your thread alive with your recent postings....
Hugs and well wishes as always,
Danielle

Girls there is something very very heavy on my mind. This might not be the right place and I hope that it does not offend any of you. I was told by a few people today that are trans that after two years of hormones your "parts" i will call them will not function at all anymore. Yes I know most of you don't care and want the thing gone as fast as you can but I am different just like each person. If this is true then I have a life changing decision to make very soon. I have no interest in transitioning into a girl or staying a guy if this is true and I sincerely mean this with the bottom of my heart. Porn stars do this everyday and some are in their 50's. Someone please tell me that's BS. We all have things that are life depending important to us and I have mine. Please do not judge me because of this. I am a very sweet person and need to know.

Dear Chelsea: 
I obviously can not tell you what will happen in your body, you should pose that question and discussion
with your HRT doctor.

I can however tell you about my experience.   At about 6 to 7 months of HRT I could no longer have an erection, no morning wood, no nothing!!!   

Many trans-women....pre-transition  or early transistioners will go to a sperm bank while things are still working so later on if they wish to father a child it will then be possible.
On the other hand I have heard of some late transistion trans-women that are still able to have penetrative sex and active sperm....    so again, to get the correct information for you specifically, your body and your HRT regimen.... you certainly need to talk to your  HRT doctor.

I hope this helps,   please do not rely on hearsay or non-medical advice or others reported experiences....  you have your own unique body.   Talk to your doctor.... please.

Hugs and well wishes,
Danielle

God I hope not. But as my luck goes your probably right. Its pretty damn hard to shoot pool with a rope.
I called the doctor today and she said it depends on the person that everyone is different. Hope nobody thinks differently of me because im the same person. I got called a few bad names on Facebook about the same thing but its my life and i will do with it what I need to to be happy.

Honestly, it's baloney!  It really does depend on the individual.  I'm a tiny bit over 2 year in and still fucntional.  Granted the mood needs to be there for anything to rise to the occasion, but all the plumbing works.

Unfortunately there is no hard and fast answer since we are all different.  The said, there are enough cases where function is maintained, albeit at a different level (as Amberwaves noted).  I would certainly not stress over this.  Live your life as you want and deal with things as they arise.

Thank you Judi, Amber, Danielle. I really hope I did not offend anyone with that post. Im the same person. I thought I was getting the emotional part under control but today I have been a mess. Laying here in bed with nothing to do but think about stuff makes it worse, Plus I got called disgusting buy a couple people on FaceBook. No worries though I'm tough because I have to be.

Hugs,

Hi Chelsea,

No offence taken at all. Nobody here is judging you. It is your life and we all love you for who you are. Personally, I have no use for that thing but you are your own person and have your own requirements. The comments you got on Facebook are not from people I would call friends.

As for your question about function, we are all different and proper medical advice is the best option. I have read reports from people that they have maintained function many years after HRT. Some have said they need a little extra help from a different kind of blue pill, like viagra, but aside from that everything still works. If you are considering children, then freezing some sperm may be something for you to look into sooner rather than later.

Good luck with this part of your journey.

Oh, and congratulations on the male fail comments from your niece. It feels nice, doesn’t it!

Hugs,
Jayne

Anyone trans who judges you for that is a gatekeeping jerk and not worthy of your time anymore than TERFs and other transphobes are. You do what is right for you, end of story.

As for time line, I'm going on 8 months and everything still works, just not a lot of interest. I mean, I guess it really comes down to are you talking about kids or sex. I doubt I could effectively bank anything (or that it would be viable) at this point, but... it works. And continues to work for many people, particularly with the aid of medicine or low levels of Progesterone or even T.

Congratulations Chelsea on the malefail - it will creep up on you gradually - but when it happens it is a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

Noone on Susans should judge for anything and your view on function is shared by many. Personally I have lost function and am happy with that but all you can do is what you have done already which is to maintain communication with your doctor and if you were to feel loss of function pending, your doctor should be able to prescribe suitable medication to prevent.

Wishing you well as always. Hugs to you.

@Chelsea
Dear Chelsea:
Please read carefully at all of your recent replies relating to your concern about your male bits.
It should be apparent to you now that there is not a standard answer to your question....  as you read, for some (including myself) function was all but lost at the 6 month point of HRT, for others they reported that they still have function...   that is why I strongly suggested that more conversation with YOUR doctor is required if you want a medically accurate answer specific to you. 
For many of us trans-women the loss of male function is usually a blessing but for others it like yourself it is an obviously an important issue.  Your doctor is where you will get the answer that you require.

Please, no embarrassment, no offense taken, none of that here, you are among like-mind friends here that are on the same journey that you have embarked on.   We are all together on this...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts... again, no embarrassment, no offense taken by any of us.
Hugs,
Danielle

Thank you every one.  I'm fine for now and everything works fine. Those same girls that called me disgusting told me good luck that its going to stop no matter who you are and I freaked out. lol I will just have to wait and see.
I so need to get back to work. Been in bed for 4 days now but I can walk a little. Far from hard work though.
I appreciate all of the input!
