1st meeting with HRT doc
« on: April 20, 2021, 10:20:50 am »
Met the doc yesterday for HRT. Need to read and sign a consent form, which I already had the answers to anyway, as any intelligent person considering all this would. Then I had blood tests.
 They use Spiro and estrogen, though I don't know if I'll get the pill or patch. I'd rather do the pills as I'm not good with patches and such. The blood work will probably determine the form of estrogen. I'll know pretty soon.they seemed a bit ill at ease. I wonder how many people they see over 40 for gender transition. They weren't impolite, just sort of disquieted. but they're going to love me.

@iskra I'm 68, and us older transitioners are not uncommon. I hope they get more comfortable as you embark on this adventure.

Rock on, @iskra! Big doin's.

Can't rule out shots if you have an appetite for that sort of thing. All sorts of options.
