A bit of shameless self-promotion. I've just completed my first novel, Becoming Alec.
I had my first shot a couple days ago on April 12th. My doc started me low, only 60 every 2 weeks just for the first few shots. I haven't really felt any different except just overall happiness and a weight off my shoulders. Hopefully I'll see something soon, maybe just 1 extra hair would be nice! I'm really excited to see some changes. Anyways, can I be added to the list? Thanks!
Hi. I'm 26, pre-T, post-hysto, only out to friends FTM. I have been in therapy specifically for gender stuff since October. My therapist suggested writing something like a research paper about Testosterone to help me make the decision and to educate me about all of the pros and cons of hormone therapy. Since I've already graduated from college, the academic research that I'd love to do is not the most accessible now. I'm looking for resources, mostly online, that will help me with this project. And, of course, when I'm done, I'll post it here so others' can have the info. Anyone have any good links that cite accurate info on T and it's effects? I'll keep you posted with what I find, because I don't think the decision to take T is a very serious one, and it isn't super easy for some of us to take the leap.
hi folks. welcome.
this is a place for people (i assume we're mostly FTMs but others are welcome) who are new to testosterone therapy for masculinizing effects, or thinking of starting.
other message boards are more restrictive about how and what you can say and that's ok. this is a space where you can say anything about your worries or fears about starting t.
please read the guidelines i posted and let me know what you think.
