Hi Kirsten;
See my other post about Micronised Progesterone, but yes I was on an Oestradiol  only- Progynova regime for my first 4 years, initially one tablet once a day then eventually two tablets (one at 10am and one at 10pm) daily.

Obviously I cannot decribe dosages, but suffice to say that I started off on a very low dose and am now on a full strength (transition) dose.
Best
JudithLynn
Hi again Judithlynn,

 I also find full stength transitioning dose is better for general peace of mind and motivation. Having breasts and a semblance of a CIS womans figure helps a lot as well . I will trial micronised P- the feminising effects are too hard to ignore!

COPIED FROM PREVIOUS COMPARISON THREAD

KateClaire January 21st 2019

Hi all,
New to posting, but I guess this finally drew me out.  I'm 43 and have been on EV injections only the last 3 months, and on a patch for 25 days before that.  I switched due to skin irritation and because I prefer just having to remember an injection every other Sunday.  No androgen blockers or others drugs for now,  I wanted to see how E only went before adding in Spiro... as I had low E for a male starting out (around 150).  Readings in US measurements exactly a week between injections:
3+ months:
E (418)
T (15)

My doctor and I are pretty happy with these results so far, so going to continue with E only to my 6 month mark.

Thanks for tracking this!

-Kate

Here are my 0- and 3-month levels:

T:
0-month: 286 ng/dL
3-month: 59.9 ng/dL
:)


E:
0-month: 33.2pg/mL
3-month: 28.7pg/mL (yes, it went down >:( - however, this test was taken at the end of a 12-hour dosing period, i.e., just before my next dose. Moreover, I'm decently happy with the 3-month physical results.)

Hi Pamela,
Got my 6 month results about a week ago... switched over to Kaiser now, so at least they are free.  Quest was killing me out of pocket.

Estradiol: 485 pg/ml
Testosterone:  <13 ng/dL

Both of my doctors are now advising me to lower doses about 20%, trying to get down to a little more like 200ish... but we'll see what T does.  I'm on EV injections only.

Thanks!
Kate

COPIED FROM PAMELA'S HRT RECORD: POSTED BY DIETLIND April 8th at 7.08

I got my test results to today, taken about month after my orchi  The LabCorp computer must have been wondering what was going on, cause it put the typical female comparisons to my tests results!
I have 1.5 ng/dl of Dihydrotestosterone, and I am low in that, a typical adult female has 4 - 22 ng/dl
I have 5 ng/dl of testosterone, serum, typical would be 3 - 41 g/dl
I have 139. pg/ml Estradiol and am in the ovulation phase of a female which would be 85.8 - 498.0 22 pg/ml

I do think I have to watch out to not get to close with men, because I don't want to get pregnant, being in the ovulation phase and all!

Bumping me up to the double dose of E basically also doubled my Estradiol levels in my blood.  I wonder if it would go up by 50% now if I would add 1/3 more dose during the day?
What if I would need to make the decision between the same amount of estrogen with added progesterone, or no progesterone and more estrogen?

Testosterone will not play any role anymore, considering that I am even low for natal female conditions.  That seems all my adrenal glans seem to be able to produce, fine with me!
I am really wondering what else the orchi will do for me besides giving me low T and the desire to wear skirts and dresses instead of pants?
My boobs seem to still grow with the same speed they did for several years now (watching grass grow is more exciting and faster paced), they still hurt as they did for quite some time now.  At least I can get some mileage out of the bras I am buying!

Thank you to Kate Claire, Linde and GingerVicki for your results which I have added to the table.

I note Kate that yours is now the highest E reading in the table but as we all know this is not a "league table" or a "performance table" but you must be very happy at such a result as was I with mine after 6 months. Mine came down after 9 months and I know that is also your expectation.

Hugs to all

COPIED FROM PREVIOUS COMPARISON THREAD: Bobbiesj on April 10th 2019 at 12.58:

Hi Pamela,

My fourth month on HRT although the first three months were at an extremely low dosage to see how my body would react.

No negative effects, so, in March, my Doctor increased my dosage significantly.

I am providing blood work done in Jan (2 months on HRT)
Mid Jan Blood Work
Blood Work from prior to HRT start until Mid Jan Blood work
Estradiol - 27
Progesterone - 0.4
No Estrone sample taken
Testosterone - 277

April Blood Work ( 1 month on higher dosage)
Estrone = 99 pg/ml
Estradiol - 107
Progesterone - 1.10 ng/ml
Testosterone - 49 ng/dl

These are US stats

Thanks,
Bobbie
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you Bobbie for these BT results which I shall add to the 3/4 month table in due course.

Wishing you happiness and success.

Your levels after the orchi seem different to me.  I have ~5 T, and my endo keeps me on ~140 E (which is the average level of a natal women on day 10 of her ovulation period - I should be a hottie, shouldn't I?)

Linde ,
the day after orchi my endo had cut my dose by of estradiol by 75% , I was on a very high dose pre-orchi to try and suppress the T. 
Had my appointment with her today and again we are going start to increase the dose until its get to 150 that's where she wants me.
     I understand decreasing after the orchi but I felt it was too much and as my E level shows im dragging around without much energy, but im not a doctor and followed her orders on this.
   As the level increase I will feel better.
I had really hard time suppressing the T the results I posted were the closest to Pamela's time frame but I actually had blood draw every 5 to 6 weeks there were times my T skyrocketed to 800 fighting back while trying to get it down. She wanted my numbers where your are but there is only so much you can do . In the end I won with the orchi
