For the TS - How did you/do you get your HRT?

So how did you obtain your hormones?  Remember there is no need to post a reply to your vote.

I get mine with a script.  In Canada hormones are readily available and doctors in general will prescribe them as long as there is no risk to the patient from complications.  A Dr. Endo, or Pshrink can write the script, and they are very inexpensive.  Some Dr and endo's require therapy some don't.  My first Dr wanted me in therapy, my second did not.

I actually had visited Susans before ever starting hormones and I knew the correct method for obtaining them and followed along that.

I went the through the process to do it the right way... which was very hard for me financialy and just in genral as Im a do it yourselfer type.  So many times I was tempted to walk across the border and sneak them back but fear of being caught and the warnings I read everywhere especialy here stopped me. I do buy  them across the border now due to the saveings but I can declair them to customs and not wory about it  :)

pardon my horable spelling *shrugs*

Long story short--

When my first therapist felt I was ready, I was given a URL to order my meds.

When I went locally for my 6-month labs, the trans doctor I went to asked for the hormone letter from my therapist.  This eventually led to switching therapists and getting the SOC-compliant letter.

Haven't started yet, but plan to very shortly.  I'll be getting mine via prescription and informed consent.
I'm a 65 year old male who has been thinking about SRS for many years.  I also was a  full cross dresser for a few years.  I wear a bra, pantyhose and nail polish daily because it just feels right.

Started HRT April 17, 2019.

I did informed consent so I dodged all the hoops. If I did not find one I was going to go through the black market.

Prescription, was relatively simple to start. Benefits of the time wee live in, I suppose.
