Sophiaprincess,  I, too, think that the changes are amazing!  I don't know how you did it, but you made a pretty tough looking guy into a beautiful young woman!

Hello ladies, today I've been on HRT 15 days, WOW, what a ride already! Can definitely feel emotional changes, today I blurted out something to a male friend of mine and he laughed because he knows I'd never say something like that Pre-HRT! I've had A LOT of breast growth in the last 2 weeks but lost the euphoric feeling when I make my E pill. Spiro has taken a back seat also, I no longer have to urinate 10 to 15 X a day! So some ups and a few downs, but generally a positive experience. I'm still a little scared I'm going to start puking my guts out some morning but even that would be a small price to pay for becoming a princess.

I can tell there are changes going on inside my body, I can feel them. Had my E level checked couple days ago: 205.9 my T level won't be back until Monday or Tuesday.

The train is moving along the tracks nicely. I've been enjoying the view from my pullman car, complete with pink roses and champagne while prince charming feeds me grapes. Life is (almost) perfect!

Onward girls!

You did not read all the way to the end of the princess story, because right at the end it says "princesses, kissed by estrogen, don't puke" (the ones that need to puke were kissed by a frog)

Move on, you are on the right track!

Got results back from E and T levels:



My Dr hasn't said anything except my E levels looked good. I'm on oral tablets for E and Spiro. Can't complain since my body has leveled off mood swing wise and I'm urinating at regular intervals. One little episode I had thankfully I was alone and felt like I wanted to tear the planet a new one!!! Other than that I've had it pretty easy so I'm thankful.

Feel free to chime in about my results since I'm a novice.

Hello everyone, today marks one month HRT. Took a bunch of pics, not many physical changes but can feel small ones. Overall great mood, head clear, feel great. Softer skin for sure, probably most notable physical change. Continue to enjoy the E train, champagne in hand!

Thanks Liz. Definitely been an interesting ride so far. I'm having fun putting together my before/after pics so I can create a transition video. I figure I have one shot to get the video right, might as well take a lot of photos!

You are lucky!  I still don't feel any definite change, large enough to put my finger on!  Not even now, after a month without balls and with the double dose of estrogen don't I really feel something that was not there prior to starting hormones!

Congratulations!  If my blood tests come back good this Monday I will start with an E-patch (my doc wanted my on Spiro for 6 weeks first).  I've enjoyed reading your thread to look for things to anticipate!

Jeal, my experience thus far has been quite exciting. I never thought I was going to be in pill form estrogen and that's exactly what my Endo prescribed. I was kind of shocked when she said she was writing pill prescriptions. Just goes to show you never know what is in the cards unless you ask for a specific form. First week was a bit rough acclimating to different changes and all. For me negative side effects were gone by the second week. From what I understand that's definitely not the norm. I've leveled off quite nicely and enjoying the nice E train ride.

One thing I do miss was the slightly euphoric feeling when I took my estrogen. I'd get a little "high"...almost laughing gas feeling for hours but that also faded to nothing. I think I'm in for the long haul at this point.

I'm excited for you as you start. Please share your experiences if you're interested.

Hello everyone, it's been just over a month since I started HRT. I can see some small changes. Yesterday a family member asked me if my current picture was from 2002 when I lived in Boston. She didn't believe it was taken two days ago. Looks like those two pictures could be from uncle, nephew, maybe even father/son.

The pic of me in the maroon sweater is as masculine as I can get even when I try. The man is slowly slipping away to retirement.

Stay beautiful.

Isn't that a sad thing?  I was hoping to use the guy presence for way longer, to be able to go to auto repair shops in guy mode, etc!
I had to get a blood test (the one month after the orchi test) today, and because my gender marker has not been changed tet, the test lab still have me as Mr <dead name>.  They have a large waiting area, and call the people up by Mr XX or Ma'am XX.  I went dressed as guyish as I could (clogs, jeans and a Jjans jacked with a t-shirt under it), because I did not want them to call Mr.XX and up comes this older woman.  Anyway, the receptionist called Mr??? , looked up stopped mid sentence,  and corrected herself to Ma'am XXX!
The guy for sure is slipping away!

Hello everyone, wanted to provide an update on my new job. As some of you know I recently left a 100K plus a year job to set myself free. It was a very painful decision but necessary to continue on my journey. I'm SOOO glad I took this leap of faith because it's opened a lot of doors since I started back in healthcare.
Last week I joined my new office of all females and they have been great! I love all the fashion and hair advice I get. Most importantly I've become a valued member of our team. I solve problems and have gained the respect of my colleagues. As far as my co-workers are concerned, I'm simply another girl in the office and I couldn't be happier.

I want to thank everyone on this forum for encouraging me to make good, intelligent, educated decisions.  :-*
Your support and guidance are very important to me and I'm grateful to have great friends as my journey only gets better.

Hello again Sophia

I am truly happy for you that your first week in your new job has proved so rewarding both in terms of the work and socially with your colleagues that such you are quite correctly another girl in the office.

I wish you continued happiness inside and outside work.

Hugs

Thanks Pamela, I enjoy everyone's input. Received an e-mail this afternoon from the VP of my organization that an executive committee has been selected to review my transgender workplace workshop. I'm set to present my proposal to the board 1st week of May. I'm a bit nervous and excited at the same time. If the committee approves my workshop proposal I'll have the opportunity to present to medical professionals about transgender working relationships, caring for a TG co-worker and disseminate information about what it means to be TG. I'm excited I have the opportunity to breathe life in to a topic not regularly discussed.

I've been working on this presentation for several weeks already. I'd like to thank the people from this forum who contributed ideas and their time, I couldn't have done it without you.
