mtf hrt and varicose veins?
« on: February 22, 2018, 07:06:49 pm »
Hello everyone!

My name is Jenny, I'm 24 years old MTF female who has started medical transition 5 month ago.
My endocrinologist started me on Progynova (oestradiol), and in a few months I have also started taking Progesterone and Spiro (T-blockers) by his guidance and instruction.
Overal I feel myself perfect! Better than ever in my life. I was so happy I started HRT, I even lost my laziness and started to do fitness and yoga every day!

Though recently I realize I have something like varicose veins on my chest/breast area. I'm not sure if it was there before... But I'm really scared now what to think etc. Is this a common thing? Or should I see my doctor ASAP?

Thanks for sharing your experience  :)

Welcome to Susan's Place. Veins can show for a couple of reasons if you lose weight or if your already fairly slim and your fat moves to other areas of your body, it's possible for veins that are already there to become visible. Its also possible that the growth process can cause veins to become larger in order to provide more blood for development. As that's not normally an areas where you develop varicose veins, it's likely what your seeing is normal. On the other hand, to ease your mind you might want to schedule a doctors visit.

Unfortunately I noticed varicose veins too. My legs in general look pretty good but those veins are really bothering me...
